Hello! This is Steve Oberman. I apologize for interrupting your browsing but I thought I’d take a few moments to mention some matters for your consideration. DUI convictions carry severe consequences that will follow you for the rest of your life. However, the prosecution often bases its case on faulty field sobriety tests and questionable blood or breath tests. It is important to hire a DUI defense attorney who studies and uses our constitutional rights and possesses the scientific knowledge to contest the prosecution’s evidence.

If you are researching lawyers to represent you or your loved one, you should consider that the focus of the Oberman and Rice Law Firm is the defense of DUI and other traffic related offenses, not on personal injury and worker’s compensation cases. I am honored to be certified by the Tennessee Commission on Continuing Legal Education and Specialization as a DUI Defense Specialist. I author a Tennessee book and co-author a national book, both relating to DUI laws.

My partner Sara and I regularly teach judges, police officers, prosecutors, as well as defense lawyers, about the intricacies of DUI defense. Sara and I have both received much of the same training as the arresting officers in administering field sobriety tests and drug recognition evaluations. Check out our resumes!

If you take the time to review this website and our blog,, which can be accessed through the menu bar above, I believe you will find the answers to most of your questions about this complicated area of law.

We know there are a lot of options when it comes to hiring a lawyer. Don’t you owe it to yourself to investigate our qualifications? After you do, I suggest you ask around. Seek out the recommendations of attorneys who practice in other areas of law, police officers, or courthouse personnel. I am confident you will hear complimentary remarks about our practice.

If this case is important to you, call us! Or fill out the contact form on our website. There is no charge for an initial consultation. If we choose to accept your case, we have a variety of fee structures and payment plans available. Thank you for listening. I look forward to meeting you! After all we mean it when we say: Your Future Is Our Present Concern®.
