Walter Williamson

Of Counsel

Walter Williamson, who joined White Fleischner & Fino in 2006, was a medical doctor before becoming a successful trial and appellate lawyer in both state and federal courts. As such, Walter brings an unusual and invaluable combination of medical and scientific education and training, and several decades of litigation experience, to cases involving contested medical and technical expert opinion.

Walter is a published author and has lectured widely to both lawyers and insurance claims personnel on a variety of legal subjects, including New York's Labor Law and medico-legal subjects including injury causation evaluation. He is a member of the board of directors of The Defense Association of New York.
