One of the greatness attorneys in Virginia
Hired John recently for a custody, visitation, and child support case. He represented me well and I came out on top as I normally do when he is in my corner. He has previously represented me in criminal matters which also worked out well. All around great and fair guy.

"I endorse this lawyer."

Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"Mr. Walsh is an excellent, experienced family law attorney. He is extremely knowledgeable, a zealous advocate for his clients, and great to have on the other side of the case. Many attorneys have a "pit bull" approach to divorce, custody, and support matters, which I don't appreciate at all. Mr. Walsh is courteous and cooperative, while keeping his clients' interests as his priority. I only wish more attorneys would adopt this approach. I endorse him without reservation."
