Mr. Haugen is an excellent representative for the people. My daughter's name change was painless and there was no time delay. We appreciate all that he did for a successful outcome.

Walt did an outstanding job providing his legal knowledge and experience with my divorce. He made the legal side of it as painless as possible. He was diligent in getting answers in a timely fashion and the process moved fairly quickly. He has a very strong assistant as well. I will definitely use him again in the future for other legal needs.

I think he probably is a good family/divorce attorney but don't use him for criminal law. He isn't very knowledgeable in the area and never returns calls. I had to go to his office to get any response. I think he allows his personal views to cloud his defense. This was a modification hearing.
There were difficult circumstances but it was a hearing for sex offender modification. People attach such a stigma without knowing the circumstances. He knew the DA stance and allowed him to badger my children. I allowed the DA to speak privately with my children with Mr. Haugen present and he did nothing to defend them. If you don't believe what your client is telling you or you are biased towards a case due to your personal beliefs then don't take the case! These are people's lives and shouldn't be taken lightly. An attorney needs to fight for you and their actions typically affect a person for years. I wish I had researched attorneys more thoroughly before choosing. It was utter disappointment to say the least.
