Peter J. Markow Jr. and Christopher J. Walker were founding members of a firm that traces its beginnings back to 1984. The firm has experienced remarkable growth over the past thirty years, expanding from three lawyers to a litigation team that presently consists of approximately twenty-five lawyers and thirty staff members while obtaining a Martindale-Hubbell AV® Rating. Originally the firm focused its practice in the areas of oil and gas law, mass tort litigation, and general personal injury defense work with an emphasis on medical malpractice cases. In 1986, the firm expanded its practice to include workers’ compensation litigation and since that time, the firm’s workers’ compensation litigation team has become one of the largest in the State of Mississippi. Lawyers at Markow Walker presently handle a wide range of cases that involve medical malpractice, products liability, premises liability, automobile negligence, insurance litigation, mass tort litigation, construction disputes, workers compensation, employment law, nursing home litigation, bankruptcy litigation, corporate law, elder law, and environmental law.
From its beginning as a three-person law firm, the goal at Markow Walker has been to provide professional legal services that were both personal and specifically tailored to meet the unique needs of our clients. With that goal in mind, Markow Walker has expanded by hiring lawyers with not only similar philosophies concerning the servicing of clients but who are compatible both from individual personalities and ethical convictions. This has had the effect of developing a team approach to achieving the highest expertise in providing quality service to our clients. Although no longer one of the smaller firms in Mississippi, the lawyers at Markow Walker continue to strive to maintain that level of personal service despite the growth in its litigation team, areas of practice and client base.
