Practice areas
  1. Criminal defense
    50%
    If you are suspected of a crime or charged with a violation of law, you may require the services of a criminal defense attorney to present your defense or negotiate a penalty.

  2. Speeding and traffic ticket
    50%
    If the police give you a ticket for violating traffic laws (quite often for speeding), you may require the services of a traffic ticket lawyer (sometimes called a speeding ticket lawyer) to help you through traffic court.

  • Darrion grew up in South Kansas City and has seen how some of life’s most difficult challenges – domestic violence, traffic penalties, and the criminal justice system – impact everyday people. Darrion gets it – he is committed to helping his clients navigate through the mess to find a way forward.
  • Darrion currently focuses his legal practice on helping people navigate the criminal justice system; He exclusively represents indigent clients in Kansas City who have been charged with jailable city ordinance violations, including but not limited to assault, traffic, DWI, stealing, drug possession, and weapons offenses. 

  • In addition to practicing law, Darrion enjoys the arts. If he is not at a local live theater or musical performance, it is not uncommon to find him spending a Saturday afternoon curled up on the sofa, sketching anything he sees (with a bit of classical, blues or jazz music providing some background inspiration). In addition to the arts, Darrion is an avid reader, getting lost in everything from biographies to Harry Potter. When able, Darrion loves to travel to new places, with his favorite place – so far – being Athens, Greece.

    Experience:

  • Before joining the team at Legal Aid, Darrion owned and managed a solo law practice, where he focused his casework on a mix of injury, criminal, domestic, and employment cases. Immediately before launching his solo practice, Darrion was an assistant prosecutor for Jackson County, where he tried over a dozen bench and jury trials combined, and spent time in the General Crimes Unit mainly prosecuting felony drug and property cases.

FAST AND EASY TO WORK WITH
Mr. Walker helped assist me with representation when I was searching for a lawyer that would handle my issues quickly and be understanding. He asked simple but detailed questions about my situation and was able to fix it in a quick manner that made me feel confident in referring him to friends and family.

Great lawyer
I had a traffic ticket and parking ticket I needed help with and Darrion handled both in a snap! The traffic ticket was reduced to a non-moving/non-points violation and the parking ticket was dismissed entirely. I can't recommend him enough for any of your traffic/ticket legal needs!

Happy someone recommended Darrion!
After a despute regarding substance abuse surfaced at my university, Darrion helped me prove my innocence. He thoroughly researched the guidelines and Code of Conduct then promptly wrote a letter to appeal the charges that ultimately lead my university to review and dismiss my case. Darrion is great and I highly recommend him.
