Best in the city!
Best lawyer in the city!! I had 2 armed robberies sentenced to 13 years and i was sent to prison and Chet did my appeal and got me back infront of the judge and got me resentenced to 7 years. One thing about Chet whatever he says he means it he gonna get it done forsure just be patient. I appreciate you Chet you got me home early i paroled in 2020 and without your hardwork I would have been home in 2025.

Chet templeton Is a blessing !! I've hired a previous lawyer before finding Chet .. I can honestly say Chet has done way more for me in a couple months than my previous lawyer did for me in almost 2years !! Chet is going above and beyond for me and using all the resources he possibly can he's even worked after hours on my case !! He's passionate and sincerely cares for he's client.. I get a respond from him within hrs !! He doesn't sugar coat anything which is a major plus&always keeps me in the loop about my case.. thankful for him money well worth it!! Wish I would have found him sooner. When your going through the toughest battle of your life trust me you need a Chet templeton on your side!!

Best Lawyer
Chet Templeton is the best lawyer in Sacramento. He was my panel (court appointed) Lawyer in 2010. He fought hard for me from the very first day. I was facing a very serious charge and thought like everyone else that a public defender would be no help. I was definitely wrong. Chet got me an amazing deal and was ready to take my case to trial. Even today (8 years later) Chet did not hesitate to give me legal advice with pursing my career after finishing school and having to live with a felony. A lawyer that actually cares and wants to see success stories! Highly recommend.

DUI CASE
He definitely was a huge help after being told for my second dui that I would face prison time he managed to reduce my prison term to jail time which I was able to do with ankle monitor so that I can continue working . I would definitely recommend him to anyone for any situation .

Best Attorney in Sacramento
My husband was facing 15+ years in prison for assault with a deadly weapon x 2. I was given Chet Templeton's name by the One Step Bail Bonds. Chet has always been up front and straight to the point. He has fought for my husband from day one. We finally concluded his case 3 1/2 years later. My husband received 6 months jail time (which has been reduced to 69 days ankle monitor) and 3 years informal probation. What a relief. If you want an excellent attorney who will really fight for you. Chet Templeton is the man!

DUI case
Working with attorney Chet Templeton could not have been a better experience. Chet was sincere and upfront with setting expectations for my DUI case. In my case, Chet found the flaw within my charges and executed our defense strongly. I was hesitant to continue fighting my case as many people told me that it wasn't worth it. Chet advised me that he would not recommend to fight my case if he didn't truly feel that it was worth it. I was pretty set on just taking a deal but Chet put it in perspective that made sense in my case. I am forever greatful I took his advice to pursue the case in court as his hard work resulted in a win in our case.

Service
We have needed Chet’s services twice in the past years for our son’s criminal charges. We truly appreciate how Chet has handled our son’s legal issues. He’s been very upfront about what the possibilities were, I really appreciated that. Chet promptly replied to any questions we had, quickly found information and established acceptable outcomes. I highly recommend Chet to anyone with legal issues.

Thank you
I approached Chet with some unfair charges against me that threatened serious lifetime consequences and Chet kept his word from the first day by doing exactly what he said he will and dismissed the serious charges against me in a span of two months. I really appreciate his professionalism and realistic approach. I'd highly recommend Chet if you are fighting for the truth and deserve a justified outcome.

Service
Mr. Templeton did an awesome job on my DUI case and subsequent record expungement. He did everything possible to ensure that my legal process was streamlined, and less stressful for me than it could have been. I hired Mr. Templeton because despite what the circumstances looked like, he told me he had 'hope'.

Highly Recommended
In 2007 Chet Templeton, Attorney at Law, took on my case. He guided me through law processes I knew nothing about and truly worked in my best interest, giving me a favorable outcome. I retained his services again in 2016. He took care of everything for me quickly and easily without me having to travel anywhere, not even to his office. I highly recommend his law services and give him 5 stars! Lynn

Great Results
My family hired Chet to help us with reducing old charges on my younger brother's case. He was always responsive and helpful. We had a very positive outcome without incurring high attorney fees as a result. Highly recommend and we would absolutely hire him again if need be.

Excellent Attorney
Mr Templeton has been amazing, I hired him to represent my son on a very serous juvenile case . He really did an amazing job. My son had a second chance and I would highly recommend him and believe he would do an outstanding job no matter what case it is.

Fair, Knowledgeable, Understanding and Straight-forward
I had a consultation with Chet recently about a very difficult case I am fighting. This time has been very stressful to everyone in my family. But, after meeting with Chet, a lot of my stresses and fears were calmed by his feedback on my situation. It was so nice to be treated with respect and not jerked around. He gave me a realistic response and great advice. I would reccommend him to anyone.

Exceptional Attorney!
My son was appointed Chet as his Public Defender many years ago and his services were outstanding. He really cares about the well being of his clients and will fight for them until the very end with all dilligence. He's very trustworthy, compassionate, a man of admireable integrity, and he knows his stuff. Even now until this very day, He's no longer a Public Defender but an actual Attorney at his own Law Office and I've been able to stop him in hallways at the court house and discuss a new case my son is fighting as an adult and Chet takes out the time to talk and advise me on things based on his wisdom and expertise. I've never met another Attorney such as him before, he's simply amazing. He even goes above and beyond his duties to communicate with me and return my calls for advice , even though I'm not his client at this current time. This is an exceptional person and I have alot of respect for him. I pray he reaches the stars.
