What others have said about Hon. Mark E. Walker


Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: 22930
Mark Walker is everything you'd ever want in a judge. Unfailingly courteous, smart, engaged, with a nice sense of humor and a total lack of pretention. Judge Walker has had the unenviable task of taking over dockets from several other judges in the district, but has worked hard to clear up backlogs. He listens to legal arguments and treats all counsel with respect.
