Excellent Representation
Eric did a fantastic job on my behalf. He was always very clear and thorough regarding the potential risks I was facing and thought strategically about every move we made as my case proceeded. His advice was always accurate, and I truly felt he was fighting for me every step of the way. I was extremely happy with the outcome of my experience with him and highly recommend him as an excellent defense attorney.

Professional and Effective
I hired Eric as my defense attorney for my first-time DUI case. He was always professional and responded to my emails in a timely manner. My particular situation was straight forward, but Eric was able to get my diversion reduced from 1 year to just 6 months, and he recommended a convenient and courteous diversion clinic. Great DUI lawyer for a fair price.

DUI Felony Case
Eric Blevins is as professional as they come. Facing a felony DUI, Eric knew both sides of the law inside and out, educated himself and kept up with new laws, and always had my best interest at hand. As bleak as my situation was, Eric continually made me feel better, reassuring, and repeatedly had a positive outlook when things didnt look so positive. Eric was availabe at all times through email, phone calls, texts, and replied immediately. I genuinely trusted Eric as a person and his impeccable professionalism. My case was dismissed and I couldn't be more ecstatic, thanks to Eric.

Great attorney for navigating DUI charge
We recently had need of an attorney and one who specializes in DUI cases. Our sixteen year old daughter was guilty of a lack of sound judgement and had become every parents nightmare by being stopped and arrested with a charge of driving under the influence. In the process of looking for the right attorney, our search led us to the law firm of Norton Hare, LLC and in particular, attorney Eric Blevins. Eric was highly regarded by Norton Hare whom we met with and was everything you could ask for in a highly professional attorney. He wasted no time in finding the key issues and addressing them promptly and successfully. The results were outstanding. Our fears of possible jail time, car insurance ramifications, breathalyzer mandates or even long term criminal charges on her record were all addressed and removed. Driving under the influence cases are very complex and requires a deep understanding of a wide number of issues. Eric constantly kept us informed as to all pending events and kept us out of the courtroom as much as possible. Eric had spent over ten years as a prosecutor and knowing that he has a deep perspective on both sides of the law was a great comfort and source of admiration for his knowledge. Should you be in need of a highly competent attorney in these matters, Eric should be at the top of your list. You will not be disappointed.

Minor in Consumption/Minor in Possession Case
I was charged with Minor in Consumption/Minor in Possession. Eric did what was needed to get my case dropped, with no conviction on my record. Eric is an extremely knowledgeable, patient, and capable lawyer. He is also an interesting guy and treats his clients fairly and respectfully. Would recommend.

I Definitely Recommend Eric
I could not ask for a better attorney. I did not know very much about the justice system but Eric was very knowledgeable and made sure that I understood each step of the process. I could tell that Eric actually cared about my case and I could trust that he would work to get the best outcome for me (case was dismissed!). Eric communicated very well through email/phone calls with a quick response time. I highly recommend Eric.
