About me

After working for large litigation and smaller boutique firms, Mr Wallpe quickly realized that his goal of providing a high level of client support and attention is only realistic in a small firm environment. So he exchanged the high pressure, high volume business model of the big firms for a smaller town vision more in line with his ideals of what law and justice should resemble.  Mr. Wallpe's practice includes mediation, arbitration, general civil litigation, consumer law, real estate and bankruptcy.

    I endorse this lawyer's work. Mr. John Wallpe is a great advocate for his clients. He believes in helping them to his full ability. He will go above and beyond to get a just result for his client. He is conscientious and hard working. I would want him on my side in any legal dispute! He assists his clients in resolving their problems in whatever way is the best outcome for them. He will tell you the truth even if it means you don't really need a lawyer to solve your problems. He is honest and direct. I have associated with him in the past and both my clients and I have been 100% satisfied with his work.
