Jordan Walsh joined Allison MacKenzie in 2015. She is a graduate of the University Of Oregon School Of Law, and was admitted to practice in California and Nevada in 2014.

While in attendance at the University of Oregon, Jordan was elected to the Executive Board of the Journal of Environmental Law and Litigation. During her second and third years of law school, Jordan served Assistant Dean Adel Amos, Professor Eric Priest, and the Honorable Karsten H. Rasmussen as a Research Assistant. In addition, she was employed by the Lane County District Attorney in the Office of the County Counsel as a Law Clerk, and selected as a Participant in the University’s Environmental Law Clinic. In her roles as a Research Assistant, Law Clerk, and Clinic Participant, Jordan gained a multitude of experience working on issues of environmental law, intellectual property law, land use law, municipal law, and water rights law.

Dedicated to the Carson/Tahoe community, Jordan returned to the Southshore of Lake Tahoe to begin her legal career in 2013. Her experiences in Law School and her time as a staff member of the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency have familiarized Jordan with the unique challenges associated with living in the Tahoe Basin, and have prepared her to assist her neighbors in the Carson/Tahoe community.

Jordan is outdoor enthusiast and enjoys taking advantage of the opportunities for sport and exploration that make living in the heart of the Sierras such a privilege.
