I was charged with a Minor In Possession and a Minor in Consumption earlier this year. Lindsey told me exactly what I needed to do to be able to keep my license and get these cleared off my record. With her help, both charges were completely dismissed and I didn't lose my license, and I did not need to step foot in a courthouse because she took care of everything. I would definitely recommend her to any college students looking to get rid of these kinds of tickets.

Absolutely the best lawyer we have ever found! Our son was stuck in jail weeks after he was allowed to leave and attend a residential treatment program. No programs pick you up from jail and you cannot leave jail until you find a program to go to. Our old attorney said it would take weeks to change his sentence to allow him to apply in person to a program and cost $$$$$$. Called Lindsey on a Thursday. And with just a few calls got him out only 7 days later into the program we wanted him in. And didn't cost $$$$. She cares, is very responsive and knows what she is doing. I sure hope we don't need her again. But if so we know she will take care of our son as a person. She is a very caring and a fair person !

Lindsey worked tirelessly to help us through this process and hit the “Grand Slam” we were looking for. She works as hard for her clients as much as she cares for them. We would recommend her to anyone that needs help or guidance with legal issues in the future.

Everybody makes little mistakes under pressure. My mistake could have cost me thousands of dollars, stained my permanent record and/or landed me in jail or with a hefty amount of community service. I was charged with a petty theft misdemeanor after lifting a valid registration sticker off another vehicle to buy time while I saved for mine. After being pulled over and detained, I was released the night of my run-in with the cops. Then, after some research, found out that my quick, thoughtless crime could've landed me in jail for up to a year. With a little help from the Good Lord, I found myself on the phone with Lindsey after dialing an attorney referral hotline on the SD Supreme Court website.
Lindsey is professional, enthusiastic, caring and honest in her work efforts. She has genuine concern for her clients as was made apparent to me through her immediate interest in me, my job, my plans for the future, etc. She was willing to consult with me and answer a number of questions I had (all without a single mention of money). Most importantly for me, was her flexibility in her final rate. She was willing to negotiate a final cost for her services, one that I could actually manage.
In the end, my case was dismissed completely. No fine. No community service. And most excitingly, no jail or scar on my record. I would recommend Lindsey Mercer very highly.

Given the circumstances under which we had to hire Lindsey I have to say that is was a pleasure having Lindsey represent our son. She clearly explained how she would represent our son and what the most likely outcome would be. As it turned out she was spot on and we felt she did an excellent job. I would thoroughly recommend her.

I had received a Minor in Possession ticket from a police officer in San Diego. I was 20 years old, and felt that the ticket was ridiculous. After calling Lindsey, she did a phenomenal job working with me and the courts to ensure that my license would not be taken away for a year (which is the standard for receiving an MIP in California). I would highly recommend her for anyone dealing with that type of case, or anything similar.

Lindsey was extremely professional and knowledgeable about the law, system and court personnel. She made herself readily available for any questions, no matter how small, and fought hard for fair treatment of my case. I would highly recommend Lindsey.

Lindsey kept in contact with me and was reliable and always available to help out. She successfully got my case dismissed after I completed my community service hours. I can't thank her enough for helping me with my case.

She alleviated lots of my anxiety due to being charged with a misdemeanor traffic citation. I had never been charged with such a serious citation before. Procedure and fees were thoroughly explained and phone calls were returned in a timely manner. She had a pleasant and professional business manner. I was able to put my trust in her after a few phone conversations and felt that she was very knowledgeable about the situation I was involved in.
