Mr. Walter Ty: A Beacon of Excellence in Divorce Law - A Review of an Exceptional Attorney
I am absolutely thrilled to share my experience working with Mr. Walter Ty, who has been my unwavering pillar of support throughout a complex and convoluted civil matter that spanned a grueling 18-month period, culminating in a trial that lasted five intense business days. From the very beginning, Mr. Ty displayed exceptional dedication and professionalism. He exuded a rare combination of legal expertise and unwavering commitment to his clients' best interests. His approach was not just about winning the case but ensuring that justice was served. Mr. Ty's extensive knowledge of the law and his ability to navigate the complexities of my situation were truly remarkable. Throughout this arduous journey, Mr. Ty showcased not only his legal prowess but also his compassion and empathy. He understood the emotional toll that such a case can take on an individual and their family. Mr. Ty was always available to listen to my concerns, answer my questions, and provide the guidance and reassurance I needed. The trial itself was a testament to Mr. Ty's skills as a litigator. He was confident, prepared, and poised, leaving no stone unturned in his pursuit of a favorable outcome. His attention to detail and persuasive arguments in the courtroom were nothing short of impressive. I felt confident and supported, knowing that Mr. Ty was in my corner, fighting for my rights. In the end, the results spoke for themselves. Mr. Walter Ty's diligent efforts and unwavering commitment led to a successful resolution in my case. I couldn't have asked for a better attorney by my side during this challenging period. I wholeheartedly recommend Mr. Walter Ty to anyone in need of a dedicated and highly skilled attorney. He has not only defended my legal rights but also provided me with a sense of closure and peace of mind. If you find yourself in a legal predicament, having Mr. Ty in your corner will undoubtedly be a game-changer. Thank you, Mr. Ty, for your exceptional service and tireless dedication. You are a true legal champion!

Walter is great to work with. He takes the time to understand fully the situation with all factors involved. (You would think all lawyers would do that but not true) Walter truly cares and is clear with instructions and expectations. Responsiveness is good. Pricing is great. Overall, definitely recommend.

The very best
Walter Ty amazed me completely. He knew what was best for the case and helped it transition into a settlement. During the meeting, he was commanding the process so smoothly, and he was well prepared much better than the opposite lawyer. I was worried about my case. It was a very difficult situation and as with anything difficult it took time, a few months. I was worried that the lawyer wouldn't care enough or take me seriously as not many people around me had done this, but I was absolutely wrong. And here I am today writing this review in complete comfort knowing my children are as safe as possible thanks to him. He let me know from the start not only what I wanted to hear but every possible scenario, he was sincere with me and told me what to expect. I will always remember this experience with gratitude for his dedication to solving the problem I was faced with and his professionalism.

Exceptional Family Law attorney
Walter did an absolutely phenomenal job with my custody case. I reside out of state and he was able to handle everything with absolutely no issues including getting the court to allow me to access my hearing remotely. He was very caring about the situation and he was able to create a very swift settlement that the other parties and myself all agreed upon without any pushback. I highly recommend Walter because he does truly care about his clients needs and he really looks out for the absolute best interests. If I ever have to hire a family law attorney again (which I never will because Walter got it done perfectly) Walter is my go to for help.

Amazing person you’ll have meet.
And the most simplest terms possible Mr. Walter is one of the most diligent person , Easy to reach, quick to respond. I had a different perspective on lawyers in my past but because of him my thoughts against lawyers have change for the better. He’s the most kind hearted most hard-working and the most dedicated lawyer I’ve ever had. Once he believes he has a strong case he will fight until the end and get what he wants and get what his client wants if not more he will never settle for less he wants to succeed in everything and that is the most difficult thing to fine and lawyers nowadays Mr. Walter is the lawyer you want under your belt when you need them the most.

Professional, and extremely approachable!
Walter is the ideal lawyer. His expertise and competence in the field of family law is apparent and reassuring to the point that I feel comfortable saying "Walter, do what you need to do, I trust you." Alternatively, if I wish to be involved in the minutia and drafting of documents he welcomes my commentary and questions, taking my input seriously every step of the way. He listens to what I am concerned about and considers my goals and desired outcomes for my family and I when advising me. Walter is no nonsense and does not waste my time or money with unnecessary steps or paperwork. In unpredictable times involving scary life changes, I am so relieved I have someone like Walter, who is accessible and relatable, to take care of all my family law issues time and again.

Greatly pleased.
I must say, my experience with Mr. Ty is by far the best I have had in the 12+ years I have been fighting for custody of my children. Mr. Ty was very efficient, organized, well prepared, & professional. He communicated with me regularly, made sure all necessary materials were attained, & presented evidence & facts so well, I not only ended up with full sole & physical of my children, but child support was settled & I walked away having all arrears paid & case closed. Thank you for a phenomenal job Mr. Ty. My children & myself are eternally grateful to you for your help & hard work.

HBL
He has been working on a custody case and proven to be a great asset an advocate to the case by fighting a large law firm that has been nothing but Unethical In the custody battle. But he has shown Great patience and truly has a heart for the children. And he is without a doubt a great father himself. At least for me I find in him security and belief. I believe he is the future of turning this Baltimore cronyism court system around.He is the David that will defeat Goliath. For he is a true champion of the children.

Excellent lawyer!
I hired Walter when I needed help navigating my way through a difficult divorce. As a stay at home mom my ex had led me to believe I'd be homeless and poor if I proceeded, but Walter reassured me that I had rights and that there could be a fair resolution so that I could move forward with my life. He was very right! I am now once again in a custody battle with my ex and have once again turned to Walter for help. He is an attentive and compassionate lawyer who demonstrates a clear knowledge of the law. I've found him easy to talk to and he has no problem breaking down the how's and why's in an understandable way so that I can understand the process. I feel like he fights for us and the results show! I highly recommend him!

Divorce Attorney Review
Mr. Ty did an awesome job representing me. I had to fire my first attorney who didn't have my best interest at heart. However, Mr. Ty was the complete opposite and always demonstrated that he put my needs first. He had to get caught up on my case pretty fast and was able to get up to speed fairly quickly. His negotiating skills are excellent and he was always one step ahead of my ex husband's attorney, which definitely gave me an advantage. I would certainly recommend Mr. Ty to anyone going through a divorce who wants a fighter on their behalf.
