Experienced Attorneys in Olathe, Kansas We Take Pride in Establishing Solid Working Relationships with Our Clients

Attorney Jerry L. Wallentine Jr.

Committed, Aggressive & Professional Legal Representation

Experience is the key to a successful legal career. I began my journey as an attorney learning from some of the best and most experienced lawyers in Kansas. This provided me the knowledge and abilities to succeed as a private criminal law attorney in Olathe. I graduated from MidAmerica Nazarene University in 1995 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Business Administration. I later attended the University of Kansas School of Law, where I graduated with my J.D. I love being an attorney and I take great pride in representing each of my clients.

Additionally, I occasionally serve as pro tem judge in Johnson County District Court. I especially enjoy this opportunity to serve the judicial system and see issue from another vantage point. Such vision has helped me serve my clients better.

My Philosophy: Client-Centered and Results-Driven Service

I focus on just two areas of law: criminal defense and car accidents. In the span of my career, I have represented hundreds of clients with felony or misdemeanor charges. I have provided aggressive representation at jury trials, bench trials, suppression hearings, pleas and more. I also take a special interest for advocating on behalf of those injured in car accidents in Kansas or Missouri. For the last several years, we have been especially active and focused on helping many clients recover significant funds in their personal injury cases. Whenever I take on a case, I adopt the responsibility to protect my clients' rights and interests. I will prepare your case for trial regardless of whether or not we choose to take it to the courtroom. I am not complacent with settlements and bargains in my cases if I believe there is more that can be done.

I prioritize client-centered service and always put the needs of my client first. Prior to pursuing a career as a lawyer, I was a persuasive professional speaker for 10 years. As a result, I have honed my skills to become a dynamic trial attorney.
