Highly skilled and competent Attorney
Mr. Wallsh handled both a criminal and civil domestic case for me. It was a long drawn out process because of the dishonesty of the opposing party, but Mr. Wallsh was alway patient and honest and gave me exceptional advice. In the end both cases were resolved to my satisfaction and the opposition was not able to get away with their grand scheme. Mr. Wallsh was amazing in court. I highly recommend him.
