    I have known John since I started practicing law in 1998 and can attest to the quality of representation he provides his clients. Throughout Southwestern Connecticut, John is known as a tireless defender and accomplished trial lawyer. I have seen him in the courtroom and know his reputation among the other members of the defense community. John is highly respected by the prosecutors. I highly recommend Attorney Walkley for your case.

I would recommend him without reservation.
