After bungling interactions with the authorities and on the recommendations of lawyers I know, I called Mr. Tetlow. Wally is a remarkable, skilled, and justly respected attorney. His entire office was the first legal entity we dealt with during this nightmare case that did not automatically treat us like criminals. That alone went a long way toward lessening the unbelievably tremendous amount of anxiety I experienced. But it was Wally's intelligent, erudite, thorough, compassionate, honest representation that let me sleep at night and carry on with my life as best I could. Hiring him was the wisest decision. I am forever grateful that he accepted the case. His competent, commanding presence in the courtroom is palpable. Not guilty is priceless poetic justice.
I'm an attorney myself and all experienced and well-respected attorneys whom I have consulted all say that if they need an attorney it would be Wally Tetlow. Wally Tetlow was named Best Attorney in the Nation and I agree. He's the very best. He was able to have the prosecutor to deny prosecution and therefore no charge, no arraignment and I was able to maintain my clean record. Every time he was either available to talk or returned my call within that day. He is brilliant, honest, responsive, seasoned, kind, respectful and reliable. Once he was my attorney I knew I was in good hands and didn't have to worry anymore. I am grateful to have Wally Tetlow as my attorney. You will not be disappointed with his diligent work and expertise. He is worth every cent and as you can see, we are all rating him five stars. To me, he is six stars. He surpasses excellence.
Wally Tetlow is a professional and detail oriented attorney. I felt confident that he was working towards the best possible outcome for my case. He completed a thorough review of all information presented which lead to a dismissal. He did so in a timely manner which meant that the final cost of his services were affordable.
Great lawyer to have, he was very professional but easy to talk to. I was very lucky to have him as my attorney and I would highly recommend him to anyone. I would go a few months without hearing from him but I knew that work was being done because in a short amount of time my case got closed. I really appreciate his help. He knew what he was doing and that was very reinsuring.
Excellent person to represent your case. He is very understanding, yet looks at your case in an objective and professional manner. I greatly appreciated his help and guidance, thank you Wally!
Police kicked in my door and stole all my belongings. I called Wally and he immediately knew it was an illegal search and seizure. The police were extremely hostile and uncooperative. Wally was so much better than the DA that the police department hired their own attorney to fight him. Case got dropped and I got my belongings back. I recommend him completely. Made a very scary and stressful situation into a interesting learning experience. He was worth every penny.
Wally has been my defense attorney in 2 separate cases now. The first was a DV charge that could have ended my career. Wally is very knowledgable, honest, and obviously a man of unflappable character. Through his hard work and excellent rapport with the prosecution, Wally was able to negotiate a lesser charge that didn't threaten my career and was able to obtain dismissals in both cases. Thank you so much, Wally!!!
Wally was a pleasure to work with. He was very knowledgeable and personable. When it came to the whole case he was very adamant about fighting for me. He knew I was distraught about the whole situation, being it my first offense, and was able to reassure me and let me know that he would defend me diligently and thoroughly. He kept in contact with me throughout the time-frame of the case. I am definitely glad I was able to work with Wally. I would recommend him to others. Hopefully this isn't the case, but if I got in trouble again, I would definitely call him to represent me.
I was referred to Mr. Tetlow by another attorney. He did an excellent job providing a defence for me in a Criminally negligent homicide case. He made motions to dismiss the case, which the judge accepted one of the motions and the case ended up being finished at that point. Mr. Tetlow understands the pressure and anxiety the defendant goes thru during a criminal case, and is very understanding and helpful navigating the legal system.
I don't have enough nice words to describe Wally and I certainly have nothing negative to say. Wally literally saved my way of life and kept it from falling apart due to false accusations. He is extremely knowledgeable and compassionate in his work. He kept me calm throughout the entire process even when it started to get to its worst, that's when he stepped up even more to the plate and hit me a homerun. He has great communication and even explained things to me multiple times when I couldnt comprehend everything that was going on. If you need a defense and it seems like no one will listen to your side of the story, I can testify Wally will make sure your side of the story is told and facts are smeared against you. Wally is no push over lawyer, he is aggressive and stands out as soon as he walks into a courtroom compared to the other lawyers I saw in there. I could thank him every single day and it still wouldn't be enough. Thanks again Wally!
