Instead of walking clients through a simple plea agreement where the defendant pleads guilty to a lesser alcohol-related driving charge in exchange for the original higher charge being dropped, Attorney Sternisha (whose client’s simply call him Ed) thoroughly investigates his cases to ensure his clients receive proper justice. While sometimes a reduced charge may be the best way to go, other times, depending on what Attorney Sternisha's investigation reveals, a jury trial or a complete dismissal may be in order.
With a background as a police officer along with being a licensed private investigator, Ed is not just a lawyer (see "Attorney" page). As such, he digs deep into his cases and looks for police errors, inconsistencies, and even false statements if they exist. “While I believe drunk driving is very dangerous, I also believe that those charged with OWI deserve to have a fair chance at defending themselves,” Ed has said. “Simply because someone is arrested for OWI, does not mean they are guilty. My job is to find out what really happened.”
Remember, every case is different and the results mentioned here are not typical. If you have been charged with an OWI offense, plead not guilty and “Call Ed Instead!” (616) 233-CALL-ED. Follow Ed on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/CallEdInstead?ref=hl
