H. Reed Walker

Attorney in Overland Park, KS

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.

Goals

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

    About Client Rating
    About Peer Rating

    Welcome to Martindale-Hubbell® Client Review, a new ratings service that allows you to view and provide feedback on a lawyer or law firm on service and relationship qualities such as Communication Ability, Responsiveness, Quality of Service, and Value for Money.

    Determining a Rating

    The Client Review Rating is determined through aggregation of validated responses. This compilation of Client Reviews translates to a numerical rating and associate descriptive term on a scale of 1 -5. 1 being lowest as "Rated" and 5 being highest as "Preeminent".

    • 4.5-5.0 Preeminent
    • 3.0-4.4 Distinguished
    • 1-2.9 Rated

    Martindale-Hubbell uses a third-party resource to validate that the respondent is a living person, but cannot confirm the lawyer/client relationship, which in many cases is confidential. Clients must affirm that they are a client of the lawyer or firm identified for review at the time of the completed Client Review.

    The Reviewers

    Those who complete Client Reviews are clients of law firms who hired a lawyer within the last year, whose matter is not pending, and want to share their experience of that lawyer or law firm with other potential clients. Reviewers can be of any type from in-house counsel, corporate executives, small business owners to private individuals, and even sometimes another lawyer in a different jurisdiction.

    Anonymity

    Client Reviews are anonymous and reviewers' identities are not published; however a summary of basic demographics will be part of the display of responses.

    Why do we collect demographics as part of the review?

    Those who are researching a lawyer or law firm like to see that there are other clients who might be "like them". This is valuable information contributing to the decision-making process of hiring a lawyer.

    Martindale-Hubbell's role

    Martindale-Hubbell facilitates the process of Client Review by gathering responses, validating them and aggregating results for display online. The content of the responses are entirely from reviewers, the clients of the firm or lawyer.

    It is important to note that Martindale-Hubbell does not undertake to develop Client Reviews for all firms and lawyers. Therefore, the fact that a firm or lawyer has not been reviewed should not be construed unfavorably. Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome and Martindale-Hubbell accepts no responsibility for the content or accuracy of any review over which Martindale-Hubbell exercises no editorial review or control.
