Being falsely accused of serious crimes that can affect your career and custody of your children is scary. Faced with this threat, I resolved to hire the very best legal representation possible. I was not disappointed. Mr. Tetlow conducted a vigorous pre-trial defense and was very well prepared going into the trial. During the trial he deftly handled examinations, made good strategic decisions, and demonstrated a superior knowledge of the nuances of the law. His ability to use the law to our advantage and present the evidence in a clear effective way to the jury won my acquittal on all charges.
In addition to his superior skills and knowledge as a lawyer, Mr. Tetlow was good to work with. He established a strong two-way communication, was very responsive to my questions and input on the case, and showed real compassion. There was never a doubt in my mind that Wally was as fully committed to winning my case as I was. And something not unimportant in the high cost of a legal case, he also worked in an efficient cost effective manner. I would strongly recommend Mr. Tetlow to any one in need of a top quality defense attorney.

We hired Wally Tetlow to represent our son, who was facing both OUI and felony drug possession charges. We did not hire an attorney immediately following our son's arrest, but waited until our son had completed one year of addiction treatment out of state and we were sure that he was serious about recovery and moving forward in life. When we sought to hire a defense attorney, we spoke with several trusted people in the Alaska legal community and Mr. Tetlow was highly recommended by everyone. We also visited this website and found that Wally and his partner had the highest ratings of anyone we had considered.
This was our first experience in criminal court proceedings and we were nervous and frightened. When we called Tetlow Law Group for the first time, Wally really listened and was kind and informative on the phone and quickly scheduled our consultation appointment. Wally immediately took care of the warrants on our son and spent a great deal of time on the phone with him getting information and details about the arrest and developed a strong professional relationship with our son, always communicating with him effectively and preparing him for what lied ahead.
Our goal in hiring a defense attorney for our son, was not only to address the charges against him but primarily to insure that our son remain in the treatment that had proven successful. We presented these goals to Wally and he was very understanding and professional. From the moment we walked into his office, his receptionist set us at ease and Wally introduced us to his partner, James Christie, and James' dog. The compassionate professionalism shown to ourselves and our son was amazing. Wally walked our son and us though every stage of the proceedings and gave us all the information we needed to navigate though this uncertain time. He patiently answered all our questions and his fees were very reasonable and his billing practices honest, open and fair. Mr. Tetlow's appearance and demeanor in the court proceedings were extremely professional, and the way he conducted himself made us feel we had made the right choice in representation for our son and that he was in excellent hands.
Our son's treatment mandated that he not miss more than three days in a row and Wally arranged for him to "appear" in court by telephone. Also Wally had the felony charges downgraded and arranged to have our son fulfill the obligations of his probation in the state where resides and is in treatment. All of Wally's instructions and communication with our son were impeccable and our son came to trust the lawyer we hired completely. Our son has now completed nearly two years of successful treatment and is in full compliance with the terms of his three year unsupervised probation. We owe so much to Wally Tetlow and highly recommend him as a legal advocate who is honest and professional. We hope not to use him again but would do so without any hesitation. Someday, our son looks forward to meeting the man who has given him a second chance at life. We are all grateful.

Extremedy knowledgeable and professional. Was honest about seriousness of charges but very confident in his abilities. Extremely good at direct and cross examination. He literally saved my life. Worth every penny. Would recommend him to anyone I care about.

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.

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.
