    I would like to take this opportunity to write a review for Walt Krueger. That said, I want to write a “different” review. I have practiced law for 37 years. I have known Walt for 37 years. I have never had a case with or against Walt. I have, however, for over 37 years referred case to Walt and never received a complaint. I would like to redirect the focus of this review, not to having had cases with and against Walt but rather to “Ethics.” Walt had ethics 37 years ago in law school. Not all of our classmates did! Walt has maintained that high ethical standard for 37 years. In your search for a lawyer, search for competence and demand ethics. Your will get both from Walt Krueger.
