Chambers and Partners interviews attorneys in the region to determine rankings. One reviewer stated about Walzer Melcher, “I would give them nothing short of a glowing recommendation. They’re organized, they’re fighting the right fight, they don’t over litigate a case, they don’t under litigate a case and their written work is always spot-on. That whole firm is a good firm. They do really, really good work.”


Chambers and Partners annually provides nationwide rankings of law firms based on painstaking research over a six-month period. Unlike other legal rating agencies, Chambers and Partners focuses largely on attorney feedback, results and overall impressions in ranking law firms.


“This is quite an honor,” says Walzer Melcher Founding Partner Peter M. Walzer, dubbed the “prenup guru” by Chambers and Partners. The ranking in Chambers and Partners reflects the high quality of work provided firm-wide, according to Partner Christopher C. Melcher. “We have a really talented team in place and our attorneys and staff are incredibly dedicated to their craft and most importantly, toward advising our clients,” Melcher said.

Walzer Melcher has handled some of the largest divorce cases in California and represents actors, athletes, entrepreneurs, celebrities, executives and high net worth individuals.  The firm handles complex litigation at the trial and appellate court levels. In addition to settling and litigating divorces when necessary, the firm advises clients on premarital, postmarital and separation agreements, custody issues and other family matters involving cross-state and international border considerations.
