Walker Announces Candidacy for Circuit Judge Position

Chris Walker officially announces his candidacy for the newly created Circuit Court Judge seat, encompassing Rankin and Madison counties. Due to increasing population growth in our two counties, the Mississippi Legislature added an additional Circuit Court Judge for the 20th Circuit Court District. It is my desire to be your new Circuit Court Judge.

As one of the founding partners of Markow Walker, P.A. we employ 42 people in 3 cities. I maintain the highest possible rating available to lawyers, AV 5.0 Preeminent by Martindale- Hubbell® Peer Review Ratings™. I have been selected by my peers for inclusion in THE BEST LAWYERS in AMERICA and MID-SOUTH SUPER LAWYERS.

I have spent  39 years trying cases in every kind of court in Mississippi, including Federal Courts. I have also handled appeals before The Mississippi Supreme Court, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals and The United States Supreme Court.

A graduate of Millsaps College, I attended The University of Mississippi School of Law and earned my Juris Doctorate degree.  I have practiced in all aspects of circuit court  representing both plaintiffs and defendants in civil litigation.

One of the defining items in our system of government that distinguishes us from failed nations is the Rule of Law and confidence in our judiciary.  We remember the freedoms and liberties granted by God and secured by our Constitution.

It is my desire as your new Circuit Judge to ensure we have a fair business environment for employers to create jobs and for our neighborhoods to remain safe for our families.  It is my time to give back to the communities that have given so much to me.

I am married to Carly Tigrett Walker and together we have 6 adult children, 2 daughters- in-law, 2 sons-in-law, 2 grandsons and 1 more on the way.

For our communities to prosper, we need judges who will deliver justice to criminals. And I pledge to you as judge I will rule on every case according to the Constitution, the law and the facts.

The lions share of what a circuit judge does is to try felony criminal cases. Marty Miller, Assistant District Attorney to Michael Guest, has spent the last 10 years doing just that. And we all know what happens to criminals when they encounter the Madison-Rankin County DA. Marty is the ONLY candidate with that kind of experience. We want to keep the crime rate low here in Rankin county. That's why I'm supporting Marty Miller
