Best Attorney Around!
Hands down the best attorney I’ve interacted with! Lawsuits can be very stressful, especially when you don’t know your rights/the laws. Mr. Walker not only calmed my nervous, but actually had me laughing at the end! You can tell he really cares about his clients/ potential clients, I highly recommend him and that’s says a lot bc I have extremely high standards and Mr. Walker way surpassed my expectations! Kuddos to you sir, all lawyers should be like you!

Great lawyer!
Fred Walker is awesome! I'm a complete layman when it comes to taxes and dealing with the irs. Fred explained everything to me in a way that I could totally understand and he helped me easily get through what I thought was going to be a total nightmare. I highly recommend Fred Walker to anyone who needs professional and expert help with irs or tax related concerns.

Called in for Chapter 7 Consultation
Went through a terrible ordeal the last 5 - 6 years and thinking about bankruptcy. Had already consulted with other lawyers in Austin who while helpful, had not prepared me for exactly what I would be facing. Even though I don't qualify for chapter 7, Fred thoroughly took the time to explain why and all my options. He didn't rush me off the phone, he made everything easy to understand, and took an interest in my situation. Wish I had found him years ago!

What Other Attorneys Failed to do Fred Came Through
What can I say? Fred Walker came through for me when four other attorneys could not but who were more than happy to charge me. After five years of dealing with a contract issue and its tentacles of entanglement, I found Fred. Within a month, the issue was resolved to my satisfaction saving me $100,000 in settlement. Where I was about to agree to pay more, he recommended another $25,000 reduction. He got it. In the 24-hours of waiting, having dealt with this big corporate attorney and their…creepy practices, I held my breath hoping the deal wouldn’t be kicked to the gutter as in the past had happened with my other attorney’s. With a big sigh of relief, Fred resolved the issue and got the extra reduction of $25,000. Some caveats about Fred Walker. Be patient. It takes time. However, if after a few weeks you don’t hear from Fred, call. He has your best interest at heart. He may ask you to refresh his memory, he has a lot of clients, but it will be the last time he asks. Talk to Marilyn about your concerns, and he’ll either pick up and talk to you right then and there, or he will call you back. He does. It may not be that same day or week, but he will call. Have patience. My only regret is that he only handles settlements and bankruptcy. I could use a Fred Walker for estate planning, arbitration with county taxes, HOA issues and the list goes on. It’s a tough world we live in. Some things we do to ourselves, other issues are caused by others. Oh, and Fred doesn’t charge an arm and a leg. I know. I’ve been gouged by the worst. His prices are fair and comes with a resolution to your problems. Best of luck to you and yours - Vicky

Great easy to talk to lawyer. Highly recommend.
Over the past two weeks I have been dealing with my mother in laws huge credit card debits, and I have been unsure of what to do. Finally I felt like I was in over my head and needed some help with what to do. I had a friend refer me to Fred Walker. With in a 10 minutes of talking to Fred on the phone I felt much better of the situation. Fred took all our info, gave his in site and then helped set us up on a very reasonable path that will get our situation taken care of and take a ton of stress off of me. Thank you for everything Fred Walker.

great lawyer - highly recommend
Fred is the best. I've had several major financial issues I've needed help with and he's always given me great advice and been so incredibly patient with me through the process. I can't thank him enough for making very stressful situations run as smoothly as possible and helping to get my future back on track. I truly could not be more satisfied with his services.

Excellent to Work With
I worked with Fred Walker over a period of almost five years for some financial services. He was very helpful and is a wonderful person to work with. He is knowledgeable, honest, has a high level of integrity, and is very good at explaining different options. He is also pleasant to be around. I would strongly suggest using Fred regardless of what your situation may be.

Mrs V.
I want to share with prospective clients of Mr Fred Walker how very professional and helpful he is. I went to his office with a concern that had me quite nervous and worried. He explained my options, was very courteous and not judgemental. He put me at ease despite my complex situation, and i left his office with a better understanding of my situation. I did not know what to expect upon my arrival but he put me at ease and i greatly appreciated the information he provided me, and the manner in which he handled my issue. I would certainly recommend him to any one without hesitation! We need more attorneys like Mr Walker.

Medical Bills
As soon as I walked into Mr. Walkers office he made me feel at ease and comfortable. He took the time to get to know me before even talking about my legal and financial problems. He even convinced me that I didn't need his services just yet!! If and when I do need a lawyer I will definitely be calling Mr. Walker.

Fred saved my BACON!
I don't have enough positive things to say about Fred Walker & Associates. I started my business as a hobby and a way to make a few bucks on the side. I never expected it to grow to what it is today. That's why I never thought I needed to know much about business formation and tax strategies. Needless to say, I soon found out how wrong I was. Fred and his team helped me right the ship with a clear and workable plan. Not only is Fred brilliant, but his sensitivity and compassion were exactly what we needed throughout a process that otherwise would be quite intimidating. Thank you so much, Fred, for all that you have done for me, my family and my company.

I recommend Fred Walker
On entering into a real estate venture there was indeed a need for an attorney. We found Fred Walker online and was quickly on our way. After a free consultation all matters and questions were addressed professionally and quickly. We feel confident about the deal that was made.
