5.0 stars 17 totalReview Christopher Walton
Posted by Jeffrey
I was in a bike accident in 2015, and Chris could not have been a better advocate for myself and for my family. He always emailed and spoke with me on the phone at every step in the process. He let me know my options whenever a decision had to be made, and reassured that the process would take care of it self. He did everything in his power to get the best and largest settlement he could. I now understand and deeply respect everything Chris did for me.

I was rear-ended and my new car was totaled.
I remember being back and forth between whether or not I should hire an attorney or take on the insurance company alone. I'm glad I hired an attorney. The accident is stressful enough without the added stress of dealing with insurance.
Chris fought for the best settlement possible and always made himself available to talk, was always professional, and always provided excellent advice. Mostly, what I liked about him was that his primary concern was always to do what was best for the client.
Chris is the guy you want on your side if you've been injured in an accident. I can't say enough good things about him and his staff.

After being hit by a bus while walking down the sidewalk, I called Christopher for some advice as to how to proceed. It was clear within the first 5 minutes of conversation that his top priority was to make sure I received the best medical treatment possible, quickly, and that I was able to get back to work as soon as possible (I'm self employed). To be honest, at first, I was skeptical and thought he was just speaking typical lawyer talk. Not so!
We worked together for the next 20 months and my health and well being remained his top priority. Throughout the process, he always took the time to explain everything clearly, keep me informed and even took time to speak to my spouse if he had questions about anything. The insurance company representing the bus company was disorganized and often unresponsive; my case got passed around to three or four different adjusters and at least one of those adjusters was extremely rude and unreasonable. Thankfully, Christopher is tenacious! He stayed on them and ultimately made them accountable. He is a true gem and I believe it would be impossible to find another lawyer as competent, caring and kind as he is. It was a pleasure working with him.

I worked with Chris on a personal injury lawsuit, which he brilliantly handled,
despite the delays thrown his way by the insurance company and its representatives.
He is a state-of-the-art attorney in every way: knowledgeable, professional, trustworthy,
reliable, efficient, ethical, and then some. In a case which I thought may have taken
years, Chris navigated his way through the hurdles placed by the insurance company
and, through his skill and toughness, got a settlement way beyond my greatest
expectations. If you are looking for an attorney who totally erases all the negative
stereotypes of attorneys and replaces them with glowing qualities, he's the one
to get the job done. You will be thrilled you hired him!

While handling my case, Chris Walton was consistently professional, competent, and caring.
He was accessible and returned all my messages promptly. In every interaction he was courteous and calm.
He always kept me informed about what was happening, what was going to happen, and what both of us needed to do. I learned early on that I could trust him to handle the details; there was never any need to worry that something would be missed or overlooked.
He provided me with legal advice but never pushed me into anything. He made it clear in the beginning that ultimately the case belonged to me and he stayed true to that promise.
When he took my case, he said he would be committed to seeing it through. When the case hit an unexpected snag, his commitment to it stayed firm.
Chris cared about me and my situation and he was flexible. I could ask him for extra help and he would understand and do what he could to accommodate me (for example, by getting an extension for a deadline). In fact, on more than one occasion Chris anticipated what I would need and got it for me without my even having to ask.
His professionalism made it easy to deal with him, his competence helped me win my case, and his sincere caring gave me an advocate. I consider myself fortunate to have had him as my lawyer.

Chris Walton was by far the most attentive, kind, knowledgeable and hardworking attorney I've ever met. And in my business we have hired quite a few attorneys from corporate to patent and licensing work. They're very good, but Chris Walton's calibre is on a different level. His desire to do his utmost for me was evident from the beginning, and his support and hard work never waivered throughout the long process. I could not more highly recommend him. He is excellent and dedicated.

If you need an outstanding lawyer to represent you in an auto accident injury case, read this review. Should Mr. Walton take your case, consider yourself very fortunate. I'm one of those highly satisfied clients. Here's why Chris receives my highest 5-Star rating.
After months of struggling as a defendant in a high speed rear collision case, my own attorney reached out to Walton Law for help. Several detailed telephone calls later, Mr. Walton agreed to become my lead attorney. In addition to thoroughly reviewing every piece of existing evidence and methodically uncovering lots of new information, he skillfully rebuilt my case and my confidence. Chris patiently walked me through the highly detailed process of strategically winning an accident injury case in San Diego County. He explained how innocent victims are frequently denied fair compensation for pain and suffering. I am most impressed with Mr. Walton's thorough, step-by-step, pre-trial preparation process. Specifically, during depositions and mediation with the defendant's attorney, I felt comfortable, relaxed and emotioinally prepared to handle every question thrown at me. I would not have won my case without Chris by my side.
The legal profession is not for the faint of heart. It takes lots of smarts and years of practice to truly master the art of law. Having worked with dozens of legal types, including plenty of licensed attorneys during my 25+ year career (real estate, environment and construction), I rarely come across professionals of Chris Walton's caliber. The really good ones typically charge hundreds of dollars per hour and generaly come saddled with enormous egos. Fortunately, Chris is neither arrogant nor overpriced. At all times, he demonstrates amazing compassion for his clients and his profession while sustaining a steely resolve during critical legal proceedings.
I would use Walton Law again in a heartbeat. Thanks, Chris!

We are very lucky to have Chris represent us as attorney after we had an unexpected accident.
He went through all of the details with us, and was very considerate. He helped us big time to negotiate with different parties. His professionalism and integerity are well respected. I would highly recommend him to all of my friends who need help on legal dispute.

Upon first visit and through entire proceedings with Mr. Walton he was compassionate as to my feelings regarding the loss of my family member. There was never a doubt that Mr. Walton would be professional at all times with all people connected with the case. He stayed on course through many ups and downs and was able to close the case brilliantly and with great success. Please never hesitate to hire Mr Walton to be your lawyer. Jackie
