    • I recommend Douglas Lipton.
    • I hired Douglas more than 3 years ago.
    • Douglas handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    The charge against me was a misdemeanor hit and run. I was very nervous and fearful, because I have never been in trouble with the law. I knew right away that I had to find a knowledgeable attorney who truly cared about representing me to the best of their ability. I interviewed multiple lawyer's and found that most of them were all talk and no action. After interviewing Mr. Lipton and reviewing my case together, i was immediately relieved. He explained, in detail, what every section of the police report meant in a clear and concise manner. He was prompt and kept me informed on a constant basis. He also comforted me and made me feel at ease. I felt like a human being, not a criminal like other attorney's made me feel.
    The District Attorney handling this matter was very reluctant to reduce the charge, but with Mr. Lipton's diligence and investigative skills he was able to pin point many areas in which sufficient evidence lacked. He displayed extensive legal knowledge and negotiating skills. Because of Mr. Lipton's dedication, experience, and professionalism, the D.A. to reduced my charge to an infraction.

    A few months back my ex and I got into an argument and before I knew it she had called the police. I ended up in jail and was arrested for domestic abuse, assault and battery. I know that it's a cliche but I never touched her and was only defending myself! A friend of mine told me about Lipton Law Offices and I asked him to contact Mr. Lipton on my behalf. Within hours his bail bondsman had bailed me out of jail. After I was released, I immediately met with Mr. Lipton and was totally impressed. He was enthusiastic and tenacious in handling my case and always kept me in the loop. His persistent arguments to the District Attorney led to the dismissal of my case. I would not be a free man without Mr. Lipton. This man saved my life!

    • Douglas handled my Class Action matter.

    Mr Lipton sued Annabell's candy company a few years back. I ate a rocky road candy bar that was infested with maggots. I've never been able to eat that candy again. It was my favorite snack. Mr. Lipton arranged for psychological help and won a settlement that allows me to never have to work again. He went for the jugular and struck gold.

    I was travelling in the San Jose area and was charged with a crime. Mr. Lipton took my criminal case when I did not know where to turn. He told me to let him handle my problems and he was true to his word. He cared about my case. His office kept me appraised at all times of developments. Mr. Lipton aggressively handled the matter without my even appearing in court. He eventually won a complete dismissal of the charges. I highly recommend the Lipton Law Offices and Mr. Lipton to everyone who needs legal help.
