Success Stories

Jury vindicates Wallin’s client!

After a long, hard work week, Mr. G., a journalist, went out to his favorite downtown nightclub, where he networked, danced, and had two glasses of wine.  An acquaintance of his wanted a ride, so Mr. G. told him that he would wait for him outside where he was parked.  While sitting in his properly parked car, with the ignition off, Mr. G. fell asleep.  His acquaintance never showed up, but a Chicago DUI officer did, and arrested Mr. G. for driving while under the influence.  Mr. G. felt this was an example of racial profiling, something he has written about in the past.  Mr. Wallin argued to a Chicago jury that Mr. G. had done nothing wrong, and the jury agreed, acquitting him of DUI.
