Positive Expectations
Colin (not our lawyer at this time) was very forthright with us and we felt nervous yet comfortable speaking with him. We will make a decision of services after weighing in all others as Colin suggested.

Extremely knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with!
Colin Walsh and team are phenomenal at what they do! All of their staff were prompt in response and always available to answer questions from the beginning. Colin is extremely knowledgeable! He’s straightforward, realistic in setting expectation and gets the ball moving. I never once felt I was in bad hands. Overall, I couldn’t be happier with my experience with Wiley Walsh, P.C., and would highly recommend them to anyone in need.
