Mike Walker is Board Certified in Civil Trial Law by both The Florida Bar and the National Board of Trial Advocacy. Less than 2% of Florida lawyers hold this distinction. Board certification is a shorthand way of saying that a lawyer is experienced and has demonstrated a high level of achievement in his area of certification. Mike is proud of having attained this status as it demonstrates that he has been through many battles; that he has and will fight for his clients. He is recognized as a member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum, as a Fellow with the College of Barristers, as a Super Lawyer by Super Lawyers, as a Legal Elite by Florida Trend Magazine, as Tampa Bay’s Top Lawyer by Tampa Bay Magazine, as a Tampa’s Top Lawyer from the National Law Journal and holds an AV preeminent designation with Martindale-Hubbell.
Mike Walker is also proud to represent the hard-working people who are his clients. He grew up in a small town in the Midwest. He watched as his family and friends, mostly farmers and factory workers, never seemed to have access to the legal system. They were the ones who always seemed to be taken advantage of by the big businesses, banks, and insurance companies of the world. It gives him great satisfaction to stand up and fight for these same people each and every day.
