Had a consultation with Dennis Lempert which turned into an hour long lecture that had little to do with my case. This attorney was very demanding and made me feel pressured to hire him after he wasted valuable time I could have spent looking for a respectable and qualified attorney in the area.
Dennis even went so far as to trash other attorneys that I had mentioned I spoke to concerning my case. This felt very odd to me and was the first red flag. On top of it all, he was extremely condescending and judgemental about my case. Seems odd coming from a guy who defends child molesters as I later found out.
His whole office and professionalism reminded me of one of those shabby lawyers that advertise on television or the radio (except way more expensive). When he finally got to his fee (twice as much as nearly everyone else I consulted) I believe he had totally forgotten what my case was concerning. He just threw in a bunch of legal jargon to try to confuse me. Nothing about this man seems honest.
Dennis will eat up your time, give you no constructive feedback, all the while patronizing you and making you feel guilty for not hiring him after his hour long rant. It is clear that his age is catching up with him and after doing some research it doesn't seem like he obtains desirable results for any of his clients.

I contacted Mr. Lempert to seek legal advice for a recent misdemeanor-level complaint I was facing in the Bay Area. I met with Dennis, and he assured me that he would take care of my case and "make it go away."
After charging me $1500, Dennis not only neglected to follow through with the District attorney and the police facility to check on the status as he assured me he would, but he totally forgot about my case. Every time I called Dennis, he was completely confused about a) who I was and b) the status of my case.
It turns out that the case was dismissed around the time I first sought consultation, but the notice took a couple of weeks to reach me in the mail. The case was dismissed based on local policy to not charge people in minor alcohol-related offenses for their first offense. Dennis, an ostensible long-term practicing attorney who worked with the DA at some point totally neglected to tell me of this policy which someone of his standing ought to know. This means that that he took my money knowing that he would have to do no work for the case.
In the end, I am $1500 short and Dennis is completely obstinate in granting me a refund.

This is an excellent attorney.
He is well known in the court system here in Santa Clara County and is EXTREMELY knowledgeable in the law.
If you knew what he did for me in my day of court you wouldn't question him.
He did MAGIC for me and ever since that day I realized YOU NEED AN ATTORNEY IN COURT.

I was recently arrested and charged with two serious misdemeanors. I did not tell Mr. Lempert as frankly i was initially intimidated by him. I will not waste time here as my review is for your informartion and use if you are in trouble and need the most competent attorney on the planet. Dennis Lempert is your man. This man cares, is extremly able, competent, has a spine and backs down from nobody, judges, attorneys,etc. Additionally he cares , anyone who has practiced for as long as he has and still has passion for his profession and trust me I do mean PASSION. I was unbelievably impressed with his knowledge, and straightford approach. I had to retain counsel to defend me and I thank the Lord of Lords I found this man. As a former probation officerI have met and worked with thousands of attornies over my career most of whom do not care, all they want is a fat check. Not Mr. Lempert. I could shower him and his caring staff with accolades all day. I simply want those in trouble to know Mr. Lempert is without doubt their best and most formidable ally. RETAIN THIS MAN AS YOUR COUNSELOR, HE IS TENACIOUS, UNBELIEVABLY KNOWLEDGEABLE, CAPABLE AND IN THE END WILL BE A FRIEND. HE TELLS IT LIKE IT IS. Choosing Mr. Lempert is a no brainer......If you are in trouble call him, trust himm and know you are in my opinion the best possible hands imaginable. All my due respect and thanks for Mr. Lempert and his caring and calming office manager and associate Nicole. He is the best and knows more about the penal code than any counselor I have ever met. I owe this man a great deal. He is the Best I have ever encountered. Respectfully, D.Thomas.

He is extremely fearless and is not afraid to stand up for what he thinks is right. He has been practicing for over 40 years and he knows the law better than many judges I have seen. He might not be the one to hold your hand but he will provide you with meaningful and solid defense. If you need a criminal attorney Dennis Lempert might be amongst some of the best defense attorneys out there.

It is rare or may be impossible to find an attorney who is capable and knowledgeable with professional conduct, kind and sympathetic for the situation, and most of all delivers the results we hope for. My wife and I were blessed to find such attorney, DENNIS ALAN LEMPERT. In our case we had no room that we can be misunderstood by law. In our opinion it was greater than "Life and Death" situation, where the belief and pride of being a good human was on trial.
We visited two other attorneys prior to we visited Mr. Lempert. Mr. Lempert had enough patience to let us explain the situation and our worries. First he calms us down and assured us that he will help us and nothing wrong will happen to us. Further he showed us what law can damage us the most and the chances of losing the case which is slim to none. Mr. Lempert told us don't worry so much, go home and enjoy life, and let him do what he is good at (law). I further asked him that what the possibility to have the case can be dropped before it goes to court, since it means a lots to us and also it is total misunderstanding. Mr. Lempert said he will try and in a few weeks, prior to the first court date, the case was dropped. What more anyone can ask! It is impossible to imagine for other than my wife and me that how much it means to us. There is no word to express our gratitude to Mr. Lempert.
Mr. Lampert is capable, knowledgeable attorney with professional conduct as well as kind with sympathetic approach. Unheard but true! In-the-event I need attorney in his line of law practice (God willing it will never happen) I will certainly seek his help. I would recommend him highly.

When I first spoke to Mr. Lempert’s secretary, Sandy put him in touch with me right away. I told her I spoke to others but seem they didn't want to listen or take my case for my daughter who was going to be charge as a felony case. The other lawyers I had talk to gave me bad communication and results. Then when Mr. Lempert calls me back with in 5 minutes he let me explain the situation and what help that I needed. He didn't stop me from talking and listen to every word I had to say. He then replies I can help you. I went to his office and saw him that same day. When I met him he gave me a brief overview of his background with many, many years of experience. I told him it was going to be a scary one and never had to be in this type of situation. I was scared and explain to him about my daughter and how this serious the charges were. I gave him the best of information he needed to start her case. He started the same day and continued on. He saw her at the correction facility and he received more information from her. Mr. Lempert always kept in good contact. He works very efficient, Professionalism in his line of work. He is very intelligent on knowing the law. I am glad we pick Mr. Lempert, he reminds me of Mr. Perry Mason from the TV classic movies, where he doesn’t just stop he keeps going to make sure his clients get a fair hearing. We had several court dates to go to and he was there and ready to defend her case. Now she is going to have a clean record and can go on to have a happy life. When he gets the job done, he does!!. My family our grateful to him for being there to see our daughter pull through this situation. Without Mr. Lempert’s help and concern and caring, our daughter might have not gotten a fair hearing. May our lord heavenly father watch over Mr. Lempert and keep giving you all the strength, knowledge and wisdom to help others like you did for our daughter. Mr. Lempert, thank you so much for what you did for our daughter. From the Story Family

Dennis Alan Lempert did an outstanding job for us on our Jury trial. He had a great presence and was very well spoken. I would recommend him to anyone in need of an attorney.
