After many years of practicing law with a large prestigious firm, Trip Walton decided to build his own firm around a core of attorneys with superior trial skills, who would share the same goal of standing up and fighting for the rights of those who cannot fight for themselves. Trip is a former Golden Gloves Heavyweight Boxing Champion. The values of a fighter are honor, dignity, pride and sportsmanship. Trip learned that aggressive hard work, persistence and diligence pay off – in the boxing ring and in the courtroom. Let Walton Law Firm fight for you!

Trip has a well-earned reputation in the Personal Injury, Tractor Trailer Collision, Traumatic Brain Injury and Mediation arena. Trip is highly regarded in these areas of practice and has been asked to speak at various professional conferences across the country. Trip has tirelessly fought, standing up to the big insurance companies, winning multi-million and million dollar settlements for his clients.

Trip also has established a practice of defending those accused of Title IX offenses which typically involve sexual and gender-based misconduct.  Because the standard of proof in these cases is less than “beyond a reasonable doubt” (i.e. more likely than not), these cases are very difficult to defend and require a lot of time and experience.  Trip also defends students accused of violating Auburn University’s Code of Student Conduct.

While in college and law school, he enjoyed a successful amateur heavyweight boxing career with a 20-1 record. As an amateur heavyweight fighter, he was known for his knockout punch with 18 first round knockout victories. His record includes the Auburn University and Southeastern Regional Intercollegiate Titles in 1978; a win in the Georgia Golden Gloves Tournament in 1980; the Alabama AAU Open-Class Heavyweight Championship in 1981; and he concluded his boxing career in 1982 by winning the Alabama Golden Gloves Heavyweight Championship.

Trip is an Eagle Scout and was a member of the Auburn University Football Team and the Auburn University Debate Team. He is a member of Phi Delta Phi legal fraternity and Kappa Alpha Order.

Before founding Walton Law Firm in 2001, Trip served as a Deputy District Attorney in Montgomery County, AL where he prosecuted numerous felony cases including capital murder, murder, rape, robbery, dealing of marijuana, dealing of cocaine, trafficking of illegal drugs, arson, and other felony type offenses. Trip left the DA’s office in Montgomery and began his private practice with Harper and Meadows Law Firm in Auburn, Alabama. Senior partner Bobby Harper became a circuit judge in Lee County and thereafter Trip and Bob Meadows joined forces with Walker, Hill, Adams, Umbach, Meadows and Walton. While a partner with the Walker-Hill firm, in Opelika/Auburn, Trip handled the City prosecution duties for the City of Auburn, for approximately five (5) years. He also built his personal injury/wrongful death practice while a partner at the Walker-Hill firm.
