Eric went above and beyond to help me with my DUI case in which I knew nothing about in regards to how to handle it or what to do. Going through this was such an embarrassing, scary process and Eric helped to make it as painless as possible, always putting in extra time. Not only did he help me to get my charge down but helped me to get it expunged after the appropriate amount of time. He always answered any questions that I had within hours and was easy to communicate with. I could not recommend Eric enough if you find yourself in this unfortunate situation. He is knowledgable and reliable and dedicated to helping others. Thank you so much, Eric!

Eric was more than helpful with my case, even before I hired him. He went out of his way to explain everything to me, and if he didn't know exactly how to answer any questions I had at the moment, he would always return my calls/emails promptly with an answer. He never made any promises about the outcome of my case but absolutely delivered way above any hope I had. I would absolutely recommend Eric to anybody who was in a similar situation as myself.

Eric is hands down the best DUI lawyer you are ever going to find. His attention to detail and knowledge/ expertise on the subject is second to none. Not to mention, he's one of the kindest people you'll ever meet. My case was a good one and we decided to go to trial. Eric did a great job and after a hung jury, we negotiated a deal that I am very happy with. Here's a bit from a thank you letter I sent to him that I think sums it up pretty well:
"On a personal note, this experience could have been way worse. Your demeanor and patience with the courts, the prosecution, and my endless line of questioning made a world of difference. You truly made this experience manageable."
I highly recommend Eric Ganci if you ever need a DUI lawyer.

He was very knowledgeable about dui and dui/drugs. I was waiting for a court date and he was extremely helpful. His consultation was excellent. He spent a lot of time with me to make sure I understood everything and was comfortable with it. Great guy and a great lawyer!

I called Eric the morning after I got out of jail on a DUI arrest. The circumstances around the arrest were alarming to me and there were significant implications for my life--personal and professional--if I were to have a DUI on my record, so I enlisted Eric, and I am so thankful I did. I found Eric through this website and Yelp with high ratings for his honesty and competency, and I really valued how responsive he was both immediately (answered his phone right away, listened to my story, gave me sound advice before I even hired him as my lawyer) and as the case moved forward. I could always reach him by phone or by email, and he did a great job of walking me through what I could expect to happen based on the details of my case and his extensive knowledge of the prosecution of DUI cases in Southern California. Eric honestly evaluated the details of my case and met with me and my friend (a witness) and advised me to proceed to trial based on the nature of my case. His emails are detailed and well-written and he was always very prepared and knew the details of my case very well. From the day following my arrest to the DMV hearing to my arraignment to court (finally), Eric was always prepared and communicative. He also let me know what the possible outcomes could be and how we could best prepare to win our case, such as reviewing the actual circumstances of the evening (contrary to what the prosecution through), using an expert witness to explain to the jury the way that alcohol is absorbed and affects the body, and just preparing myself and my witness. Trial was nerve-wracking and I was relieved to have Eric there to prepare me and reassure me. He ran trial like the skilled attorney I needed--from jury selection to closing arguments. Even when I was most concerned that I would be wrongfully convicted of a crime I did not commit, Eric kept me sane, staying calm, cool, and collected. I am so pleased I chose Eric to help me through this difficult time. I am also happy to say that we won the case! It is only with his help that this nightmare is over with the best possible outcome! I hope I never have another need for Eric's assistance and that no friend of mine does either, but should I ever need to recommend an all-star defense attorney for anyone in SoCal, Eric would be the one!

Extremely thorough and I couldn't agree more with all the other reviews; Eric puts in the time and doesn't ignore or delay his correspondence with his clients. He always quick to answer all questions with both knowledge and sound advice. He didn't sugar coat anything and gave me the hard truth going through the entire process. I highly recommend his expertise in dealing with DUI issues. You're in great hands with Eric for sure.

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.
