    “I've known Tom Walker for years and have enjoyed working with him on behalf of clients pursuing employment law claims. He is a skilled advocate for his clients, employing creative and strategic methods of achieving his clients' goals. He is remarkably personable, and his clients tend to acknowledge him as a trusted personal advisor as well as their plaintiff’s lawyer. He’s a smart guy, that cares.”

  • Steven Paul Cohn

    I endorse this lawyer. I met Mr. Walker as an opposing counsel in a very difficult and emotionally charged firing case, where the parties had been former long term colleagues. I found Mr. Walker's preparation and presentation of the case to be superior. He was well informed, prepared and guided his client expertly to a favorable resolution that, without him, would clearly not have been the result. Mr. Walker was aggressive, yet personable and able to allow his client to compromise only when in his client's best interest to do so. This permitted the case to be moved into early settlement, before the parties were heavily invested in litigation. Tom Walker put his client first, evaluated and handled the case with expertise, and I acknowledge and recommend this professional's excellent abilities.
