EDWARDSVILLE – The law firm of Walton Telken Foster says its attorneys have been recognized by their peers as leading lawyers in personal injury litigation.
“We are proud to learn that our peers have selected us as leading and emerging lawyers,” said partner Troy E. Walton. “I believe we are the only personal injury firm in Madison County in which all attorneys in the firm have received this honor,” he said.
The distinction of being a Leading Lawyer has been earned by fewer than five percent of all lawyers licensed in Illinois. Receiving this recognition are Troy E. Walton, Stephen J. Telken, and Ronald J. Foster, Jr.
Micah Summers has been named an Emerging Lawyer. This distinction has been earned by fewer than two percent of all lawyers licensed in Illinois. It is an honor given to attorneys 40 years old or younger.
This summer, injury attorney Ronald J. Foster Jr. recovered more than $500,000 in Workers’ Compensation benefits for two men seriously injured in a Missouri mining accident. The two men were seriously injured in a 25-foot fall at Doe Run Brushy Creek lead mine in Reynolds County, MO.
Also this year, attorneys Troy E. Walton and Stephen J. Telken recovered more than $1 million from a South Carolina-based trucking company and J.B. Hunt Transport Inc. for a Staunton resident severely injured in a tractor-trailer crash on Interstate 270 near Edwardsville.
