If she works on your case, you don't need to worry about your case. She will take care of everything for you. She will fight for you until she gets the result that both she and you agree with. I can tell that she really loves what she is doing and she is very passionate. She truly cares about her clients. I am so grateful to have her as my attorney. Thank you so much, Givelle

Ms Lamano's knowledge, sincerity and genuineness won me over.
Other lawyers didn't have the time to talk on the phone or where more concerned with getting you to their office whereas Ms Lamano took her time to share her knowledge and expertise with me. While a lot of lawyers are more interested in your money than your case this was clearly not the case here.
Thanks again for your help!

I have never ever thought that I would need to hire a criminal defense attorney in my life, but 2 weeks ago I found myself caught up in a pretty bad situation. This is something that would have ruined our lives for ever. I called Givelle's office the day after Christmas seeking legal advise. She called me right back and gave me a thorough explanation of the entire process. Keep in mind that I don't even have the basic knowledge about the US legal system. She gave us the worst, best and likely scenario. The best part is that she was very honest in telling me that since this is my first time hiring an attorney that I should really look around and go with someone who I am comfortable with. I really appreciated the fact that she wasn't just there to get my business. Then she offered 2 other references and even connected me with them over the weekend. In the end I had my case dismissed and didn't require her services. But I highly recommend her if anyone needs an honest sincere and knowledgeable attorney.

Givelle Lamano has not only been great at what she does, but she lifts so much wait of your shoulders. She's very reliable and is always honest. She dedicates her time and effort to make sure you are not being cheated short in any situation. Very easy to talk to and won't make you feel judged. I would recommend Givelle to any one thats is in need of an attorney just how she was recommended to me. I am very satisfied with her work , she will go that extra mile.

Choosing Lamano Law was the best thing I could have done when getting a DUI. Ms. Lamano will fight for you. She has compassion and knowledge to ease the pain of getting a DUI. I highly recommended her services.

It was a stressful time. I made a dumb choice to drive home after several drinks. I thought I was fine enough but I was not. The CHP got me at a sobriety check (I can't lie, and when you're drunk, they know immediately). My bad. Boy, was it my bad.
I was in tears when I first talked to Givelle. I have never gotten in this kind of trouble, I have a family and a stellar job. She immediately had the words I needed to hear: that I wasn't an evil person. We all make mistakes. Let's get on this, learn from mistakes and move on.
At first I thought I could do without a lawyer but in California, if you have the ability to pay for Givelle's assistance I highly HIGHLY recommend it. My time is valuable, and this is a very difficult experience to navigate. Givelle and her team were able to consistently and clearly keep me updated on all the hearings and hurdles I needed to deal with. Best of all, I learned I didn't have to be present at many of these which made the overall experience far less depressing.
Getting a DUI was my fault. I can't blame anyone else. I was so glad to have hired Givelle (and she does work on a sliding scale for those who need the help) because she offered intelligence, humor and light to a very bleak time I needed to get through. Best of all, she recognizes the justice system is not perfect and taught me a LOT about how messy it can be. That's why if I meet anyone who ends up getting a DUI, I will tell them: "hire a lawyer that knows what he/she is doing, that cares for your outcome. Hire Givelle Lamano!"
