I strongly believe that every person accused of a crime is entitled to an attorney who zealously advocates and fights on their behalf. Zealous representation requires subordinating all other interests – ideological, career and personal – to the legitimate interest of the client.

I have been a part of Wallin & Klarich for many years and I remain committed to providing each of my clients with aggressive and knowledgeable legal representation. When you hire Wallin & Klarich, you hire a team of attorneys who work together to make certain that every legal avenue is explored in the defense of your rights.
