The attorneys at Walker Law understand that personal injury is more than just physical; it also affects the psychological health and everyday life of both the victim and their loved ones.

While we are located in South Carolina, we represent clients from across the country in all manners of personal injury, including burns, brain injuries, catastrophic motor vehicle injuries such as amputations and partial paralysis, and death.

We are dedicated to helping everyday tax-payers from being taken advantage of by the government, insurance companies, and big corporations who do not have the victim’s best interest at heart.

Billy Walker

Billy Walker

Since 1973, Billy Walker has represented clients in all phases of complex personal injury litigation, becoming one of South Carolina’s top-rated personal injury attorneys.

Specializing in burn trauma resulting from explosions of natural gas, propane, and gasoline, and scald burns from excessively hot water, Walker is passionate about rectifying the devastation these events have on the victim’s everyday life.

Over the years, Walker has worked tirelessly to provide his clients with the attention and care their cases deserve while protecting their rights and getting just compensation for their suffering.

Dedicated to serving his community both professionally and personally, Walker has acted as the President of the Lexington Economic Development Association for over ten years. In 2001, he was elected to serve as the Chairman of the Board of Trustees for Newberry College, his alma mater.

In 2009, he earned the distinct honor of receiving the Southern Trial Lawyers Association’s “Tommy Malone Great American Eagle Award,” recognizing Walker as “an individual who has a calling to help others and is a powerful example of the bold pursuit of excellence and justice.”

Paul John Coyle

Paul John Coyle

Paul John Coyle has always had a clear vision of what he wanted for his life, but it wasn’t until he was attending the University of South Carolina for undergrad that he discovered the path that would make it a reality.

While in school, he began exploring career opportunities that would fulfill his goals of garnering his community’s respect while also providing for his family and helping people. After meeting with a handful of attorneys, he decided that law was something he wanted to pursue. Through his first year of law school and his first clerkship, Coyle discovered that law—specifically personal injury litigation—not only fulfilled his career goals but was also a rewarding and satisfying endeavor.

Having clerked for Walker Law (then Walker Morgan) during his final year of law school at the University of South Carolina, Coyle accepted an associate position with the firm after graduating and passing the Bar Exam. The decision to continue working with the firm was an easy one, as the people at Walker Law had become family in the early days of Coyle's clerkship.

Coyle looks forward to learning from the years of experience between Billy Walker and the paralegals and contributing to the dedication, professionalism, and work ethic on which the firm has built its reputation.

While raised in Summerville, S.C., Coyle has spent the past seven years as a proud member of the Gamecocks family and now considers Columbia home. He hopes to find success as a young attorney while giving back to the Midlands and providing the community with the legal aid they deserve.
