Great Representation
Walter Riveria helped me be successful after being in a car accident. Walter suggested an auto body repair shop, a chiropractor, and a medical doctor after the accident. Mr Riveria sets a stellar example of what it means to represent someone after an accident. I have had experience with other attorneys in the past, in which I was dissatisfied with the outcome. I am amazed how efficient and effective his representation has been on our lives. I strongly recommend Walter to help anyone resolve the mess after a car accident. Walter was honest and upfront about expectations and how things would turn out. Thank you!

I would highly recommend Walter Rivera for anyone looking for a great attorney. Mr. Rivera represented me and my daughter. He always responded to any questions or concerns we may have had, keeping us informed every step of the way and fought for us when we couldn't. He did an excellent job handling our case and got us a favorable settlement. I've refereed him to several friends and family members. They've all said the same. It's not often that you find an attorney that cares so much about the well being of their clients.

Great Attorney! Highly Recommend!
Mr. Rivera represented me concerning a car accident I was involved in. He was able to get me a great settlement, which was more then I expected. He was so knowledgeable, but was able to explain things in a way I understood and always kept me informed of what was going on with my case. After he settled my case, Mr. Rivera was kind enough to advised me on other legal matters unrelated to the accident for free. No one ever wants to get in an accident, but at least I know I have an attorney that will always be there for me. It also doesn't hurt that he's easy on the eyes!

Not Overpaid
Walter represented me in an Auto Injury/Accident case last year.. Thankfully it never went to trial, I'm guessing because the Insurance Company knew they were dealing with an agressive, client-loyal attorney who was going to fight until the end for me. I was very impressed on how thorough Walter was with all aspects of my case. He was able to obtain a generous settlement, and I would recommend him to ANYONE who needed his help... JPW, Tempe, AZ
