Highly recommended
Mr. Walton represented both my husband and myself. It was pretty painless, he walked us through what was going to happen step by step. It was very thorough. It was a very, very good experience. His staff was knowledgeable and very pleasant. The best thing about working with the firm was Mr. Walton's one-on-one approach with both me and my husband. He was definitely there for me as an individual not just trying to win a case.

Great Disability Attorney
I cant say enough good things about Mr.Walton and his practice. I had been fighting to get my disability case approved for almost five years i was denied benefits six or seven times in that time and any one that has dealt with the SSA knows how much of a pain that can be. I was recomended by a family attorney to speak with Mr.Walton, well after obtaining his services it was about a month before i had been approved for my disability benefits. Needless to say Mr.walton is a great attorney you will not be dissapointed.

Randy did an awesome job as always
Randy was awesome!! He was on my case from day 1 when I initially filed in 2019. Of course I got denied as most people do at first. He was on it and filed my appeal on the spot. He kept me informed of everything as it happened and kept me staying positive throughout the whole process. He even let me know when he was gonna be out of pocket for a few days so if I needed him I wouldn't freak out. He called me the day he got notice I was approved. He was so excited to tell me!! As was I to hear. It was a long 3 years but it was worth the fight! Thank you so much Randy. Will definitely refer u in the future. He did my ex- husband's claim and my best friend in the past and won both of theirs so I didn't expect any less for me. Awesome job as always!

Wonderful and experienced attorney
Randy worked diligently on my case. He maintained my records far better than I could have. He called regularly over time to check on recent visits and upcoming appointments, so he had a perfect record of my health. Randy is accessible and available to answer all questions I had. He was kind and thoughtful and made me feel like a friend. He made this process easy for me. That’s an art. Working so hard that it looks easy. I had a favorable outcome and highly recommend him!! Thank you Randy

Want a win your case the best bet is Randolph Barnes Walton
Randolph Walton was available to me whenever I needed him. He was either quick to answer the call or return calls within the day or next available work day. When he will be out of the office he would call and send a notice by mail. He was very fast at getting difficult medical records and relaying information to me. He is very professional and personable. He is very knowledgeable and will go above and beyond for his clients. It was a pleasure working with him. He is fast paced and steady in the waiting period. I will hire him if I ever need him in the future and I will recommend him to anyone, including friends and family. Give him a call today and win your case too. Best wishes

A blessing from God
For years, I have been in denial to accept that I am disabled and Continue to work because I have kids and I knew that Eventually I would have to stop working, but I didn’t expect to stop working at such an very young age and have been told by my doctors and family that I need to slow down or things was going to get worst unfortunately they were all right. I contacted a lawyer and was told that he was going to take my case for disability to getting a letter in the mail stating that he was not going to be able to take my case, so I called up my attorney Steven Moore and spoke directly to him and he blessed me with one of the most blessing from God Mr. Randy Walton who not only took my case for disability but he contacted me directly and from that one phone call from him personally spoke volumes he didn’t have any Paralegals or secretaries going back-and-forth with me he contact me directly and he also put in a lot of work to work hand-in-hand with my doctors and myself to make sure that I was deemed fully favorable in my disability. I highly recommend him and if you looking for an attorney that gets results and that will help you one on one To get your SSID started I recommend that you contact Mr. Randy Walton Because not only that he’s An amazing attorney but a blessing from God.

Social Security Attorney Representation
Mr Walton was my representative for my appeals case, where he was attentive, walked me through everything, including what to expect and answered all of the questions I had. He stayed in contact with me through the process and went over all my issues and was well versed with them. Upon my hearing, nothing was a surprise for me as I answered the questions asked of me. Mr Walton answered and explained in detail my issues and why I should get benefits. He was excellent in every way for me. I would highly recommend him.

