Christine M. Walker was in the courtroom, reaching for her jacket when she collapsed on the floor. Her colleagues knew she was a “klutz,” but that moment was actually an early warning of the severe effects of a syndrome that would leave her paralyzed.
Walker, a partner at Fowler White Burnett in Miami, who focuses her practice on maritime law, had no intention of going to court that day. A judge had a list of the cases he would call that week, and Walker’s was listed near the end, unlikely to be called for trial unless several cases before her were “eliminated.” Despite the short-term notice, Walker would be victorious at trial.
