Helping you keep your record clean

Being pulled over for a DUI is somewhat common, and while it causes significant risk to yourself and others, no one gets behind the wheel with the intent to harm. But when you have had too much to drink, you oftentimes lose the ability to think clearly and make rational decisions.

You deserve to be treated with understanding and compassion, and when you work with me, I'll do just that. In our initial consultation, we will go over the details of your arrest, the charge, and any priors you may have on your driving record so we can create an aggressive strategy for moving forward.

If you find yourself in a situation where you are pulled over for driving while drunk, you need a skilled DUI attorney with experience to help you through it. Ed Risha has been representing clients for over decades and has the skills and insight to help you pursue the best possible outcome in your case.

When your driving record already has violations, you could be facing licenses suspension or revocation. Don't let your driving privilege be taken away because you made the mistake of trying to face the system alone. Contact Ed Risha today for a free consultation so he can get started on your case.
