My Walker represented me in my social security disability claim. He was extremely courtesy and helpful in explaining the ins and outs of a disability claim. He was always knowledgeable about my case when I called him. He is personable, charming and quite a "nice guy" to have as an attorney. You should not look for any other lawyer to handle your disability claim. Mr. Walker is the "real deal". I feel today, that if I needed to that I could call Mr. Walker with any questions that I may have whether it be regarding my disability claim or any other type of claim.

Jon Walker was recommended to me by another attorney for my Social Security disability application. Along with being very professionable and personable, he was also very knowledgeable of the entire process and was very good at explaining it to me. He kept me informed all along the way and explained what was, or would be, happening in each step of the process. He gave me a very realistic and clear picture of my chances of winning my appeal, which was not overly optimistic. In the end, the result of the appeal was entirely favorable. I would not hesitate to recommend his services.
