Over 30 years of courtroom experience in family law and other civil litigation. Recently reappointed pro tem judge, Johnson County District Court.

While ours is a general practice firm, we handle primarily civil litigation. We litigate, that is prepare and go to trial upon, if necessary, family law cases including divorce or dissolution of marriage; custody; child support; child visitation; guardian and conservatorships; wills, trusts, probate and estates; and juvenile court matters. We also litigate personal injury and commercial claims, including both bench (judge only) and jury trials.

We are "of counsel" with Robert A. Kumin, P.C., which means we consult with and handle primarily civil litigation matters for this firm and its members.

Mr. Walker, our senior attorney, began practicing law in l977. He graduated with Dean's Honors from Washburn University Law School in Topeka, Kansas. While a law student, he served on the Board of Editors of the Washburn Law Journal, and since graduation has served as an editor of state and local bar publications. He is currently a member of the Kansas Association for Justice and Kansas and Missouri Bar Associations. He has served as the president of the litigation section of the Kansas Bar Association; on the Board of Governors of the Kansas Trial Lawyers Association; and as president of the county bar association and chairman and current member of its grievance and ethics committee. He is a past president of the county bar foundation, the mission of which is charitable law-related, community-oriented causes. He is counsel of record in cases published by the Kansas appellate courts. He is the city attorney for the city of Edwardsville, Kansas.

Mr. Walker is licensed to practice in the state (which includes municipal, district, and circuit) and federal courts of Kansas and Missouri; the federal 8th and 10th Circuit Courts of Appeal; and the United States Supreme Court. A significant portion of his time is spent litigating cases in court.

Other staff members, including paralegals (non-lawyers who are specially trained in the law and legal procedure), will talk with you, write you, answer questions, and help you understand the legal process, gather information and prepare cases for settlement or trial.

Achievements

In addition to successfully concluding thousands of family law cases in courts throughout the greater Kansas city area, we have collected well over one million dollars in personal injury settlements for our clients.

Goals

Our goal is to meet our clients' needs and exceed their expectations by being available to help them in times of crisis.
