Jackie Walsh, a partner at Walsh & Larrañaga, is a member of the Washington and California State Bar Associations. 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. In 2014, she was added as resource counsel with the Federal Death Penalty Resource Counsel Project.
