Mr. Wallace didn't seem to prepare for court. He did not allow me to read and review my deposition given several years prior to the trial. He did not call relevant witnesses. He also allowed critical deposition testimony to be redacted without objecting at all. He actually took out a pen and helped the opposing attorney mark through a deposition so that the jury didn't hear relevant information. He was ineffective in addressing the jury. He did not have an opening or closing statement prepared. He sat during the trial and calculated the settlement amount that he requested from the jury. He refused my input on the compensation requested. He seemed to work more for the opposing side than he did me. I saw him helping the opposing attorney load his belongings into his car in the parking gargage during my trial.
Mr. Wallace represented me in a civil matter. He went well over and above the norm to help me. His knowledge of the law was outstanding, and he was very successful in my case. I can't stress enough how much Mr. Wallace helped me!
