Compassionate and supportive. Knowledgeable and highly effective. Prompt and communicative. I was able to trust her to stay on top of my case. I recommend her without reservation.

Jaime helped me through the hardest time in my entire life. I owe her everything and do not feel you can put a price when it comes to your children. She and her paralegal were good at working to give me attention (I required a lot of attention :) ). I learned a lot from her and it gave me the confidence that after my case was over that I can make it through anything. She was sympathetic and understanding and spoke very well in court. She is level headed and understands the emotions that a client can be feeling and is proactive to ensure the best outcome. She helps through doubt and fear. Always be honest with her, its the only way she help you. In closing. I strongly would promote Jaime. She helped change my life.

Ms. Walker is a go getter. However, she seems to fabricate and embellish a little too much, which in turn was very bad for my case. She has great communication skills and very knowledgable, very professional and plays the part well. However, needs to stick to facts, its too easy to disprove embellishments.

Jamie was very helpful during a trying divorce. She was adept in dealing with opposing counsel and gave me sound advice during a time when emotions ran particularly high. I would recommend Jamie Walker to anyone who is in the process of divorcing, because she kept me grounded and informed every step of the way and enabled me to settle via mediation instead of a trial. She knew when to stand firm on a position and when to acquiesce. Despite the difficulty of the situation, she stayed close to my case and helped me finalize and close a tough chapter of my life.

I have had the pleasure of working with McKinley Irvin for almost two years. When my case first got started, it was so complicated (international family battle) that all attorneys in Kitsap county (even the "best" ones) refused to take it. Other Seattle attorneys were the same. I found McKinley Irvin and when Jamie Walker took on my case, she hit the ground running. My case was so complex, that it was even hard to explain, but with Jamie's acute sense of understanding and perception, she knew what needed to be done, and prospered during each motion and during trial. On a personal level, I think we all know that the parties who are involved in legal disasters are like patients going under general anesthesia; it's essential to confide and trust an attorney because family proceedings are like having one's life on the line. Jamie is warm, caring, very personable and reassuring especially during the most crucial moments.
I am so proud of my legal team and I infinitely recommend Jamie Walker for either simple proceedings or complex disasters as mine was. With Jamie's triumph in the courtroom, she successfully pulled me through a year of litigation. Thank you!!! Family is priceless!!!

Jamie Walker was a wonderful lawyer to work with. She was very knowledgeable about all things family law and not once did our confidence in her wavier. Throughout our experience working with Jamie she was consistently encouraging and positive. Not once did she set unrealistic goals and was never without an answer to what the next step would be. If necessary, we would definitely work with Jamie again.

Jamie Walker did such a good job on my divorce. She listened, was honest with me about how things would most likely go, and, didn't try to offer me the world just because she could to get my case. I felt through the whole process she was professional, very well respected by the court, kind, and very knowledgable. I don't think my case would've gone as smoothly as it did if I hadn't retained Jamie. I highly recommend Jamie to anyone needing a family law attorney. I've already sent her 2 friends and they have nothing but good things to say about her too.

Jamie was amazing. I was in a very sticky and very uncommon custody battle with my ex. Jamie assured me and gave me piece of mind that I was the only winner here. She did her research exceptionally well and came very prepared for court. I was very nervous due to it be a very uncommon case, but Jamie calmed me and had my best interest in mind. She fought like a champion and I walked away with exactly what I wanted. Even if she was nervous, she showed no fear and handled this case very well. She answered many of my "dumb" questions, and didn't treat me like I was. Definitely would recommend or use again. Thanks to Jamie and her paralegal for exceptional service.

My experience with Jamie Walker from Tim Edwards and Associates has been exceptional in every way. Jamie is a great advocate that anyone would be happy to have representing them. Jamie is full of integrity, knowledgeable, reliable, responsive, very fast, and easy to work with.
I was kept very well informed of everything happening during the multiple revisions, and modifications that I needed to go through. Jamie always laid out the options available to me and represented my position like a champion. She assisted me in making the best decisions possible for myself and my daughter and always followed through on exactly what we agreed on.
I have worked with 2 other family law firms in the past. Working with Jamie and the entire staff at Tim Edwards and Associates was a pleasure during very stressful and uncertain times. They do all of the little things that let you know you are important and not just another case. Everyone there is willing to take the extra effort to make sure things are taken care of in a timely manner. I always heard back from Jamie or someone else the same day or the the next morning after leaving a message.
I would HIGHLY recommend Jamie to anyone in need of a family law attorney. I have, and will continue to refer people to Jamie and her firm. You will not do any better.

Working with Jamie Walker from Tim Edwards and Associates was a waste of my time, energy and money. Weak representation in court, took three court date just to get me a protection order. Failed to file a key document in form of a declaration which negatively effected my case. Failed to infor the other party that i wanted to mediate/settle. Was not prepared at times and wanted documents signed last minute, very stressful and frustrating. I do not recommend Jamie Walker as your divorce attorney.
