I wanted to express my enormous relief and gratitude to Wallin & Klarich. My son was arrested for statutory rape and domestic battery. The allegations were extremely serious. We were concerned that our son would end up in jail and also be branded a “sex offender” for the rest of his life. What made the case more difficult was that the police claimed that my son admitted to a sexual relationship with a minor.
We didn’t know where to turn. We retained the experienced law firm of Wallin and Klarich to help our son. We knew they would have their work cutout for them. Wallin and Klarich was able to determine that the prosecution might have difficulty with proving certain elements of the crimes charges. The prosecutor was insisting on a 90 day jail sentence and a guilty plea. This would have required our son to miss a semester of school and be exposed to what could happen to him in jail.
Wallin and Klarich, after a very tough battle, was able to convince the judge to dismiss the statutory rape charge. Our son plead guilty to the battery charge only. He was spared any jail time. He has to do an anger management program and eight hours of community work service and some “cal trans” time.
Our family lives out of State and soon after our son was arrested our lawyers arranged for our son to be permitted to return to his home. This case was going on for many months. However, throughout the process whenever we would email or contact Wallin and Klarich they would gladly speak to us and explain what was going on with the case. We felt from day one we were in good hands with Wallin and Klarich.
We would strongly recommend Wallin and Klarich if your family has a loved one facing criminal charges. Going through the criminal process can be a frightening experience. If you are lucky enough to find a law firm like Wallin and Klarich willing to fight for you will be fortunate.
