Absolutely Excellent Attorney
Mr. Walker made me feel comfortable in his office and in person. He is very approachable and a very relaxed demeanor. His consultation costs are a tad high, but worth every penny. He spoke to me about relevant stories about his family and life that directly related to me. Of course, he let me make my own decisions. PS He deserve 6 starts if possible. Remember to bring all important documents and remember don't worry!

A responsive firm, would recommend to others
I was pleased with my choice of Mr. Walker as my attorney for my case. I found his firm to be extremely responsive and reliable. They helped me to navigate the various options in my case, and ultimately helped me to get an acceptable settlement. The firm seems to best specialize in business and transportation law, and I would use them again for legal services in those areas.

VA benefits
I was in the process of getting my veteran benefits from health issues that resulted from being in the military. We tried to handle the case on our own but was refused benefits. We hired Mr. Walker to do research and prepare documentation to present our case. After some long research and lots of hours to give them all the information needed we were awarded disability benefits. I will continue to use him for personal and business legal matters.

Landlord/Tenant dipute
Clayton Walker helped me on very short notice. He was extremely knowledgeable and very friendly. He was my first time visiting a lawyer and I was extremely nervous but when I met him that feeling went away. He told me what could happen and what to do for my situation. He put my mind at ease. I very greatly appreciate everything he did for me and my family. I would recommend him to anyone who needs help.

Landlord / Tenant Dispute
Mr. Walker represented me in a tenant – landlord dispute. Mr. Walker was very knowledgeable in this area of law. He provided me reasonable legal options, and explained possible risks with each option. I was impressed by Mr. Walker’s responsiveness and experience. From the beginning, I was informed of possible outcomes and provided sufficient information so I could make intelligent choices. I found Mr. Walker to be trustworthy and I was able to rely on his professional advice. I received professional, prompt service throughout the case. I know deadlines and timetables are critical. All of my case deadlines were met well in advance. I was properly prepared for deposition and trial. I especially noticed that Mr. Walker had an efficient system in place, minimizing my expenses. Yes, I would recommend Mr. Walker’s professional, legal services. His advice was spot-on and he went out of his way to minimize his legal fees through the process of my case.

No Show for Appointment
In February I made an appointment Clayton Harold Walker Jr. When we talked on the phone I gave him all my contact info. I showed up at the appointed day and time and no one was in the office. There is a sign by the door that said to call a number if no one was in. I called the number, went to voice mail. I waited another 15 minutes and called the number again. My call went to voice mail. I left. To this day I’ve not heard back from Clayton H Walker Jr.
