Troy E. Walton



Attorney Troy Walton leverages his working-class roots and family values to bring favorable results to his clients facing personal injury litigation. A native of Central Illinois, and the youngest son of hard-working parents, Troy personally experienced the difficulty navigating a catastrophic illness when at age 12, his father passed away after a lengthy battle with lung cancer. Troy made good on his promise to his father and enrolled at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign where he received his Bachelor of Arts in History. After graduation, Troy attended St. Louis University School of Law and graduated cum laude in 2000.

After law school, Troy handled real estate and construction litigation matters for large corporations and insurance companies. In 2001, he left corporate America behind and returned to his roots by accepting an associate position with renowned plaintiff’s personal injury firm – the Rex Carr Law Firm. While at Rex Carr, Troy honed his trial advocacy by representing individuals and families in a wide array of personal injury cases ranging from catastrophic injury to wrongful death. 

In January 2009, Troy co-founded Walton Telken, LLC where he continues to focus his practice exclusively on plaintiff’s personal injury litigation including trucking and motor vehicle accidents, products liability claims, medical malpractice, nursing home abuse and neglect cases, class actions, complex civil litigation, and all claims involving serious personal injury or wrongful death.

In his two decades of practice, Troy has successfully resolved several plaintiff’s personal injury cases resulting in significant recoveries to his clients. Such cases include a $7 million wrongful death and product liability settlement caused by a defective refrigerator; a significant settlement for a truck driver who was struck by an uninsured motorist; and a substantial settlement for a five-year-old boy who sustained second and third degree burns to over 20% of his body as a result of a defective shirt. Troy’s compassionate client advocacy has also resulted in major successes against powerful entities such as the U.S. Army and the Illinois State Troopers. In recognition of these results and others, Troy was inducted into the Million Dollar Advocate’s Forum – an organization whose members include many of the top trial lawyers in the United States.

Troy’s hobbies outside of the courtroom include spending time with his family, playing golf with friends, traveling and cheering on his favorite teams – the St. Louis Cardinals and Dallas Cowboys.
