Mary Ann Walker

Mary Ann Walker was born in Los Angeles and raised in Sonora, Mexico. With a degree from Webster University, she embarked on an entrepreneurial journey that led to the creation of Walker Advertising, which seeks to bridge the gap between a law firm’s need to grow and an underserved community’s need for trustworthy legal services. Walker recognized that many Latinos did not receive the justice they deserved simply because they did not speak English well. She shared her concerns with attorneys and proposed to publicize their services in the Hispanic community, leading to the creation of Los Defensores and, later, 1-800-THE-LAW2.
