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.
