  • Mark Lawrence Deniz

    Fearless. Strong. These are truly the words to describe Ian Pancer. I have known him both as an adversary and a colleague. He is a true advocate for his clients. I have seen him walk into jury trial with little facts supporting him and fighting. That resolve resulted in favorable outcomes for his client. You cannot go wrong. I highly endorse.

  • James Nelson Dicks

    Ian is a well trained and experienced DUI attorney who I would recommend to anybody who is in need for the defense of a DUI. He is trained in the standardized field sobriety tests, preliminary alcohol screening test, the breath test machine, and the blood testing machine.
