Criminal Defense

Being accused of a crime can change your life forever. If you’re under criminal investigation or charged with a serious offense, you need an experienced legal team that will fight for your rights.  Mr. Lampkin is personally involved in all criminal defense cases, usually as lead counsel.  The firm employs an aggressive motions practice in criminal defense, and Mr. Lampkin an author of several criminal defense books, including California Criminal Defense Motions in Limine, which is used by hundreds of attorneys throughout the state, and Handbook for the Accused, which helps defendants through the difficulties of a criminal prosecution.  Either of these books can be purchased at Russo’s Books, at any major bookstore, or online by clicking the following links:

Family Law

The firm has a full-service family law practice assisting clients with divorces, restraining orders, child custody, guardianship, spousal support, and all other family law matters.  Whether you just need help with the paperwork from a Licensed Document Assistant or need a Certified Family Law Specialist Attorney to try your case, we can do it at a reasonable price, usually much lower than the competition.


Personal Injury and Medical Malpractice

The firm associates with several Personal Injury and Medical Malpractice attorneys to bring the expertise and power of a hard-hitting Los Angeles firms to Kern County.  These Associate Attorneys are lead counsel on all Personal Injury and Medical Malpractice cases, and they limit their practice to such cases.  Our personal injury and medical malpractice team doesn’t just guide clients through the minefields of civil litigation to steer cases toward maximum results, we also provide support for the emotional journey that lies ahead.



When a loved one passes, we can help put their estate in order and implement their final wishes.


Traffic Tickets

We receive many requests for assistance with traffic tickets, but we can’t be all things to all people.  Our attorneys each strive to keep current on the latest developments in their respective areas of law.  Roger Lampkin constantly studies criminal law and regularly updates his books.  Roger Grass is always up to date on the latest trends in family law, and Greg Kirakosian stays abreast of the latest developments in Personal Injury and Medical Malpractice law.  We, therefore, suggest that those in need of assistance in traffic matters consult with a firm that devotes much of its practice to traffic law, such as Joe Whittington of



If you have an immigration matter, you need a firm that really knows federal immigration law, keeps current on the latest immigration court decisions, regularly interacts with immigration officials, and really knows immigration law.  That’s not us, but we can help you find someone once we know a little bit about your case.



You don’t have enough money to pay your bills, so the court charges you money to officially tell people that you can’t pay them?  That really doesn’t make sense to us.  If you need someone who understands the bankruptcy stuff, you should contact someone who practices that area of law, such as William Olcott.


Social Security Law

Unfortunately, we neither practice this area of law nor have attorneys to which we can refer you.


Civil Rights

Too often the police violate people’s rights and those violated need qualified legal representation.  However, if we directed our attention to such matters, we would not have adequate time devoted to our chosen areas of expertise.  We, therefore, do not take civil rights cases.  We are looking for qualified attorneys that we can refer you to.


Labor Law

We have associations with several labor law attorneys.  Tell us about your case, and we’ll try to help you find an appropriate attorney.
