We had a fairly complex custody case spanning two years, with many motions and hearings, and I was residing on the East Coast, but Jamie, Kendra, and the rest of the team did an excellent job with everything.

Jamie is very knowledgeable at her craft and knows all the right angles and when to take them. She is cool, calm, and collected at ALL times. She sets goals in the courtroom and obtains them. Personally, I feel she is the smartest person in the room. She makes you feel at ease in your consultation as well as prior to your court appearance. If you want someone to take you seriously as a client and winning is the only option, do yourself a favor and hire her. Except no substitutes. She helped me obtain full custodial rights with my son. Thank you Jamie

Jamie R Walker is a competitive, strategic litigator who understands that a person going through a divorce needs a dedicated advocate on their side. She successfully negotiated a settlements and has extensive experience family law. "Behind Jamie’s friendly, outgoing demeanor is an attorney who hates to lose,"
Going through a divorce for my first and hopefully only time in my life after a 30 year marriage was not a fun experience. Jamie was an anchor who always made me feel like we were doing the right thing. We did not have to go to trial we ended the divorce through a mediator. Once again Jamie’s experience came through. She refused the first choice that opposing counsel wanted because she know that it would not be in our favor to use them. Mediation went extremely well. We were very prepared and won on all of our points by having the documentation to show them. I could not have asked for a better result I’m extremely happy with my choice and would recommend her to anyone who is going through an unfortunate divorce. Thanks again Jamie you are a ray of sunshine on a stormy day.

Jamie and her paralegal Kendra were excellent to work with.
Not only did they represent me well, efficiently and with strength and skill, but they made me feel like a person that they cared about, not simply a case among many!
My case was very high conflict, but even with the twists and turns presented by opposing counsel, I never felt unsure of their ability to assess the situation, react in a professional and effective manner. They delivered a result that was not only in my best interest but in the best interest of my children.
Jamie and Kendra communicated with me, each other and the entire legal team that represented me frequently. I always felt informed, involved and included. They took the time to explain the complex legal matters and situations as they arose, and we're sure to prepare me for the next steps ahead as the case moved forward.
I was very impressed with the way they navigated the distinct but intertwined elements of my case, be it the complex financial
Matters, the custody issues or the myriad of other issues, both large and small, that occurred during the course of my case.
I would very strongly recommend working with Jamie and Kendra if you find yourself in need of an intelligent, inventive, appropriately aggressive when required, and personally supportive legal team.

Credibility, Trust, Experience, and Dedication to my story, my case, my life, were the key characteristics I was looking for when choosing a Firm to represent my best interests. I made 6 calls to other Firms/Attorneys to represent me in my divorce/child custody case and it was clear I was choosing McKinley Irvin after having a 15 minute conversation with Attorney Jamie Walker. Jamie walked me through the expectations, cost, timeline, and the level of effort it would take to accomplish a desirable outcome. She was attentive. In addition, her paralegal Kendra Lytle was always quick to respond to my communications and needs. Together, I don't think there is a better team I could have chosen. I had a wonderful experience with McKinley Irvin. They were professional, timely, would redirect efforts when a sense of urgency was warranted, and made me feel comfortable and at ease during one of the most stressful times in my life. I couldn't have made a better choice.
I would highly recommend calling McKinley Irvin, specifically Jamie Walker and Kendra Lytle if you are faced with divorce and a child custody situation. We were able to settle out of court and save a tremendous amount of money due to the savvy and expertise of this firm. Thank you again.

Ms. Walker represented my son in a protracted child custody matter involving my grandchild. From the very first consultation, Ms. Walker impressed me with her ability to analyze the facts presented to her and to develop a strategy quickly. Ms. Walker always maintained a high degree of professionalism in court which allowed my son to remain calm, often under very trying circumstances, and to rely on Ms. Walker for her thorough knowledge of the law involving child custody matters. Ms. Walker's greatest asset, in my opinion, was out-maneuvering the opposing side yet doing so while maintaining the highest ethical standards. Her keen intellect, professional demeanor, and ability to offer my son reassurance as he grappled with the seriousness of the custody matter were invaluable to him. Ms. Walker was successful in procuring both a restraining order and a contempt of court finding in my son's case, which helped to pave the way for an eventual order granting my son custody of my grandson with his mother only being awarded supervised visitation. I am grateful to Ms. Walker for her contribution in helping to remove my grandson from an unhealthy and unstable environment.

My case went to court and Jamie exceeded my expectations. She's smart, quick, and competent under pressure. She clearly articulated my case to a judge to hadn't read a single document either party submitted! This process has been an emotional ride for me and having an amazing lawyer has been my saving grace. Truly the best Christmas present ever.

I have nothing but praise for Jamie. She was patient, understanding but most importantly she was knowledgeable of the laws and process. My case was a pain in the butt and as most divorces was ugly at times. Jamie kept focused and work hard for me. Even after the case was done she answered several questions I had about my ex wife not following the decree. She willing answered them for me right away. I highly recommend her.

Jamie provided excellent legal service in work to restructure my spousal support agreement. The final ruling by the judge ticked down each of the opposing lawyer's points, and found all of those points to be without merit. Jamie, through her knowledge, experience, skill, and tenacity ... was able to make the correct decision on all points very clear to the judge in the case. Additionally, she kept me well informed as the proceedings unfolded. Jamie gave me great advice on trial strategy, and was able to walk me through the positives and negatives of the various options we pursued. The trial was very difficult for me to endure, however Jamie guided me through it perfectly. The overwhelmingly positive trial ruling by the judge confirmed her excellence. As a person, I found her to be both friendly and very professional. Bottom line ... I highly recommend Jamie to anyone needing legal counsel in matters of family law.
