Givelle J. Lamano

Lamano Law Office
CEO
Oakland, CA, USA


Givelle J. Lamano is a Criminal Defense Attorney who truly cares about her clients. She has represented people from all walks of life, ranging from gang members appealing their life sentences to first time offenders 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.

Ms. Lamano received the Super Lawyer Rising Star award in 2017 and 2018 and the Client’s Choice award with Avvo from 2013-2016 and has a 9.5 ranking.  Her law firm, Lamano Law Office, is the only firm in Alameda County with over 100 five-star ratings on Yelp and maintains the same five-star level with Google.

Ms. Lamano takes a more holistic approach in how she provides services to her clients.  She seeks to understand why a person was arrested in the first place and finds 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.

Ms. Lamano is also the founder of the Three Strikes Justice Center, a non-profit organization focused on alleviating the overcrowding of prisons through restorative justice.  For 5-years, she served as a Board Member for Insight Prison Project, an organization providing services to prisoners and parolees all over California.

Preceding her criminal defense work, Ms. Lamano worked for Legal Services for Prisoners with Children, a non-profit organization helping families with prison reform and advocated for the rights of low-wage and immigrant workers in the Women’s Employment Rights Clinic at Golden Gate University.  Ms. Lamano began working at the young age in various blue-collar jobs so she is no stranger to hard work.  She has spoken as a panelist for Women in Leadership at her alma mater and spends her free time with family and two Boston terriers.
