About the author:
Roger Lampkin earned his bachelor degree from University of Texas at Austin. His Juris Doctor degree is from South Texas College of Law where he was editor of the Law Review, and where he was an adjunct professor after graduation. Mr. Lampkin became an attorney in Texas in 1973 and in California in 1984.
He has published various award winning articles. After coming to California, he was an adjunct professor in a California law school and taught a legally orientated course at California State University.
From 1973 to 1987, Mr. Lampkin was in the legal department of major oil companies supervising outside counsel in substantial litigation.
Mr. Lampkin entered private practice in 1987 and has offices in Bakersfield and Taft. He is licensed to practice in Texas, California, and Federal Courts.
His successful representation of thousands of clients has included extensive trial experience; where he learned the importance of pretrial motions and became highly skilled at preparing and arguing all necessary and essential motions.
A trial may be won or lost at the motions stage, when the "ground rules" for the conduct of trial are set.
Mr. VeVea received his bachelor degree in Math and Computer Science from Cal State Bakersfield. He became interested in the law when he was falsely accused and had to prove his own actual innocence. He went on to get his Bachelor of Law degree and Juris Doctor degree from Northwestern California University School of Law before passing the California Bar on the first attempt.
Mr. VeVea is known as a magician because of his uncanny ability to conjure viable defenses in cases that others see as hopeless, and because of his expertise in prestidigitation.
United States District Court Judge Lawrence J. O'Neill described Mr. VeVea as "extraordinarily bright person, and...an intellectual vigilante." Despite such glowing praise, Mr. VeVea does not practice law; instead, he devotes his time to volunteer work, scholarly endeavors, helping others who have been falsely accused, and assisting Mr. Lampkin and other attorneys on the most difficult cases.
Handbook for the Accused
How to Help Your Attorney Defend You in a California Criminal Case
Victor VeVea, Roger Lampkin
A person accused of a crime in California often faces three prosecutors: the district attorney, the court, and his own attorney. Heavy caseloads and too few resources force many attorneys to seek quick plea bargains with little interest in actually defending their clients.
This guide is meant to help the accused avoid becoming a victim of the California Plea Machine by teaching how to help your attorney help you prepare a defense instead of simply preparing to plead guilty.
