  • David Scott Maloney

    I worked for Eric for 5 years and had the chance to see him interact with clients and other attorneys on a daily basis. Eric is the consummate professional as he is always prepared, attentive to his clients' needs and extremely knowledgeable in the area of personal injury and litigation law. Most importantly, Eric is always willing to go the extra mile for his clients. I would not hesitate to refer a client to Eric as I know he will get the best result possible for them.
