About Me

Ms. Walsh is a successful Juvenile Attorney who has handled thousands of juvenile cases.  As a former juvenile prosecutor, she knows the ins and outs of Juvenile Court.  Most attorneys concentrate on Adult Crime, and are out of their element when it comes to juvenile law because there are different rules and procedures.  Few attorneys focus their practice on juvenile law.  Ms. Walsh wants to get your child a second chance.

    I had the pleasure (or challenge, depending on how you look at it) of dealing with Ms. Walsh when she was a Deputy DA in Orange County. There were many instances over several years that we found ourselves on opposing sides on many different cases. I can attest based on those interactions that Ms. Walsh's preparation, judgement and skill are of the highest quality. In addition, as a prosecutor, she consistently listened to opposing counsel and considered all arguments before deciding on a case. I'm positive that as a criminal defense attorney and juvenile attorney these qualities will tremendously benefit her clients.

    Katie was an excellent O.C.D.A., and now she's an excellent defense attorney. I have handled numerous cases with Katie, and she always worked with the highest level of integrity, knowledge, and professionalism. I am proud to call Katie not just a colleague, but also a friend.
