I retained Betsy to represent me in my divorce. My ex-husband was also an attorney. He wrote our pre-nup himself, but after we agreed to divorce, he didn't want to stand by it. Many attorneys would not go up against another attorney, but not Betsy. She fought very hard for me, for over a year, and never gave up. I would have given up way before she did, just to end it. Betsy was extremely responsive via e-mail, which I prefer. She communicated with me, in detail, until I completely understood and I had no more questions, comments or concerns. I never felt cut off or that she was watching the clock. I am also in the legal field, and I have never known an attorney to be so dedicated to their client. She answered e-mails almost immediately, any time of the day, evening, and weekends. The result: My husband ended up having to pay more money than if he had just paid me per his own pre-nup a year earlier. I also believe Betsy's fees to be very reasonable for the amount of time, energy and effort she put into my case. I would highly recommend Betsy for a good result in your case!

I retained Betsy for a child support modification case. I was stationed overseas at the time but she made it very easy for me to handle everything that needed to be done. Every time I submitted paperwork and had a question regarding the case there would be an email for me answering all questions. She made herself available to me by telephone since I was not able to be there in person. The professionalism in the way she handled herself and the legal advice provided allowed me to make some sensible decisions while protecting my rights at the same time. I really appreciated her time and effort put towards my case and would recommend her as an attorney to anyone seeking legal representation.

I retained Betsy to fight a custody case that had been going on for almost three years and had covered 3 different states. My opinion of this case was that it was a complete mess by the time jurisdiction was turned over to Porter County Family Court. Betsy took control over this mess and was able to get everything organized, but because of continuous allegations from the father of the kids against my family and I and countless motions submitted by the opposing attorney it remained a very difficult case. It would take a book the size of the novel "War and Peace" to describe all the details in this case, but happily I can say that Betsy came out victorious in this war and now my family can have peace. Thanks Betsy for a job well done!

Let me start off with saying the only reason I didn't give the five star rating is because my case is still active. But I am almost sure that by the end of this, she will have all five stars by me. Betsy does her job very well. She is a well educated lawyer who knows what she is doing and does it right. She's highly informative and wants to do what's best for her clients. Although my case is not yet over, I have high confidence in her to accomplish what I expect. She is very open and honest and gives it to you straight up. Which is a good quality when fighting for what's best. She has worked hard for my case so far and I am very pleased with the direction it's headed in. I'm grateful to have had a chance to find such an honest, hardworking and trustworthy lawyer. I am looking forward to having her get things done the right way and to try to help me restore some normalcy for my children and I.

At first Betsy was a very kind and considerate person. I had a child custody, visitation, and child support case. She seemed to really know her stuff and took care of the matters that needed to be addressed but when it was time tp go to court she basically just sat back and did nothing. She never presented any of the evidence I had which was very important to my case and would have helped tremendously. She didn't stand up for me wt all and just took whatever the judge dished out. When I had issues with my daughter's father on him violating the court order repeatedly she never did anything to help he basically got away with all the violations that he did. Also after we went to court the child support issue was supposed to be dealt with, figured out, and I shouldve been getting my child support but I'm not and its been 3 months and every time I questioned her about it I was told it takes time. Ive filed for child support myself before and it NEVER took 3 months. Shes very lazy and never calls you back and also if betsy and her secretary know your # and know that your a persistent person and demand answers they won't even answer the
phone. I had full trust and faith in her that she would help me and my case but nothing got resolved. If I would've known the type of person she is and how she operates I NEVER would've wasted a dime on her. Shes literally the worst attorney ive ever met. Unless you want to do all the leg work yourself DO NOT hire this woman!!

I have never met any other lawyer/ caring person like Betsy in my life when I came to her she was straight forward and did not sugar coat any thing I was a nervous wreak and waiting a 2 year in progress divorce that other lawyers just kept bleeding me dry of money and my soul I just wanted it to be over. Betsy called me right back and got me in the same day flat rate and in 7 days got my life back she will always be my first choice when I am ever in need of help and I would respectful never forget her. If any one needs help please give her a call she will help you at any point in your life to stop the pain you feel in side. I was ready to just give up and God blessed me with this angel Betsy walits. Thank you for all you do and the stress you take from others and put there fight and stress in your hands. Much love..

After bouncing around from other lawyers who didn't provide answers or help but plenty of bill, Betsy was able to make quick sense of my case and get me on the fast track to finalizing my divorce. She was straight forward, honest, and almost always available for questions. She provided all this help to me for only half the price!

Betsy was a huge help getting my divorce over with. When my X wanted to drag things out Betsy new what to do to fix the problems. She always asked how the kids were doing and always put them first. I would absolutly recomend her to a friend.

Attorney Walits was very unprofessional, to say the least! She often held meetings with me and even came to court with wet hair as if she was not completely ready for the day. On occassion she used swear words in an attempt to show her disdain for my husband and his attorney's tactics. At the time I thought nothing of it, but in hindsight, I realize it was an attempt to bolster her credibility and make me feel more secure in her ability to take care of my case. She was more words than action! She would never provide a written statement as to where I stood financially with her. She made promises that were not kept, and seemed to only want to drag out my case for more money. I felt I was not represented well, and eventually let her go only to hire a new attorney to finish a job she was not well equipped to do. I chose her because her claim was that of a child advocate, and she claimed to make divorce easier on the children. In the end, she did more harm to my children during the divorce because I was constantly worried about not being well represented. I know this is only my opinion, but if it helps even one person, then it was worth it! Divorce is not easy on anyone involved. Do your homework, and choose your attorney wisely!
