Your Future Is Our Present Concern®
The vision for every lawyer in this firm is to provide clients with the very best client service and representation. We want clients to develop a long-lasting, trusting relationship with us.
We are proud to have built our reputation on hard work, not by buying billboards. As evidenced from the many volunteer educational presentations our lawyers make to the general public, defense lawyers, judges and even prosecutors, we are committed to servicing the people of our communities and the legal profession across the United States.
While lawyers are rightfully prohibited from promising results, Oberman & Rice does promise you that we will be easy to contact, readily available to discuss your case with you in person, and be not only prepared, but over-prepared to litigate your case. Unlike most law firms, all our lawyers confer regularly at a scheduled meeting to brainstorm about each case. In this manner, we are more likely to ensure nothing is overlooked and to develop innovative defenses.
The best results are obtained by working hard – not by chance. We are honored to be recognized by so many organizations as extraordinary lawyers and will continue our hard work and volunteer service as long as the firm exists.
The mission of our law firm is to zealously represent our clients, providing a thorough DUI defense while maintaining the highest standards of professional responsibility and ethics. 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.
As part of our commitment to providing the best possible DUI defense for our clients, Oberman & Rice endeavors to remain on the cutting edge of DUI defense techniques and strategies by attending and teaching at the most advanced DUI seminars in the country. Our firm also hosts a podcast, which highlights many issues surrounding Tennessee DUI cases, as well as the offense of driving under the influence in general. Please click here for more information about our DUI Law Podcast.
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.
awards and recognition
We are very proud to have been recognized by so many different premier organizations for our efforts and results. Candidly, though, we are never satisfied with our past successes. We are always expending the extra effort to fine-tune our defenses for the next client. Nonetheless, it is important to many potential clients to know that we are so well respected by other lawyers and past clients who have seen our work in court.
