About me

Attorney Frank Walker focuses primarily on Criminal Defense, Personal Injury-Medical Malpractice, Appeals and Wrongful Death Cases.

Attorney Walker began his career as a Trial Attorney with the Allegheny County Office of Conflict Counsel, where he immediately established himself as a major force in the legal community by arguing the toughest cases before the District Magistrate Judges, The Court of Common Pleas, The Superior Court and The Supreme Court of Pennsylvania. Such cases included, but were not limited to

Clients continually choose Attorney Walker for representation due to his tireless work ethic and reputation for delivering “Real Talk, Real Experience and Real Results” on all of his cases, and he is quickly becoming one of the most sought after attorneys in Western Pa.

Attorney Walker earned his BS from West Virginia State College, MA from Marshall University and JD from West Virginia University.
