The Boxing Ring and The Law

Trip Walton Fights His Way to the Top

Trip Walton leans back comfortable on a tufted, leather loveseat in the nook of his office. His right hand holds a 20-ounce Styrofoam cup of black coffee, and reading glasses rest on top of his head, of which he jokes he needs sunblock to lessen the glare of the ceiling lights. It’s 5:45 p.m., and Trip is still in the midst of his work day, with a typical one ending around 7:30 or 8:00 p.m.

Since graduation law school in 1984, Trip has worked real estate cases to personal injury cases, eventually splitting from one law firm in 2001 to start his own, Walton Law Firm P.C., in Auburn. Walton Law concentrates on personal injury cases involving auto accidents, wrongful death, workers compensation, among others, and they also take some criminal defense cases.



Mediation (The Winning Approach)

Many lawyers believe that an opening statement/presentation at mediation is a waste of time because you are speaking to and dealing with hard line defense attorneys, insurance adjusters and trucking company defendants – not a jury. Some attorneys mistakenly believe that the mediator will speak for their client – not true. Remember the room is full of people and most of them do not have your client’s best interest at heart. So what are you going to do – nothing? I hope not! If you do not speak for your injured client, who will? In other words if your client cannot count on you, who can she/he count on? The defense counsel, the insurance adjusters, the corporate trucking defendant or the defendant driver who changed your client’s life forever? I don’t think so!
