Review Roger Lytel
  • The perfect defense lawyer experience

    5.0 stars

    Posted by Steve

    I had an arrest in Santa Barbara that was compounded with a BS charge of resisting arrest too. Roger Lytel got witnesses to sign affidavits, found a video from outside a store that supported my case and identified other factual inconsistencies to get all criminal charges dismissed. He worked very hard, answered all my ongoing concerns over the weeks we worked together and really did an outstanding job. I can’t recommend Roger Lytel enough – his fees were fair, the time he spent on my case was significant and I honestly felt less stress; in fact, my stress was pretty much relieved once I hired him.

    I selected Roger Lytel from reviewing Avvo criminal defense lawyers. What was suspicious about some of the other competing lawyers with over 100 client reviews is almost all those reviews were from last year during a two month period, which was suspect. Nonetheless, Roger was the only one I found that had the Avvo “Client Choice” award for 2016. That said, I didn’t just go by reviews - I also considered experience, Avvo 10 rating attorneys, types of cases won and types of attorney awards. For example, Roger had the most awards than any of the other attorneys. Regardless, I selected two attorneys to interview and I liked Roger the most and thankfully hired him.

    Let's just say that numerous charges filed by DA, cops cooked.their books and made false statements. Roger Lytel annihilated their case, whereupon I leaped with joy about getting a clean slate. A couple charges were very serious and I was sweating it. Go with a winner and don't stress it - Lytel is a badass lawyer.

    Roger Lytel was simply superb in his legal defense of my DUI and conceiled weapon in car charge (hey, forgot it was there). He got the weapon charge dismissed and the DUI knocked down to wet reckless. No jail, reduced fines, reduced alcohol classes, etc. He spent mucho time with me to get all his defense ducks in a row. Thanks so much Roger!

    Mr. Lytel was a,seasoned professional from the time he answered the phone to when he concluded my case with most chat largest dismissed and one reduced to a mere infraction (which is like only load noise violation). Honestly, I can't thank him enough. It was able uphill battle, but he pulled it off. I am pumped!

    Lytel did an amazing legal defense for felonies / reduced charges, lower fines, no jail time and no felony on my record. I don't always make the best choices, but Lytel was the best I have ever made as my lawyer selection.

  • Best Lawyer in SB

    Best lawyer ever. Didn't even need evidence. Walked into the courtroom and told those dumb ass prosecutors and judges what was up.

    We beat the charge and got beers after.

    Both attorneys with Lytel & Lytel, LLP worked with me and I felt as though I got two for one deal. They spent enormous amount of time advising me on what I need to put together on my side for a strong case (get witness affidavits, work testimonials about my character, etc.) and then used the evidence flaws in the DA case for me to essentially walk. THANK YOU, THANK YOU !!

    I am so lucky that I asked around and you came up twice as the BEST! I also appreciate my student discount - be sure to ask for that. I knew you guys had all this Super Lawyer and Top 1% stuff going on for awards, but I was surprised how much you emotionally invested in me :)

    I highly recommend Roger Lytel for any and all of your legal needs. When it comes to legal counsel in Santa Barbara Roger is the best. He is professional and experienced. He handled my case beyond expectations. Roger represented me well at 100%. He provided me the greatest service by my never having to step inside a courtroom once. Roger covers all the details and will walk you through the steps and requirements. If something is not possible he will advise as such. For me the result of my case ended favorably, and all credit goes to Roger.

    You would be well served to hire Roger as your attorney and hard pressed to find anyone better than Roger in all of Santa Barbara. He is an upstanding attorney with excellent legal ethics. I am grateful for his work and service.

  • Mr. Lytel was my savior

    I found Mr. Lytel on edhat lawyer reviews, along with other attorneys I interviewed. I selected him since he was also highly rated when I searched his background on google, I really liked him when we met & he gave me straight talk. He did everything in his power to help my case and that resulted in a misdemeanor vs. the two felonies. He built up a strong case to take to the DA and even switched DAs since the original DA was a hard ass. Lytel was preparing to go to trial, but the new DA worked with us (given Lytel's case presented) and finally offered a 'no felony' option. Thank God. His prices are fair and he works very hard for his money.

    Roger Lytel is hard charging, thorough and fairly priced. The DUI and other charges were removed from my record for a number of reasons, which including him challenging procedures, re-testing, probable cause, etc.
