If you need legal help, you’ve come to the right place.

From an attorney who is an expert in his field with full support staff to simple document preparation, we can provide an appropriate level of service to accommodate almost any budget.

1. Free Help – for simple legal problems

We provide pro bono services through free classes, workshops, and seminars.  A current list of free events can be found at www.KernSeminars.com.

2. Legal Document Assistance – for those who represent themselves

We provide Legal Document Assistance for clients who are comfortable representing themselves without a lawyer.  We help our clients save money by preparing and filing court documents for filing in Bakersfield or anywhere in California.

Documents are prepared by and under the direction of Licensed Document Assistants.  Fees are low because the clients represent themselves in court, but our LDAs help the clients navigate through the confusing and complicated process of getting a divorce or legal separation.

3. Joint Assistance – for parties who can cooperate in the process

For couples that can cooperate in their divorce, civil litigants who want the court to settle their matter, or others who wish to save costs by cooperating with their opponent, we can prepare all documents for both parties in many cases and our lawyers can make most court appearances.

To do this, one of our Licensed Document Assistants will meet with BOTH parties to the action, help them come to an agreement, and then prepare and file all necessary documents. One of our lawyers will then appear in court for both parties and put the agreement on the records in front of a judge.  This keeping the parties out of court and keeps costs down by keeping the case uncontested.  The attorneys and LDAs don’t represent either one of the parties, and can, therefore, work with and meet with both of them to accomplish their goals.  This is a reasonable and affordable legal alternative to the high cost of typical divorce.

4. Full Representation – for criminal matters and difficult or complex cases

If you retain the lawyers in our firm, you will find that they generally charge significantly less than most of the attorneys in the area even though they are highly qualified.  Roger Lampkin is the author of several books and knows what he is doing.

New edition of California Criminal Defense Motions in Limine for 2019!

New edition for 2019!


Motions in limine for use in California criminal trials. This edition by Victor VeVea and Roger Lampkin is more than 50% longer than the last edition. Trials are often won or lost before the first witness is sworn. Motions in limine are used to keep bad evidence out of trial, bring good evidence into trial, and control the atmosphere and order of a trial. A great advantage of such motions is to avoid the obviously futile attempt to “unring the bell” after the jury has already heard bad evidence and been instructed to disregard it.

Praise for the book:

“Attorneys (novice and experienced), defendants, legal assistants, and anyone connected to those accused of a crime should have this excellent book. Read it; refer to it, and use it as your handbook and bible. I am pleased to contribute to this book knowing of its significant benefit to defendants. It empowers you to understand complicated issues in criminal cases.” ~Defense Attorney Joe Whittington – TicketWarrior.com

“Criminal defense trial attorneys need a strong motion in limine practice to control the floodgates of prejudicial evidence prosecutors seek to admit at trial. This book is a great place to start for the novice and experienced practitioner alike.” ~Trial Attorney T. Alan Rogers

“Actually, this is as good as I’ve seen it regarding federalizing objections… you put a lot of effort into this… and you are trying to be specific, so I think that’s good…” ~Judicial comments at trial in People v. Xavier Harris

“Great motions in limine, such as those you’ll find in this book, can help level the playing field and get your client a fair trial.” ~George A. Boyle – GeorgeBoyle.com
