Orange County's Most Understanding and Trustworthy Juvenile Delinquency Attorney!
Attorney David E. Wohl from Wallin & Klarich provided excellent representation during my current legal matter. I am still a teenager, and attorney Whol was able to understand me and show me that I was not alone. I made a very bad decision in life, but Mr. Wohl fought really hard to give me a second chance. I will always be thankful for all the effort he put in my case and for achieving the best possible result. I will recommend attorney Wohl and the law firm of Wallin & Klarich to any other teenager that is looking for a second chance in life. Thank you!

Amazing Lawyer!
David was communicative throughout the entire process and truly made me feel like I was in good hands! He updated me every step of the way and thoroughly explained things to me. David is efficient, compassionate, and knowledgeable. I genuinely recommend him to anyone looking for a lawyer! David was able to seal my arrest records and give me a peace of mind as I apply to graduate programs.

THANK YOU!!
David wohl helped me get off probation in an expedited manner. I am so happy with his communication skills as well as his confidence in what he does. He assured me I had nothing to worry about and I didn’t even have to be present at the court date. He was there on my behalf and took take of everything and I got the amazing news the day of that my probation has been terminated.

Solid Attorney
We were recommended this attorney by a family friend who was dealing with federal time. David has worked his way through to get my husband a great deal and he will soon be reunited with his family in a blink of an eye. He dealt with all of our emotions, frustration, and our impatience in such a respectful way and kept assuring us that he would get my husband a great deal but that we had to be patient. David managed to get this case resolved within 3 months. Very satisfied with the outcome & highly recommend him if your loved one is looking at serious time. Thank you David!

Great Representation!
I consulted with several attorneys and decided to hire David. I had two cases, one was a battery and the other property damage. David represented me well in court. The result was having them dismissed.

Early Termination Probation
I would like to thank this man, for giving me my life back a lot sooner than I expected. The system most definitely has a way with time, although never easy, but Attorney Wohl despite having to deal with a horrible probation system helped me get through it. My family and I are forever thankful and since day one on my case he’s been attentive and honest , which not many do in this type of environment (the law). Thank you so much.

The Best Criminal Defense Attorney I Have Ever Met in My Lifetime!
Mr. David Wohl is an excellent criminal defense attorney in the whole wide world! I was recently notified of a case I had from California which has been pending for 5yrs. But after accepting Mr. David Wohl to assist me, at his first appearance in court where my case resides, he was able to dismiss the case immediately without second appearance. I cannot thank you enough for your help sir. It's a blessing to have met you in my life. I am super grateful!

David Wohl provided very great representation and communication in all courtroom settings that I have appeared in. He was able to communicate and persuade the judge and district attorney to give me the opportunity to enter a diversion program and to arrive home earlier. He even offered additional monthly representation without any extra charge when I was accepted into the diversion court, for an additional 14 more months total. Overall I felt that my legal ordeal and journey has had a much successful outcome under his retainment and representation, and I appreciate his legal services greatly. Much highly recommend!

I can move on with my life!!
I had a very long and difficult case. Because of this law firm, we got the win and I can move on with my life. I was facing many years, the odds were stacked against me, the DA was playing dirty, and yet in the end I am free. I was really impressed with how they handled the jury selection process, opening and closing statements, handling of witnesses. Thanks for you patients thought the process

Excellent
I can’t express in words how much I owe to Mr Wohl. A family member had lost his way and had found himself into quite a bad situation. He was facing a mandatory 20 to life. Not sure how he did it, but David got that taken off the table and in the end, he’ll do about 8.5 years. Huge accomplishment in our eyes.

Three counts of ADW DISMISSED!!?
Attorney David Wohl is the best in business!!! I’m writing this in the parking lot of the courthouse in which he helped me get 3 counts of ASSAULT WITH A DEADLY WEAPON dismissed!!!! Today is a great day!!! It always will be a great day if you have David on your team. His professionalism and knowledge of the law is out of this world. Whenever he walks in a courtroom he is highly respected and revered by the other attorneys. He helped me with a life changing and altering case that I was without a doubt innocent of and I’m so grateful I made the investment into retaining him! Thank you so much Mr. Wohl.

Fixed my issue on the first call.
David called me for a consult and after reviewing my case, figured out why I was denied my SENTRI PASS. It was a $270 fine! I will definitely recommend to anyone who is looking to get results. Keep in mind, my case fine was from 2006. Call was just 15 minutes! Thanks David!

Riverside County’s Best Defense Attorney
Dave Wohl is a superb Defense Attorney who is well known within the Riverside Criminal Court system. This is very important for any defendant who is seeking a defense attorney who gets realistic results, in navigating through a strict Riverside Criminal court system. He met our family’s expectations, of getting our loved one released from custody, with realistic and attainable conditions. I highly recommend at least an initial consultation with Dave, before making any decision regarding a criminal case in Riverside county. He is truly doing the Lord's work!

First Class Service With Results
I was prevented from purchasing a firearm due to a felony on my record from 20 years ago for possession of marijuana. I contacted Attorney David Wohl and after a few phone calls, I hired him and he got my case dismissed. Mr. Wohl did exactly what he said he would and always answered or returned calls. He did not bill me for calls and kept to the agreed price. Mr Wohl provides first-class service and has extensive expertise in practicing law. I highly recommend Attorney David Wohl.

Domestic violence case
Attorney David Wohl represented me in a domestic violence case that held charges of two felonies at the time of filing. David did a great job in court and communicating with the DA and got my entire case dismissed with no charges. He did a great job.

The Right man for the Job and someone who gave me my life back
There is not enough good things and credit I can give this man. I have never ever been in trouble with the law in my life always done the right thing, even in college I am studying law. I get a terrible accusation made my way and I am at a loss not knowing what to do. Talk to a few attorneys and get David recommended to me he did not try to take advantage money wise and gave me a set and fair price. Throughout my whole ordeal day or night when I had a melt down David always assured me it would be ok and kept me informed calming me down. He told me to trust him and even though he is extremely busy always made sure I knew what was going on and got back to me in a timely manner. I can not thank this man enough for giving me my peace of mind and life back and reminding me why I myself want to get into legal work. He ended up getting me the best possible result with zero issues and much faster than what every other lawyer was telling me, a year long process, but with David it was done in 4 months. If you want a lawyer that will fight for you every step of the way, not sugar coat anything, and do his utmost to take care of you call and hire David Wohl. He is a lawyer that truly cares about the people he represents. Thank you David for everything.

Best man to get you a fair sentence
I was recently in some trouble in the federal courts due to an incident at a national park. I was quite afraid of my sentencing before finding David as I was facing federal jail time. Number one, David was the only person that did not try to take advantage of my inexperience and fear - he offered me a very fair price compared to the $15,000+ other lawyers told me it would cost. He also put my mind at ease, being realistic with what he suggested might happen in court vs the horror stories other attorneys I consulted with had shared. In the end, 2 of my 3 felonies were dropped and the third was dropped to a misdemeanor when I plead guilty to it. This was also due to actions I had taken to make necessary changes to better myself and my life before court, but I couldn't have done it without David. I would recommend him to anyone that is afraid they might be over punished for a mistake theyve made in life and would like to just move forward and make sure it never happens again.

Great attorney
The legal process can be very frustrating. Dave did an excellent job of representing my interests and ensuring the best possible outcome. He was able to negotiate a plea which was an acceptable outcome without having to go to trial.
