Juan Palerm

Associate Attorney

Juan is a native Floridian and Air Force “brat.” He has lived in Panama, California, Arizona, Oklahoma, Japan, and the Czech Republic. All that travelling as a kid keeps his enthusiasm for exploring the world ever present. Juan didn’t start his career as a lawyer but in the food and beverage industry. He has managed many restaurants and finished his career as an executive chef. Juan decided to go back to school and get his law degree at the age of 44. While Juan is a “young” lawyer, he has the wisdom and experience of life that helps guide him as he takes care of every legal matter with the same care he takes in making a fine dining dish.

Juan began his law career in Jacksonville in personal injury law. Life took him to the Treasure Coast and he joined the Department of Children and Families, Children’s Legal Services as a Dependency Litigator. Juan spent 2 years advocating for the children of Florida, never losing a trial as first or second chair. His dedication and professionalism has garnered him all around praise from his colleagues in the entire dependency system in St. Lucie, Martin, and Okeechobee counties. His relentless pursuit of fairness and objectivity in the courtroom is just another positive aspect of Juan’s professional and personal demeanor.

Juan joined the Law Offices of Travis R. Walker, P.A. on June 29, 2022 and expects to make the same impact for the clients of the firm as he did for the kids of Florida. Juan’s practice will primarily be in the area of Tax Deeds, but he has the competence and flexibility to assist in other practice areas as needed.

Juan enjoys the outdoors, and his activities include paddleboard surfing, longboard skateboarding, diving, inline skating, hiking, fishing, kayaking, wildlife watching, and any other activity that comes his way. He also loves cooking, as one might guess. Juan has 5 cats and a dog. Juan loves sports, especially when the World Cup comes around. Juan lives on the Indian River with his wife and the furry kids.
