Client Testimonials

The US Attorney’s office in Alaska brought federal criminal charges against me for crimes they said happened when I was in the Coast Guard. I was already disciplined for the acts through the Coast Guard. I was willing to plead to the charges because I didn’t think you could fight the US Government. But I was referred to Eric P. Lampel, as ‘the most aggressive’ lawyer in southern California. He said B**LS**T, got on a plane to Alaska, fought the US Attorney, and after several appearances and mountains of hard work no one could ever have envisioned, Mr. Lampel got the charges thrown out! I owe my life to Eric, and for his faith and hard work. God Bless him.”
“I hired Eric Lampel to defend me against murder charges that were untrue. The Orange County Sheriff planted evidence, lied to witnesses, photographed me naked, and then the District Attorney filed false murder charges against me. My whole life was in the balance. Eric fought the whole unjust system for me and my family, held us together, and he got a NOT GUILTY jury verdict on all counts – then he sued the cops and the evil DA’s in Federal Court for violating my civil rights.
I got a 3rd DUI. The first lawyer for DUI number 1 pled me guilty and said there was nothing we could do. That was point 1. On the 2nd, I hired DUI expert lawyer Lampel. He got the charge reduced to a ‘dry reckless’, which didn’t cause my insurance rates to sky rocket, or go on my record as a drinking and driving offense. On the 3rd, I again hired Lampel, and he tried the case before an Orange County jury in Westminster where the car wreck had taken place, and even though my blood alcohol level was extremely high (.18), the cops had waited too long before drawing blood. He established at trial that they made mistake after mistake, and at the time of driving I was legally sober. We prevailed in that jury trial! I have stopped drinking altogether now, but thank my lucky stars that I found Lampel, he’s a son of a gun in court.”
