About me

Retaining the right lawyer to
represent you in claims involving severe injuries or wrongful death is
crucial.  When there have been
serious injuries or a death as a result of negligence from treatment by a doctor,
hospital, or other medical care provider, or as a result of a motor vehicle
accident, construction accident, fall down, premises negligence, or other
event, your attorney can be the difference between a successful financial
recovery and no recovery.  In
choosing Walter G. Alton, Jr. as your attorney you have retained a dedicated
trial lawyer with an established record of success in prosecuting all types of
difficult personal injury cases. 
His record of success in handling lawsuits involving brain damage, birth
injury, wrongful death, accidents, and severe injuries and damages of all types
is well known.  When he takes on
your claim, you not only obtain the benefit of his more than 25 years of
experience but you have a genuine trial lawyer, not a businessman, fighting for
you.  Mr. Alton, educated at Yale and Columbia Law School, is a highly
respected litigator whose trial skills, tenacity, and determination is
respected by his colleagues and opponents.  In selecting Mr. Alton and his firm, you are being
represented by not only a tough advocate but also a compassionate one who will
advise you in regard to all aspects of dealing with your case and obtaining a
just award.  He understands pain,
suffering, damages and losses.  
His firm offers complete representation and takes pride in making sure
that each client’s concerns and problems are addressed.  All clients are encouraged to
communicate regularly with Mr. Alton and his staff in regard to their cases and
keep in contact with the office. 

The excellence of Mr. Alton’s
representation has won him recognition by his peers.  His firm has the highest rating that Martindale-Hubbell awards and he is listed in their Directory of Pre-eminent Attorneys. As
well as Best Lawyers in America, Best Lawyers in New York and SuperLawyers.
