Jacqueline K. Walsh, a partner at Walsh & Larrañaga, graduated from Gonzaga Law School in 1991. Prior to law school, she attended the University of Washington. She is a member of the Washington and California State Bar Associations. Her law practice focuses on criminal defense and civil plaintiff personal injury cases, in both State and Federal Courts. In her civil practice, she has represented injured persons in medical malpractice claims, serious automobile collisions, and sexual harassment cases often resulting in either substantial awards or confidential settlements for her clients. In her criminal practice, Washington State and Federal Courts have appointed her as learned counsel on capital cases at the trial level. As learned counsel, she, along with her team, has successfully obtained less than life sentences through plea negotiations in capitally charged cases, convinced federal and state prosecutors not to authorize the case as capital and has convinced the United States government to dismiss a triple homicide indictment in a potential capital case. She has presented at national and international conferences on various aspects of capital defense representation. The Washington Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers honored Ms. Walsh with the President's Award in 2005 for her distinguished service to the criminal defense bar.
