Testimonials Domestic Violence

Domestic Violence

“I would highly recommend Matt Wallin to anyone in need of a good criminal defense in Newport Beach. Along with his partners and investigators at the firm Wallin & Klarich, Matt Wallin was able to get my felony case (due to a domestic violence incident) dismissed prior to any charges being filed. This was particularly impressive given the amount of detail and complicated nature of the case. I faced the possibility of having 3 felony charges tried against me because of domestic violence, and the real possibility of spending significant time in Orange County jail or in California state prison. I am very pleased I hired Matt who was able to present my case to the DA and get the case rejected in the interest of justice before I ended up with anything on my record!”


“I am writing to let you know how impressed I was with the employees of Wallin & Klarich. From my initial phone call to your law firm, throughout both the civil and criminal trials, and a follow-up call to see how my son was doing after the verdict, your employees remained consistent in their ability to provide outstanding client support. Our assigned Wallin & Klarich attorney represented your firm with a professional and caring attitude. The attorney was always accessible, and he would always respond promptly to all of my questions and concerns.

As a parent going through such an emotional turmoil with my son and the domestic violence charges against him, I cant tell you how comforting it was to have a Wallin & Klarich staff member on the other end of the phone. At a time when both my son and I were confused and under great stress our Wallin & Klarich attorney was always extremely helpful. He kept us going and thinking positively. He always reassured me that the Wallin & Klarich law firm was on our side and was there for us.

I have been a manger and worked in the human resources department for over thirty years at several different companies, including law firms. I have had an opportunity to hire and work with hundreds of employees. I wanted you to know that Wallin & Klarich staff members stood out to me. The staff members that assisted us are intelligent, cooperative, professional and courteous. Their public relations skills are unsurpassed and they have the ability to offer unwavering support during very stressful times. Thank you for all your help.”

“I was going through a terrible dispute with my girlfriend. She was alleging that I physically and psychologically abused her. I hired the law offices of Wallin & Klarich and they assigned an attorney to handle my case. My Wallin & Klarich attorney was able to prove to the district attorney and the judge that the allegations were false and got the case completely dismissed. If you are ever in need of an attorney that will fight for you, I would recommend Wallin & Klarich to handle your matter.”



“I was facing domestic violence charges, and a domestic violence conviction would ruin my chances of becoming a United States Citizen. I contacted the law offices of Wallin & Klarich and they quickly contacted the prosecutor’s office. Wallin & Klarich arranged a pre-filing hearing with the prosecutor’s office, so we could resolve this issue without going to court. A hearing was set and Wallin & Klarich convinced the prosecutor not to file any charges against me in exchange for completing a short counseling program. Once I completed the program, the case was dismissed and I will not have a domestic violence conviction on my record. Now, I can become a United States Citizen thanks to Wallin & Klarich.”

“When I was arrested for domestic violence I felt like everyone was against me. They all wanted to send me to jail without even hearing my side of the story until I retained Wallin & Klarich to represent me. My attorney was the only person that listened to me and believed in me. We took the matter to trial where my attorney vigorously cross-examined witnesses and finally presented my side of the story. They jury took only one hour to return a unanimous verdict of Not Guilty. I would like to thank Wallin & Klarich for their outstanding representation.”

-R. D.

“I would like to thank Wallin & Klarich for their incredible representation defending me against the criminal charges I was facing for Domestic Violence. When I was wrongfully charged with Domestic Violence, I did not know where to turn. All I knew was that I was facing serious charges because of my prior conviction. I had changed so much since my prior conviction, but since it was on my record, I was looking at serious jail time. Wallin & Klarich fought the case from day one. We took the matter to a jury trial where my Wallin & Klarich attorney cross-examined all the witnesses and brought out the truth. The jury saw the truth and voted 12 – 0 Not Guilty. Thanks to Wallin & Klarich, I can move on and put this nightmare behind me.”

-E. G.


“I was charged with a domestic violence case and was also facing a probation violation. My attorney at Wallin & Klarich was able to get my case dismissed. I am very pleased with my results.”




Matt – thank you, thank you, thank you!  

I hired Matt Wallin to represent me in an alleged domestic violence charge. From the very first conversation, Matt put my mind at ease with his counsel and advice. He understood how important it was for me to fight for my kids safety due to the long history of drug and alcohol abuse my ex had and he monitored my case from the beginning staying in close contact with the DA and me. 

Im pleased to share, I learned the DA will not be pursuing charges and I can now focus on fighting for full custody of my children. Once again a big thank you to Matt Wallin for his counsel.
