Eric knows how to handle your case from the first interview forward. He has a great legal mind and always attacks the case aggressively on all fronts, by first conducting a thorough investigation. He is a seasoned negotiator and will negotiate you a great deal if you do not want to risk a trial. If you do go to trial, he has the experience you need. I have been in the trenches with Eric in multiple jury trials, and he does not flinch. He will give you 100%.

I was in a situation where all was to be lost, including my sanity as Georgia had a hold on my license from 12 years ago. I moved to another state and could not transfer my SC license, meaning, I could not work efficiently. I rated Eric a 5 on everything because he kept me steady, was incredibly responsive, and knew the appropriate action to take. He got it done in 2 different courts, and I was told by a friend that knew some folks in one of the court systems who told me, "he'll never get that done for you here", and yes it was a battle, but he got it done and I believe because of his knowledge of the law, processes and the integrity in his approach to everything. Thanks Eric!

Like most people, I do not trust many lawyers. In fact, until I met Mr. Bernstein I did not trust ANY lawyers. I can honestly say that Eric Bernstein is the exception to the stereotypical greedy attorney. He is honest, sincere, knowledgeable, and thorough. I retained him when my 19 year old son was charged with possession of Marijuana on his college campus. Mr. Bernstein took the time to explain all options available to us and stood by us all the way. I cannot say enough about the integrity of this man. I highly recommend him to anyone finding themselves facing criminal charges. He will not take advantage of you and that in itself speaks volumes. His communication is professional and top notch!

Eric was extremely helpful with my traffic ticket. I was clocked going 30 over the speed limit on the highway. I was facing a rather large fine and community service, as well as points on my license. His professionalism and knowledge helped to get my penalty reduced to less than half, and settled with no points on my license. I would recommend him to anyone.

I came to Eric after my juvenile son was charges with multiple infractions, including DUI and driving without a license. Eric met with my son and I, and we immediately felt at ease with him. He explained the crimes within the juvenile jurisdiction, which is different from adult crimes, and walked us through the process of limiting my sons exposure to a severe penalty and a future with something on his record. Eric had several suggestions of things my son could do to help his case, and followed up frequently to see how we were coming with getting everything completed. I think that Eric's nature is one of being supportive, yet professional, and my son really looked up to him and wanted to please him as much as he did his parents. I cannot speak highly enough about Eric and feel that anyone faced with a DUI, or any criminal matter could count on him to get the job done.

Mr. Eric Bernstein was very professional and he treated us like family . Once we contacted him within 24 hours he contacted us and proceeded to start handeling our case with urgency. He was honest and fair I would recommend him to all my family and friends.

Hired Mr. Bernstein to handle an Ignition Interlock Waiver case for me in GA, as I now reside in a different state. He kept me informed at all times, was immensely helpful, and very efficient. Won my case. Would definitely hire him again.

Having Eric Bernstein as my attorney through this entire ordeal made it much easier and less stressful. He was always available to answer my questions, even on the weekends. I highly recommend him if you are facing a DUI.

Eric Bernstein handled my case and kept me well informed throughout the whole process. He's very communicative and showed genuine care in my case. Eric also always took into consideration my opinions and preferences. I'm very satisfied with the outcome of my case and strongly recommend Eric Bernstein to anyone needing legal help.
