  • Stuart D Minion

    I have known Eric for about ten years since we found ourselves on opposite ends of highly complex divorce matter. Eric is a consummate professional and he is well respected by his peers and judges alike. If you hire him, you can expect an aggressive, tenacious and highly competent litigator, who artfully blends those traits with a terrific command of common sense in order to craft reasonable and practical solutions for his clients.
