Great Trust Laywer
Hiring a lawyer to work on your estate planning is a extremely delicate matter, there are many decisions that need to be made when you are setting up a estate planning and trust. We met with Robert to talk about updating our estate trust a few months back after interviewing other lawyers. Robert was extremely knowledgeable and had many additional ideas that would work well with our trust, we hired him. He was extremely professional and he had our trust ready and back within a short time as well. I would highly recommend Robert if you are looking for a estate trust lawyer.

Estate of Joe Pauline Romack
Mr. Walton Was a referred to me by another attorney. My parents died close together and they had some loose ends. Mr. Walton did a professional job and dealt with several siblings that were extremely difficult. As a law enforcement officer of 32 plus years I would highly recommend this attorney. Mr. Walton was a class act to the end of this estate. Advice I have is to have an attorney like Mr. Walton help plan before the passing of a person in professional legal binding way. My siblings threaten to write bad reviews about Mr. Walton but it is without merit. Mr. Walton's advice was second to none dealing with difficult siblings. This told me he could handle any estate. God Bless you and your law practice and I can not thank you enough, John Romack : personal representative to Joe And Pauline Romack

The Best Lawyer in Fl
Mr Walton was hired to manage a very complicated probate case involving my grandfather. He worked diligently to stay on top of things and always kept me informed. Mr Walton was required to not only work with the courts but the attorneys for others involved in the case. The end result was two homes being sold and proceeds dispersed to all stakeholders. At the end of my case I felt I was losing a family member because he became like family. I had another situation to deal with in South Carolina, Mr. Walton put me in touch with another wonderful attorney who also helped me. I will really miss working with Mr. Walton.

Probate estate, Will, Trust & Prenupt.
Robert Walton prepared and explained all three legal documents for me based on my needs. He is professional, easy to talk to, explains everything including how to get in touch with him. Both Rob and his paralegal, Brittany, are kind, genuine and considerate. I plan to stay in contact with him as my needs arise. I recommend him with utmost confidence in his ability.

Estate Planning Documents Preparation
Rob went through each step of each document in great detail. Walked me through the pro's and con's of all choices available to me. Don't hesitate to ask Rob questions, he has easy to understand answers with explanations of your choices. I recommend Rob based on his attention to detail, cordial personality, and non intimidating demeanor. Do not hesitate to choose Rob as your Attorney.

clear and easy
Robert was so easy to work with to complete our estate planning. He was thorough and explained every aspect of the legal process to us. His fees were reasonable and we both feel he went above and beyond what was expected. We will refer our family and friends to his practice!

Rob is doing an awesome job for me!
I am so glad that Rob is fighting for me! I live in California, and to have Rob represent me in court, when I cant be there is such a relief for me during this trying time. He has looked out for my best intrests since I can not go to the court hearings. He has filed court papers that I never would have thought of. Since the passing of my Mother, Rob has been there for me. I have no knowledge of probates or estates. He has explained everything to me in such a way as to make this process easier for me. This case is not easy, and Rob has done an awesome job! He listens to my concerns, and puts them into actions with the courts. My case involved 2 stages, and Rob has won on the first stage for me. I know with his knowledge and professionalism in the courts, he will give me the closure I need. I am so thankful that Rob is representing me through this difficult time. I worry less, knowing Rob is on my side! Thank you Rob! You are the best!!!
