I gladly endorse Attorney Eric Hertz! Eric was one of the first seasoned attorneys to share his professional experiences with me after I became a licensed attorney. He is the master of the law of damages and one of the most successful trial lawyers in Georgia. I learn something new each time I observe Eric at trial or attend a CLE in which he participates. Eric is one of Georgia's finest trial lawyers as well as a great guy!

It is rare to find an attorney with intelligence, dedication to his craft and the ability to use raw emotion to obtain results for his clients, Eric brings all these things to the table every time. His ability in trial is a standard that other attorneys should seek to obtain. He always puts the clients best interest at the center of any matter he is associated with. Just an outstanding attorney.
