Integrity and professional excellence have earned Troy E. Walton the notice of fellow attorneys.
Walton has received the prestigious AV preeminent recognition of Martindale Hubbell. This excellence rating, which recognizes Walton’s high ethical standards and exceptional legal abilities, is bestowed on less than 5 percent of attorneys nationwide.
“It is especially gratifying when recognition like this comes from your peers who also work hard every day to do the very best for their clients,” Walton said.
An AV preeminent rating is the highest achievement offered through the Martindale Hubbell Peer Review Ratings. Walton is listed in the Martindale Hubbell Law Directory, which connects attorneys across the country. Walton’s law partner, Paul Schoen, congratulated Walton for his ability and integrity.
“The award of this rating by Martindale-Hubbell is truly an accomplishment by Troy for which he can be justifiably proud,” Schoen said.
This rating by fellow attorneys acknowledges Walton’s ability and determination to win cases for his injured clients. One such case included a $7 million settlement Walton secured on behalf of a local woman who was seriously burned, and whose husband was killed, in a fire caused by a defective refrigerator.
Walton is also an inductee in the Million Dollar Advocate’s Forum, which includes many of the nation’s top trial lawyers.
Walton practices law in Illinois and Missouri and has tried cases in both states. He frequently lectures on personal injury litigation and civil trial techniques.
Walton resides in Glen Carbon with his wife, Anne, and their two daughters, Nora and Caroline. He is the treasurer of the Madison County Bar Association, an Edwardsville Township Democratic Precinct Committeeman and is the immediate past President of the Edwardsville Democratic Club.
