Meet our Attorneys: Brian Walker, an attorney who provides legal counsel and advice
April 22, 2015
At Ball Eggleston, we pride ourselves on the caliber of attorneys we attract to our firm. We all come from different backgrounds and experiences, but work together to form a team that is ready to help solve your legal questions. This post is part of an ongoing series, Meet our Attorneys, so that you can get to know the men and women who work tirelessly to give back to the Lafayette community we know and love so well. Each attorney took some time out of their busy schedule to sit down for an interview and share their story.
Today’s attorney focus is on Mr. Brian Walker
Brian Walker was first introduced to the Lafayette community when he attended Purdue University as an undergraduate. He went on to law school at Indiana University before eventually returning to make Lafayette his permanent home. He joined our firm in 1986 after spending two years working at a law office in Indianapolis.
While in Indianapolis, Mr. Walker gained experience working personal injury cases and brought that knowledge with him to Ball Eggleston. He has since developed a reputation in the community for his work with personal injury and family law. He has built up his practice by being fair and honest in offering sound counsel and advice.
Mr. Walker currently focuses on these areas of law:
- Personal Injury
- Family Law
Additionally, Mr. Walker has remained active in the community through his involvement with the Boys’ and Girls’ Club, and coaching various sports teams.
Why did you become an attorney?
Mr. Walker became an attorney because he wanted to help people and enjoyed the flexibility of his work. He shared that becoming an attorney gave him an opportunity to have a healthy work-life balance by maintaining a certain flexibility in his time spent at home with his family and the office.
He credits his first position in Indianapolis as introducing him to personal injury. He explained that the office he worked in was one of the first in the state to begin advertising and successfully marketing their personal injury practice. That gave Mr. Walker the unique opportunity to take on many different personal injury cases immediately out of law school.
However, he left Indianapolis after two years because he was looking for a smaller, engaged community and made the move back to Lafayette, Indiana with his family. He joined Ball Eggleston and has enjoyed a successful career with our firm. His practice primarily works in personal injury and family law.
Attorneys are considered counselors of law, and Mr. Walker takes his role seriously by making an intentional effort to provide counsel and advice and not just focus on the law or wanted result. An attorney’s main role is to help people and guide them through the legal proceedings to achieve their wanted end result. By taking some time to communicate and discuss a client’s current situation, Mr. Walker is able to help them navigate a difficult situation and offer them sound insight and advice. He shared that many clients know what end result they would like to see, but don’t know the legal process and the appropriate steps to take. He enjoys helping them through a difficult situation in order to reach a desired outcome.
