EXPERIENCED, AGGRESSIVE, TRUSTWORTHY AND RESPECTED

Being contacted by the police can be an intimidating experience for anyone, but when you have been arrested and charged with a crime, your life can change forever. Potential employers, creditors, and even college admission offices can see a criminal arrest and/or conviction on your background. This is precisely why hiring a defense attorney with the proper trial skills, communication skills and knowledge of the law and criminal justice system is such a critical decision. I will do all possible to keep a final conviction off your record. With your freedom at stake, you need someone who is not afraid to fight for you. Remember, you are not guilty until they prove you are guilty. I am highly respected by my peers and former clients alike.

As a former Assistant District Attorney and Felony Prosecutor for Harris County, I know the ropes and I can lead you through the process, protect your rights, zealously represent your case and obtain truly remarkable results. While working at the District Attorney's office, I handled various crimes on both the misdemeanor and felony level, where I gained valuable trial experience. Having prosecuted cases from arraignment through trial provides a perspective and advantage over other defense attorneys in that I am truly able to see the case from both sides and prepare your defense with their strategies in mind. My defense representation is both strategic and results-oriented. I know what his at stake in criminal cases and I am fully aware how the outcome can impact your future.

I have lived in Houston all my life.   I love spending time with family when I am not working.  The best job ever is being a mom! My family has a little land north of Garner State park on the Frio River where I practically grew up as a kid.  We love to go out to the Frio when we can get away. But my passion is the law.  So, please contact me if I can be of assistance.

The Lebron James Of Lawyers
I was charged with a felony last year and I was worried I was going to loose my entire life. Mrs. Walker literally saved my life and calmed me down and told me to trust her. I was looking at best a 2 year deferred sentence and I was getting down on myself. Well After reset after reset Mrs. Walker did the impossible and got a dismissal out of no where. This came such a surprise to me that i screamed out of happiness. There are no words to describe what this lady has done for me. Mrs. Walker has a swag to her that no other lawyer has. She walks around the courthouse like she owns it. She never lets anything get to her and always stays positive. Mrs. Walker I owe everything to you and if theres anyone even thinking of hiring a lawyer DO NOT LOOK BEYOND MRS. WALKER. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED.

A living legend
I unexpectedly caught a domestic violence charge (the result of a false allegation by an “ex-wife” to obtain leverage in our divorce). My case was complex and a conviction looked inevitable. However, Mekisha’s unique experience as a former Chief Prosector with actual trial experience were critical in her approach to understanding the facts of my case, developing a solid legal defense, and aggressively working to get the case dismissed - which she did! As an innocent man, I now have my life back! I cannot thank Mekisha enough.

Responsive and Patient Attorney
It was early on a new year morning when I needed to find an attorney for my son. I reached out to a few highly rated attorneys but none picked up their phone. Then I got to Mrs. Walker. I woke her up! She guided me with what to do first. I later met with her again to see if she would be the right fit for his need. I also interviewed a few more highly rated attorneys. Some promised a dismissal outcome. Some are less expensive. Mrs. Walker did not promise a dismissal outcome but I respect that. I believed in faith and chose her even though her fee was the same as the most expensive attorney I was considering. I'm glad I chose her. She was able to fight for my son and get his case dismissed. She was always on top of her things and very responsive. Thank you.

Unwavering Support and Commitment!!!!
We recently had the privilege of working with criminal defense attorney, Mekisha Walker, and we cannot speak highly enough about the outstanding service and representation our son received. From start to finish, this attorney displayed an unwavering commitment to our son’s case, ensuring that his rights were protected and his voice heard throughout the entire legal process. Right from our first meeting, we were impressed by Ms. Walker's professionalism, knowledge, and genuine concern for our son’s well-being. She took the time to listen attentively to his side of the story, demonstrating empathy and understanding while asking insightful questions to gather all the necessary details. This level of attentiveness immediately put us at ease, as we knew that our son’s case was in capable hands. Moreover, this attorney consistently demonstrated excellent communication skills. She promptly responded to every phone call and email, ensuring that we were always well-informed and up-to-date on the progress of our son’s case. Her ability to explain legal jargon clearly and concisely was greatly appreciated, as it made the entire process less overwhelming and more manageable for us. Above all, what truly stood out was Mekisha's genuine dedication to helping our son. She fought tirelessly advocating for the best possible outcome. Her unwavering support and commitment to our family made a challenging and stressful experience much more bearable, and for that, we are forever grateful.

