  • Jeffrey Ryan Hall

    Jim Waller is a knowledgable, compassionate attorney that represents his clients with energy. No criminal/DUI case seems too complicated and his clients always seem to have great outcomes with their cases based on his hard work and experience. His knowledge base extends into the complicated realm of family law, child custody, and support as well where he approaches his cases as an "out-of-the-box" thinker, strategically planning his case resolutions in ways that substantially benefit his clients. He is someone you can trust to fight for you.

    Mr. Waller is an attorney-advocate of the highest order - he is very skilled, experienced, and sharp. His careful but straightforward approach to family law issues in my personal observation is a valuable asset to his clients, and his professionalism is a credit to the legal community.
