Highly Recommend
Chanda Brown is the only lawyer I will recommend in town. She took my case when other lawyers wouldn't because they was afraid they wouldn't make any money off my case due to my car accident. She worked with the insurance company for a fair settlement. Believe it or not I got more than expected.

Injury claim car accident
Chanda is amazing. She is so helpful. She answered all of my questions and was able to put my mind at ease while I worked on my recovery she handled everything on the legal side. She was always available and responded promptly. I would recommend her to anyone who needs assistance with injury claims from an auto accident.

Very Satisfied Customer
In 2014 I was involved in an auto accident, which resulted in some injury. I followed the recommendations of my treating physician and sought ongoing treatment. Once I completed my treatment, my insurance company and the at fault driver's insurance company refused to pay my medical bills to settle the case. I immediately contacted Walton & Brown to assist me with resolving this issue. Chanda was great! She was very empathic and responsive. She constantly keep me updated on the status of the case. Thanks to her due diligence, we were able to satisfactorily settle the case in a reasonable amount of time. If you are looking for a true advocate and someone that gets results, I would highly recommend attorney Chanda Higgins Brown and the law offices of Walton & Brown to help you resolve your legal issues.

Attorney Chanda Brown Review
I hired Attorney Brown for a wrongful termination case. I unfortunately had to relocate out-of-state right after hiring Attorney Brown so we had to do a lot of communication via email and phone calls. I think there was a slight misunderstanding as to what I want the end result to be in my case and what I was looking for. However once that was resolved our working relationship moved forward smoothly and as quickly as the legal process would allow.

No Response
I really heard wonderful things about Chanda Brown I called into her law office the receptionist was very rude and unfriendly. She acted if tho I was annoying her by inquiring for legal assisatnce, I was unable to get a response from Mrs. Brown. Her receptionist gave me the run around I called another attorney. I was very disappointed as I was referred to Chanda Brown by a very trustworthy and reliable source.

Response from Chanda Brown April 27, 2017
I apologize we were not able to take on your case. We normally do good work for our clients and our office receives numerous phone calls every day for people looking for legal assistance. Unfortunately, we are not able to assist everyone that calls. We are a small firm and we have to be extremely selective about each new client we accept. You did not leave your name so I am unsure of exactly who you are or the facts of what my assistant may have told you to better address your concern. I am happy you were able to find another attorney and I wish you the best of luck in whatever your legal issue may be.
