    Erich and I worked on a wrongful death suit together and at every turn of the case his analysis was spot on and he was a step ahead of the defense. His commitment to ethical practice is superb and his interest in client contact is refreshing. He has instilled in us the confidence we need to send our clients with personal injury litigation needs to him without hesitating.
