Richard Elliott Walker

About me

          If you want experience on your side for your DWI, I am your choice.  As a Police Officer/Sheriff's Deputy for fourteen years, I enforced DWI/DUI laws as well as traffic laws.  


           The truth of the matter is that I know more about what police officers should be doing than most police officers.  If you have been arrested for DWI, call me and I can help.


          Specifically, I was trained in the following areas: DWI/DUI Enforcement Officer as well as a Drug Recognition Expert Practitioner/Instructor (DRE) which consists of drug (legal and illegal) impaired driving detection and enforcement; Standardized Field Sobriety Testing Practitioner/Instructor, which are the tests that police officers give you when you are under the suspicion of DWI; Motor Vehicle, Commercial Motor Vehicle, and Motorcycle Accident Reconstruction Practitioner, which consisted of the investigation and reconstruction of serious and fatal traffic crashes; Sobriety Checkpoint Supervisor, which meant that I conducted and supervised Sobriety Checkpoints; and Field Training Officer, which means that I trained new police officers on proper policy and procedure, to include DWI detection and enforcement.

  • Paul O'Rourke

    I have worked with Rich as a law enforcement officer and we are co-counsel on a criminal case. He brings a special insight to criminal cases that only a former law enforcement officer can. I highly recommend him for DWI or criminal defense. He has a very special skill set from his experience as a former Vehicle Crash Investigator (VCI), Drug Recognition Expert (DRE) and DWI enforcement officer that he is able to put to use for his clients..

    Mr. Walker brings a unique level of expertise to his practice in criminal defense. He combines several years of trial experience with the added experience that comes with being a former police officer. Having seen Mr. Walker in court on several occasions, I would confidently recommend him to anyone in need of a legal advocate.
