I was charged with felony assault...
I was facing a felony strike and seven years in prison. I could not go to prison as I was the sole person working in my family. My family depended on me financially, so I knew I needed an experienced law firm to fight on my behalf. I hired the law firm Wallin and Klarich and my attorney Christopher Lee quickly got to work on my case. I was in custody and Christopher visited me often and kept me updated with my case. Most importantly, he was in weekly contact with my family. Christopher did a thorough job in investigating my case and presenting a strong defense to the district attorney. With Christopher’s help he was able to convince the district attorney to not seek a prison sentence. Instead, I received a short jail sentence and I was released immediately as I had enough credits while I was in custody. Due to Christopher’s hard work I was able to avoid prison time and be reunited with my family.

chris lee review
I was charged with a first time DUI and was facing a harsh punishment due to having a high BAC level of 0.20 as well as being under the age of 21. I was scared and had a million questions that needed to be answered. I contacted the law offices of Wallin and Klarich and hired Chris Lee as my attorney. Attorney Lee quickly got to work in resolving my case with the best possible result. He was able to answer all my questions and communicate all the information to me in a basic and simple way. My Wallin & Klarich attorney answered all my emails and returned all my phone calls immediately. In the end, attorney Lee was able to convince the city attorney to reduce my BAC level, which resulted in a more favorable plea offer. Not only that, but Chris Lee was able to convince the judge to waive additional alcohol classes and reduce the number of community service days I was required to serve. I am grateful for Chris Lee's hard work and dedication to my case.
