 Here’s What’s Been Said About Both Books:

“I highly recommend these excellent books for criminal defense practitioners, both inexperienced AND experienced.”

Walt McKee, Esq., Augusta, Maine

Every Maine attorney whose caseload includes OUI and motor vehicle offenses should have a copy of Maine OUI Law and Maine Driver’s License Suspensions, Revocations and Related Offenses (non-OUI). Ed does a great job of untangling the web of Maine motor vehicle laws and in explaining those laws in a way that benefits both the novice and seasoned practitioner.  From practice tips on charge bargaining, to providing extensive case cites and statute references that will strengthen motion practice, to providing the reader with a greater understanding about the interplay between administrative suspensions and court suspensions, Ed covers it all. Both books have a user-friendly index that allows the reader to get the information they need in a short amount of time. Purchasing Ed’s books has been by far one of the best investments in legal secondary sources that I have made to date.”
