Compassionate, Dedicated, and Professional
Words can't express my gratitude to Angela Walker and her assistant, Leslie Wenzel. I've never worked with a lawyer before, but due to recent discriminatory issues I experienced at my workplace, I contacted Angela thanks to a friend's recommendation. I'm so glad I did! Along with their incredible professionalism and consistently timely follow up, both Angela and Leslie were extremely kind and compassionate. Rather than filing a lawsuit, Angela was able to negotiate a solution with my company's counsel that I never thought was possible. Angela Walker is simply the best!

Blanchard & Walker : High quality service & peace of mind
I contacted Blanchard & Walker to review an employment agreement after they were referred to me by another attorney. On very short notice, they made time to review my case. My expectation was a short conversation of what I was looking for, what they would offer for a service and negotiation of the representation fees. What I got, was quality time, an in-depth review of my case, and a recommendation that brought me peace of mind. They are professional, thorough and represent what we all hope for from a high quality law firm. I would recommend Blanchard & Walker to anyone looking for legal services in employment law. I could not be more impressed.

Incrediable Attorney, Kind, Compassionate, Trustworthy and Passionate
I first had a consultation with Angela when I felt I was being discriminated by my employer. She was so kind and gave me several options to think about. Once I decided to go forward and retain her, I quickly learned why Angela Walker has the Top Rated reputation that she has! She faught so long and hard for me while at the same time, keep the lines of communication open to me at all times. There is a saying, Do it with Passion or Not at All.....Angela does it with passion!

Excellent Lawyer: Patient, Kind, Compassionate, and Ethical
I contacted Angela Walker regarding an issue I had with a former employer where I felt I had been mistreated. On multiple occasions, she took the time out of what I am sure is an extremely busy schedule to research my options, despite the fact I was not able to pay her anything for her effort and had not even agreed to retain her as my lawyer. While the stereotype of lawyers is often fast talking, money focused, immoral opportunists who care only about themselves - she proved to be the exact opposite of all of those things. She was kind, compassionate and really took her time explaining my options to me. It was really a pleasure to speak to someone with a moral compass like her. In the end I decided not to pursue the particular course of action she recommended for personal reasons, but I am very appreciative of the time she spent with me and have the highest regard for the way she treated me. She is obviously a very ethical person and I would certainly recommend her to anyone I know if they ever needed similar services. She is a pleasure to deal with and I have no doubt she would provide top notch reperesentation.

Highly Professional and Insightful
Angela assisted me in a legal case that required insight, patience, and a prescriptive approach. Angela was able to decipher the key action steps to take, through phases that were unclear at times. I plan to continue my professional relationship with Angela and trust her with future business cases.