Fantastic Attorney for Social Security Disability and SSI
Mr. Walton represented me while I was navigating the very difficult world of getting SSDI approval. He made everything very easy and was supportive throughout the process. He responded quickly every time I had a question and returned every email and phone call I made to him even after he won my case for me! The responsiveness he gives his clients is outstanding. When it came time for my hearing I was even more happy with how professional, prepared, and thorough he was in presenting my case to the Administrative Law Judge. He made the case a slam dunk. He is the best attorney I have ever had, and I highly recommend him to anyone seeking help getting approved for SSDI or SSI.

Excellent Review
Randy Walton was the legal counsel assigned to my SSA case. Mr. Walton worked my case with the most professionalism. He remained in contact with me throughout my case and was able to answer all questions. I could provide many accolades to his abilities. However, with a favorable outcome to my case, the judge summed it up best to say that Mr. Walton had done a very good job in documenting the case and ensuring that everything was in place. I could not have asked for anything better. Thank you Mr. Walton!!

"Professional"
Randy was so very helpful throughout the entire process. Everything was explained in detail and in a way that was easy to understand. With excellent communication skills he always kept us up to date with the case as it moved forward. In a very stressful situation such as this, he expressed kind comforting words of encouragement for my wife. All in all a true professional!

Best Disability Attorney
I could not be any more pleased with the service and support Mr. Walton provided in my disability case. He was very thorough in asking questions about medical conditions, medications and side effects. Most important he kept in touch throughout the process to keep updated medical records. He was personally available to answer all questions throughout the process. i never felt rushed on any visit or phone call. I can’t imagine showing up at the hearing with the ALJ and not feeling like you have the best advocate representing you, I was very at ease at the hearing as the questions were similar to the questions Mr. Walton prepped me for. I had heard horror stories of attorneys prepping you while in the waiting room of the hearing. He was picked a day a week before and went over my file and most likely questions. He followed up a few days before to confirm I felt comfortable. I trusted his advice and received a fully favorable ruling. A good attorney is needed to navigate the complex social security process. I would highly recommend Mr. Walton,

Do yourself a favor, hire Randy!
In my wildest dreams, I never imagined how difficult it is navigating the Social Security Disability system by yourself. I tried twice on my own and was denied both times before I decided to hire Randy. He is polite, professional and best of all, accessible. Being disabled is hard enough and I'm so thankful I didn't have to spend time chasing a lawyer. Randy responded to all of my questions via phone, text or email within 24 hours....usually within 1 hour. We had a face-to-face meeting before my hearing and Randy laid all the cards out on the table regarding potential outcomes from my hearing. I appreciated his candor. My disability is a super rare case that most doctors have never even heard of. I was very impressed with the amount of time Randy spent learning about my condition and trying to figure out the best approach to take with the judge to maximize my chances of an approval. The outcome of the hearing was partially favorable ( exactly what Randy predicted at our face-to-face meeting ). I may not have received everything I had hoped for, but I'm still super happy with the outcome. Most important was the amount of stress Randy removed from the process. I highly recommend him!

Effective Attorney
Mr. Walton stayed on top of my case, making sure all my updates were submitted to SS. Rarely does a case get approved without a hearing. But I praise the Lord that my case made it to the attorney law judge sooner than expected and was approved without a hearing. Thank you Mr. Walton for staying on top of it.

Excellent Representation
If you're reading this, you're most likely searching for the best Social Security Disability representation possible, and you will need it! My review of Attorney Randolph B Walton is 100% honest and is from my own personal experience. Mr Walton represented me during a very difficult time with my disability case and was very successful in helping me receive a disability award for a "closed period" of time due to a bad injury, and from what I understand, is considered a rare award, but Mr Walton worked hard on my behalf from beginning to end and kept me updated on the claim-status every step of the way. I was very impressed that Mr Walton was quick to reply to all my messages/phone calls, which I considered to be so professional of him. I'm so glad I chose him as my attorney, and I highly recommend you call Attorney Randolph Walton today, because you deserve and need the BEST representation and I am confident that Mr Walton will work hard on your behalf.
