I won't go into detail about why I needed a great attorney - suffice to say - I needed big guns and superlative expertise in a complicated financial matter. I chose Mr. Lipman based on questions posed to other attorneys - I asked them if they were in trouble - who would they hire? Mr. Lipman knows how to defend you and get the best possible outcome - .

I hired Lipman as my attorney by a soliciting letter that mailed to me in 2008. I was in Orange county, CA, and his office is in San Diego, my case was in district court in Santa Ana. He promised me that he will travel to Orange county for my trial if needed and would stay in his sister's house ( in Orange county ) to get my business and I singed a flat fee contract with paying him upfront.
We had 8 co-defenders in the case and he told me that the chance to win the case in trial was less than 20% and advised me to plea. Out of 8, 4 plead and 4 went to trial and won the case.
I had repeatedly asked him why other co-defenders don't want plea and asked him to communicate with their attorneys but never get anything back. Most of the time was his assistant answering my question.
An ethical attorney would recommend you find a local attorney or attorney that worked in the court where your case is; He was not in OC, CA and had little in any experience in OC Fed district court.
He is not a competent even he was expensive compared to my co-defender's attorneys, not even as good as public defender.
Even with plea I got the worst result compared with other co-defender who plead too, although I was not the people who got most of the money from the "crime".
Endorsements from fellow lawyers are an important consideration for many when selecting the right attorney. Be the first to endorse your colleague!
