Paul Walton, Attorney


Serving the

San Francisco Bay Area

and Northern California


Paul Walton is a California

lawyer with more than 25 years

of experience representing clients

charged with theft and other

offenses in California courts.


Know your rights. Talk to a lawyer

as soon as possible before you go

to court, even for a first offense.

You have a right to an attorney

even if you cannot afford one.

Don't go to court alone or plead

guilty without legal advice.


A criminal conviction can cause employment, immigration, or professional license problems.

With the right legal help, it might

be possible to get your case reduced

to a lower charge or even dismissed.


Most first offenses are resolved with

a fine payment, community service,

or weekend work time without jail.

If you are charged with petty theft (shoplifting), you might be eligible

for a diversion program that allows

you to take a class and have

your case dismissed. 


Old convictions can be cleared (expunged) from your record if

you have paid your fine, are no longer on probation, and have completed

the other requirements of your case.


Talk to a lawyer before you make

any decisions or miss any deadlines.


I will handle your case personally

from beginning to end.

You will not be met at court by an associate or assistant.


Initial consultations are always free.

Reasonable attorney fees.

Cash, checks, credit cards, PayPal,

and Apple Pay accepted.

Monthly payment plans can be arranged.

If you cannot afford an attorney,

you might be eligible for a public defender to represent you.