Hire someone in the fight with you!
I was referred to Mrs. Walker through a close friend who knew my case. It was the best decision I made in such a horrible situation you want to feel like you have someone who will not give up and prepared me for anything. We had such a great conversation on the first meeting, I knew she would represent myself and my case and I expected nothing but the best results. When my world felt like it was coming undone she made sure everyone was protected including my reputation. I felt like I had someone in the fight with me. She is knowledgeable about all criminal laws and it was because of her knowledge that I believe challenged them.

No need to look elsewhere for an attorney
Mekisha was brought on to my case to help build my defense. She was extremely knowledgeable about the domestic violence cycle and the narcissistic behaviors of my ex that we were trying to show. She displayed all the evidence I had gathered over the years in a way to show the whole story of my relationship with my ex and get my charges dismissed. Without her this case would have gone in a completely different direction. Mekisha is an amazing, knowledge attorney that I would recommend to anyone in a similar situation!

Best Criminal lawyer for Domestic Violence
I can't say enough about how exceptional Mekisha is as a lawyer and a human being. Some lawyers do a fine job as lawyers but not really as people. Mekisha is kind and caring along with being an expert in her field. Every lawyer needs lessons from her!

Expunction
Mekisha made what felt like an overwhelming process seem easy. She was understanding and non-judgmental, she made me feel safe, supported and believed. She's responds quickly and is completely discreet. My original lawyer told me that when the case was dismissed it would also be expunged and I didn't see it on public background checks so I thought it was, but not true. I just wish I'd hired Mekisha in the first place. She turned what had been an awful experience into healing one.

Absolutely amazing layer and person
I was caught up in something that could have put several felonies on my record and with the help of Mrs. Walker I got everything completely dropped. Not is she an absolute amazing lawyer and is an awesome human being as well. Never had to worry about her not answering a call or text ever. She was always there for me when I needed here no matter what time it’s was to answer questions or whatever it was I needed. She is more than five stars. Thank you Mrs. Walker for everything you did and also for being such an amazing person.

Mrs. Walker is THE LAWYER
Mrs. Walker is THE LAWYER I hired Mrs. Walker to handle criminal charges I was facing in Harris County and I was very satisfied with her work. She is professional, knowledgeable, and compassionate. She explained everything clearly and answered all my questions patiently. She kept me updated on the progress of the case and always responded to my calls and emails promptly. When she took over my case, I had a lawyer who had been on the case for 8 months and nothing had been filed. When Mrs. Walker took over, everything changed. She got the case dismissed in 2 months. I was facing some serious charges. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a positive outcome in Court.

Houston’s Best!
Mekisha has been wonderful! From our consultation over the phone to the end of the case, everything was smooth. Out of all the lawyers I’ve spoken to, she stood out with her confidence and determination. Was able to get the case resolved within one month while the appointed lawyer made no progress in 6 months. Definitely would recommend & will be using her again!

EVERYONE NEEDS A MEKISHA!!
I found myself in an unfortunate situation. I was arrested with 2 Domestic Violence charges. 1) Felony - Aggravated assault with a Deadly weapon ( a bedside lamp) 2) Misdemeanor -Aggravated assault that caused bodily injury. I called the cops as I was scared for my life but ended up being arrested. I was taken to the county jail and got a bond the next day. The 24hrs I spent in there felt like my life was over. To make matters worse, I was given a 60days order to stay 1000ft away from my home. I am a mum of 2 little girls. I was devastated. I am primarily responsible for their care. I was given 2 attorney contacts to consult with. I called the first, went in physically to see the attorney, spent 1 hr and came out worse than I felt when I went in. Called the second, left a message for a call back. While waiting for the second option to call, I googled attorneys around me and Mekisha came up on the list. I read some of her reviews and decided to give her a call. She picked! I spoke with her for about 10mins and felt at peace. I knew there and then she was the right attorney to go with. She believed me and was emphathetic. She was very patient with me, explaining the process over and over. Mekisha held my hand during this process. She got my case dismissed the next day a prosecutor was assigned. I didnt have to chase her or check in regularly while waiting to have a prosecutor assigned. She went above and beyond. I am grateful for Mekisha. Everyone needs a Mekisha. While I dont pray to get into any form of trouble in the future, I am excited to know I have an attorney that I can recommend to my family and friends for ANY criminal case. Thank you Mekisha!

Amazing lawyer!
Ms.Walker has been an excellent helper with my case. The communication she has is amazing and how real she keeps it makes me comfortable . The way she explained things on our first call gave me confidence in her and knew she was the one I wanted to assist me with my case. I felt no judgment from her and love the fact that she makes a long drive to assist me. The way I see her speaking and how she presents herself is amazing.

Hired Mekisha based on AVVO reviews and phone consultation. She throughly explained the process of finding the best solution for the situation. She went above and beyond to meet my expectations of getting a dismissal and she did! Not once did I have to go to court date. She took care of it all.
