So I got DUI in a Private underground parking lot. I literally drove 50ft from one parking spot to another in order to avoid an altercation that my friend was getting in. The police were called and I was behind the wheel and therefore I was arrested while parked. I immediately went online and review several DUI attorney's in the San Diego area and Mr. Ganci had several great cases that were reduced but the actions were much more severe than mine. This was my first traffic infraction ever and given the location of the DUI I assumed after speaking with Mr. Ganci for the initial interview that my chances of getting my sentence reduced were great. Not so. Not so at all. I paid $5232.00 for nothing. The DA one reduced my community service but everything else was maxed out. I could've kept my money and plead guilty and probably fared better. I understand attorney's don't guarantee outcomes, but with the circumstances and my super clean driving history, you'd think an attorney could do something for you besides just show up in your absence; that's exactly what I paid for... I'd strongly recommend you look elsewhere.

We hired Eric shortly after our son was arrested for DUI. He was recommended to us highly by a lawyer friend, and we were very satisfied with the representation he provided. At the outset, he explained very clearly the strengths and weaknesses of our case and gave a very realistic assessment of what he might be able to achieve for us. We did not feel any pressure to accept his recommendations at any time. He told us what information we needed to provide him as well as what appearances our son would have to make. He shared with us his findings as the case progressed. The process was very complicated — we don’t know how we could have managed to navigate all the appearances without competent professional help. In the end, he successfully negotiated a plea deal that won us concessions. We are very satisfied.

Getting a DUI is by far the most stressful and heart wrenching ordeal one can go through. Before i consulted with Eric, i was facing an underage DUI charge with a BAC level two times the legal limit along with a suggested speeding enhancement that would carry a mandatory jail sentence of 60 days minimum if convicted. I was referred to Eric by a close family member, and was told of how great he was at his craft. After a short a phone consultation i was convinced Eric was the one i needed on my side! Eric Ganci is the BEST option if you are looking for an attorney to DEFEND you after your DUI/WET and Reckless charges. Eric specializes in DUI cases and is the ONLY attorney in San Diego that is trained in DUI blood testing and because of that he is the person you want defending you in court! Eric was able to get my temporary license extended slightly more than the DMV had offered so that he could obtain more information about my BAC level that could help my case and so i could still go to work and school during this ordeal which right off of the bat freed up much of my stress. During my entire case Eric had constant communication with me and was always extremely informative about the defenses we were going to use and what we could realistically expect to be dropped from the court. After my first arraignment i was facing: 60 day jail sentence (speeding enhancement), having to put an IID (Breathalyzer) in my vehicle for 1 year, and large amounts of public service paired with longer 6 month DUI class because of the enhancement and my BAC. In the end Eric was able to get the enhancement dropped, settle for a standard DUI charge, (rather than a DUI charge for blowing over .08 which if plead to could affect you drastically if god forbid you received another DUI in a different state) , 3 days of public service (which was unheard of, most people i hear have the amount in double digits around 14) , along with the standard first time offender dui course and license suspension! I can't tell you happy I am to have been able to have the privilege of having Eric on my side. Eric is extremely great and supportive throughout the entire process. He is in constant contact with you and is an encyclopedia of information for anything relating to a DUI! His vast knowledge will help your case and provide you with valuable information that can help you know your rights if you are facing these charges. In conclusion Eric is the BEST in his field, and i will be contacting him again when the time comes around to expunge this charge because he is simply the best and most attentive to detail attorney for your case!

Getting a DUI is one of the absolute scariest things I've ever experienced in my life. I have no criminal history what so ever, a well respected career and a family that has been by my side from the very start. When a friend referred me to Eric I was so worried because I knew I stood to loose everything. I was extremely depressed it feels like a very low time in your life!!! But.... Eric keeps constant contact with you, he's very attentive, he responded back to me within hours every time!!! It was battle time in the court room and every time I felt like there was no way this would be resolved not unless I took it to trial. I knew that's one thing I didn't want to do. Let me say, Eric does his research, he's very knowledgeable, he cares and he is absolutely amazing. He got a couple of my charges dropped, charges that would have been life altering and we settled with the best possible outcome. I just want to say thank you so much from the bottom of my heart you are truly a smart and intellectual human being. You made this experience not be so painful Eric, and with that I'm thankful. You're a gem and I truly value your knowledge in this whole ordeal.

