Hire Attorney Lampman!
I hired Attorney Lampman for a DUI case that I had in Northumberland County, in Sunbury, Pa and PA State Police were involved. I was unconstitutionally pulled over for the stop and Attorney Lampman fought for me to have the evidence suppressed because it was an illegal stop. Attorney Lampman is the most intelligent and savvy attorney that I have ever worked with or heard of in the state of PA. He works for client rights and knows the law, and he practices with his clients best interest in mind. Highly, highly recommended.

Great Legal Advice
I was seeking advice and had a variety of questions - David went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable. He answered all of my questions thoroughly and listened to everything I had to say for over 30 mins during our consultation. If you need a lawyer, he is the #1 choice.

Hired for an DUI case that was not so simple as it was being charged. After much effort it was pushed to lesser charge and better ARD terms for myself. I'm relieved I sought out the legal advice of this firm.

The Best of the Best!
Mr David Lampman was a beacon of hope to me and my family at a time when our options appeared limited and the likelihood of a satisfactory resolution seemed impossible. Not only was he able to defend me from an unjust accusation, his empathetic demeanor offered emotional comfort to myself and those I care about most. My baby and I are eternally grateful for his service and I hereby recommend Mr. Lampman without reservation.

EXCELLENT ATTORNEY
Attorney Lampman represented me in two cases and I can honestly say I never had a better or a truly dilligent hard fighting Attorney for my rights. He was able to secure me a very fair and amicable agreement to bring an end to my case. If you want honest and a reliable Attorney I would strongly recommend DAVE. His office staff is also friendly and knowledgeable. Thank you Dave.

Highly Recommended
I was faced with a number of charges including one felony charge. Needless to say, if I was convicted I would have had some major problems to deal with. Mr. Lampman took my case and handled it with the upmost professionalism. He clearly outlined the process and potential outcomes and was very responsive throughout the entire process. Most importantly, he got the best possible outcome for me. The DA declined to prosecute AND he got all the charges expunged. Mr. Lampman performed exceptionally and I highly recommend him.

Honest and upfront
I got pulled over and was subsequently charged with a DWI. As I was searching for an attorney I spoke with several. Attorney Lampman, from the beginning, was honest and upfront with what I was facing and the possible outcomes. He never promised me anything except that he would do his best to protect my interest. I ended up with the best result aside from the charges being dropped but I was guilty so that was improbable. If you want someone who will represent you honestly, without selling you unrealistic expectations I highly recommend Attorney Lampman.

Excellent job by Lampman
I hired attorney Lampman for my 2nd dui offense (highest rate). I was being charged with 9 months jail time, Lampman had it reduced to 5 days! Also a shorter probation term too. Great attorney, definitely worth it!

A great lawyer
By the time I met attorney Lampman I had three cases and incompetent legal representation for two of them. Not only did he do a great job with the case I hired him to handle, he gave me some excellent advice regarding the other two. In the end, I fired the other guy and hired him to handle everything and he was able to bring all cases to a favorable conclusion.

DUI Case
Attorney Lampman helped me with drug related DUI case. I was facing 7 different charges and he was able to knock it down to 2 and fought for the best possible outcome. Was able to get me Probation with no added jail time. Hoping I will never need him again but if I do, he’s the one I will go to.

An amazing lawyer with a great team! Couldn't ask for better.
I'll try to shorten this as much as possible. So I messed up royally and got a DUI; I then stuck with a public defender because I heard it was easier. My case was an interesting one that had a lot of "questions" around it, so I assumed my PD would look through it thoroughly. Well..No.. MY defender did not do a good job at all and I was charged with much more than discussed. After receiving notice on charges in the mail, I had literally hours to fix everything because it was the last day to do anything. I called Attorney Lampman's office extremely upset and immediately explained my situation. He and his team instantly got to work on my case AND attempted to calm me down. Within hours he had a motion filled out and personally dropped off. I spoke with him in person that same day and he set up a payment plan. Down the road: 1st hearing didn't go as planned and i was about to give up, but he stuck with me. He walked me through ALL of my options and went over the ins and outs of my case THAT DAY. And also, talked to me; wanted to learn more. Next hearing came, I got exactly what should have been given the first time with the PD. However, if it didn't, he had a game plan for every possible scenario that could have happened after that hearing. I cannot express my gratitude enough. He never made me feel ashamed of the DUI or 'dumb' for not getting all the information from the PD. He spoke to me like an equal and as an adult; not being to hard but not sugar coating anything. Every time I would get discouraged (because at that point everything was going wrong & this had been going on for a while now) he would say to me "Have a little faith in me, WE'RE going to get through this. This is what i do." keyword there is we're! He genuinely cared about my situation and wanted to help me out of the hole i dug for myself and my PD dug even deeper. Moral of the story: Attorney Lampman was absolutely amazing and I could not be happier! The whole team including the receptionist was so professional and kind. Thank you so much! PS. go with a lawyer, don't try the "cheaper route" with Public defender. Some are great i'm sure, but don't take that chance. Even though they set me up with a short but accommodating payment plan, (especially considering they had to do everything within hours) the price was not something that I had expected to pay. But in the long run, it would have been less expensive for me to get a lawyer from the beginning. And of course if you go with a lawyer, give Lampman a call first! Sorry so long!

Many thanks! I am very happy that you are satisfied and that we could right the wrong that happened in your case. It is always great getting a positive result; however, it is awesome when it happens to a client that is so worthy of relief. Thank you for trusting me and my office, it was a pleasure working for you. By the way, there’s no such thing as going “too long” when you’re saying nice things about a criminal defense lawyer. LOL. Thanks again.

Exceptional
Mr. Lampman exceeded my expectations, he was very professional and explained everything I didn't understand thoroughly, he was very honest with what each outcome could be, no sugarcoating or promises that couldn't be met, not once did I feel lesser or looked down upon because of my case, He wanted the best outcome for me possible. He FAR exceeded my expectations, he went above and beyond as a lawyer the outcome was much much better than I could have expected, in fact I don't think it could have gone any better than it did, he even went as far as offering a ride home from my preliminary because I had walked, something that went beyond his duties as a lawyer, Mr. Lampman was worth every penny and then some, I'll be recommending him to all my freinds and family

David went the extra mile
I was arrested in PA with charges the police had no evidence for, but I go to college and live in another state. I was doing an internship and juggling between understanding the case and doing my job. My internship helped me find Mr. Lampman and when we talked over the phone for the first time he gave me immediate peace of mind. He sympathized with me and made sure me and my family understood exactly what was going on with my case. He showed us the least expensive and most reliable route for resolving everything and keeping my record clean. He let us know how strong of a case I had against them and I really like that despite how much more we could've done, he put our situation and my future before everything. Mr. Lampman is an amazing and compassionate lawyer that anyone would be lucky to have.

I contacted attorney Lampman and responded back to me almost immediately. After meeting with him and discussing my case I hired him. Any questions I had regarding my case I sent via email and had a response within minutes. Attorney Lampman and his associates were very friendly and treated me with respect and I would definitely recommend anyone to his office.

Job well done.
I'm from out of town. Called several attorneys, David called first. From there he was efficient organized and we got the best possible result. David along with Alyssa kept me informed and I hope I don't need him again. Find yourself with a complicated infraction, or moving violation? Call David, you will be glad you did.
