Over the past 28 years in Northern California's foothill communities, Mr. Walker has walked literally thousands of people, counseling them through California's complex legal maze with two goals in mind:

1) providing fierce & tireless advocacy, and  
2) avoiding or minimizing negative consequence

While every case is different, Bill always helps minimize the effects of a criminal case.

Although he considers himself first and foremost a trial lawyer, Mr. Walker also routinely represents individuals whose main interest is in resolving their case as promptly and simply as possible. Mr. Walker understands very well that each person’s situation is different, but he strives to minimize the effects of a criminal case to allow his clients to put the case behind them and move on with their lives. If you or someone you love has been arrested, is being investigated, or, has been charged with a crime, call Mr. Walker today for a COMPLETELY CONFIDENTIAL CONSULTATION: 530-478-0675.
