Attorney Sternisha is a spectacular lawyer! As a DUI attorney, I believe there is no better individual to represent one who has made a mistake. Ed knows the ins and outs of our rights to due process, especially when taking on drunk driving cases because he is a former police officer himself. While going over the dashcam footage with him, he was able to pick out minute details, such as the arresting officer's incorrect use of what "maximum deviate" means when the HGN test was conducted to check for nystagmus. Also, Ed picked out minute visual details as well, such as when the officer read the walk in a straight line instructions to me--the officer told me to leave my hands at my side. I then asked him, showing my hands at my side, "like this?" and the officer responded, "just like that". Then when I began walking heel to toe in a straight line, the officer told me to put my hands by my side. However, when I asked the officer earlier if how I had my hands placed before if they were okay, he said "just like that". Ed was able to pinpoint the arresting officer's sloppy job. Overall Ed did a great job; I am glad I was able to work with him, and if it weren't for other things that have come up in my life since the start of the case, I was looking forward to fighting with Ed on this case, until the end. While I did learn relatively quickly that Ed was very knowledgeable as a lawyer and DUI attorney, what took greater precedent in my mind was the way Ed carries and has carried himself throughout his life. Having an attorney that is willing to fight until the end, with an endless determination is the most important attribute of an attorney in most people's minds, but ultimately, an attorney that is willing to open up about his life experiences and is able to relate to his/her clients while working on their case is what I have found to be most important. Ed is the perfect-most example of the saying, "Do NOT judge a book by its cover" because his work ethic truly shows where he is today. Ed could've quit along time ago, and wouldn't be where he is today if it weren't for his willingness to excel and learn every detail in the documents he is given or documents he finds to be useful. With Ed I learned much more about life than just about how DUI cases work--"what matters in life is not what happens to us, but how we react to and handle what life throws at us!" Thank you, Ed!

Thank you so much for the very nice review. It was my pleasure serving you. In this business, clients get to pick their attorney, we don't get to pick our clients. I am glad you decided to pick me as your attorney because I really enjoyed getting to know you. I have no doubt you will go far. Your own commitment to this case and to your success not only impressed me, but the judge saw it as well. You are a great example of "doing" something about "what happens to you in life." I wish you the best of success in the future. - Ed
