Donald WallI am proud to have attained Martindale-Hubbell’s® AV® peer-review rating. My practice has primarily focused on family law. My legal experience includes sophisticated commercial litigation, which is a true asset to my private family law practice.

Clients call my firm and speak directly with me. I strive to make myself available to my clients when they need advice or guidance. I also like to preserve a sense of humor about life and bring that to my legal practice.

I personally handle all aspects of my clients’ claims. This hands-on approach allows me to provide the kind of service that is truly beneficial
to my clients:

  • Keeping legal fees manageable
  • Gaining a full understanding of my clients’ cases
  • Providing one-on-one legal counsel
