Trial lawyers Reid WM. Martin, John F. (Jack) Walker III, and Marisa Allen have each been recognized in the 2022 issue of The Best Lawyers in America, considered the oldest and one of the most respected legal guides in the U.S.

Mr. Walker and Mrs. Allen were chosen for their experience representing individuals in personal injury and wrongful death litigation. Mr. Martin was honored for his work representing plaintiffs in medical malpractice lawsuits. Mr. Martin and Mr. Walker, who founded the firm in 2006, are Board Certified in Personal Injury Trial Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. Mrs. Allen is Board Certified in Civil Appellate Law.

“It’s been a challenging year for everyone,” said Mr. Martin. “But I believe that, as a firm, we’ve come together, doubled our efforts, and done some of our best work. Being recognized for that is really tremendous.”

Martin Walker PC has received numerous honors for its work over the years. In addition to Best Lawyers, Mr. Martin and Mr. Walker have each been included on Thomson Reuters’ annual list of Texas Super Lawyers and in the list of 500 Leading Plaintiff Consumer Lawyers. The firm was also inducted into the Verdicts Hall of Fame by Texas Lawyer magazine for winning a $43.32 million judgment against East Texas Medical Center in 2018, the largest medical malpractice verdict in the state for that year.

“We take this recognition very seriously,” said Mr. Walker. “For us, it’s a constant reminder to do more, to go a little further, and work harder for those we represent.”
