    I have tried many cases against this attorney when I used to be a prosecutor and he was the best DWI attorney I have ever tried a case against. I should know I was on the DWI-Task force for over 2 years.

    I endorse this lawyer's work. Ernest is considered to be aggressive, hard working, and a valuable attorney by his clients. You should be calling this attorney if you have been arrested for DUI/DWI.
