I came to Halstrom Law offices recently on the recommendation of my family attorney after my husband’s unexpected death. I had opportunity to work with Fred Halstrom who listened to my concerns, determined that I had a case and guided me to a resolution that allowed me to find closure. Attorney Fred Halstrom and his office staff are professional, caring, compassionate individuals whose ultimate goal is to do the very best to get satisfaction for their clients. I highly recommend Halstrom Law offices.

My daughter was born with a rare genetic disease in the second year of our visit to the United States. During the prenatal care, my wife was never given adequate and correct genetic counseling and never offered the proper test to identify my daughterâ€™s problem. My daughterâ€™s birth with this disease was a huge shock to me and my wife. Far away from our home country and all of our other family members, we knew nothing about my daughterâ€™s disease and faced the huge challenge of caring for such a disable child, with almost no friends hereâ€¦ we were helpless and hopeless. We found Mr. Halstrom by chance when I searched online for legal help. He took our case when we first met. From that time on, Mr. Halstrom and the staff of Halstrom Law Offices have been not only providing all essential professional legal help for us, but also have been acting as our very reliable friends. They have been compassionate, confidential, and very respectful. They handled every single detail; collected everything essential for the case. They provided interpreters all the time for helping us understand all the details of the case; they respect every single questions we had and answered very patiently.
Mr. Halstrom has been absolutely precise and professional, and he handled our case expertly and ferociously. We were protected from language games and tactics of the defense lawyers. In the end, the defense settled the case for $7 million. Mr. Halstrom helped us set up a trust for my daughter with the settlement money; this will completely change her life care. It is unfortunate to have doctors never inform you or offer essential testing to see if your child has any disease. We canâ€™t change the nature of our daughterâ€™s disease, but thanks to Mr. Halstrom's help of Mr. Halstrom, her care will change dramatically.
As a foreigner, we feel cared for and loved as family members by Mr. Halstrom and his office staff. Every holiday, we have received flowers and gifts from Mr.Halstrom and his office. Mr. Halstrom continues to show his compassion through these small acknowledgments. He has been one of our very reliable friends. Mr. Halstrom and his staff have been and continue to be a blessing to my family.

My husband's PCP failed to diagnose my husband's lung cancer. When it was finally discovered, the cancer was advanced and considered stage IV and terminal.
We found Attorney Halstrom through a mutual acquaintance. From the moment his office accepted our case, Attorney Halstrom and his staff worked diligently on mine and my husbandâ€™s case. He was compassionate throughout the entire process. Attorney Halstrom's diligence and willingness to help us had our case completed within the 18 months after we first met with him, at mediation 2 weeks prior to the scheduled trial, allowing my husband the peace of mind that we (me and our children) would be taken care of.
Attorney Halstrom and all his staff were true professionals and we knew we were in the hands of experts!

Attorney Halstrom deserves the ranking of being one of the best lawyers in America. He is extremely knowledgable, skilled and fearless when it comes to trying cases in his areas of expertise. His record of success is unmatched. And he's a wonderful mentor and role model in the legal community.
