Excellent choice
I contacted several lawyers and Summer was the last one that I spoke with. She took so much stress off of me after the consultation. Every step of the way was very thorough and I was always updated. Summer made sure that my son was always priority and this alone kept me at ease. I put the entire case in her hands and I’m not disappointed. Everything is finalized. My son and I have closelure and peace of mind. You can’t put a price on that. Thanks again Summer!!

Great Lawyer
I used Summer Walker for my uncontested divorce. She was very knowledgeable and answered all of my questions. I liked that she could do everything over email/phone, as we are not in the same county and my ex-husband and I are on very different schedules it was convenient to get everything taken care of. Even after our paperwork was filed and everything was complete, she answered questions I had. I was very impressed with how smoothly everything went while we were going through a very un-smooth situation.

Highly recommend!
Summer was great! She helped me through a very frustrating divorce that my initial lawyer couldn't really help with as he was not a family lawyer. Summer explained the procedures and the process. She listened to my requests, explained her reasonings and was very reasonable with her prices. I wish I would have found her sooner!

Fantastic representation
I highly recommend Summer Walker. She represented me in my uncontested divorce and was professional and thorough. Although I only paid her a flat fee, she answered my many questions within minutes. Thank you, Summer!

Professional and Responsive
Summer was excellent throughout the process. She explained the ins and outs of Alabama law in clear, accessible terms. This made the entire process feel transparent and gave me confidence that I was making the right decision as it pertained to my own wellbeing and that of my former spouse. Summer was very responsive as well. She answered all emails within 24 hours with a thoughtful, well-researched response. When it came time to file, Summer was able to give highly specific explanations of what to expect in terms of the timeline. With all said and done, my case was resolved much quicker and more smoothly than I would have otherwise expected.

Hands down best lawyer ever
Summer Walker is hands down the best! Military friendly and very accommodating. She's very polite, understanding, percise, hard working, and extremely knowledgeable. Being that I'm military she handled my case out of state and still was able to take away all the worry and stress out of the process. If you're reading this review, stop now and contact her.

Uncontested Divorce
I used the services of Mrs. Walker for my divorce and she did a great job filing for it and all was done in a timely manner. Even though the divorce was uncontested, Mrs. Summer showed her professionalism and handled my case very well. It took her less than 2 months to finalize the case. I would definitely recommend Mrs. Summer for any representation regarding that matter.

A true advocate
During my divorce, Ms. Walker looked out for me in ways I didn't even think mattered. She took my life beyond the divorce into consideration in every suggestion and decision she made. I appreciate her for that because there were days I could not see beyond that day. She is a true advocate for her clients and I would recommend her services without hesitation.

She was honest and told me where to start before seeking help with a probate estate. I really appreciated that. I will definitely use her. She was refreshing.

A lawyer that Cares!
Hello all, I'm from California and I hired Mrs. Walker to represent me in a child custody case. Mrs. Walker has exceeded my expectations while winning my case. In my experience with lawyers Mrs. Walker's communication regarding my case was consistent and accurate. I recommend this lawyer with high regard.

An Attorney that goes above and beyond
Ms. Walker is knowledgeable, hardworking, trustworthy and concerned for the fairness of her clients. After many failed attempts and "run around" in the family law court system, Ms Walker stepped up and expedited our case within a matter of months. I respectively would recommend Ms. Walker as an attorney to anyone needing family law services.

Estate planning: Will, Living Will, and Healthcare directive
I highly recommend Summer Walker. She helped me define what I needed regarding estate planning. Summer was accessible and easy to communicate with during the process. The turnaround was very quick. I have recommended her to many of my friends and co-workers, and am happy to do so on this web site.

Trustworthy & Professional
My experience with Summer Walker has been overwhelmingly positive. She communicated the law clearly and kept me up-to-date on every aspect of the progress of my case. I put my full trust in her abilities and was never disappointed. I recommend her services without reservation.
Posted by Darren | February 10, 2015
By far the best attorney out there!
Ms. Walker was fantastic! After many months and a lot of money getting nowhere with a different firm she was able to expedite a much more reasonable financial settling of my matter. She explained everything every step of the way in terms I could understand. Ms. Walker was very fair and understanding regarding payment and payment arrangements. I would highly recommend her to anyone - very knowledgeable, very professional, and an overall wonderful attorney!

Summer Walker is an excellent attorney who really cares for her clients
I would highly recommend Summer because of her sincere concern and care for her clients, as well as her knowledge and skill in family law proceedings. She is very honest and upfront about the legal process and the costs. She explained all of the pros and cons of different courses of action in a way that I could understand without sounding condescending like other attorneys I had spoken with. She took the time to answer any questions I may have and made sure I understood everything completely, which made me feel very comfortable. I almost felt like I was a friend that she was helping because of her sincerety and attention to detail in my case. I will definitely use Summer again should I ever need another family law attorney and would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone else.

Terrible attorney
I wouldn’t recommend!!!!!! I hired Summer June 2021, and it has been like pulling teeth. She doesn’t respond to emails timely, I had to contact her several times to get things done, and honestly this has been the worse process. I sent her a payment February 2022, along with an email requesting a service, and it’s July 2022 and I haven’t heard from her. I’ve tried emailing her (no response). I tried contacting her (number out of service). My next step is BBB and the Bar. DO NOT RECOMMEND!!!!!

Unresponsive
Since a reply from her on April 9th, I texted Summer again on April 9th, April 11th, April 13th, April 14th, and April 21st with no reply. I did receive a call back on March 17th but I have called on the following dates with NO response March 29th, April 14th (2X), April 18th, April 20th, April 21st (2X) and April 24th. And a few other instances where she was non-responsive. While I she may be busy and I think she has the tenacity to help me, what good does it do when I can't reach her nor she will not respond?
