Above and beyond
After having numerous lawyers, I wish I would have met Mr. Lampkin sooner. He is very professional, thorough and works hard for us to obtain the best results for my brother’s case.

Excellent
Criminal case. What can I say, I got caught. He got me a great deal with no jail time. I am on probation and have to do work release and a bunch of fines, but I am happy with the result.

The best attorney in the town
Victor suggested to go for Roger. I immediately hired him for my case. He is very friendly, gives all the info needed. Appeared for me in each and every hearing. Never missed a date. Result? Fully acquitted!!

Dodged that Bullet, Beat the B&*@%
Crazy ex and her new man accused me of harassing her. It was a scam to get more child support. I hired Roger Lampkin for the criminal part of the case and Roger Grass for the family court part of the case. They work together. Victor from their office helped arrange bail IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT. Karen helped with the paperwork to get more custody. Roger Lampkin got the criminal case DISMISSED, but I did have to take some classes and it took a LONG TIME. Roger Grass went to court with me and clobbered the ex. Now, she has to get drug tested and she only gets supervised visitation. I'm happy - especially with the price for such great service.

Dismissed!
I was accused. I spent MONTHS in jail waiting trial. His assistant, Victor, visited me a bunch of times. They gave me copies of some books they wrote. I almost lost faith because it took so long but everything was dismissed.

DUI Defense
I was charged with DUI and resisting. I didn't even go to court and he got it all dismissed.

Great Defense!
I was FALSELY accused. He filed tons of paper and got it dismissed. His assistant Victor is frickin amazing, but I did have a hard time getting Roger to talk about the case. Dont know why it says Taft. I visited his office (an old house) in Bakersfield.

ROGER LAMPKIN for JUDGE KERN COUNTY
Thanks much to Roger, Victor, & Wallace Investigation's. Even though my case hasn't ended in Aquittal yet. I have great confidence in you and your defense team's expertise. You are 7 steps ahead of the prosecution.

NON PROFESSIONAL
DOESNT RETURN CALLS OR MAKE CONTACT WITH CLIENT, HASNT DISCUSSED CASE INFORMATION WITH CLIENT, AT A LATE STAGE IN THE PROCEEDINGS HAS NOT DISCUSSED A GAME PLAN WITH CLIENT, MAY POSSIBLY BE A GREAT ATTORNEY , BUT NOT CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEY, ALTHOUGH WAYNE HIS INVESTIGATOR IS BY FAR MORE PROFESSIONAL THAN ROGER LAMPKIN HIMSELF, THEREFORE HE WAS APPOINTED BY THE COURTS TO MY CASE AND DOESNT SEEM TO CARE ONE WAY OR THE OTHER.
