I highly recommend Dennis Lempert. He was very very responsive. He talk to me straight forward and help me with what my case is. I felt so comfortable while I was talking to him. I felt like a father talking to a daughter. He straight forward tell me what to do and make me feel so comfortable. So if you need someone to represent you on any criminal case he's the wright one. I'm positive he will be on your side all way. He will never let you fail. He have a lot of experiences and he will listen to you and contact you keep you update on everything. Thankyou again Mr Lempert and God bless you with your good work and your family.

About

Being charged with a crime, any crime, is serious. I am an experienced trial lawyer specializing in criminal defense. I have won dozens of jury trials. It’s important to have an attorney that is willing and able to go to trial. If the District Attorney does not think you are serious about fighting your case you are not going to get the best deal. If a plea is in your best interest there are often alternatives to jail and prison. My office is located in downtown San Jose. If you are charged with a crime and you want to know what you are facing and what you can do to fight your case, please call me and schedule a free consultation. I am experienced in all types of criminal charges, including: Domestic Violence Vandalism Assault and Battery Petty and Grand Theft Burglary Prostitution and Solicitation Driving under the Influence Felony DUI DUI homicide Drug possession and Sales Failure to Register 3-Strikes Romero Motions

About

I can help with all criminal cases, both state and federal, and I have been doing this for 46 years. After law school in Berkeley, I went to Albany, Georgia and did civil rights litigation for 3 years, then on to NYC as the first staff person for the Center for Constitutional Rights, working with Bill Kunstler for another 3 years, and then back to California, working with Michael Kennedy for another 3 years when I opened my own office in Oakland. During that period of time, I was part of the defense team in both the Chicago 8 case and the Angela David case, doing all the pre-trial motions with Prof. Michael Tigar. Thereafter, I represented Dennis Banks, American Indian Movement, for 13 years, a case that went to the U.S. Supreme Court twice until we finally achieved victory. I also represented Cesar Chaves and the Farmworkers Union, as well as many other movement organizations, including SDS. I have tried four murder cases to successful "not guilty" verdicts. I was president of California Attorneys for Criminal Justice (CACJ) and on the board of the National Association Criminal Defense Lawyers (NACDL), which is the leading national organization of criminal defense lawyers. I served on the board for 12 years. I have taught at Stanford and the University of San Francisco -- training courses on "how to do it" for law students. I have lectured for NORML and NACDL, as well as to groups of young lawyers. I have testified as an expert witness in criminal law matters on a number of occasions. I have tried state and federal cases from San Francisco to New York City and a lot of places in between. I am a member of the California Bar and admitted to practice in several U.S. district courts, as well as three different courts of appeal and the United State Supreme Court. Currently, I do primarily marijuana defense, although I also do the full roster of criminal cases. I am currently involved in a stem cell prosecution (fed. Las Vegas) and a Medicare fraud (fed. in San Jose). Most cases are done on a flat fee basis.

About
