Mary Ann Walker
Chief Marketing Officer
As a longtime advocate for latinos and founder of the first and largest Spanish legal advertising firm in the United States, Mary Ann Walker has helped hundreds of thousands of latinos in the United States obtain legal services resulting in hundreds of millions of dollars in settlements and awards. Her dedication to obtaining justice for latinos started when she was only 22-years old working as a Spanish language court interpreter in the Los Angeles Courts in the early 1980’s, where she saw Latinos denied fair and equal justice simply because they couldn’t speak English. Witnessing this unjust disparity, she created a firm dedicated to providing equal access to all legal services for the underserved latino market. In the 1990’s Walker collaborated with the California State Bar to write the rules regulating legal advertisers.
As a marketing expert known for her award-winning innovative marketing strategies with an unwavering commitment to the latino community she will lead the Marketing Team at the Walker FIrm to ensure latinos continue to have equal access to the education and legal services they deserve.
Her passion for her community is recognized nationwide. She was asked by the Biden-Harris team to use her extensive marketing expertise and media relationships to help register Spanish-speaking latinos to vote during the 2020 election. Her work resulted in reaching over 25 million Spanish-Language listeners and viewers with the message of voter registration on TV, radio and digital media platforms including Univision, Entravision, Estrella Media, Spanish Broadcasting Systems, Media Latin Communications (MLC), and Azteca TV.
Throughout her career, she has served on numerous boards to support the Latino community both in the U.S.A. and abroad including serving on the Advisory Board of the Woodrow Wilson Center, Latin American Program; the Atlantic Council Advisory Board focusing on Guatemala for the Central America team; Vice Chair of the Pacific Council’s Mexico Initiative; and on the Board of Directors for the US Mexico Chamber of Commerce. In 2019, Ms. Walker was tapped to serve on the El Paso – Ciudad Juárez Delegation by the Pacific Council of Los Angeles, charged with examining the mass exodus of Central Americans seeking asylum in the United States and in January 2020, she joined as a 9/11 pre trial observer at the Guantanamo Bay Justice Camp.
Walker is a graduate of Webster University, Los Angeles, where is a member of Delta Mu Delta, the International Honor Society in Business administration and is a contributing writer for the National Trial Lawyer publications and has lectured at Loyola Law School, the National Trial Lawyers Association and Marymount University.
