2nd DUI NO Jail! Over the moon on my results with Ms.Bellante!
I was facing severe charges for a second dui in under ten years with an accident and high blood alcohol. The fear I had for the unexpected let me to be very scared. I called Amber whom I found on google late after work one evening. She went above and beyond during my consultation and I knew instantly to retain her! She gave me a plan told me things to do to prepare for court and reassured me that it would all be okay. With full trust in her I took her advice. We went to court facing the DA who wanted me to serve actual in custody 60 day jail time. I resulted in NOT having to serve any time in Custody in Jail as well as NO Harsh Four Year Probation. Woohoo! She was also able to get the DMV to grant me driving privilege during the first 90 days so I could drive to and from work and keep my job. I am very grateful and thankful for Ms. Bellante and think of her as a wonderful friend to me. I can not thank her enough!!

Communicative, Prompt, & Would Highly Recommend
I would highly recommend Amber Bellante as an attorney. She was prompt and responsive when I had questions and helped me through my case. Amber accurately filed with the court and handled everything for me. She was very prepared for the court date and made the process much less daunting than it could have been if I had tried to do it myself.

Best Lawyer
Amber handled my case well and kept in constant communication with me. She makes the time to answer your questions and best thing was you have direct contact with her. Got me a really good result too. I hope I never have to use a lawyer again in my life LOL, but if I did have to, I’d use her.

Sacramento’s Finest!!
Look no further for legal representation folks! Amber Bellante is the real deal as she will go above and beyond for you. Her professionalism, communication, guidance, and attention to detail, were always spot on from the beginning to the very end… Amber got my DUI reduced to Wet Reckless, I was looking at 52 days for possession + accident which got dropped, so she fought it down to 0 days, not having to do any time, work project, or even house arrest! She also got me out of 3 years probation knocked down to 1 year informal probation. So my fine was next to nothing when Amber was done with them! She truly was the angel on my shoulder and I can’t thank her enough. Do yourself a favor and stop looking for other attorney’s. Give Amber Bellante a call and she will take care of you. You’ll be saving yourself a whole lot of time, heartache, and stress. Trust me.

Outstanding Performance and Service
The Law of Amber treated me and my daughter with respect and kindness. They listened to our concerns and acted immediately. Amber with her great relationship with members of the judicial system in Sacramento was able to gather valuable information to help our case.

Best Attorney in Sacramento County
I needed an Attorney for my son on a couple serious charges, since we live out of town I knew nothing about Attorneys in Sacramento county, so I started looking at Attorney reviews, that's how I found Amber Bellante, all her reviews were 5 star and positive, so I hired her to represent my son,At first his case wasn't looking to good, I kept in contact with Amber and she kept me informed every step of the way, she made a comment to me in one of our conversations, she said " let me work my magic" ,well that is exactly what she did , my son went from a possible 3 year prison sentence to a two year probation and a short house arrest, Amber is such an amazing Attorney, with a very pleasant vibe to her, she didn't have to try and sell herself to get my business, her professionalism, charisma and knowledge of the court system speak for themselves..Thank you Amber. Me and Bryan will be forever grateful.

High Blood Alcohol DUI
First off, Amber is very professional and understanding she really takes the time to hear you and gives you feedback on everything. I had a DUI with a very high blood alcohol level. She took the time to speak to me and my family was always a phone call away if i had any questions about anything. She was able to get me a complete dismissal, no fines ,no work project, and no jail time. We also won the dmv hearing which meant no suspension of my drivers license. She is very caring and a lovable person she is there for you not just a money grab. I truly recommend her she is amazing thank you Amber!!

DUI reduced to wet/reckless

From DUI down to Dry reckless - SHE’S AMAZING!
Amber was amazing to work with! She got my DUI I was charged with a DUI and got a dry reckless, non-DUI/and non alcohol or drug related case! No license restrictions or suspension, no ignition interlock device, no huge fine, and no DUI or wet reckless classes! She took one of the most horrible times of my life and made it bearable. I literally couldn’t have gotten through this mess without her!

Sharing a positive experience with an attorney...
It was a pleasure working with Amber. Amber is different from other attorneys; she ASKED questions - many questions. I left a voicemail message the first time I called Amber, and she returned the call within five minutes. She was relatable, did not judge, and did not talk to you like most impatient, insensitive attorneys. Within a few minutes of talking, I knew that Amber was the right attorney. Amber was also reliable, professional, knowledgeable, and available by phone or text. There was a communication hiccup that was quickly resolved. My expectations about the outcome were unrealistic, and Amber helped me understand why. Ultimately, the result was better than expected, and I wouldn't hesitate to call her again.

Dui case
- August 14th 2022 I was charged with a dui causing bodily injury, I called Amber Bellante and Amber agreed to take my case. I was confused and worried, amber explained everything to me, she made me feel comfortable with her knowledge of my situation. When court came around Amber explained the DA’s offer, the offer was kind of high and Amber thought we should try and negotiate a better deal and conference it with the Judge and DA. Amber didn’t only represent me with the highest professionalism but she got me a much better deal than the DA’s original offer, witch I was content with. If you ever catch yourself in a situation contact Amber Bellante she’s the best choice and will fight for you.
