I have been a criminal defense lawyer in Alaska for the last 20 years. I continue to represent clients facing charges ranging from murder to dui. I understand that your case is of the utmost importance to you and your loved ones, and will work tirelessly to obtain the best possible outcome for you.
I have tried cases all over the state, from Fairbanks to Sand Point. I have appeared before the Alaska Court of Appeals and the Alaska Supreme Court and am licensed to practice before the Supreme Court of the United States of America.
I know that being charged with a crime is a trying time. I know the feelings of indignity and helplessness that arise during such times. You are not helpless. I believe it is my duty to stand up for my clients' rights and to treat every client with dignity and respect.

Wally Tetlow is most definitely an attorney that I would highly recommend for any criminal law matter. I often refer cases to Mr. Tetlow when a referral is necessary and I have never hesitated to do so. I've been co-counsel with Mr. Tetlow in the past and have been very impressed with his work.
