David Sinclair Walker Jr.

also known as David S. Walker, Walker Law Firm

About me

I am one of the few native Atlantans and I'm Georgia guy, lived here most of my life, and attended the University of Georgia undergraduate and law school.


I started as a closing attorney out of law school. Because of the ups and downs of the real estate market, I branched into litigation and other areas. I have done criminal defense cases, serious injury cases, medical malpractice, divorce, bankruptcy, business litigation,  and small business and corporate. I have even set up a few pension and profit sharing plans back in the day. I became a certified mediator about 15 years ago.


These days I concentrate on divorce related cases, probate and estates, and wills and trusts. We still set up small corporations, write contracts, and do some injury cases and other types of litigation. There's a lot of information about cases we have handled over the years on our website.


I have some children of whom I'm very proud. One of my daughters is a biomedical engineer and patent agent in Atlanta and the other is a realtor in Dallas Texas. I have a stepdaughter who is training to be an EMT, and a stepson in the construction business. And my first grandson is on the way! When not involved with work or family, I enjoy golf, fishing, and snow skiing.
