GIVELLE LAMANO is an Oakland DUI & Criminal Defense Attorney who truly cares about her clients. She has represented people from all walks of life from gang members appealing their life sentences to corporate executives who have never been arrested. She is licensed in both state and federal courts and has served as a court appointed attorney for the Alameda County Bar Association, taking on cases when the public defenders office was unable to do so.
Ms. Lamano has received the Super Lawyer Rising Star award, most recently in 2023, for her professional achievement and peer recognition. She ranks in the top 2% of over 65,000 attorneys. She received the Client’s Choice award with Avvo for multiple years and has a 9.0 ranking. She is the only attorney in Alameda County with over 100 five-star ratings on Yelp and also maintains the same five-star level with Google reviews.
Ms. Lamano takes a more holistic approach to understand why a person was arrested in the first place. By doing this, she highlights the good traits in people who find themselves in a bad situation. She then uses that information to present her clients in the most positive light when negotiating deals in court. Ms. Lamano does not believe one bad act should ruin a person’s life or define who they are. At Lamano Law Office, the goal is simple - get the charges dismissed and help clients avoid legal trouble in the future.
