    I would personally like to thank Steve and Sara for helping me and the ones I care about in getting our lives back. Having multiple offences of DUI, I always fixed a problem that would not go away until the Oberman Law firm. Being probably one of the worst cases on file for Steve, he saw that I was searching for help but had no answers. Steve went above the call of duty and told me seeking help in other way’s than in the court room. He cares about the well being of his clients other than just being a name on the docket. His commitment to his family values show’s thru to his successful practice. He saved me in my professional and personal life in every way. If you choose the Oberman firm you will be successful in life if you are truly seeking help. Thank you again Steve and Sara for giving back the gift of life.

    Before obtaining a lawyer to manage my case regarding a DUI accusation I did an extensive amount of research. The only name that was highly recommended was Steve Oberman. The attributes and accolades that kept coming up were that he was more than a decent man and he has had much success in helping clients whom he believes in. The bottom line remained that Dr. Oberman was recomeded by person after person. It goes with out saying that I was devastated when faced with this obstacle. I looked at my career and future and the damage that these accusations would do to it. Since working with Steve Oberman I have been overwhelmingly impressed with his knowledge and his persistance in going above and beyond what I expected him to do regarding my case. Steve Obermans experience allows him to anticipate and proactively use techniques to allow for a fair trial. In working and communicating with Dr. Oberman I have gained hope and the upmost respect for him as a phenominal attorney. Steve Oberman is professional, an extremely seasoned attorney and most importantly he is a man who possesses unwaivering values.
