Mr.Walden is a experienced lawyer with lots of patience. He has been working on my case for a month or so and so far all is well.

Steve took care of all of my issues in a timely manner. He kept me in the loop to everything going on and told me everything honestly. I am extremely pleased with the outcome of my case, all thanks to him.

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.

Served out of state and past Texas work hours less than 36hrs prior to the first divorce hearing, began making calls to obtain an attorney the following day less than 24hrs out from court, and as luck would have it, The Carlson Law Firm and Steve Walden would be the only law firm to return my call. It seems Walden just didn’t have time for the case, case overload, or a simple lack of interest in it; either way, he needed to inform of his lack of interest prior to assuming the case. Poor staff work from the get go; for example, I requested the paralegal to include several key items of interest in discovery and was ignored, I received requests for the same tax statement—already sent—3x times, received 3x times property division examples belonging to other parties, my case mixed up with another that contained the same last name, no monthly billing to this date minus the initial bill statement back in March of 2016, the paralegal laughed at me over the phone when I expressed concern over my retirement—declaring that I would still have disability, which I do not, though Hollingsworth seemed to think I did, laughed at again when I mentioned my spouse refers to herself as a ‘survivor’, and repeated references to military jargon that I never really cared for since I did not see how the military transcended itself into a civil divorce case. Poor staff work.
As for the attorney, he seemed disinterested from the very first meeting in his office. After my experience with the attorney and reading the remaining reviews, I suspect he cherry picks many of his cases for the best results. Some early on assumptions concerning income and property led to a lack of discovery docs and tended to move the divorce toward a standard military divorce scenario—no assets, lots of bills, a spouse that has no income, and now let’s divide retirement and call it quits. He did a poor to nonexistent job of not only explaining the divorce process, rather also of disclosing the content of petitions and counter petitions submitted on my behalf prior to their submission to OC and the court. He put me behind from the very beginning. To this day, my follow on attorney is attempting to uncover my spouse’s true retirement income for division in final divorce decree, though OC continues to side step the issue. In all fairness, Mr. Walden continued to hit road blocks from OC in terms of providing docs, establishing court dates, or even presenting property proposals as the case proceeded. Mr. Walden filed to withdraw from the case after 8 months or so with no objection from myself.
Has a solid professional working relationship with fellow attorneys in the area.
Very calm and collective demeanor (likely good for child custody or adoption cases).
More than likely, a solid attorney to retain for military style cases.
Poor job of explaining the step by step process of divorce, along with expectations.
Poor internal staff organization and staff work.
Too accommodating to opposing counsel requests and desires.

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!!

Mr. Walden is by far the best attorney to have represent you in your case. Mr. Walden handled my case with sincere care and attention. 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.

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.

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!

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.

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.
