    My case was regarding a business deal that fell through and resulted in a former employee taking over my business lease. Eric was compassionate and informative about the strengths in my case and I trusted in the emotionally difficult process. I appreciated his representation style and his counseling/coaching from discovery to depositions and mediation. I truly appreciated the knowledge and dedication Eric had to the outcome of my case to be fair and favorable.

    Eric a solid, straight-shooting, fair and respectful lawyer. As a rookie to the world of litigation and counsel, I had only preconceptions to aid me in seeking legal counsel. I am very pleased to say that Eric's assistance in our legal ordeal has helped me call into question those woeful lawyer stereotypes which are often the brunt of jokes. Eric communicated with us as a friend and mentor, and always exercised prudence when engaging in our case in order to maximize the value of his services.
