SUBMITTED NEWS RELEASE

CARSON CITY–At a press conference this afternoon, Gov. Brian Sandoval announced he has appointed Egan Walker as a 2nd Judicial District family court judge.

“I am confident that Egan Walker’s time spent prosecuting cases, working as a nurse and combat medic and dedicating his talent to pro bono work will provide him with the necessary foundation to be an effective family court judge,” Governor Sandoval said. “His long and established career illustrates his profound respect for the rule of law.”

Currently a court master with the 2nd Judicial District Court, he presides over child support enforcement calendars, dedicated adult guardianship calendars and the self-represented litigant. He helped develop the procedures by which self-representation cases are adjudicated.

Egan Walker has been a deputy district attorney in the Carson City District Attorney’s office and the Washoe County District Attorney’s office. From 2000-2001 Walker practiced law under his own name, and in 2002 he partnered with Philip Kreitlein, where Walker’s focus was on personal injury, family law, wrongful death, contract disputes and criminal defense.

Walker has also been a pro tem judge in Sparks Municipal Court, where he presided over 125 individual court sessions.

Prior to his law career, Walker worked as a licensed nurse from 1986 to 1992. From 1981 to 1990, he worked as a combat medic, flight medic and nurse in the California and Nevada Army National Guard, as well as the United States Army Reserve. Walker holds a Bachelor of Science degree in nursing and a J.D. from the McGeorge School of Law. He has six children.
