Practice Areas

When you need surgery, you want a surgeon experienced with your procedure and in the operating room.


Hiring a lawyer is no different.


When you need to go to trial, you want a trial lawyer who understands your case, who has the tenacity and talent to win it, and who won’t hesitate to bring your case to trial if a settlement is not favorable.


That’s the kind of trial lawyer you’ll find at Walters Renwick Richards Skeens & Vaughan, P.C. Our reputation in the courtroom is known—and it shows in the settlements we’ve achieved for our clients.
