Great Defense, Great Results

Eric Rice has handled a wide variety of criminal matters and has obtained many successful results for his clients. His expertise ranges from full-service representation in criminal matters, including DWI, theft, assault, drug possession, expungements, criminal sexual conduct, white-collar crime, and appeals. Here are some of his most recent results:

Jury finds defendant not guilty of second-degree DWI Test Refusal

Eric’s client was charged with second-degree DWI test refusal and third degree driving while impaired.  After the prosecutor was unwilling to dismiss the charges, Eric successfully obtained a not guilty verdict after a jury trial. During the trial, Eric argued that the police had misidentified his client and failed to conduct an adequate investigation.  Eric demonstrated reasonable doubt by cross-examining the police officers about their poor investigation and presenting strong supporting evidence that his client was innocent.  After deliberation, the jury sided with Eric and his client and returned two verdicts of not guilty.

Reduced 110-month sentence to 36 months

Eric’s client was charged with third-degree burglary and theft and agreed, while represented by another lawyer, to be sentenced as a career criminal to 110 months.  After an appeal, Eric took the case over and successfully argued that the State lacked evidence to sentence him as a career criminal.  Eric opposed any other sentencing enhancement, and the prosecution agreed to sentence his client to 36 months.  Although his client had sat in jail while his matter was pending, he had accrued enough time for a 36-month sentence and was released a week after the hearing.

Defended against potential embezzlement charges

Eric’s client unknowingly passed embezzled money and was caught in an investigation and possible legal action. Eric successfully defended the matter by getting a confession and full repayment from a third party, and negotiating the dismissal of all potential legal action.

12-month sentence reduction for Felony DWI.

Eric’s client was charged with, and plead guilty to, a felony DWI.  However, Eric focused on his client’s mitigating factors and negotiated a 12-month reduction of a presumptive sentence, which was under the presumptive sentence for his client’s offense and criminal history.

Fugitive from justice charge dismissed

Eric’s client was charged with being a fugitive from justice and was faced with extradition to another state.  Eric successfully argued that his client should be allowed to travel of his own free will and ultimately got the fugitive from justice charge dismissed.

Driving without insurance — dismissed

Eric’s client failed to pay her insurance dues for a month and got into a car accident.  She faced stiff penalties, including a loss of his driver’s license, for driving without insurance.  However, Eric worked with the prosecutor and got the driving without insurance charge dismissed and his client ended up paying a small fine.

I am happy to recommend Eric Rice as a highly competent, very responsive and thorough attorney. He possesses compassion and is easy to communicate with. My case was resolved to my complete satisfaction.L.D.
I was arrested for domestic assault. I was facing some considerable time for something I did not commit. . . . [Eric] never failed to return my calls. Together we developed a strong defense. When in court, Eric was nothing but a professional's professional. I was absolutely impressed and amazed on how much respect he demanded from the Judge and the prosecution. He quickly and surprisingly had my case dismissed. I even got a veiled apology from the prosecution. The guy's a winner and will be one for a very long time.K.M.

Eric made sure that I fully understood what took place and why. He also told me that even though his job was done, that should I have questions in the future to feel free to call him. I just can't say enough good things about him. I thank God that we found him and will never be able to truely explained how blessed I felt to have him represent my son. If you are considering hireing Eric, I would highly recommend him. I hope that I will never need his services again but I will hire him again should I need him.Tammie
