3rd DUI Dismissed!
Amber is an amazing attorney, she got my 3rd DUI dismissed due to DA Lack of Speedy Trial. She really knows the in's and out's of the law and if your working with her just trust that she is working on your case! I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking the best possible outcome!!

Excellent attorney
I reached out to Amber the day I got a dreadful letter in the mail. Just by having a small talk conversation with her for a few minutes I noticed a few things: she was very professional, respectful & seemed confident. In the following phone calls I expressed my concerns to her and she exceeded my expectations in making sure that all my needs were met. She was very thorough with staying on top of everything as well as keeping me updated with everything that was going on. I also expressed to her what deal I was looking to get at the end with the case but she surpassed that and got me an even better deal !! If I could use one word to describe her and her services it would be excellent. Hopefully I don’t need an attorney again but if I ever do, I know exactly who I’m reaching out to, Amber Bellante !

Yeeee!
I was facing 2 felony gun charges, drug charges and a DUI for alcohol and drugs. Amber filed a motion and got both felony gun charges dismissed and negotiated dismissal of the drug charges! ! I pled on the DUI and got the minimum sentence and didn't do time or work project. Then, she found out that DMV was going to try to suspend my license completely for negligent operator for having 4 points on my driving record for an earlier accident and a speeding ticket. I didn't get notice of the 15 day period to ask for a hearing because they didn't have my new address but she requested the hearing and argued against me getting the negligent operator suspension and I got probation and no suspension! I am relieved because I need to drive and work. And my insurance would have skyrocketed. But I'm especially grateful that I won't have felonies on my record.

Expungement
I had the pleasure of hiring Amber Bellante to successfully grant me my expungement. The confidence she provided during counsel and in the court room was beyond my expectation. Couldn't ask for a better lawyer.

Felony Charges Dismissed
I was facing embezzlement charges in Placer County that were being held against me by Enterprise; After hiring Ms. Bellante I was able to get the potential felony charges I had been facing completely dropped with not one form of punishment. Not to mention this was far from my first case in this county. I would definitely recommend her to my close friends and family.

Absolutely the BEST!! (facing 2nd DUI)
I came across Amber on the AVVO site after looking into several other Attorneys as well and was VERY impressed by the results from her other clients. From my initial phone call which happened to be later in the evening, she returned my call within 15 minuets and we scheduled an appointment the following day. From the moment I walked into meet with her, she was reassuring and caring of my serious situation, needless to say I was pretty overwhelmed. During my entire process, in which I was facing a 2nd DUI charge, She was with me EVERY step of the way,!! After negotiations with the DA, Amber was able to keep my previous conviction off the table and subsequently I received a 1st offense with minimal penalties. I am so very grateful and thankful for her diligence, caring, and NEVER giving up on me!! She saved my life!! THANK YOU!!!! If you are in a similar situation or have another criminal problem, look no further, the best decision you can make in my opinion is to CALL AMBER!!!!

Excellent Lawyer, case was dismissed!
Me and my friend got arrested in Fairfield. My friend was speeding 103mph and was charged with DWI, and I was charged with public intoxication. After hiring Amber Bellante my case was dismissed and my friends case was reduced to a wet and reckless. She's is very knowledgeable and experienced. Definitely worth the money. I would recommend her to all my friends.
