Reviews of Attorney Bernard Walter

"I am an attorney who recently lost a family member, but I do not work in the area of estates or probate. I enlisted Bernard's help, and I am very glad I did. The process was much more complicated than I expected, but Bernard made it look effortless. On at least two occasions, Bernard stepped in to handle emergencies (of my own creation) after hours and on very short notice. I could not have done this without his expertise."
— Chris

"It's inadequate to describe Bernard simply as a service provider, because like so many of his clients I have become a friend. Even limiting my comments to a professional relationship, it's important to say what an exceptional attorney Bernard is. His emphasis on finding solutions rather than simply "winning" has served me well, and I'm sure saved time, emotions, and money that might have been wasted. And his approach, while frequently creative, has always been honest and straightforward, while he has been tenacious in defending my interests. Bernard is dedicated to honest actions and clear communication which is rare among attorneys."
— Professor Dan S.
