This is my story: I was charged with two felony counts of second degree burglary. I had prior theft convictions so I was afraid that I would serve some serious jail time. I called Wallin & Klarich and met with David Cohn. David was able to explain my situation to me and explained exactly how he could defend me.
David was able to get my two felony counts dismissed and I plead guilty to only one petty theft misdemeanor. I am grateful for David’s hard work. Most importantly, I did not have to serve any time in jail. David was able to convince the judge to grant me volunteer community serve as punishment and I could not be more grateful.

I was charged with a DUI and due to a prior DUI conviction, I was faced with the harsh reality of serving significant time in county jail. Without a doubt, I was worried and scared. I hired the law firm of Wallin and Klarich and my attorney David R. Cohn quickly got to work in resolving my case with the best possible results. I was facing 60 days or more in county jail, and Mr. Cohn was able to not only get my jail sentence reduced but able to put off and delay my date to serve my jail time. I am self employed and it’s financially important to my business that I maintain my responsibilities and satisfy my contractual obligations to my clients. I was facing serious financial hardship and things were finally to turn around. Mr. Cohn understood that it was extremely important that I satisfy my business clients and complete my contractual obligations prior to serving my jail sentence. I am grateful for Mr. Cohn’s hard work and dedication to my case and he is an amazing attorney and person.

I was verbally assaulted with a friend outside a taco shop in Los Angeles County. In fear of our safety, I went to my car and pulled out a gun I use for security at work and shot one of the assailants. I was arrested and charged with Attempted Murder and was facing LIFE in prison. I hired Wallin & Klarich to represent me. Wallin & Klarich worked aggressively to build my defense. I knew I should have just left the scene when I got in my car to get my gun as I had time to do so, but I wasn't of my right mind at the time and just responded to the verbal assault in the manner I did. I was willing to accept some responsibility but not LIFE in prison! In the end, Wallin & Klarich attained an offer to plead to assault with a weapon and be placed on PROBATION! I snapped that up right away and have been home enjoying my wife and children ever since. Wallin & Klarich gave me my family back. Thank you.

Attorney David R. Cohn is by far one of the best federal and criminal defense attorneys in California. His ability to understand the needs of his clients combined with his experience and superb knowledge of criminal laws and procedures, make attorney Cohn a leader in the legal industry. It is a true honor to work with attorney Cohn, and I wholeheartedly endorse him.
