  • Thomas J. Maronick Jr

    Eddie is smart,talented and a self-starter as an attorney. He gets so many cases from referrals because he is unafraid to take a case to trial. Some of his clients insist that they go to trial, often because they have heard that Eddie is a tough fighter in a courtroom. He has accomplished a lot in a short time and I think more great things are ahead.