I was beyond stressed out when I got my DUI on New Year's Eve for being almost 3 times the legal limit. As soon as I was out on bail I was researching DUI lawyers and Eric popped up with amazing reviews on multiple sites. I had friends tell me I should just go with a public defender but I'm glad I didn't. He is beyond knowledgeable in this field and works with you ever step of the way and then some. I couldn't be happier with all that was done for me and the deal that was made for my case.

I was facing a 3rd DUI with a BAC of .20 (within 10 years). I sought advice, met with a couple different attorneys... one even had me meet with an assistant (not the attorney) for a scheduled meeting? Didn't stay for that one. I was referred to Eric by an acquaintance.
First phone call to the last line of communication- everything was clear and concise. Everything was on the board through it all. Eric was superb in committing his attention and work to my case and delivering the best possible outcome.
We settled with it being a 2nd offense. There are duties I must fulfill for the court, as expected, but nonetheless- no jail time, no public work... CPAC for 5 months and a Behind the Caution Tape Class. (DMV has their own obligations I must also fulfill.)
Overall, I'm extremely pleased and comforted knowing it all turned out alright and it's not the 'end of the world,' as it almost seemed so in the beginning.
I highly recommend Eric!

Needless to say after getting my DUI in December and going to jail for the first time in my life, I was absolutely terrified. Eric came highly recommended through a friend and I couldn't be happier. He immediately answered my call, walked me through the process, and was kind all the while. He's honest with you and is always a phone call, email, or text away. I felt reassured throughout the entire process and would recommend him to everyone.

I recently got a dui and another big misdemeanor on top of that. I was really worried through this whole process until I called Eric. He was always very responsive to my phone calls and emails, and promptly answered my questions no matter how small they may have been. He is one of the smartest people I have ever talked to and knew so much about my bloodwork and the DUI case in general and the science behind it which was impressive. He knew exactly what to present to the DA and got my DUI charge reduced, and got my additional charge completely dropped. I couldn't be happier with Eric Ganci.

I hired Eric Ganci to represent me on my DUI case based on the many excellent reviews on this site. I am so glad I did. Like many of his clients, I found myself facing a potential DUI conviction with major implications to my job and career. Eric patiently walked me through all of the possible outcomes and the full implications of each outcome. Together, we determined that, for my situation. a I needed to get the charge down to a dry reckless.
At the outset, he thoroughly explained all of the possible ways we could win and told me what to expect at every step. The process took a long time as Eric pursued each possible option. At each step, he fully explained the procedure and result while patiently answering my questions. He was incredibly responsive, always calling me back on the same day for the dozens of calls I made to him, and always working around my schedule.
Despite his best efforts, it appeared that we had exhausted all of the options for avoiding trial. Then Eric suggested that if we brought on an expert witness we might be able to convince the prosecution that this was a losing case for them. It worked! The prosecution offered the dry reckless the next time he met with them, avoiding the risk of trial.
I had one other relatively minor issue come up at the end of the case. For some unknown reason, the court issued a zero tolerance alcohol driving restriction. I was very worried about the implications of being in trouble with the law for driving after having a single beer. At this point, Eric could have easily let this go given that the case was resolved. Instead, he ordered the audio tapes from the court and had to listen to several hours of audio to prove that the judge never ordered the restriction and that it was included due to a clerk error. The restriction was removed a few weeks later.
In short, Eric is smart, trustworthy, and works tirelessly for his clients to get the outcome they need. I offer my highest recommendation.
