What others have said about Hon. Ann Celine O'Hallaren Walsh


Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: IL2634
This Judge emerges from years of prosecuting for the District Attorney's Office and no experience whatsoever in civil cases. Notwithstanding that, she has now been given an assignment on a civil trial call, a field in which she cannot be anything other than inept. Perhaps she will grow as time goes on, but in the meanwhile she is cutting her teeth on real live civil litigants who must pay more real money to appeal her decisions if necessary. Take a substitution of judge away from this judge if possible.

I have found Judge Walsh to be one of the most knowledgeable judges on the bench. She takes the rules seriously and she will not let people violate orders. She holds people accountable. If you do what she orders and you move the case forward, you will have absolutely no problems with Judge Walsh. I thoroughly enjoy appearing in her courtroom.
