Some of Our Practice Areas


Our lawyers represent a number of clients in the entertainment industry, including artists, managers, producers, songwriters, record labels, corporations and other entities.

Our lawyers have sat on panels, taught classes, led workshops and traveled world-wide teaching and speaking about entertainment law. Our team works hard to protect the rights of our clients.


Walker & Associates has an active and well-respected team of musical litigators who represent small labels, artists, producers, songwriters and musicians in various litigation matters.

Our goal is to use the courts to enforce proprietary rights of our clients. You must have a legal team that understands where the music studio meets the courthouse.


Our corporate lawyers regularly handle mergers and acquisitions, incorporation issues, stock and asset acquisitions, joint ventures, limited liability company formation, and financing for private companies.

Our work ranges from representing small businesses, record labels, publishing houses, and various businesses in the general corporate world.


Our real estate lawyers are trained in various aspects of commercial and residential real estate law. The complex practice and law governing how we deal with real property ownership, development, use and control changes continually as our nation diversifies and becomes a melting pot.

It is critical for clients to have a legal team in place that understands global changes.

Walker Family

Walker and Associates is a firm that values family first. We encourage our associates and staff members to make sure they take care of their families and provide a bright future for the generations to come. We offer our staff members full estate planning and guidance on wills, trusts and living health care agent appointments.

For years, we have helped staff members with first time home buying and supporting the educational pursuits of their children. Without a supporting and prosperous family, we are not doing our job as a firm.

Attorney Walker has four children who are the inspiration for what he does daily at the firm and in the Greater Atlanta community and community worldwide as an active citizen. We encourage anyone working with our firm or utilizing the legal services of our firm, to make sure you take care of family first.

Attorney Walker often says, “without my Mom and family, I do not know where I would be today.”
