  • Andrew Frasier Wehunt

    I would highly endorse Eric to handle your domestic case. I had the pleasure of working with and learning from Eric for six years prior to becoming an attorney. Eric always had the ability to find the perfect argument and the flaw in the opposing counsel's case. Eric represents his client's with 100% focus and attention to the small details many would overlook. The best compliment that I could give Eric would be to say that if I were involved in a case today and he was the opposing counsel, I know that I'm in for a hard fought case and I have to be on my "A" game.

  • Joe Wayne Hendricks Jr.

    As an attorney who has been on the same and opposing sides of cases I can wholeheartedly say that Eric is an outstanding lawyer. Eric and I were on the opposing side of criminal cases when I worked as a prosecutor and we worked together in the same law firm. He is an experienced trial attorney and a skilled negotiator. Eric works hard for his clients and if I am asked for a referral for a criminal defense or family law attorney, I would not hesitate to recommend him.
