prosecuted cases for 27 years.
Judge Virgil Walker vividly recalled prosecuting one of the
first and largest identity theft cases ever brought. The fraud
involved a scheme in which perpetrators created (and cashed)
counterfeit payroll checks. This fraud went undetected by large,
reputable employers for years but ultimately resulted in 32
defendants being indicted. Judge Walker is clearly proud of his
accomplishments as an Assistant United States Attorney.
For those concerned with Judge Walker's background trying
cases in Philadelphia, he is quick to point out his Montgomery
County pride. Judge Walker has resided in Upper Dublin
Township since 1991 and he is a long-standing member of
Salem Baptist Church in Roslyn. He is extremely grateful that
his fellow members of the Bench have been generous with their
time and wisdom. "Every judge's door has been open to me"
was his comment as he talked about his transition from litigator
to jurist.
Judge Walker is a member of the Judicial Branch of the
Barristers, a member of the MBA Bench Bar Committee and

a member of Phi Beta Sigma, a community service-focused
fraternal organization. Many members of the MBA may already
know Judge Walker as an accomplished professional musician, a
side gig that he still enjoys.
When asked if he had any advice to practitioner who might
be appearing in his courtroom, Judge Walker commented
that despite his relatively short time on the bench, he has seen
and heard an increased willingness of counsel to engage in
shouting matches in the courtroom. He believes that it is largely
grandstanding or showmanship for the benefit of the litigants.
Judge Walker warned that adversarial conditions should not
impact decorum. Conduct that is disrespectful to the Court as a
whole will not be tolerated.
Welcome Judge Virgil Walker to the Montgomery County
Bench!
EDITORS' NOTE: THE HONORABLE MELISSA S. STERLING
WILL BE PROFILED IN OUR NEXT ISSUE.
