About The Firm

GIVELLE LAMANO is a criminal defense attorney who believes that one bad act should not ruin a person's life or define who they are. Her goal is simple - get the charges dismissed and help clients avoid legal trouble in the future. Ms. Lamano represents people from all walks of life including gang members in prison appealing their life sentences to first time offenders who have never been arrested. She takes a more holistic approach to criminal defense by getting to know why a person was arrested in the first place and what factors contributed to that arrest or allegation. 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.
