  1. Potential to be a great representing lawyer but allowed personal issues to become a lawyer that didn't even show to hearings.

    • I do not recommend Nancy Wallace.

    Nancy was very knowledgeable and fought for you when she had the time. Although, she may love answering questions on here she didn't like answering questions on the phone or in person and never seemed to have my file or proper paperwork in front of her even at prior scheduled meetings. She could be a great attorney but for me she didn't have the time, man power, poor excuses, no contact for months to not even showing up to court with the judge, client and defense waiting even trying to reach her from the court hearing. This added probably another couple years to my case and allowing for the defense to get denials through and causing neglect to getting proper timely medical attention which could very well be part of why my injury/condition had worsened! I personally did most of the investigating work and tracking down reports to having to fax my own medical documentation to her because she never had anything or ever requested or inquired about my case to my doctor's or anyone. She should have been the first one to have the documentation and making sure it was accurate, proper and I was updated and agreed or disagreed with the findings etc.
    I felt like I was working for her. Quite a shame because she is very knowledgeable and a fighter which an injured worker needs in this hell of being stuck in the workman's comp. system but became unreachable, rude at times, unaccountable, unprofessional and untrustworthy. Didn't even have other partners etc. to help aide if needed. She didn't even have a receptionist or a working voicemail at times. Used every excuse possible from the most dramatic of weather issues to pet issues to blaming me the client for not making her aware of a court date. She actually blamed me for not emailing her about a msc hearing she knew of before I did or requested herself. I guess she thought I was keeping her calander. I should have been paid the 15% as I did majority of all the work and was the one in court defending myself. The defense ate this up and I beleive it caused the defense to get away with improper denials, compensation and prolonging my case to making them low ball my injuries because I basically didn't have good legal representation and I was alone standing with "egg on my face"! This attorney really needs to get her act together for the sake of her craft and most importantly her clients! This a person's health and livelihood at stake!!

      Lawyer Comment:

      I'm sorry you were unhappy with the service. I wish I could recall this case or any of these things occurring but cannot. I DO have a tough time telling people who beg for help 'no' and it backfires on me sometimes.

    • I recommend Nancy Wallace.
    • I hired Nancy more than 3 years ago.
    • Nancy handled my Workers Compensation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Nancy explains so I can understand. She answered my emails so I knew what was happening, and met with me when I needed to show her papers. I understood each step; I found other workers in the waiting are who knew nothing of how they got there.

    Nancy was there for me throughout the entire process. She kept me informed, and was very patient explaining the process and what I needed to do. Most of all, she was honest in her expectations. She is truly professional, patient, and will do what needs to be done. Thank You, Nancy!

    I REALLY recommend this lawyer. She handled my case herself. Nancy picked a super doctor who really cared.

    I don't know what i would have done without her; without her I was with a chiropractor who couldn't get me shoulder surgery, and I was running out of state payments, and no one could explain why I couldn't get payments or pain relief or surgery.

    I have already sent neighbors to her for help.

    I wish all lawyers were as affordable (I paid nothing except at the very end, and that was paid by the insurance company).

    I wish all lawyers were as straight-forward as Nancy is.

    I went to another lawyer who sent me to a chiropractor for an ankle and a shoulder which he couldn't help. Then, before I could finish with an orthopedic, that bad chiropractor wrote a false report that i was finished so the bad lawyer could close the case quickly! Nancy fixed the damage done by the bad lawyer and bad chiropractor...I'll NEVER call an 800 number for legal help ever again.

    My husband had two back injuries, the second one cost him his job. Mrs. Wallace handled the case herself, appeared herself at court appearances, spent as much time as we needed so we could understand. friends had secretaries handling their claim and couldn't understand why they got what they got. My husband was given the option of settling or going to trial and the good parts and bad parts of each...I had to explain this to other friends with work injuries because they could never talk to their lawyer.
