  • Joanne Kay Leifheit

    I endorse this lawyer. I referred a client to Attorney Walny for a contested probate matter where I had a conflict. Attorney Walny served the client well and negotiated a settlement that worked for all parties. Attorney Walny's demonstrated experience and skills working with clients was very apparent throughout the proceedings.
