Always looking out for your best outcome
Greg was always honest and upfront with every step of the process. He is prompt and courteous. Always makes it a point to answer and return calls. He saw my case all the way through expungement. All fees were inclusive and determined upfront with no bait and switch. Thanks Greg!!!

Thanks Greg, for the great work.
When I contacted Wallin and Klarich, Gregory Balderrama was assigned to my case. He and Alexander Tran did a terrific job. They started six months ago, and yesterday I received notification from the Attorney General that my many years of grief were finally over. And I didn't even have to appear in court! Thank you guys for all your effort, and I will definitely recommend Walking and Klarich to anyone needing legal expertise. --D.N.

An absolute Pleasure!
The best lawyer I’ve ever had the chance to work with. He actually cares about you and understands the trouble. Works effectively to get the best possible deal or to get the case thrown out. He’s very smart and knows what he’s talking about, I personally would hire him again.

Greg Balderrama is a superstar!
I am eternally grateful to my attorney Greg Balderrama and his legal assistant Alex Tran, at Wallin & Klarich, for successfully representing me in my Certificate of Rehabilitation being granted. During this process, Greg and Alex far exceeded my expectations in every way including their sense of urgency in responding to my questions, their empathy and their professionalism. They both ensured I knew where I, and my case, stood at every point along the way. I have learned court proceedings do not always go as planned and when that happens it can be easy to lose hope. Greg and Alex never lost hope while simulataneously keeping my hope alive. Greg and Alex demonstrated they are fighters, not intimidated by anyone but also facilitated a positive relationship with the DA during my legal proceeding. I am a firm believer that soft skills are equally as importaant as hard skills. Greg and Alex are experts in the art of knowing in which situations to utilize each. For all of the reasons listed above, I highly reccommend Greg and Alex at Wallin & Klarich if you are seeking legal representation.

Very Professional and Attentive
Mr. Gregory Balderrama handled my case in a very professional and non-judgemental manner. Before hiring Wallin & Klarich and having Mr. Balderrama on board, I was stressed out and had a lot of anxiety; but after hiring the firm, Greg assured me that I would be fine and have my case dismissed. He put me at ease throughout the process as he would check up on me and keep me up to date through every step of the process. Overall, Greg Balderrama did a tremendous job representing me, kept me up to date with all the details pertaining to my case, and especially kept me at ease through the entire process. I will definitely recommend Greg Balderrama to anyone who is seeking for a intelligent, dilligent, reasonable, and attentive attorney to represent them. Awesome Job and Thank you, Greg!

Greg is excellent!
I didnt know what to think when I first met Greg but he soon made me a believer. He did his job with supreme efficiency. He was smart and tactical and he flat out gets the job done! I am so grateful to Greg and the whole staff over at Wallin & Klarich because they worked with me through a series of health challenges and they never gave me bad service waiting for my health to stabilize. Greg you are awesome, you stood right next to me in that courtroom and made it happen! Thanks and may you guys help a thousand more that really want it! Their service and effort are well worth the little money they charge.

God sent
What can I say? This man is a God sent ...for 1.5 years I fighting a ridiculous domestic violence restraining order violation that 1. I beat originally back in June 2019 however was charged for violating it in May 2019.... found this firm had 2 attorneys before Mr Balderrama and honestly I was truly blessed and truly believe there was a God. He led me through all the steps kept me up to date on everything, explained things throughly to me and at the end boom case got dismissed. Honestly just the way that he is as a person, he truly wants to do everything to help u, he doesn't see you as just a client but he honestly talks to you like your family . This man will always have a special place in my family heart ... he is going to be going places, wouldn't be surprised if this man eventually has his own firm and becomes a famous lawyer he's that good

BEST ATTORNEY!!
I was initially doing some shopping around before I came across this law firm. Mr.Balderrama was assigned to my case and was able sit down and give me the time to hear me out and listened. He was very dedicated and attentive, always returned my calls or emails. He always had the time to explain something I didn’t understand which I appreciate. My case eventually moved to a different jurisdiction, however Mr. Balderrama still followed up to make sure my case was still good! When you go through hard times ironically a stranger is someone you have to put your full trust in to best represent you and I’m glad it was him. He’s very dedicated. His effort and time are appreciated!!!
