Most people will experience some form of injury at some point in their lives. Not every injury gives rise to a legal claim. When another person or entity is legally at fault for the incident that led to your injury, you may have a valid legal claim. An injury lawsuit may allow you recover money compensation for damages. You have to prove that the person you are making the claim against breached a legal duty owed to you, and that the breach led to the accident and your resulting injuries. You also must prove that you suffered actual damages as a result of the injury.

At Walz Law Offices, our lawyers interview disadvantaged and injured persons or their families because of consequences of an injury that permanently prevents an individual from performing gainful work, or that have suffered a life altering loss of enjoyment.

We have been in practice for over 15 years collectively. We have the staff and resources to assist you in your pursuit of justice. We shall seek, and honor the truth we find with diligence and vigor. Often the justice we are able to achieve is money justice, to compensate your loss.

Nothing is as important as your health, and having to understand doctors, medical bills and insurance companies is the last thing that you should be worrying about when you’re healing. We have a very successful history of managing all of these factors and achieving maximum results for our clients.

James R. Walz helped me resolve some of the critical issues that I had with my former employer. He was instrumental in crafting the 'final' draft that I got from my former employer which is extremely important for me for my future opportunities. He is very prompt in drafting responses and is very communicative. He is an excellent negotiator and helped settle a very difficult matter successfully out of the court. He earned my 'Five-Star' recommendation!


James has been my lawyer for 10 plus years. He has represented me a few cases including a business case were on of my customers owed me some money and then tried to sue me. He got me what was right he also saved me from losing my license in a DUI case and represented me in a divorce case and did VERY well for me. He has also represented other friends and family members and they were all happy with the outcome. I wouldn't use anybody else.


After being medically discharged from the military and struggling with obtaining Social Security Disability, I sought the help of attorney James Walz. Thanks to his knowledge, skill, and expertise, he helped me navigate a complex bureaucracy and successfully plead my case before a judge. A good man and a great lawyer, I highly recommend James Walz for all your legal needs!


Attorney James Walz has provided us the best legal services ever. His service has been exceptional, both in terms of the legal advice and counseling as well as the highly responsive, timely nature of his work. He has engendered in us a deeper respect for the legal profession.


A couple years ago my father was hospitalized with dementia and other health problems. I had no idea how to deal with any of myriad of legal issues that came up with the deterioration of his health, but Mr. Walz got me through it all. I live in DC, so I was dealing with all these issues long distance. Mr. Walz maintained my father’s finances, and dealt kindly and honestly with both my father and myself, until my father passed, and then he helped my brother and I close the estate. I honestly don't know how I would have got through those 2 years without his help. I'm so lucky to have had such a kind, helpful, knowledgeable attorney, and I highly recommend him.


James Walz is more than just the most knowledgeable attorney I have ever met. He's guided me through the most difficult experience in my life with integrity and respect. 5 stars for a rock star.
