Kaleb S. Walker

Email 

True to his engineering training, Kaleb Walker brings a rational and analytical style to his legal practice, which focuses on construction transactions and defect litigation. He represents owners, developers, general contractors, EPC contractors, subcontractors, architects, and engineers, representing his clients through contract drafting and negotiation and through dispute resolution.

A fifth-generation Texan, Mr. Walker graduated from Texas A&M University, summa cum laude, in 2012 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering. He then earned both a Juris Doctorate degree and Master of Science in Civil Engineering degree from the University of Alabama in 2015.

An avid college football fan, Mr. Walker enjoys watching the Aggies play in the Southeastern Conference. He and a group of fellow Aggies have attended an away conference game each season since 2012, with the goal of visiting all fourteen SEC stadiums by 2024.
