Interview with Attorney Jerry Wallentine
What made you want to become a lawyer?
The excitement of the challenge and the desire to help people in meaningful ways.
In your opinion, what sets your firm apart from the rest?
I love what I do. I put my heart and spirit into my cases.
Tell us about a case that you are particularly proud of:
In my very first jury trial many years ago, my client was found not guilty of felony criminal charges.
What steps do you take to prepare for a difficult case?
I imagine what it will take for a jury to decide in my favor. I also try to imagine what the opposition is going to do in their case.
What advice do you most often give to your clients & why?
Don't talk about the facts of your case to anyone except your attorney.
How do you view your role in the attorney-client relationship?
To represent the best interests of my client. Sometimes, that means helping them see what actually is in their best interest.
How long have you been practicing law?
I graduated from Kansas University Law School in 2005 and immediately began my career. In fact, prior to graduation, I was working as a legal intern in the law office where I got my legal job after I passed the Bar Exam.
Why should a prospective client choose to work with your firm?
We are experienced, take our responsibilities to our clients seriously, have won many cases, and will do everything we can to help our clients.
