About Me

My name is Beth Walker and I have been practicing law in Central Iowa for fifteen years.  The majority of my practice is workers compensation and estate planning. I grew up in Des Moines, Iowa and was a social worker when I graduated from college.  I learned a lot about families and helping people while practicing social work.  I attended Drake Law School and graduated Order of the Coif.  I joined Walker Billingsley & Bair in 2000 after finishing law school.


 


I am married to Corey Walker and we enjoy practicing law together.  We have two children and spend our free time doing outside activities.  One of our favorite hobbies is hiking fourteeners in Colorado.  We also enjoy good wine and visiting wineries to learn about the winemaking process.
