He has tried cases to verdict in court and arbitrated matters to successful conclusions before panels of the American Arbitration Association and JAMS. Mr. Walker also devotes significant time to pro bono matters.
Through his involvement with the BBA’s Federal Practice Section and Civil Courts Committee, Mr. Walker worked with several local federal judges to help re-draft the Local Rules of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Alabama.
