Wallin & Klarich Names Yhezel A. Vargas Newest Member of the Criminal Defense Team

Wallin & Klarich is excited to announce our newest addition to our highly skilled criminal defense team, Yhezel Vargas, Esq. Mr. Vargas will be representing clients facing criminal charges in Orange, Los Angeles, and San Diego Counties.

Mr. Vargas is excited to give back to the community in the form of legal representation of the highest caliber.  


Yhezel was born in Mexico and migrated to the United States as a teenager. After obtaining his undergraduate degree, Mr. Vargas was

offered a full-ride scholarship to attend the University of Illinois Law School. Upon graduating from law school, Yhezel decided to do the one thing he always wanted to do: help people; which is why he decided to start his career in public interest law. 

Eventually, Yhezel explains, “I was offered a position as a prosecutor, a job in which I felt I could serve my community and do my part in helping make the criminal justice system operate in the fairest manner possible.  As a prosecutor, he focused on the areas in which he felt he could make the biggest difference in his community: Internet crimes against minors, juvenile crimes, drug offenses,  as well as handling serious felony matters including burglaries, firearms, assault, robberies, arson, fraud, etc. 

After 5 years of being a successful Deputy District attorney, Yhezel decided to become a criminal defense attorney because he felt as though “it [is] the best way to help people protect their rights, facing the overwhelming power of the State, and navigate the complexities of the criminal justice system”. 

Being a native Spanish speaker, Yhezel realizes the burden that non-native English speakers endure while trying to navigate the criminal court system.  Yhezel greatly enjoys helping clients that are facing the double challenge of navigating the criminal justice system when English is not their first language.

Soon after meeting Yhezel, you will realize how passionate he is about protecting your legal rights.
