D. “Sonny” Walter

An attorney’s job is to give information and advice on the pros and cons of a particular course of action in a case and let the client decide on what the best course of action to take is based upon that advice.

With this law office you get an attorney who is not afraid to take your case to trial. Therefore, I will not plead someone guilty because of the “fear” of trying a case.

The decision whether to try the case to a jury or enter a plea is the client’s decision to make after a full explanation of the options by the attorney and after the client has received and reviewed all of the information in the case.
