    • I recommend Ian Pancer.
    • I hired Ian 1-3 years ago.
    • Ian handled my DUI / DWI matter.
    • I have previously worked with no lawyers.

    I got a DUI in 2011 November, in December I decided to call a lawyer to help me with my case. I came across Ian Pancer. He was quick to say yes to helping me. He asked a few questions over the phone and said that I didn't even have to show up to court. He did all the paperwork I did not have to do anything but pay him and sign a retaining form. I was under the age of 21 at the time and all I had to do is pay the court fee and go to the DUI classes. I did not have to serve any jail time. Which was a good thing considering I was in the military and I did not want to go to jail. He was always informing me about what was going on and what was happening throughout my case. Now, two years later he helped me terminate my probation for my job situation. He did not charge me for doing that. Next he will be helping me get my DUI expunged at no charge as well. He is a very helpful person and very knowledgeable. Thank you!

    After a couple of beers and a fun night out, I decided to drive home not knowing that the decision would impact my life significantly. I was pulled over and arrested for DUI after blowing .08. I thought my life was over. I was referred to Ian by a family friend and after contacting him, felt immediately at ease. He reminded me that not all was lost and he'd do everything in his power to get the result I wanted. Ian combed through the police report and discovered that the police officer (CHP) had 'copy and pasted' parts of someone else's police report into mine (apparently, just an act of laziness to save time) and then learned that my blood result was under the legal limit. With this information, Ian was able to negotiate a 'dry reckless' charge---which is Significantly better than a wet reckless and exactly the outcome I was hoping for. While I will never get another DUI (learned that lesson) I would recommend Ian to anyone! He made me feel like I was his sole client by communicating clearly and continuously and keeping me abreast of new developments. Ian is an empathetic and straight shooting attorney and I feel very lucky that he represented me. Can't say enough good things about him!
    Thanks, Ian!

    In 2009 I was charged with a DUI and thrown in San Diego County jail. At that time I also had some outstanding warrants and was held without bail. My mother , who lives in Texas, called one of the Catholic churches she goes to in town when she visits. She asked if they could recommend a lawyer and they told her to contact the law offices of Ian Pancer. Let me tell you, I am so glad she called. As soon as she did Mr. Pancer had one of his representatives come down and assure me everything was moving smoothly and to just sit tight. Ian worked so hard for me and my family. I was released and never had to step foot in court after that. Ian did it all and truly defended me. Granted my BAL was high, and I was expecting to get the worst sentence. He really did a great job and I received the lowest possible sentence, thanks to Ian. He is completely professional and has a great demeanor. He is very easy to talk to and has nothing but your best interest in mind. If you need a great all around lawyer who is truly going to be on your side, this is your man. Thanks Ian.
