About me

I am Walter Haines and I appreciate you visting my web page.


I suppose the first thing I want to tell you is that I CARE alot about my clients.  While many attorneys may say this, I TRULY MEAN IT. It has long been my passion to serve other people. Over my 37 years of practicing law, all of my areas of practice have consistently invoved the service of clients. I am very, well known by the public and my adversaries as a staunch advocate for my clients and am proud to be listed as a 2014 Super Lawyer.


I have handled over 2000 cases.  The proudest achivement in handling these cases is when a new case is referred from an existing or past client. This is the "crown jewel" in my book. It tells me that my clients trust me with their friends and relatives- a great compliment.


I believe when a person is passionate about what they do, it shows in the results of their work. I have taken on many of the largest corporations in the world in complex litigation am I am proud to say that my clients have been awarded in excess of $300,000,000. I think these results speak for themselves.  


I look forward to assisting you with your legal matters.  Please contact me and let me know how I can help you. One thing I can assure you is that if I am unable to help you, I will go the extra mile to provide you resources so you may find the help you need.
