I became friends with a mom whose son was convicted of a very serious crime a few years ago . She has been working tirelessly towards getting some paperwork related to the case and had described being laughed at, hung up on , told to give up and other unprofessional comments by many lawyers she's contacted.
I offered to help her find a lawyer to assist in the next process of the appeal, thinking that with my rescources and know how, it would be easy. I called 10 lawyers on avvo who had received high ratings. Pual Wallin was the only lawyer who took the time to not only listen, but ask the relevant questions and offer his suggestions. He has communicated with me in a way that not only showed his compassion, but also his extreme efficiency at processing complicated and detailed case information.
Yes, I did get laughed at from some of the other lawyer's secretaries, who , besides lacking basic command of the English language, also showed zero kindness or concern about a sad situation. Wallin, knows what he is doing and was helpful even before I ever paid any money.
We are extremely happy in our decision to hire with Wallin on the case and feel lucky to have found a lawyer is willing to fight and go the distance when a case requires the extra push . Contact Wallin and save yourself the trouble of talking to uniformed secretaries and answering machines all day.
I contacted many lawyers during my initial research. My issue was a white collar matter, with which I got responses ranging from no return-calls to quick hang-ups. When I called Mr. Wallin, he treated me like I was the most important call of the day. He listened carefully and respectfully, and then gave his straight forward opinion and input on my case. His knowledge was very impressive and hit on all the points that I was concerned with. I highly recommend calling his office.
unable to hire--out of state--but he gave me excellent, concise and honest answers regarding my situation. I greatly appreciate the time Mr Walin took to answer my questions and for the information he gave me.
I made a careless mistake in my early 20’s and was convicted of Indecent Exposure. As part of my sentence the Judge ordered that I would have to register as a sex offender for the rest of my life. I was devastated. Later on, I learned that I could stop registering if I got a Certificate of Rehabilitation from the court. I trusted the Law Firm of Wallin & Klarich to prepare and argue this monumental issue for me in court. The petition they put together on my behalf was so powerful that the District Attorney agreed that I was rehabilitated and didn’t even file an opposition. The Judge agreed that I was rehabilitated as well and now I wont ever have to register as a sex offender again! The attorneys and staff at Wallin & Klarich were true professionals from start to finish and I strongly recommend their services to anyone facing legal trouble in Southern California.
I was arrested and charged with three DUI cases in California all within about one calendar year. I hired the law firm of Wallin & Klarich and my attorney handled all of my cases at the DMV. I am happy to say that my attorney was able to win all three DMV cases for me! Retaining Wallin & Klarich to handle my legal issues was one of the best decisions I ever made and I would highly recommend their services to anyone facing DUI charges in Southern California.
I was charged with Driving Under the Influence of drugs in San Bernardino County. I live in another state and was so relieved when my Wallin & Klarich attorney was able to make all my appearances for me.
Having a “DUI” on my record or having to do any jail time would have been very difficult for me and my family. Thankfully, I hired the attorneys at Wallin and Klarich who took over my case and advocated on my behalf, without me having to ever come back to California. My attorney at Wallin and Klarich was very knowledgeable and had many years of experience. In addition, his familiarity with the court and his relationship with the district attorney and judge allowed for a very favorable outcome.
He went to court and convinced the district attorney to dismiss the “DUI” charges. They reduced penalties and exposure of accepting the reduced charge of a “wet reckless”, allowed me to not have a “DUI” on my record, as well as an easier time in maintaining my driving privileges. I would highly recommend hiring Wallin and Klarich for any drinking and driving related criminal offense. It could make all the difference in the world.
If you want a law firm that is really willing to fight for you to obtain the best possible result possible in your case I would strongly recommend you calling Wallin and Klarich. I am sure glad I did.
I was charged with possession of a deadly weapon and was facing significant jail time. Unfortunately, I had some prior criminal convictions and was concerned that I would actually serve some jail time. I contacted the law firm Wallin & Klarich and attorney Christopher Lee represented me in my case. Mr. Lee understood my concerns and was very attentive to my case. He returned all my phone calls and emails and discussed at length my case and how he was going to attack the prosecution's case. In the end, Mr. Lee was able to convince the DA to make a no jail time offer. In fact, I was only required to do 3 days of freeway cleanup as a condition of my plea. I was very fortunate to have Mr. Lee as my attorney as I was able to continue to go to work and not have to surrender myself to serve a jail sentence.
Paul Wallin, a simple thank you canâ€™t possibly express how much I appreciated your hard work, professionalism and unwavering dedication to my case. I was accused of felony drug possession and driving while on a suspended license. I knew the district attorney was pushing for 3 years state prison because of the seriousness of the offenses and my prior criminal record. You first explained to me my rights and protections under the constitution, particularly the Fourth Amendment and how these rights applied to my case. The motion to suppress evidence you drafted was powerful and well-written. The judge and district attorney must have agreed because BOTH CHARGES WERE DISMISSED. Words cannot express the appreciation and relief I felt being able to walk freely out of the courthouse with my Mom and kids. This is all thanks to Paul Wallin's dedication and understanding of the law. I would highly recommend the legal services of Wallin & Klarich to anyone who wants an attorney there every step of the way, fighting to protect their rights and freedom.
I had a prior strike on my record for a felony conviction from over 10 years ago. I was arrested and charged with a felony charge for a domestic violence incident. The district attorney charged me with an offense, which if convicted, would be another strike on my record. I was represented by the public defender, and told to take an offer that included another strike and a prison sentence.
I didn't want to serve a prison service so I contacted Wallin & Klarich to see if they could help. I meet with attorney Paul Wallin. After retaining Wallin & Klarich to take over my case, Paul Wallin evaluated my case with me, and explained in great detail the strengths and weaknesses of my case. With Paul Wallin's extraordinary help, my charge was eventually reduced to a misdemeanor, and I didnâ€™t serve any prison time or suffer another strike on my record. I am extremely grateful for Paul Wallin's help when I was in a horrible situation and I need someone to fix it. I highly recommend to anyone who is in severe trouble or any kind of legal trouble. He is really great!
I was charged with three separate violations of driving on a suspended license due to a previous driving under the influence charge and three probation violations. Each of these charges require a minimum of 30 days in jail. In addition I was concerned about being on probation at the time of my new offenses. I was also 7 months pregnant when I went to court. I did not want to have my baby in jail. I hired the Wallin & Klarich Law firm to help me. My attorney Paul Wallin went to court, and worked out a negotiation which included everything and in addition allowed me to apply for and receive an alternate sentence of electronic home monitoring instead of having to go to jail. I am eternally grateful for the work of Paul Wallin. I would recommend him to anyone charged with any criminal matter.â€
