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 started my journey as an attorney by learning from some of the best and most experienced lawyers in Kansas. This has allowed me to flourish 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. Later, I graduated from the University of Kansas School of Law, where I earned my J.D. I love being an attorney and representing my clients. Additionally, I occasionally serve as pro tem judge in Johnson County District Court. I especially enjoy filling in for judges when they go on vacation or get sick.

My Philosophy: Client-Centered and Results-Driven Service

I only focus two areas of law: criminal defense and car accidents. Over my career, I have defended hundreds of clients with felony or misdemeanor charges. I have defended at jury trials, bench trials, suppression hearings, pleas and more. I have also developed a knack for advocating on behalf of those injured in car accidents in the Johnson County area. 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 court room. I am not complacent with settlements and bargains in my cases if I believe there is more that can be done.

I am focused on client-centered service and always put my client's needs 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.
