Honorable
Steve represented me in-reference to my military case. I didn't know where to turn. Then, one day I was determined to find an attorney who would fight for my rights after 36 years of service to this nation. Steve went to work on this once he gathered all the facts. He's truly cares about his clients, and he is an amazing person. I was always well informed. His team did a wonderful job on my case. At the end of the day, I know who's got my back. In the end, Victory! Thanks Steve.

Fort Hood / criminal matter
I obtained Steve Walden as my Attorney when I hired him through Carlson Law Firm . He was amazing as well as his legal assistant Laura Coates . They were always available and helped me every step of the way ! I wouldn't have wanted anyone else to represent me as I received the best representation for my criminal matter on Fort Hood . Thank you guys for everything you did for me , always being there , communicating with me constantly & making me feel comfortable every step of the way !! I will be sure to refer your services for any legal matter I know Carlson Law firm may cover . V/R Michelle S.

I highly recommended the Carlson Law Firm
I want to just take a moment to say The Carlson Law Firm is amazing. This is my second case I used them for and they were awesome. Steven Walden did everything and got my case dismissed.

On point!
We live states away and Steve took over our case for one of his associates. I was impressed by his cross examination questioning to the other side. Knowing every answer and had evidence to every question he asked.....which of course caught the respondent in spatting fabricated statements to the court. He was very familiar with the judge we went before and naturally we won our case! Thank you Steve and all those who worked diligently at your firm with our case.

Great Attorney
Steven is an awesome attorney. I hired Steve to handle my divorce and custody battle. He took time to sit with me and explain every step. I was amazed how many details of my case he was able to remember between court dates. He is very knowledgeable about what evidence the judge wants to see. He caught my ex in many lies and called her out on it. I got awarded everything I asked for. I would definitely recommend Steve to anyone needing an attorney. Thank you Steve.

I was unjustly accused by the MPs on Fort Hood for allegedly entering with false DV plates from another car which Was mine and gave it on trading for the purchase of another car, I was arrested and subjected to criminal tresspassing charges, most of the MPs on fort hood do not know how to do their job correctly, thank God went to Mr. Walden who works for Carlson law Firm, the professionalism and knowledge of Mr. Walden was crucial to emerge victorious from the case, do not hesitate to go to Mr. Walden, highly recommended.

The Best
Hiring Mr. Walden changed everything in my case. He is considered to one of the best lawyers in central Texas. I saw he is highly respected by DA’s office and the judge. I highly recommend Mr. Walden.

Steve Walden is an honorable man.
Steve Walden helped our family. He investigated and found the truth and stood up for us. Steve Walden is quiet, polite, respectful and kind to all, even those against us. He walks in Faith. He gives encouragement to those in their darkest days when all hope seems lost. Steve Walden finds good in everyone & in every situation. He checked on us in jail early one Saturday when it was the Sabbath, his day off and his family time. He didn’t have to be there for us but he cares deeply. Steve Walden is an honorable man. He is a modern day, “Atticus Finch”. Thank you Steve Walden.

Above and beyond
Steve Walden is not just a very thorough and highly effective lawyer, he is also a compassionate person who enjoys helping people more than making money. Steve was able to get two felony charges against us dismissed before trial. He expertly compiled and presented all the exculpatory evidence and presented it to the DA. When he learned that the legal expenses were hurting us, he stopped charging us for his time.

Absolutely the best Lawyer
My child was ran over by a postal worker and then taken away from me by CPS because they said he wasn’t supervised which was untrue! I went to several lawyers who said they couldn’t help me but when I found Mr. Steve Walden he took my case immediately and was so compassionate and understanding. Not only did he take the case he got my kids returned to me within a week and then won my case completely!! Every time I called or emailed him he swiftly returned my calls and emails and his paralegal was also amazing and prompt as well. He actually cares about his clients and defended me and my kids they did not let people bully us he protected us and won everything!! This man is hands down the best Lawyer I’ve ever seen. The amount of care, understanding, patience, and hard work he gave to me made me calm and had 100% faith that he absolutely knew what he is doing and he has over 20 years of experience. I can not express my gratitude in words I’m so grateful that God led me to Mr. Walden and the Carlson Law firm it was the BEST decision I’ve ever made! Thank you Mr. Walden from the bottom of my heart and my family thanks you. Your a true blessing for anyone to have on their side.

