Michael "Mike" Walker focuses his law practice on representing individuals who have been wronged by the negligent acts of others. He is a zealous and devoted advocate for his client's interests and rights. Going up against powerful businesses and insurance companies, Mike has recovered millions for his clients. He has been recognized as a "Top 40 under 40" trial lawyer by the National Trial Lawyers and a "Rising Star" by Super Lawyers magazine, an award given to only 2.5% of attorneys in Georgia.

Mike graduated from Vanderbilt University Law School, where he was a member of the Order of the Coif, an honor for graduates in the top 10% of their classes. Following law school, Mike clerked for the Honorable W. Louis Sands in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Georgia.
