    • I recommend Eric Puryear.
    • I hired Eric 1-3 years ago.
    • Eric handled my Child Custody matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Eric took my case last year after another lawyer botched it. He is very knowledgeable on the tenants of the law and unlike a previous review has shown compassion. His staff has been very friendly and warm on my visits there. No regrets!

  2. A fair priced flat fee rate for certain types of cases

    • Eric handled my Criminal Defense matter.

    Eric did a great job on my behalf. I pressed him for information during the free consultation, and that advice alone saved me a lot of anxiety and research time. I can say quite confidently that the results he achieved in my case were better than I would have gotten going in alone, because i'd already talked to much and made every common mistake possible during the initial arrest. So all in all, I definitely feel the price was fair for the services rendered.

  3. Only Interested in Getting Paid

    • I do not recommend Eric Puryear.

    His office staff is rude, he is like an automaton, personality and compassion of mud. He is not proactive for the client-- will do nothing unless he is sure there are dollars in escrow.

    Everything is impersonal, all is handled through his internet "portal" -- communications, billing notifications, etc. If you do not have access to email or the Internet, you are billed additional charges for copies of your file.

    Results are minimal, doesn't care about YOU just that HE gets paid... He charges three times what it cost for another family member with the same situation with someone else..

    I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND HIM TO ANYONE... too bad there weren't reviews on him before we hired him.... took my money, no positive results.

  4. The firm does minimal work at maximum costs.

    • I do not recommend Eric Puryear.
    • I hired Eric 1-3 years ago.
    • Eric handled my Criminal Defense matter.

    I did most of the fact finding in the case. The attorney did not seem to be concerned for the outcome of the case. He was more concerned with being paid. Everything was last minute. Sadly, I could have represented myself with better results.

    • I do not recommend Eric Puryear.
    • I hired Eric more than 3 years ago.
    • Eric handled my Civil Rights matter.

    I had this lawyer for a small claims case. He accepted payments from the man who owed me money buy credit card the whole time. Then at the very end when he Paid it all off and I was suppose to get my check he said he didn't accept credit cards so sent the guy a huge refund of my money and expected him to pay a different way. That's all he had to say in the beginning was he didn't except credit cards. When I confronted him he dropped me and I never seen any money! He is the worse lawyer! DO NOT GO TO HIM

    • I do not recommend Eric Puryear.
    • Eric handled my Divorce / Separation matter.

    Seemed to be good at first but then started to notice my billing statements where getting outrageous. Most of the work was me running around myself. Showed up to court late on several occasions, one time showed up late and then proceeded to attend to another matter before coming back to inform me what was going on. I would not recommend them to anyone, the closer your case nears completion the more they drag their feet to get things done so they can bill you longer, Some of my documents had even been changed during time from what I was showed to what was filed with the court and things were not reviewed or checked before being presented. I'm very dissatisfied with this firm and will not do future business with them and would not recommend anyone else to either. They don't gather their facts they give a blanketed approach and don't seem to care how your case turns out for you as long as you continue to pay them.
