Firm Overview

If you or a loved one has been hurt at work, injured in a car crash or bitten by a dog then you may be confused or worried about what to do next. Our injury attorneys have written injury books which will tell you how to avoid common costly mistakes, explain your rights and even help you decide if you need an attorney and how to find the best one for you and your case. That is right, you may not need an attorney and we may not be the best attorneys for your case. You decide. Our injury attorneys offer their books at no cost because they have seen far too many clients make avoidable mistakes which cost them thousand of dollars.

Corey Walker

Our firm was established by Lee M. Walker in 1975.

At age 14, I began working for my grandfather in the concrete construction business during the summer school break. The work was hard, hot, and long, but provided me with framework for my character. My grandfather always told me to get a good education so I did not have to do hard labor for the rest of my life. I graduated from Newton High school in 1990 and played on the 1988 state 4A runner-up football team. After I graduated from high school, my mother purchased an appliance store and I began working on weekends and during the summer delivering refrigerators, washers, dryers and other heavy equipment. I would also help my grandfather when he needed extra help on job sites. I graduated from Central College in Pella in 1994 and then went onto law school at Drake in Des Moines. After my first year of law school in 1995, I began working at Walker & Billingsley (now Walker, Billingsley & Bair). Since 1997, I have been an attorney representing Iowans injured in personal injury (car, truck and motorcycle accidents, dog bites, etc.) and workers' compensation (work injury) cases. If you want a divorce or have a traffic ticket, I won't handle your case, but I can refer you to another attorney at our office that will. I worked my way through college and then through law school and am dedicated to helping Injured Iowans. With hard work and personal attention I help Level the Field between Injured Iowans and Insurance CompaniesTM

We direct the work to the person who handles the specific work. For example, we have one employee whose full-time job is to request and organize medical records in each case.
