“ Walter was recommended for a legal problem that I had been unable to resolve for some time. It involved a foreign debtor overseas and was potentially complicated. Walter has the matter resolved with the minimum of fuss and cost. I am glad I approached him. I would recommend him very highly! ”

 

 

 

AP, Commercial Claim client, 2017

” Walter was recommended when I was contemplating divorce. Walter advised me on the various options available and also recommended counselling as there were children involved. He in fact encouraged counselling. I am happy to say that counselling helped and I remain married and happily so. He is not just a good lawyer. He also gives his perspective as a father and a friend and I value that.”

 

 

 

AM, Divorce client, 2016

” When I was charged, I was notified by the policeman that almost all persons facing my charge would face a custodial sentence. Walter worked very hard to mitigate my plea. The Judge said on a few occasions, “This is a very well-written mitigation” . To my immense relief, I was given only a fine. I cannot thank Walter enough for never giving up and trying his very best till the very end to save me from a custodial sentence. ”

“Walter is a top commercial litigator and I would recommend him to anyone.”

” When I had a disagreement with my business partner, I approached Walter for advise. The matter was litigated in the High Court and even though I was not the aggressor, Walter secured a 6-figure payment to me. I was somewhat initially taken aback as I was worried that I would be the one who would have to make payment!

Walter is a top commercial litigator and I would recommend him to anyone.”

 

PD, Criminal Charge client, Dec 2017

“When my ex-pat husband wanted to divorce me, I was naturally lost. It was a horrible time. Luckily, a friend asked me to call Walter. He did his very best and managed to have the matter resolved amicably, at the same time ensuring that my son and I were awarded every reasonable maintenance.

Very experienced and compassionate!”

 

LD, Divorce client, June 2018

I am very happy with the division of matrimonial assets that I received. Walter is experienced in this area. You can be confident when you engage him.”

SE, Criminal Law Client, August 2018

“It was my first consultation with Mr. Walter for some legal pieces of advice. We consulted him for advices on a company issue of directorship which have some complications linked with investment. He patiently explained to us on the potential outcome of the whole scenario and what actions we can take. We managed to understand the situation with a clearer picture and how to protect ourselves in the event if we need to be involved. His explanations are clear. Really thankful for his advice.”

KKY, August 2018

“I posted a question and Walter instantaneously contacted me for a free initial consultation. He spent the time to review my documents and discussed the case before giving his assessment and recommendation. Truly appreciative of his precious time and advice. He is easy to talk to, unlike other lawyers who love to use legal jargon. Would highly recommend him to anyone who needs legal advice.”

LN, September 2018

“I approached Silvester Legal LLC on 7 September for a case of defamation. They were professional in gathering the facts and putting together a notice to be sent to the offending party that same day. The very next day, 8 September, the defamatory post was taken down. Extremely effective. I would strongly recommend Silvester Legal LLC.”

FK, September 2018

“The charges included a likely custodial sentence. Walter vowed to do his level best to remove any possibility of me going to jail. Over the course of the next 9 months, Walter spoke with the prosecution, wrote to them and reviewed the evidence at the investigating officer’s office. Once this was done, he wrote representations to the AGC. When the Judge expressed reservations, Walter dealt with this. Finally, it was only when I was assured that no custodial sentence would be imposed, did Walter agree to have me plead guilty to the charges. Walter is persistent and will fight for his clients. I am grateful that he never gave up trying his best for me.”

GF, Charges under the Road Traffic Act, March 2018
