Mr. Walter has been a litigation attorney since 1996. Prior to law school, he obtained his Bachelor of Arts degree in History from the University of Baltimore; thereafter, he received a Masters in Government and Public Administration from the University of Baltimore. In 1995, Mr. Walter earned his Juris Doctor from the Thomas M. Cooley Law School in Lansing, Michigan. He was awarded the American Jurisprudence Award in Scholarly Writing and served with distinction as a Senior Associate Editor of the Thomas M. Cooley Law Review. Mr. Walter was honored to have Rutgers Law School use his Law Review Case Note as supplemental reading for its first-year law students.

Mr. Walter is openly passionate about his affinity for the courtroom. He says, “there is something intoxicating about trial work—researching complex legal issues and presenting logical resolutions to Judges and juries, and, of course, winning, is indescribable.”

His main office is located on Lawyers Row in Centreville, Maryland (he also has a satellite office located in Easton). Mr. Walter’s law firm does business as Eastern Shore Legal®. The office is unmistakably busy—phones ringing, faxes coming in and people in and out.

“Being a trial lawyer is rewarding on so many levels: the intellectual gymnastics, the interaction with the community and the competitive nature of litigation; marathon runners call it a ‘runner’s high’—for me, being in court is very similar, I always want to run longer, harder, faster, and more competitively.

“I take my job very seriously; I don’t care if it’s a traffic ticket, medical malpractice, DWI or a serious auto accident case—I treat each case with the utmost due diligence. I encourage people to call our office for a free consultation at 1-866-ESL-2662, or submit a legal question online at I look forward to hearing from you.”
