Managing Attorney & CEO

In 2011, Attorney Walker founded the Walker Legal Group, where her primary focus is civil litigation and criminal defense. Over the last twelve years, she has successfully litigated personal injury claims, labor and employment cases, and contract disputes in the Virgin Islands courts and administrative tribunals. She has also successfully defended federal drug conspiracy and murder trials in the District Court of the Virgin Islands. Her litigation experience includes successfully pursuing and defending appeals involving constitutional law and matters of first impression in the Virgin Islands.

Most recently, Attorney Walker was instrumental in the passage of the Virgin Islands Cannabis Use Act making the Virgin Islands the 25th state/territory of the United States to legalize marijuana use by adults for medicinal, sacramental, and other uses. The firm’s contribution to this landmark legislation, which also included enacting a law to provide automatic expungement of records for arrests, prosecutions, and convictions of simple possession will impact approximately 300 individuals who were convicted for simple possession in the Virgin Islands over the last 20 years and introduce an additional and emerging industry in the Virgin Islands.
