About me

Michael L. Walker is Board Certified in Civil Trial Law by both The Florida Bar and the National Board of Trial Advocacy. Less than 2% of Florida lawyers are Board Certified. Board certification is a short hand way of saying that a lawyer is experienced and has demonstrated a high level of achievement in his area of certification. Michael L. Walker is proud of having attained this status as it demonstrates that he has been through many battles; that he has and will fight for his clients. He is recognized as a member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum, as a Fellow with the College of Barristers, as a Super Lawyer by Super Lawyers, as a Legal Elite by Florida Trend Magazine, as tampa bays top lawyers by Tampa Bay Magazine, and holds an AV Distinguished designation with Martindale-Hubbell.


Michael L. Walker is also proud to represent the hard working individuals who are his clients. He grew up in a small town in the Midwest. He watched as his family and friends, mostly farmers and factory workers, never seemed to have access to the legal system. They were the ones who always seemed to be taken advantage of by the big businesses, banks and insurance companies of the world. It gives him great satisfaction to stand up and fight for these same people each and every day.


Michael L. Walker, takes a straight forward approach to representing his clients. He will do all the things we can do to enhance a client's case - to put it in the best light possible. He will do what's best for each individual client. He knows that clients are looking to him for advice. It gives him comfort to be able to tell a client that he has been in similar situations literally thousands of times before. His experience is invaluable, and he is happy to use it to each client's advantage.


With his experience, he is in a better position to educate his clients educating means talking to his clients, informing them, taking time to explain. This is part of the service a lawyer should provide. An informed client makes better decisions and is more often satisfied. Client satisfaction is the ultimate goal.
