Marion F. Walker ’72, an attorney of counsel with Fisher & Phillips LLP, was formally inducted into the Litigation Counsel of America at the LCA’s recent 2013 Spring Conference & Induction of Fellows.
Walker has practiced law in Birmingham, Ala., for 36 years. In that time, she has handled hundreds of cases and tried more than 85 to a verdict. While her practice now focuses on employment litigation defense, including whistle-blower actions defense, corporate and contractual litigation, Walker has handled a variety of cases in multiple jurisdictions.
She is admitted to practice before the U.S. Supreme Court, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th, 9th and 11th Circuits, and multiple district courts in Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, Florida and Alaska. Since 2004, Walker has been involved with e-discovery issues and policy concerns and written articles addressing some of these issues, as well as other matters arising from labor and employment litigation.
