Fantastic folks who saved my otherwise hopeless auto accident case. It was so disheartening to be injured and exhausted with a bad concussion, which turns out to be a notoriously hard-to-settle claim, but everyone at Van Der Walde was professional and thorough. They explained everything along the way as I was utterly clueless about the insurance settlement process - I'd never been in an auto accident of any sort before, and the first lawyer I was working with left me scared and baffled. Whereas Paul, Eva, and Julia stuck by me the whole way, explaining things in normal human terms, not legalese, and going above and beyond anything I would have expected from a lawyer. Thanks so much to all of you at Van Der Walde!

My husband and I met with Paul during a very stressful time in our lives. We had just been involved in a serious auto accident in which the other party was seriously injured. We had many concerns about what to expect going forward and felt we needed to seek some legal advice. Paul offered to graciously meet with us on short notice. Even though Paul usually represents injured parties in such cases, he took the time to meet with us and inform us of what we can anticipate in the future and of the options that are available to us. Paul was very attentive, informative and thorough in our discussion of our situation. The knowledge he imparted and the sensitivity he displayed when addressing our concerns helped give us some peace of mind. Paul is a very personable, approachable, highly knowledgeable attorney whose advice to us during a very difficult time is appreciated beyond measure. Paul is a consummate professional who truly cares, and I would highly recommend him!

Paul and his staff are exceptional attentive to my concerns and display professionalism. He and his staff would respond very promptly when I have to contact his office with questions. They also keep me inform regularly about the status of my case and I would strongly recommend him to anyone that need a lawyer working on their behalf.
