  • R Milan Hanson

    Young is one of the few people who still teaches me the art and practice of the law. He is an exceptional attorney who takes on tough cases, and wins.

  • Jeff Jorgensen

    I recently worked on a case with Mr. Walgenkim where he was the opposing counsel. Mr. Walgenkim was a zealous advocate for his client but also was very professional and courteous throughout the litigation process. I found Mr. Walgenkim to be a hardworking, responsive, and honest attorney who consistently advocated his client's best interests. After witnessing his advocacy and negotiation skills first hand, I would not hesitate to call on Mr. Walgenkim personally if I ever needed a consumer right's attorney.
