Randy Walton is a Southern California native, and takes cases in all Southern California counties. His law practice is based in San Diego County, with his main office in North County, where he represents clients in a variety of personal injury and wrongful death cases, including motor vehicle accidents (car and motorcycle), work injuries, property injuries, and injuries to the brain. No matter the size of the case, or the magnitude of the harm, Mr. Walton believes strongly that those harmed by the negligence or carelessness of others deserve justice for their injuries. As a result, he has collected millions of dollars for personal injury victims and wrongful death heirs.

In support of his personal injury practice, Mr. Walton is a longstanding member of the Consumer Attorneys of San Diego and the Consumer Attorneys of California.

A portion of Mr. Walton's practice is also dedicated to the prosecution of nursing facilities, including nursing homes (skilled nursing facilities), residential care facilities, and assisted living facilities, including home health care, in cases involving the physical abuse and neglect of the elderly and dependent adults. The neglect and abuse of our elders (and dependent adults) is a growing concern in the United States, and Mr. Walton is dedicated to helping those who have been victimized by neglect or abuse. Mr. Walton is member of the National Consumer Voice for Quality Long-Term Care.

Mr. Walton is also a certified mediator, certified by the National Conflict Resolution Center.

Mr. Walton also dedicates a significant amount of time to his community, which he believes is important. He served for four years as an elected member of the San Marcos City Council, and for 10 years previous to that he served as a member of the Governing Board of the San Marcos Unified School District, a school district that serves over 20,000 students. 

He also is a founder of Project Next, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping high school students navigate a life beyond high school, whether to college or career. He is a 2010 graduate of Leadership North County, a program provided by California State University San Marcos, and has been active in local youth sports for many years. He coached the San Marcos High surf team to three state titles. In his free time, Mr. Walton enjoys surfing, hiking, and spending time with his family.

Mr. Walton is AV Preeminent rated by Martindale-Hubbell, a confidential peer-review rating that recognizes lawyers for their strong legal ability and high ethical standards. And for 11 consecutive years, from 2014 to 2024, Mr. Walton has been selected by members of the legal community for inclusion into the annual "Super Lawyers" magazine for his work in personal injury law. He maintains a 10 rating in the Avvo legal directory.
