Van Kley & Walker focuses on delivering insightful, practical solutions, and reliable teamwork for clients with environmental law and policy challenges. With more than six decades of combined experience in environmental law, Chris Walker and Jack Van Kley offer depth of perspective across a wide range of environmental issues. We assist our clients in litigation, compliance counseling, permitting, property transactions, mediation, and legislation. We combine our strong legal experience with careful attention and prompt response to client needs and priorities.

Both Chris Walker and Jack Van Kley are former government litigators and large-firm practitioners. Our long-term relationships with government regulators aid us in working cooperatively with them to solve your problems. Where circumstances dictate opposition to government demands, we can draw upon insights from past government service to develop and inform an appropriate defense strategy. We strive to apply our experience in a manner that is professional, flexible, responsive, personal, and cost-effective.
