Eric Paul Ganci

About me



Organized.  Responsive.  Effective.


Eric Ganci focuses his practice exclusively on DUI defense.  The DUI process has a short fuse which requires response within 10 days of arrest, and you need an attorney with the knowledge to defend yourself in a responsive, organized, and effective manner.  Eric delivers that service to all his clients.  Further, Eric focuses on the fundamentals of personal interaction, including taking your phone calls, and always returning calls/emails within a 24 hour business day.  It seems simple, but unfortunately this is a lost art.


Many lawyers “practice” DUI defense on the side, which is a true disservice because of the intricacies involved, both on the surface, and deep under the skin.  Here is an example: if you needed heart surgery, would you see a general practitioner?  A plastic surgeon?  No.  You would see a doctor with a focused practice in that specialized area.  The same rings true for your DUI defense.
