Walter G. Latimer

Partner

Mr. Latimer is a Partner and Trial Attorney in M&K’s Ft. Lauderdale office.  Mr. Latimer is a results-driven litigator, who has successfully tried numerous complex high-exposure cases to verdict in state and federal courts. His areas of experience include toxic tort, product liability, premises liability, construction, professional liability (medicine, accounting, law and design professionals), trucking and maritime matters, and claims involving catastrophic brain and other injuries, wrongful death, as well as insurance coverage claims. In addition to handling such matters in South Florida, he has an active practice in the U.S. Virgin Islands.
 
With over three decades of experience in a broad spectrum of high-exposure civil disputes, Mr. Latimer has an appreciation for the difference between simply litigating a case and preparing it for trial. He is well versed in the nuances of medical and scientific evidence, and has raised numerous successful Daubert and Frye challenges. His experience allows him access to preeminent experts in fields such as toxicology, neuropsychology, epidemiology, human factors, engineering, biomechanics, economics and most medical specialties. By keeping pace with emerging science, he also can quickly spot experts whose opinions cannot be supported.
 
Mr. Latimer graduated, cum laude, from Tulane University in 1979. He received his Juris Doctor, with Honors, from the University of Missouri in 1983.  He is admitted to the bars of Florida, Missouri, and the U.S. Virgin Islands, the U.S. District Courts for the Middle, Northern and Southern Districts of Florida, the Western District of Missouri, and the District of the Virgin Islands, and the United States Courts of Appeals for the Third, Eighth, and Eleventh Circuits.
