How Yhezel A. Vargas, Esq. Can Help You in Your Criminal Case

Yhezel A. Vargas, Esq.

Yhezel A. Vargas is excited to have joined Wallin and Klarich to fight hard to protect the criminal record and freedom for our clients.  Before joining our law firm Mr. Vargas was a successful Deputy District Attorney for 5 years. As a prosecutor, he worked in several specialized areas, including internet crimes against minors, juvenile crimes, drug trafficking, mental health, and a wide variety of other serious criminal matters.

Following his work as a prosecutor, Yhezel decided to become a criminal defense attorney because he felt as though it is the best way to help people protect their rights, face the overwhelming power of the State, and navigate the complexities of the criminal justice system. Being a native Spanish speaker, Yhezel enjoys helping clients that are facing the double challenge of navigating the justice system when English is not their first language.

As a former prosecutor, Yhezel has the highest level of knowledge as to how to obtain the best result possible for you or your family member when facing a criminal charge.

Mr. Vargas was born in Mexico and immigrated to the United States as a teenager. Eventually, Yhezel graduated from law school at the University of Illinois. He looks forward to aggressively defending our clients at Wallin and Klarich who are facing criminal charges in California.