Wonderful Attorney
Mr. Walden is a great attorney. He took care of my case in a timely manner. He was very organized and made sure that I was aware of everything that was going on every step of the way.

Review Steve Walden
Mr. Walden did an excellent job for myself and my daughter. He worked in multiple courts with us and resolved the issues as quickly as they could be resolved. He was prompt to respond to any e mails or communications we initiated. We are very pleased and highly recommend him and his staff.

Former Soldier Standing for Soldiers
I just wanted to take a moment to let you know of my experience with Mr. Steve Walden. Far too often, people are eager to write letters or make a phone call to complain, but I wanted to take the time to write to let you know that I am very pleased with the performance, support, professionalism and determination of Mr. Walden. Throughout my case, he was always very quick to respond, made himself available during times that most would consider after hours and always patient in explaining the status and details/developments of my case. Upon settlement of my case, I felt that it was a fair settlement amount and that Mr. Walden did everything in his power to ensure this process had truly been as smooth and comfortable as possible. Every step along the way, I was kept informed of the progress, promises were maintained, and copies of communication between Mr. Walden and the defendant’s attorney were always sent to me... I could not have asked for more! I thank and commend Mr. Steve Walden and his team for truly being For the People!!

Superior knowledge and passion for the law along with quality care and attention to my case.

Regardless of his schedule, he was always there to answer questions and made me feel like my case was top priority. Mr. Walden is dedicated and worked hard to get the best results for me. If you want stellar legal representation, Mr. Walden is the way to go.

Extremely Dedicated, Knowledgeable, Empathetic, Compassionate
To say that this man is a great attorney would be an understatement. Mr. Walden not only helped me with my military defense case, but he took a personal vested interest in it because he didn't feel as if an innocent soldier should lose his career over false allegations. Mr. Walden was more than helpful with legal advice and representation and due to his dedication to his job he was able to assist in having a not guilty verdict at my hearing. If you are looking for dependable representation as a soldier you should not go anywhere else besides Carlson Law Firm and more specifically, Mr. Steve Walden.

Intelligent, Compassionate, Smart and Successful
Mr. Walden handled my husband's mistakenly failed urinalysis given by the Army. He was so knowledgeable and professional and really put our minds at ease. He was successful in representing us and making the facts of the case known. The end result was in our favor and I honestly feel that without Mr. Walden's representation that most likely would not have been the case. We appreciate Mr. Walden and his staff so much and highly recommend him to any soldier or civilian in need of sound legal advice and representation!

Commitment comes with experience and caring comes understanding
Mr. Walden has represented me twice and both times he was successful. Like others I made the mistake of hiring a second hand lawyer and it was time and money lost. I have seen Mr. Walden work and I would highly recommend him to anyone who is in need of legal representation. Experience, Knowledge, Dedication, Honor, Commitment, Integrity, and Care is what you get with Mr.Walden.

You get what you pay for.
I first had spoken with Steve in the fall of 2013. I was in dire need of a knowledgable lawyer for a incident i was involved in. I had been arrested and I was released on a 100 thousand dollar bond. My charge was originally a second degree felony in Bell County. After two very long stressful years my criminal trial was finally over. Steve not only had my charge dropped to a third degree but he was also able to get me deferred adjudicated probation. Mr. Walden is a highly credible individual and he is a very diversified lawyer. He knew everything from child custody, CPS, divorce to of course my criminal part. Mr. Walden not once left me misinformed and he never made me appear in court unless needed. He responded to all my frantic calls and emails in a timely manner. However, none of these are the reasons why I'm writing this review. I am writing this review because Steve's actions after all was said and done. This man took my debt and he split it in half; saving me thousand of dollars. Yes, even tho he had worked countless hours during my trials were he had fraught vigorously for me. Mr. Walden doesn't practice law for the money but law simply is he's passion.
