Sedrick Walker is a Houston native and graduate of Texas A&M University. Sedrick graduated with honors from A&M in 2005 with a B.S. in Political Science.
After graduating from University of Texas School of Law in Austin, Sedrick worked as a prosecutor at the Harris County District Attorney's Office from 2009 to 2012 where he handled thousands of cases ranging from misdemeanors to 1st-degree felonies. His experience included working on every aspect of cases from the initial filing stage, gathering evidence, making grand jury presentations in felony cases, and ultimately the trial phase. As an Assistant DA, Sedrick was recognized for his willingness to work long hours, fairness in negotiations with the defense bar, and a constant commitment to a prosecutor’s ultimate duty – to seek justice, not merely to convict.
Sedrick opened a private law practice in 2013 that primarily focuses on criminal defense mostly devoted to representing and fighting for people who cannot otherwise afford to hire counsel. As a defense attorney, Sedrick gained an insight into the impact of the criminal justice system on the daily lives of those accused and their families. Although in many instances the system assesses criminal cases with an assembly-line approach, Sedrick is a strong advocate for individualized justice. He believes fairness and equity are more likely to be achieved with a case-by-case analysis of the facts and the background of the individual standing before the court.
