"I am humbled and honored to have been selected to receive this award," said Judge Walker. "I am pleased that those, who come before me in court, whether they win or lose, know that they are treated fairly and their cases are handled expeditiously and professionally."

First elected to Clermont County Common Pleas Court in 1986, Judge Walker has served as Presiding and Administrative Judge for many of his years on the bench. He has been instrumental in establishing the intensive probation services, intensive sex offender supervision, non-support probation, pre-trial bond, and mental health programs within the Common Pleas Adult Probation Department.

Judge Walker instituted the court-wide civil mediation program, which promotes early resolution of cases. He has worked closely within the partnership of the Common Pleas Court, the Adult Probation Department, the Prosecutor's Office, and the Clermont County Child Support Enforcement Agency (CSEA) to develop and implement the County's non-support diversion program.
