The American Society of Legal Advocates is pleased to announce that Troy Gaston of Greenwood, Arkansas, has been named to their 2013 Top 40 under 40 for litigation attorneys. Gaston began his legal career in 1999 with Husch Blackwell, LLC, in St. Louis, Missouri, where he gained valuable experience as an intern and associate attorney representing Fortune 500 companies in federal employment discrimination and product liability litigation. Bill Walters recruited Gaston in 2002 to join the Walters Law Firm in Greenwood and apply his skills to representing individuals. Gaston has worked in Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Missouri on matters including brain injuries, complex business torts, tractor-trailer accidents, oil and gas disputes, and wrongful death claims. Multiple cases have resulted in settlement or judgment over $1 million. Gaston has been particularly successful in litigating real estate condemnation matters. This success includes matters in which the condemning authority paid the client more than 10 times the amount tendered prior to representation and also reimbursed the client’s attorney fees and costs. Gaston was promoted to the position of Managing Partner with the firm in 2008. He prides himself on working closely with clients to prepare the best possible trial presentation and effectively research all potential legal issues prior to trial.
