Our Commitment to Our Clients,

Of equal importance, our Knoxville DUI attorneys and staff strive to provide exceptional service to our clients and pride ourselves on prompt and thorough communication with our clients.


Due in part to the work ethic and dedication of The Oberman & Rice law firm to our clients, Martindale-Hubbell™, the renowned organization which has offered attorney peer reviews for more than a century, has bestowed the firm with the highest rating for law firms. We are also proud that our Knoxville DUI lawyers continue to be honored with many awards from numerous other organizations.

Unlike lawyers who use mass mailings to lists of people recently arrested, we limit the number of cases we accept to ensure we devote the necessary time and effort to provide each of our clients the personal attention they deserve. Our Knoxville DUI attorneys provide you detailed information about your Tennessee DUI charges, the associated Tennessee DUI penalties, as well as the court procedures.  The Knoxville DUI attorneys of The Oberman & Rice Law Firm are readily available to answer your questions and concerns both while your Tennessee DUI case is pending and after your case is concluded.
