Testimonial

I was browsing the web looking for legal advice as I was facing a likely charge from AGC after my investigation ended.

I chanced upon the silvesterlegal website’s insightful articles about the criminal process and came to this website to check reviews on Walter.

I saw many good things written about Walter and decided to write in with some details about my case in hopes of getting some legal advice.

Walter called me shortly after I sent the email and spent a good amount of time explaining to me about the potential outcomes of my cases and also gave me solid legal advice on what I should do next even though I have not indicated at all whether I would be engaging his services moving forwards.

His willingness to provide advice even before getting any confirmation on whether I would engage his services really showed me that Walter really cares beyond just seeing numbers when talking to clients.

As of now, I have yet to hear back from the AGC on their decision but if I do get charged I will definitely engage Walter to help me with my case.

I highly recommend Walter as I believe him to be an experienced litigator who actually cares about your issue and will do his level best to achieve the results you want.

I needed some professional advice when I encountered complexities with my consulting / employee contract and pay outs. Although Walter never got a firm commitment that I was going to engage him nor a commitment on how much I was comfortable to expense, he was more keen to ensure my legal rights as an individual was protected from exploitation by corporate legal counsels. His approach and mindset when he took up my case was admirable and I knew the end result whether good or bad, was going to be the best legal advice I could get. Of course, the end result was favourable but the key point here would be that I had legal support which I knew was for the best for me and not for someone else’s pocket or fame.

When the time came for me to part ways with my wife I approached Walter. He was professional and discrete. The divorce went through with minimal fuss. I am grateful that I approached him as I have heard of many people who did not have good experiences with their lawyers. I can safely assure you that this will not happen with this particular lawyer.

When I was moving jobs, I was asked to sign some documents. I needed someone to assist me to review them. Walter advised me well in the process and everything went off without any problems.
