Experience in
their Own Words


I have worked with a lot of Attorneys in my 30 years in business, but I've never encountered another attorney that I thought was as thorough and detailed as Walt. His negotiating skills are excellent and other attorneys are now asking me for Walt's number so that he can assist them with their own legal matters. I would strongly trust Walt to handle matters for me in the future. My experience with Walt was excellent.

I have worked with Walt for the past five years. Walt has become our difference maker in obtaining resolutions that work. He has the expertise and the sense of urgency required to make a difference. Over the past five years Walt has earned the respect of my team and several of my peers in the Industry and no matter what type of work out I encounter, Walt is always my first call.

I have worked with Walt for the past two years on many successful CRE workouts. We recently worked together closing a new CRE loan that had many complexities, including a large out of state industrial building, a long term land lease, a tenant that was a joint venture of two large out of state companies and it involved a number of environmental and title/survey issues. We were challenged to close the loan within 3 weeks of credit approval. I organized a conference call with our borrower and their counsel and Walt walked everyone through a checklist and discussed each parties responsibility. He even assisted me by working directly with the title company and our borrower to assist them in obtaining critical documentation. In the end, Walt’s willingness to take ownership of the transaction and meet the closing date resulted in a very satisfied customer for the bank. Walt is prompt, thorough, knowledgeable, experienced and always checks back to make sure we are satisfied, and I look forward to engaging him on many more lending opportunities.

Walt is an extremely knowledgeable attorney who can provide excellent advice on complicated real estate transactions ranging from leases to sales to tenant disputes. He understands the business needs of the large institutional owner to the small entrepreneur. He works well with opposing counsels of all personality types. Walt is sensitive to time pressures and will quickly (and accurately) finish tasks before tight deadlines.
