Retired Judge Walter F. Williams has been placed on disability inactive status with the Tennessee Supreme Court. Judge Williams is a partner at Chattanooga-based law firm McKoon, Williams & Hegeman.
Judge Williams suffered a stroke on Christmas Day in 2014, and has been undergoing extensive rehabilitative therapy. He has also had torn rotator cuff repair. Although he’s doing well, the use of his predominant hand for writing and his speech remain in recovery; therefore, Judge Williams has made the decision to transfer to disability inactive status. Should his recovery permit him to once again practice law, he will request reinstatement by the Tennessee Supreme Court.
Judge Williams’ files will continue to be handled by his firm. Moreover, Judge Williams is asking his clients work with his associates at McKoon, Williams & Hegeman. The firm has attorneys practicing in a wide variety of legal fields who will be able to assist them.
This message has been prepared by the law firm of McKoon, Williams & Hegeman, located at 633 Chestnut St., Ste. 1300, Chattanooga, Tenn., 37450, and which takes responsibility for this message pursuant to Rule 7.2 of the Rules of Professional Conduct of the Supreme Court of Tennessee.
