After a serious car accident that required multiple surgeries and a lengthy hospitalization it was clear that dealing with the insurance companies and managing the mounting medical bills while I was healing was not something I could focus on. Matt Walter was recommended by a family friend and agreed to meet me in my hospital room the very next day after we contacted him. He listened to what had happened and reviewed all the materials we had accumulated before diving into what he thought he could do to help. He explained the process of what would be involved and was honest that these types of accidents could take up to a couple years to settle or even go to court if necessary. I immediately felt at ease that I had made the right choice and began to relax because I knew I didn’t have to rush to settle or take a check because Matt would handle everything. The entire team at Helton, Walter and Associates were always accessible, responded to every question or request and made me feel like a priority throughout the entire process. Matt was able to negotiate a settlement that prevented a prolonged court battle, cleared all of my medical expenses and provided some compensation for the ordeal myself and my family had to endure. I would recommend Matt Walter and his firm Helton, Walter, and Associates to anyone who is put into a similar situation and would absolutely use them again myself.


I called Matt Walter's office at a time my world had fallen apart. Betrayed. Traumatized. Scared. My marriage of more than 40 years was over, and I needed help. Matt's calm, competent, steady legal advice and action literally made all the difference in my survival.  I felt I received clear, consistent direction and unwavering support throughout the heart-wrenching divorce process. It was definitely the worst time of my life as I faced an adversarial, bizarre year when my whole life turned upside down. Matt responded to my questions, calls, and emails with timely, honest, knowledgeable answers. I had the legal support and anchor I needed to be able to move forward with my life.

Matt Walter is a caring, compassionate, and highly competent attorney. I have watched Matt work with two adults with developmental disabilities who needed legal counsel for different situations.  Matt treated both of these individuals with respect, dignity, and so very much kindness.  I was not only impressed by Matt’s knowledge of the legal matters, his efficiency in dealing with the issues, and his professional manner in court but also with his compassionate heart in assisting his clients with understanding what they would be experiencing.  He is a fine person as well as a very skilled attorney.

I sought out Ephraim Helton due to a reputation of legal success.  I found the reputation to be true, but lacking.  What I found lacking in the reputation, there was no mention of the care and compassion shown by Mr. Eph Helton and his staff.  Like most divorces involving children, emotions for me ran high.  Eph made his position very clear during my initial visit….”our focus will be on what is in the best interest of your son.”  Thank you Eph for your integrity and boldness to maintain the focus on what my son and I truly needed.  You made the most out of a bad situation and I would recommend Ephraim Helton to anyone when I hear they are in need of legal representation.

Stacy has been amazing to me and my family. In February we went in to talk to a lawyer we had no idea what we were getting into whatsoever. And from that first day meeting her I knew she would help us. Here we are in July and still fighting our case but not one minute of a day has stacy gave up on me. Not only is she a great lawyer but a great friend. I can have a bad day and all I gotta say is I need somebody to talk to and I can tell her anything. But hands down if anybody needs a good lawyer Stacy Coontz is the BEST!!
