A child pornography conviction has severe punishment, and the negative stigma will affect your life beyond a jail sentence. If you are facing the charges, what law firm you choose to represent you will be the most important decision you will ever make.
If you are facing child pornography charges in Los Angeles, keep these questions in mind when searching for a criminal defense attorney.
1. How much experience does your attorney handling child pornography cases?
The most important thing to look for in an attorney is experience. You will want to hire an attorney who has experience successfully defending clients facing child pornography charges.
At Wallin & Klarich, our skilled lawyers have been successfully handling child pornography cases for over 30 years. We know what defenses to use to help you avoid serious punishment.
2. How well does your attorney know the court system in Los Angeles?
The court system differs in each county. Our law firm has been handling Los Angeles child pornography cases for more than 30 years. We know the law, the legal system and the people you will be dealing with throughout your case. Our lawyers are familiar with the judges and prosecutors who will be handling your case, and we can use that to our advantage so that we can help you.
3. To what extent will your firm be able to communicate with you?
You will probably have lots of questions throughout the legal process, and you will want to be comfortable asking your attorney questions. Communication is key.
We pride ourselves in our ability to deliver incredible service. We are available to speak with you whenever a question arises, no matter what time of day it is. When you’re facing serious child pornography allegations, the last thing you want is have a tough time getting in touch with your lawyer.

4. What can you expect your day-to-day relationship with your attorney to be like?
It can be difficult to find a lawyer that you can talk to frankly and feel comfortable around. The sensitive nature of child pornography charges only makes that task more difficult.

You will want to hire a law firm that treats all their clients with respect. At Wallin & Klarich, we will maintain a great relationship with you so that you are comfortable communicating about every aspect of your case.
5. Is your lawyer tech savvy?
When hiring a lawyer to defend you in a child pornography case, it is important that your firm is equipped with a specialized knowledge of computers and technology. This is because a firm grasp of technology could be vital to your defense. For example, there are malware programs or computer viruses that can seize control of your computer or someone could plant files containing child pornography without you ever knowing it.
Possession of child pornography requires that you have knowledge of its existence as well as knowledge that the persons depicted in the pornographic images or video are less than 18 years of age. A tech savvy law firm not only will be able to communicate with you in an easy way using technology, but may also be able to help you prove you did not commit this crime.
6. Does your law firm have the right legal experts to help you get the best result in your case?
Aside from our own investigators and technical support staff, Wallin & Klarich has a vast network of the best experts in the field of both computer forensics and psychology.
Many inexperienced lawyers do not know how crucial a psychological evaluation can be in your case. Our experts can administer tests to gather convincing evidence and testify that you do not fit the profile of someone interested in child pornographic material. Hiring the right lawyer with access to these experts can mean all the difference when facing child pornography charges.
7. Does your lawyer know the defenses to this crime?
If you are being falsely accused of this crime, you will need a criminal defense law firm that understands the valid legal arguments to child pornography charges. If you hire our law firm, you will have greater resources and knowledge at your disposal. Not only do we have a team of experienced lawyers who can help you in Los Angeles, we also work with investigators that may be able to help us prove you did not commit the crime.
