Great Attorney
Attorney Dewalt is the best attorney I know--and I have had several. He works hard to fight for you and for what is right and does it in an honest and firm manner. If not for him I would still be floundering through the legal muck that is created by those who abuse the family law system. Thank you Jack for all that you did for us.

My Excellent Review For My Attorney, Jack DeWalt
I have the highest respect for my attorney, Jack DeWalt. Since the beginning of his representation of me in my legal matters, he made every effort to thoroughly understand my case, and to present it truthfully to the court. His work reflects the highest level of integrity. He is honest, trustworthy and efficient. His written court documents were complete and accurate. He was consistently well prepared when appearing for court hearings and courteous to everyone in the court room setting. He kept me informed about family law and how it applied to my cases. His knowledge and application provided successful outcomes for me. I found it easy to ask him questions, as he is very approachable as well as considerate in providing information in a timely manner. He provided wise counsel and practical solutions. I highly recommend him as an attorney for all of these reasons, and also because he is an attorney who has compassion, as well as the knowledge of how to apply family law to the realistic needs of families today. It was a pleasure to be represented by Jack DeWalt, and I fully trust him for all of my future legal matters.

Jack DeWalt is an Attorney who is honest, efficient and brilliant, and has great compassion for his clients. I felt completely comfortable with each recommendation he suggested and knew I was in the best care going through a difficult situation/divorce. Time was never wasted and situations never prolonged unnecessarily. Jack truly cares about his clients and I have recommended him to a few others already. Thanks again Jack for your guidance, being a great human being and incredible attorney!!

He's the best and brightest.
I have known Jack DeWalt for over 10 years. He is the only one I could or would trust going through my divorce and child custody battle. He has always had the best interest of my children at the heart of any decision and plan he has made and he has helped me through the toughest of times. I have the utmost respect for Jack.

Committed to his clients and the law
I have known Mr. DeWalt since 2007. I know him to be principled, conscientious and extremely knowledgeable. Jack has helped me with marital and child support/custody issues, as well as advanced health care directives. I wouldn't trust anyone else with my legal affairs and have confidently referred several friends to him.
