About Us

Robert D. Walker, Jr. established our firm in 1985 with a handful of insurance and commercial clients. Over the years, Walker Allen has grown to be one of the premier law firms in North Carolina and South Carolina with offices in Goldsboro, Raleigh, Greensboro, Charlotte, and Mount Pleasant-Charleston. The firm takes pride in its reputation as a firm of trial lawyers with a reputation for thorough preparation and successful courtroom results.

Walker Allen concentrates in civil litigation with two distinct practice areas. The general liability defense section of our practice is wide-ranging and includes automobile liability defense, commercial general liability defense, construction negligence defense, and insurance coverage litigation. The professional negligence section of our practice defends medical malpractice, nursing home negligence, and other professional negligence.

We believe it is important that companies, and individuals they insure, have high quality representation by attorneys with an understanding of their local communities. We have tried cases to verdict in many counties throughout North and South Carolina. We enjoy a cooperative working relationship with the judges and courthouse personnel, and we have prevailed with much success with juries in the Carolinas.

Walker Allen is proud to provide representation for a number of large insurance companies and their insureds, including Curi Insurance Company (formerly known as Medical Mutual Insurance Company of North Carolina), MagMutual, State Farm, Farm Bureau, Progressive, Nationwide, Geico, Allstate, Travelers, Sentry, Atlantic Casualty, Auto Owners, and National General. We also represent a number of self-insured hospitals and independent health care providers.
