This dude is awesome. I got pulled over for DUI earlier this year and didn't know what to do. I had a really high blood alcohol level so I figured I would be SOL. There were also some other random charges on there. Erik got all of the extra charges dropped and made the whole DUI process easy for me. After the first court date I never had to show up to the courthouse again. A friend that got a DUI around the same time as I did went to him as well and he ended up getting his stuff reduced. I recommend Erik to all of my friends for any issue.

Erik is simply amazing! I was in an accident about a year ago and ended up being accused of a DUI. It was a really hard time for me and because I missed work following being in jail I was in jeopardy of losing my job. Not only did he make me feel comfortable right from the start, he ended up getting my charges reduced all the way down to reckless driving. No DUI on my record at all. I would send anyone to him, especially for the price he charged. Wonderful all around!

So happy I hired Erik. I've now used him for two different situations and an additional traffic ticket and my experience with him was nothing short of amazing. He communicated with me from start to finish, I hardly ever had to be in court, and the outcomes of both cases we"re great. I'll send everyone I know to Erik for any criminal matter big or small.

I know Erik personally and he's a great attorney. He presents a professional and well prepared presence in the courtroom. I would recommend him to anyone in need of legal services.
Tips & Advices
A DMV hearing is a person's chance to give his or her testimony regarding the arrest and provide any evidence. It's an administrative procedure, not a criminal hearing, so a person won't be declared innocent or guilty at this time. People can bring an attorney with them, but this hearing must be scheduled within 10 days of the arrest.
Breathalyzers are commonly used and widely accepted, but have some faults. Alcohol-containing substances in the mouth, like mouthwash or stomach acid, could result in a falsely high reading. Some devices can malfunction, or may be incorrectly calibrated. Blood tests are the most accurate tests.
For a misdemeanor, a speedy trial should take 90 days, but most cases are resolved in three to six months. For a felony, a speedy trial should take 175 days, and most cases are resolved in five to seven months. In bigger cities or larger population areas, felonies might take several years to resolve.
A DUI will stay on someone's record for at least five years, and could be longer depending on which state the person lives in.
Different states define felonies differently. Some common ways a DUI can be elevated from a misdemeanor to a felony include:
  • If someone was injured.
  • If your BAC is elevated to a certain limit set by law. This limit is usually around .16.
  • If there are children in the vehicle.
  • If the driver has prior DUIs​.
  • If the driver's license is suspended, revoked or restricted.
