Jerry "Wally" Wallentine

Olathe, Kansas





I learned from some of the best and most experienced lawyers in Kansas when I started my career. That early experience helped me to become a skilled trial lawyer. In the time since, I have helped to defend hundreds of clients who were charged with felony or misdemeanor DUI charges. I have experienced considerable success at jury trials, bench trials, hearings, pleas, and more.

Prior to becoming an attorney, I was a professional persuasive speaker for 10 years. My experience as a professional speaker allowed me to hone my skills that I now use as a dynamic, persuasive trial lawyer. I continue to enhance my skills through further training, experience, and study. I recently completed another three-day, Standardized Field Sobriety Tests training course. This course was for becoming a SFST Instructor. I enjoy knowing more about the tests administered to my clients than does the arresting officer who administered the tests.

I have successfully advocated for many clients, both in court and out, regarding their DUI charges. When dealing with a drunk driving charge you need a skilled, dynamic DUI lawyer. I can help you. Call an experienced attorney immediately if you have been arrested, charged, or questioned in connection with drunk driving.

I am Jerry Wallentine, a Kansas DUI trial attorney who fights your legal battles in court. As an attorney, I advocate for clients in Johnson County and throughout the Kansas City area. We can discuss the facts of your case, as well as basic strategies, during a free initial consultation. I utilize innovative, aggressive, and dynamic defense strategies to protect the rights and interests of my clients.

Every case is prepared for trial rather than rushed into a plea bargain or settlement. This approach leads to better results whether the case goes to trial or does result in a plea or settlement. My history as a public speaker allows me to utilize persuasive techniques for the benefit of my clients.

My practice is based in Olathe, Kansas, just across the street from the Johnson County Courthouse. I serve the citizens of the Kansas City area, including Lenexa, Shawnee, Overland Park, Mission Hills, Merriam, the surrounding communities of Johnson County and Wyandotte County, as well as Jackson County, Missouri.
