Maria
Walker

Attorney

T. 530-219-4552

Maria is a recent law school graduate who is drawn to investigations because she can interview various parties to reach an unbiased conclusion. She joined OIG because of the firm’s diversity, which she feels is important when conducting unbiased investigations.

Experience

Maria worked with UC Davis School of Law’s Immigration Law Clinic, where she assisted on nationwide class actions. During her final semester of law school, she interned at a mid-size employment law firm.

Before law school, Maria earned a master’s degree in Latin American studies from Stanford University. While at Stanford, she studied human rights and immigration. Shortly thereafter, Maria volunteered as a translator for the CARA pro bono project.

Maria can conduct investigations in both English and Spanish.

Outside the Office

Maria loves traveling, spending time with her dog, riding her Peloton and trying new restaurants with her partner.
