Brilliant Attorney
When you deal with Attorney Walton you don't feel like you're dealing with a lawyer. You can feel comfortable knowing that you have someone fighting solely on your behalf unlike many attorney's that I've dealt with in the past. Sean provides timely and excellent advice when you need it the most and he isn't opposed to meeting with you if you aren't near his office. You shouldn't look any further if you need a lawyer.

A very satisfied customer
In 2014 I was involved in an auto accident at no fault of my own. I was injured and sought medical treatment. I kept the insurance company updated on my progress. At first they were supportive of my treatment, but then they began to question the length of time, despite having proof of my injuries from a trained, credible and knowledgeable medical practitioner. When I completed my treatment, both my insurance and the other driver's insurance companies refused to pay my medical bills or settle the case. Frustrated with not getting anywhere on my own, I immediately contacted attorney Sean Walton at the law offices of Walton & Brown. Sean was great! He was very empathic and attentive to my case. He and his staff clearly explained my rights as client and kept me updated constantly about the status of my case. I really appreciate the passion and commitment Sean and his staff demonstrated in getting this case resolved. I would highly recommend Sean if you are seeking an attorney, who is a true advocate and committed to achieving results for their clients.

It's handled!
I contacted Mr. Walton to handle an automobile accident I was involved in after I felt a previous firm treated me like, "just another case." Being a young adult, this process was very new and overwhelming. I wanted an attorney that would keep me well involved, informed and had my best interest at heart. Sean and his team took on the case quickly and followed up with me often, which gave me great confidence that the case was being handled properly. Once it came down to the settlement, the team settled for no less than a very fair compensation, to which I agreed upon. This process did not happen overnight, but I can say confidently it was handled with excellence and integrity.

Excellent service and attention to detail
Attorney Walton helped me with a car accident and given the circumstances the last thing I wanted to have to do was deal with the insurance agency on top of it all. He had great attention to detail and everything was taken care of for me. I got a great settlement and in the end I was very pleased. I would recommend him to anyone!
