Walter Gewin – “About Me”

I am a family law attorney born and raised in Mobile, Alabama. I attended undergraduate school at the University of the South and the University of Alabama. After graduating from the University of Alabama in 2010 with a degree in business, I enrolled at Samford University at the Cumberland School of Law in Birmingham, AL.  

While at Cumberland School of Law, I participated in the legal fraternity Phi Alpha Delta and completed a legal externship with the Alabama Coalition Against Domestic Violence. Before law school, I interned one summer for a District Court Judge in Mobile and during law school interned following two summers for a Plaintiff’s firm in Mobile. After graduating from law school in 2013, I sat for the Alabama State Bar Exam and was admitted in 2013.

After being admitted to the Alabama State Bar in 2013, I worked as a law clerk for a Circuit Court Judge in Mobile for a year and a half assisting with both criminal and civil trials. Following my clerkship, I went out on my own and began practicing family law. I have represented juveniles in delinquency cases, parents in dependency cases, and defendants in both district court and circuit court criminal cases. Additionally, I have acted as an AOC certified Guardian Ad Litem in delinquency, dependency cases, and divorce cases. Also, I have taken on many different kinds of probate matters including guardianships, conservatorships, mental health commitments, name changes, and partial and final settlements.

I specialize in family law matters including child support, child custody cases, dependency, and divorce cases. I thoroughly enjoy working with families and their various needs and can potentially assist with guardianship, conservatorship, name changes, delinquency, drafting of wills, and criminal cases as well.
