About Walt
Q&A
  • What previous experiences, prior to your work at Balch, influence your practice?

    Prior to joining Balch, I worked in private practice in Macon, Georgia, a community much smaller than Atlanta, where I developed the skills needed to represent my business clients in a wide variety of matters. Working in this smaller community also taught me that an attorney and counselor can be a zealous advocate for his client, while at the same time maintaining the highest level of professionalism. I learned that quickly building a rapport and reputation of trust with the opposing party and counsel served my client's interests well. I do not practice law with an expectation of anonymity. It is important to me that I have a reputation for not only great results, but also the highest character.
