Poughkeepsie Real Estate Lawyers

Other Lawyers Build Practices; We Build Relationships

The relationship you have with a lawyer is everything. You trust them with your first major transaction, like purchasing a house or writing contracts for setting up a business. If you've been charged with a criminal offense, you may be trusting your lawyer with your life.

That person is your lawyer, and you know you can count on him or her. That's what people think of when they hear Wallace & Wallace. Our lawyers have over 70 years of legal expertise in a wide range of practice areas.

When You Care, Word Gets Around

Helping our neighbors is at the core of Wallace & Wallace. It's the reason why Herb Wallace started the firm in 1979 and why his son Craig joined the practice in 1995. We live in the Hudson Valley, and for over 30 years, our practice has been there for individuals, families, local businesses and even municipalities. We provide legal expertise and support that makes a difference in so many lives. That's why clients return and refer family and friends.
