Awesome Lawyer !!
Barry has helped me with several legal matters, and each time his focus was on the case and getting me the best result possible. Barry's rates a quite reasonable and he works hard to earn his fee, He and his team go out of their way to answer any questions you may have, and he gives you straight, honest answers, not what you want to hear, but rather, what you need to hear. I have found Barry to be an honest, fair, and extremely competent. You will not be disappointed!

Review of Walker Trial Lawyers and Staff
I have had the pleasure of working with a lot of this firm's staff. During a very stressful, frightening process looking for help for my mom during an unfavorable work experience, no other lawyers were willing to help. My first contact was with Amy Oakden...IMMEDIATELY I knew I had hit the lottery. SHE CARED. She spoke to the partners and THEY cared. During one very scary incident, Mr. Barry Walker himself was on the phone with me and ensuring me that it would all be okay and that in the event I needed someone after hours, he gave me his personal cell number. Not only do they care...they ALL know their stuff!! Larissa was another awesome lawyer that came to our aid. I am also so impressed by the rest of their staff. Vicki Warren and Misti Janes. I have had frequent contact with them...and the caring and amazing customer service flows from Mr. Walker all the way through the office. Once this firm took over my mom's case...I have been able to let it go and let them handle it. NO WORRIES. Great lawyers, and just really good PEOPLE. I also really appreciate how responsive they are. They get that people are calling during a period in their lives that may not be the best time!

Great Attorney!!
I was being sued for 1 million dollars. Barry got my case settled for 15k and had the other attorney agree to $300 monthly payments at that. Should I say more Thanks Barry

The absolute best!!!
Barry was very sympathetic and trustworthy! After having a bad experience with jolley and jolley (Vernon) I was lost! Barry was very knowledgable and kept me informed! Misti is the absolute best! If I ever had a question day or night she responded quickly! They work with your financial situation! Nothing but the best from this office! Without them my daughter wouldn't be safe and sound! I can't thank you all enough! Sincerely, Mindy W

ADA Complaint settled
My accounting client and his commercial tenant were served with an ADA complaint by one of the lawsuit mills in SoCal. Another attorney worked on the case for a few weeks with no progress. We met with Barry Walker on a Friday afternoon. By the time we returned to our office 2 hours later, he already had a tentative agreement with the Plaintiff, for a fraction of the prior settlement offer. Two and a half weeks later, we had all docs signed, sealed and delivered. Barry and his staff were pleasant and knowledgeable, fees reasonable, favorable settlement, quick resolution. All in all, the best possible outcome when you're stuck in lawsuit purgatory.

Employment and labor Attorney | Mar 01
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"Mr. Walker was opposing counsel on a wage and hour class action matter. He defended the matter with great efficiency which allowed us to move quickly to class certiication and settlement without generating large attorney fees. I think this was an excellent discharge of the duties Mr. Walker had to his client as his client was not encumbered by both back wage claims and huge attorney fees to boot. I would refer without hesitation a case to Mr. Walker and feel confident that the person asking for the referral would get top notch and efficient representation."

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Barry is the litigator you want on your side if you ever find yourself in a law suit.

I would recommend him again without hesitation to anyone in need of a dedicated attorney with an excellent record in the court room!"
