I was charged with an OWI in Elkhart County and Eric was my first call. He was very helpful and personable throughout the entire process. I certainly appreciated his honesty and professionalism. Eric is definitely well experienced in handling these matters. Thanks to his help and guidance, we were able to have all of our necessary steps done before going to court that helped to retain driving privileges. The judge even remarked at how well the case had been managed during the hearing. With Eric's help, I was able to obtain specialized driving privileges very promptly. I am still able to tend to my life's responsibilities and my work. I would highly recommend Eric to anyone else needing help with OWI/DUI charges.
