About Me

The practice of law has taken Brian K. Walker far and wide. It initially took him to east Texas right after law school, where he spent a couple of years as an Assistant District Attorney in Harrison County, to handling complex litigation cases throughout DFW today, to currently serving as a reservist in the United States Air Force Judge Advocate General’s Corps, to winning countless veterans hundreds of thousands of dollars in various legal claims throughout the U.S., to the federal district of Hawaii, where Brian was hired and defended one of three army soldiers prosecuted by the Department of Justice in what the head of the DOJ fraud section called “the biggest military fraud case in the history of the Afghanistan war.”


Brian Walker graduated Magna Cum Laude from Texas State University in 2000 with a Bachelor of Science, and received his Doctor of Jurisprudence from the University of Houston in 2003. While attending law school at U of H, Brian clerked for famed criminal defense attorney Richard ‘Racehorse’ Haynes. Prior to attending law school, Brian worked as an intern on the first Bush/Cheney presidential campaign, an Assistant Sergeant-at-Arms of the Texas Senate, a Legislative Assistant to a state house member, and a Messenger for the Texas Senate.


Brian Walker spent four years as an adjunct government professor at Panola College and was the 2008 Republican nominee for a House of Representatives seat in East Texas. He lost his bid for State Representative by 114 votes out of 58,000 cast. Brian is the past Chairman of the Tarrant County Bar Association Veterans Committee and a founding member of the TLTV pro bono program, which holds monthly pro bono legal clinics for veterans in Fort Worth, along with placing indigent veterans with pro bono attorneys on an as-needed basis.


Today Brian Walker’s law practice focuses primarily on military and veterans law, civil litigation, and state and federal criminal defense. Brian is also a frequent lecturer and author on various legal topics. Brian is asked several times a year throughout Texas to teach continuing legal education courses for attorneys on the nuances of military and veterans law and has been published in several legal periodicals and journals on topics pertaining to service members and veterans.
