Eric P. Lampel

top litigator, criminal defender and personal injury attorney
The Lampel Firm, P.C. strives to provide top quality legal advice, counseling, and representation to individuals and businesses. We offer an individualized, creative, aggressive approach to our clients’ legal matters. We are vigorous and unyielding when necessary, while remaining cooperative and ingenious when appropriate. Hundreds of past and current clients have found they can count on the resources of The Lampel Firm, P.C. to investigate every lead, turn over every stone, brainstorm every creative path, and achieve the best possibility of success in their respective cases. Whether it’s obtaining top dollar in serious injury cases through settlement or jury verdict, or crafting and implementing a complex defense strategy in a major criminal matter, or coordinating a multi-million dollar verdict in a civil rights suit, negotiating the signing of a lucrative sports contract, maintaining positive relations with the media, or orchestrating a profitable conclusion to business negotiations, we are there at every stage.  Mr. Lampel has had multi-million dollar verdicts, and will personally put his thirty two (32) years of both defense and plaintiff experience, as well as astute business acumen to work for you.

Since opening our doors in 1985, we have grown to one of the most aggressive and trusted law firms in the State of California.  The Lampel Firm, P.C. is a truly distinctive firm with exceptional lawyers and staff who provide quality service on a timely and cost-effective basis.  Our commitment to providing only the best possible client service is a fundamental tenet of the culture at TLF, and the driving reason behind our success in even the  most competitive and turbulent legal environments.


Excellence in providing legal services requires not only quality, but also breadth of coverage and creativity. And, in today’s world, this requires careful attention to the costs a client will incur. We take pride in being at the forefront of each of these areas.

The modest size of TLF ensures that your case will receive the personal attention you deserve.  Your case will be handled by one of the principals of the firm, not by a young, inexperienced associate, as is very often the case with large conglomerate firms.  Each of the attorneys has the skills and experience to see your case through to trial, and beyond if necessary. We have built our reputation for excellence through the aggressive representation of our clients’ interests and a very creative approach to problem solving.  The high-profile clientele of this firm requires the constant development of new approaches to problem-solving and a willingness to explore the limits of law as it applies to our clients. The members of TLF never back down when our client’s interests demand a fighter. We don’t make friends when our clients’ rights have been violated.

Our trial lawyers handle numerous types of civil litigation, as well as serious criminal matters. We have tried cases and argued appeals in many federal and state courts involving many areas of controversy.  We also handle disputes before a wide variety of non-judicial forums from federal and state agencies, such as negotiations, alternative dispute resolution panels, and more.

Our litigators have represented clients in cases involving employment discrimination, employee benefits claims, entertainment contracts/negotiations, insurance coverage, criminal defense, unfair competition and business torts, among many others. Many of these cases have involved millions of dollars in alleged damages. Consistent with the strength of The Lampel Firm, P.C., our litigators work closely with lawyers in other offices and in other practice groups to meet the demands and exceed the expectations of our clients.

TLF’s approach to litigation emphasizes a full spectrum of services for our clients.  Our litigators are trained to evaluate actual and potential litigation and exposure at the earliest stages, to first determine if litigation can be avoided, or, if it is filed, whether the matter can be resolved quickly and economically. Critically, our litigators think not just as lawyers, but as business men and women. For that reason, TLF’s lawyers are fully familiar with a wide array of alternative dispute resolution techniques, including arbitration, mediation, “mini-trials”, and the like. The conduct of litigation at every strategy is done in full and close consultation with our clients.

TLF also specializes in the representation of persons who have suffered serious personal injuries. We represent accident victims in their claims arising from construction site accidents, medical malpractice, legal malpractice, automobile accidents, motorcycle and bicycle accidents and defective products. In addition, we specialize in claims against insurance companies for violations of the Consumer Protection Act.

We handle civil and criminal trials and appeals in California, both in the State and Federal courts.
