Deric Yoakley


Deric graduated from the University of Arkansas School of Law in 1999, following a very undistinguished college basketball career as an Arkansas Tech Wonderboy (yes, really). He worked for and with local litigators in Northwest Arkansas before eventually opening and operating his own law firm. Deric began managing Walmart tort litigation in-house in 2015 before taking over as the Third Party Subpoena attorney in 2017. He is currently in the role of Managing Counsel at Walmart, leading the eDiscovery team that supports litigation and investigations. His family consists of two large sons, a hundred-pound dog, and a beautiful wife, who is outnumbered but is also a wonderful sport who will follow us to athletic events all over the U.S. and beyond.
