About me

For over 35 years, I have been handling all types of criminal defense and family law matters. In 1981, I founded Wallin & Klarich, A Law Corporation. Throughout my career, I have been willing to take on the most serious cases, including defending persons accused of murder, child molestation and other violent felonies. Also, I have successfully represented individuals facing serious family law matters, such as divorce, child custody and spousal support. Zealously fighting for the rights of my clients is what I do best. 


When I am not in court, I am leading my law firm. I supervise and guide my team of attorneys, legal assitants and staff members to help them develop and grow to their full potential. I work hard, but I work my staff harder. My team understands that our firm is built upon two principles:


  1. Embracing our clients as if they are members of our family.

  2. Contstantly communicating with our clients so that they know every development in their case. 


If you are going through any criminal or family law matter, please contact me today.


We will get through this together.
