Certificate of Rehabilitation and Governor’s Pardon Testimonials

I would like to sincerely thank you for helping me with obtaining my Certificate of Rehabilitation. I now realize the importance of obtaining a law firm that has years of experience in criminal law. The way the package was organized and presented to the presiding judge was very impressive to me.

The person that tried to obtain the Certificate of Rehabilitation ahead of us–I could tell that his attorney was not as organized as your firm is. He was denied because his attorney had not prepared him as well as your firm prepared me with testing and organizing the reference letters and other materials necessary to convince the judge that I am truly rehabilitated and a changed person since the date of the crime I committed.

Again, I am truly grateful and humbled by this experience.

God bless you.

PC 1237 | Appeals Testimonials

My brother was convicted of second degree murder in Los Angeles County. He was sentenced to 16 years to life in state prison. I hired Stephen Klarich from the law firm of Wallin and Klarich to work on his appeal. Our family was very worried and fearful he would spend the rest of his life in prison. The appeal was granted and his entire sentence was reversed. My family is grateful for Wallin and Klarich and all their hard work. It took over a year, but we finally won and my brother has his life back.

On behalf of myself and family, I would like to extend my gratitude, appreciation and thanks to Wallin & Klarich and its staff, for the hard work and diligence in obtaining a positive outcome to my appeal.


“Prior to retaining the services of Wallin & Klarich, I was convicted of statutory rape, which subjected me to automatic deportation. I retained the services of Wallin & Klarich to appeal my conviction in order to avoid deportation. The attorneys of Wallin & Klarich moved aggressively to present my case to the District Attorney and Judge. Wallin & Klarich successfully drafted and argued a Writ of Coram Nobis and Writ of Habeas Corpus, which resulted in dismissal of all charges against me. Due to Wallin & Klarich’s superb legal knowledge in my particular case, the District Attorney will not re-file any charges against me. Thus, there is no conviction on my record and INS cannot initiate deportation proceedings against me. I am grateful to Wallin & Klarich for their advice and guidance. I would recommend them highly to anyone facing a similar situation or any other criminal charge.”


Client Testimonials: Arson

ARSON: “My husband and I received a shock recently when our son was arrested for starting a fire at a state park. But our shock turned into horror when he was charged with felony arson. We immediately hired the Law Firm of Wallin & Klarich. After a review of the evidence, Wallin & Klarich had a series of meetings with the District Attorney’s office. Wallin & Klarich convinced them that there was not enough evidence to convict our son. To our relief, all of the charges were DISMISSED. Thank you Wallin & Klarich for your help in this serious matter and thank you Wallin & Klarich for being there when we needed you. Because the District Attorney’s office could still file felony charges for up to three years, we rest easier knowing that Wallin & Klarich attorneys are on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Thank you again for helping our son.”

“I am very, very pleased with my resolution of my case by Wallin & Klarich. My first lawyer, the public defender, told me to take a 60 day jail offer and said it was only going to get worse if I did not take it. I hired Wallin & Klarich and they aggressively represented me. The result was no jail. I am relieved and happy.”

“I was arrested on a warrant that stemmed from alleged crimes that had occurred approximately 10 years ago. These charges could have placed me in State Prison for up to 6 years. I hired Wallin & Klarich. Wallin & Klarich argued to the District Attorney that my right to a speedy trial had been violated since they waited 10 years to prosecute me. After the District Attorney investigated his case, he conceded that Wallin & Klarich was correct. ALL CHARGES WERE DISMISSED.”


Arrest Warrant Dismissed With No Jail Time

“I had a $30,000 arrest warrant for a DUI probation violation, and I was looking at the possibility of jail. Wallin & Klarich was able to recall the warrant and reinstate my probation without jail. What a relief. Wallin & Klarich was a good investment. Thank you for keeping me out of jail.”


DUI Warrant Dismissed After Facing 3 Years In Prison

“I was arrested for a DUI warrant and I hired Wallin & Klarich to represent me. The District Attorney wanted to send me to State Prison for up to 3 years. After Wallin & Klarich looked at all the police reports and paperwork in my file, they found that this warrant was over 2 years old. They informed the Court that she intended to file a motion arguing that my right to a speedy trial had been violated. Wallin & Klarich pointed out to the Court and the District Attorney that no notice had ever been sent to me asking me to appear. The Court did not even make Wallin & Klarich file the formal motion. The Court DISMISSED the case on Wallin & Klarich’s oral argument. I would recommend Wallin & Klarich to you if you want an attorney that knows what they are doing in Court. Wallin & Klarich took control of the case the minute it was assigned to them, as it is evident from the ruling that they got from the Court.”

Bench Warrant for Arrest Dismissed

“I had a bench warrant out for my arrest and was charged with driving under the influence and false impersonation. My Wallin & Klarich attorney immediately recalled the bench warrant and presented my case in the best light to the District Attorney’s Office. The result was a complete dismissal of the entire case. Without the aggressive representation of Wallin & Klarich I could have lost my job and been subjected to possible jail time. I am grateful to Wallin & Klarich for their help. I would recommend them highly to anyone facing criminal charges.”

Misdemeanor Vandalism Charges Dismissed

I was charged with misdemeanor vandalism and was uncertain about the consequences, since I have never been in trouble with the law before. I contacted the law firm of Wallin & Klarich and my Wallin & Klarich attorney represented me in my case. My Wallin & Klarich attorney was able to answer all my questions and explain to me the complicated legal system. My Wallin & Klarich attorney was always available to speak with me and kept me up to date with my case. Due to my vandalism charge, I was also facing a mandatory one year suspension if I plead guilty. As a result or Mr. Lee’s hard work and legal representation, he was able to get my case dismissed on condition that I complete community service. I did not lose my privilege to drive and most importantly, I did not have a conviction on my record. I was extremely happy with the result and fortunate to have an attorney who understood my concerns.

DUI and Vandalism Charges Reduced to No Jail Time and Only 10 Days of Community Service

“I was charged with DUI with a refusal allegation and a vandalism charge. I was facing mandatory jail time. I could have easily been sent to county jail for 45 days. Wallin & Klarich was able to work with the prosecutors and expose the weaknesses of their case. This allowed them to plea bargain and gets me an incredible deal. I was given NO jail time and only 10 days of community service. Also the vandalism charge was dismissed outright. Thank you Wallin & Klarich for your help.”
