As a person with no previous issues or problems with the law, I was petrified when I needed to go to court for a DUI charge. I knew that I needed a lawyer with experience, one that had a record and knowledge around the court room to provide me the best opportunity to get the best options available. I will admit that i searched and searched and many paths led me to Eric Bernstein, I spoke with several lawyers but I felt the most comfortable with Eric and my gut told me to hire him. Eric was very attentive to my situation, he advised me well, he was always available when i needed to reach him, whether via email, text or a call. Eric has a lot of experience when it comes to the court system and I saw that from the very beginning, he was very strategic about the approach on the situation based on the research that he did. From the beginning he was very direct with his instructions, provided me with the different scenarios that my case could go and never over-promised anything, which i appreciated. As a result of all the hard work, I was able to get my DUI reduced to a Reckless driving and I got to keep my license!! Based on his work ethic, strategy and results, I wouldn't think twice before hiring Eric, he proved to be one of the top lawyers in town and his reputation precedes him.

I fired my 1st lawyer after paying 2k due to poor communication and referring to me as "just a common person". I'm finding myself repeating key details in the timeline that Erick hasn't seemed to grasp. Initial email to me was "do community service, AA and evaluation, as this often leads to dismissal or reduction in charges before arraignment or verdict"
Now, it's "do those things and it may help, though I'm not saying it'll be reduced to a non dui"
If I fail to get him to do a 110% thorough investigation and brainstorming, then I'll have to go to Sullivan or Bubba Head. I don't understand where growing up in affluent east cobb, no criminal history, non smoker, non drinker, non illegal drug user, co owner, formet manager, good credit score, and driving a small box truck non cdl at age 37 makes me a poor character.

Eric Betnstein was very helpful and dedicated to helping me with my DUI for Marijuana. He was very experienced with my case and it showed during the pre- trial and during negotiations. He was able to get me a conditional discharge which would allow me to get it removed from my record if probation limits are met without any violations. He was very efficient with communication on my case. He was very accessible whenever I had a question. I highly recommend him to anybody going through a DUI or DWI.

Eric Bernstein, by far one of the best lawyers I've ever had. He was not only able to keep me out of jail on 2 separate occasions, but got my charges dropped down as well. If not for Mr. Bernstein I would've been in a world of trouble! If I could give more than 5 stars I would, because his work & genuine care for his clients is definitely A1.

Eric Bernstein is One of the best lawyers I know.. I was charged with a DUI last year December with other misdemeanor tickets on top (3) ..it was such hard time In my life.. The embarrassment and devastation of facing life again was too much.. I goggled lawyers in ATL and I happened to just get pulled towards him.. The best part was I got a free consultation first. And finally I won the case. With all the other tickets dismissed.. Eric had to go out of his way to defend me at my Job (Medical field) .. Trust me you will not regret it.. Finacial wise he will work with you.. All I can say right now is many thanks to him.. My life is back on track. Thanks again Eric. Keep up the good work.

Eric is hands down one of the best attorneys in Atlanta. I could've faced jail time and so much more. He fought for me and got my case bound over to the state court where we entered a plea of guilty but with very little penalties.

I had very little faith in my chances of avoiding a DUI charge. My car was propped up on a ledge, I had just departed from partying with friends and three police officers were behind me. A night of "FUN" quickly evolved into one of the worst nights of my life. I researched attorneys which lead me to Mr Creal's firm. After I saw his genuine concern for my well-being I chose to follow-up on his referral to Mr. Bernstein. Mr. Bernstein proved to be very knowledgeable of Georgia DUI law and determined to get me the best possible outcome. I requested that Mr. Bernstein help me get my DUI charge reduced to a Reckless Driving. Not only did he get my DUI charge reduced to a Reckless Driving, but he also assisted me in a plea of Nolo Contendere to the Reckless Driving charge, resulting in no conviction of DUI or Reckless Driving. No trial, no conviction and no jail-time.

I hired Eric to represent me in my DUI first offence in 2016 in Atlanta. I immediately felt like I was in good hands as soon as I first spoke with him. He provided me with easy to understand explanation of terms I do not know. He also provided me scenarios he is aware of in DUI cases. I hired him after our first call.
As soon as I hired him, he provided me with a layout of our plan and over the next few months, I was pleased and impressed by his professionalism and timeliness of responses whenever I have questions.
My case was closed within six months to a reckless driving of which i was pleased.
I kept Eric's number for future reference.
