Ian Pancer from the get go was forthright and honest. When I first contacted Ian he quickly reviewed my case over the phone, at no cost. He laid out my options and gave me best and worse case scenarios of what I could expect given my specific case. Ian did not make false promises and asked me take my time and reach him via his personal cell phone once I was comfortable using his legal services. After a few calls to other offices, I grew more comfortable with Ian's honesty and decided he would give me the best chances of getting the results that I was seeking.
Ian made the entire process as simple and non-obstructive to my schedule as possible. Ian handled all hearings, including the DMV hearing and court appearances. I did not have to appear to any of my court dates until the final day where I signed the final plea deal. He kept me posted on all the deals that the district attorney was offering and his opinion of what these plea offers would ultimately mean to me. After a few plea deals Ian was able to get me the plea bargain that I had been seeking - zero jail time and a wet reckless. A short time later Ian called me with better news - on top of the previous plea they sweetened the deal with fewer requirements than what a wet reckless is generally issued.
After the plea deal was signed. Ian informed me that he would still work on reducing my probation period after enough time had passed and after I had met the requirements of the court. I was very fortunate to have had Ian represent me in this case and I will be in communication with Ian in the near future to assist me in reducing that probation period.

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!

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.

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.
