Personal injury attorneys Troy Walton, Steve Telken and Ron Foster announced that the new name of their firm is Walton Telken Foster LLC.
The Edwardsville firm has been representing plaintiffs in personal injury suits in Illinois and Missouri since 2009.
Original member, Paul Schoen, recently left the firm and will operate his own law firm in Belleville.
“Paul is our friend and we wish him well,” Telken stated.
In addition to Walton, Telken and Foster, attorneys Micah Summers and Michael Marker are also with the firm.
“A significant portion of our business comes from word-of-mouth recommendations from current and former clients, as well as other attorneys who often refer us their most complex injury cases. Our clients, and other attorneys, know that we have the knowledge and experience to successfully handle their cases,” Walton stated.
The firm has handled cases involving product liability, trucking and auto accident cases, medical malpractice, premises liability, workers’ compensation and other types of personal injury cases.
Additionally, the firm manages and handles complex mass torts cases, such as cancer cases from radiation exposure near Coldwater Creek in St. Louis County and Syngenta corn cases on behalf of Illinois farmers, among others.
“We are excited about the evolution and future of Walton Telken Foster, LLC. We are proud of the legal representation we have provided, and the compensation we have recovered, for our clients over the years. This firm is comprised of a dynamic and aggressive group of lawyers who will continue to work hard on behalf of those injured or killed by the negligence or recklessness of others,” Telken stated.
