How to Hire a Sex Crimes Attorney in Riverside County

However, you may be able to avoid these severe consequences if you hire an experienced sex crimes attorney in Riverside to handle your case. Just being charged with a crime does not mean you will be automatically convicted. You can hire a skilled Riverside sex crimes attorney to defend you against these charges.

Why Hire Wallin & Klarich?


Due to the serious nature of sex crimes, it is imperative that you hire an attorney who has extensive experience handling these types of cases if you are accused of a sex-related crime. At Wallin & Klarich, we have been defending clients against sex crime charges for more than 30 years. Our attorneys have developed a glowing reputation for defending people facing criminal charges related to a sex crime. Senior Partner Paul Wallin was nicknamed the “white knight for accused child molesters” by the Los Angeles Daily Journal. Partner Stephen Klarich works daily to defend the rights of those accused of sex crimes, and his advocacy has led to speaking engagements involving the California Reform Sex Offender Laws organization and the California Teachers Association.

Our successes and case victories have helped Wallin & Klarich achieve the highest merits in the field of criminal defense, including a 5 out of 5 AV rating on, a 10 out of 10 rating on, and an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau. Our past clients have praised our law firm for the work that we did in their sex crimes cases:

“I was falsely accused of engaging in sexual activity with a minor. I was arrested and held in jail on $1 million bail. Being in jail was the worst experience of my life. I was constantly harassed for a crime I didn’t commit. Thankfully, my family hired Wallin & Klarich during this time. My attorneys were able to help me be released on bail at a much lower rate and then they got to work on my case. They did a tremendous job at my preliminary hearing. On the day that the trial was set to begin, my attorneys at Wallin & Klarich informed me that they had just spoken to the prosecution and all charges were going to be dropped. Thanks to the attorneys at Wallin & Klarich for believing in me and helping me beat these charges! I have my life back thanks to you!”


“I honestly believe I would not be a free man today if it weren’t for the amazing job Wallin & Klarich did for me. My lawyer was able to defend me against felony charges. Police had come to my home and seized all my electronic devices. I had no computer, no cellphone and I thought I was going to have to spend years in prison. My entire life was crashing down so fast. Then the attorneys at Wallin & Klarich worked their magic. Rather than facing a lifetime of consequences, I did not have to register as a sex offender and I served no time in jail. I was able to keep my job and my life in order thanks to Wallin & Klarich.”


“I knew I needed to hire an attorney when I was being wrongly accused of a horrific crime. I felt that nobody believed me when I would tell them I didn’t do this crime and that made me nervous that I would have to go to prison for a crime I didn’t commit. I found the law firm of Wallin & Klarich and I knew I found the right attorneys. They believed in me and assured me that they would work hard for me. The attorneys argued in court that the evidence against me did not show beyond a reasonable doubt that I was guilty of this crime. Before the case could go to trial, all charges were dismissed. I highly recommend you hire an aggressive attorney like the ones at Wallin & Klarich if you are accused of a crime.”

Frequently Asked Questions

How important is it to hire an attorney who has experience handling sex crime cases in Riverside County?

Many criminal defense lawyers do not handle sex crime cases because of the sensitive nature of these matters. However, you should not be tempted to hire an attorney who does not have experience in Riverside courts. Our attorneys have many years of experience handling sex-related cases in Riverside courts and we know the policies and procedures that must be followed in each of the local courts. This could be of great advantage to your case.

Will I have to register as a sex offender if I’m convicted of a sex crime?

If you are convicted of a sex crime that is listed under California Penal Code Section 290 or a crime that gives the judge discretion to add this condition to your sentence, you could face lifetime registration as a sex offender. Not all sex crimes require registration though. For more information about the sex offender registry and how it works, visit our sex offender registry page.

Where is my loved one being held in custody?

If your loved one was arrested for a sex crime, where he or she is being held in custody depends on several factors, including where the crime and arrest took place. To find out all possible locations where your loved one could be held in Riverside County, visit our list of Riverside County jails. Our lawyers may be able to help you find out where your loved one is being held.

Should I pay to bail my loved one out of jail?

In sex crime cases, the bail is typically set to a very high amount. You could be throwing your money down the drain if you post bail immediately. Do not post bail or pay a bail bondsman without first speaking to an experienced Riverside criminal attorney. Your attorney may be able to save you thousands of dollars. For more information about when to post bail, visit our bail page.
