I heard about mr. Platten through my uncle. My case was over a car wreck and a man died in the wreck and I was charged with a state jail felony. Mr. Platten got it reduced to deferred probation. He is a nice knowledgeable man who knows what he is doing. I strongly recommend him.

Mr. Platten helped me with my DWI. If this went on my record I could have possibly lost my job. It was very embarrasing and it was very hard on me. I read a review on here and then spoke to him. He did a good job getting my case taken care of. The DWI was reduce to another charge and and got the results I had hoped for. He is very knowledgable and is a very nice guy. I would reccomend him again. Thank You

Summer 2013 Driving north on Highway 155. I was arrested for DWI and taken to jail without a shirt on my back literally. My wife contacted Erick Platten, he came down to the jailhouse in the middle of the night got me out of jail, put a shirt on my back and told me not to worry about a thing. At this point my future was looking grim. Erick Platten reassured me that this whole thing would just go away. After that night, I never heard another thing about my DWI arrest, somehow Erick was able to just make this whole thing go away there was never a case filed against me, nothing on my record, it all just went away Wow!

Summer 2013, I was driving North on Highway 155 heading home. I had just left the lake towing my boat. I was arrested for DWI taken to jail with no shirt on my back literally. Things are looking very grim for me. Erick Platten saved the day and my future, he advised me to sit tight not to worry he would make this whole thing go away. Some how Mr. Platten was able to make the DWI not even get filed into the system. I never heard another thing about it Wow!

My husbands charges could've gotten him up to ten years in prison, but thanks to Mr. Platten, he only had to serve a week. The case took less then a month from start to close. Great lawyer!

If criminal charges were filed against you in Smith County and you not guilty, my deepest condolences go out to you and your family. Just imagine the " Justice System" in all its beauty coming at you as a train. If you don't get a powerful defense in timely manner on your side, your life could be destroyed.
After extensive research for a good lawyer, based on the reviews in this website I decided to hire Erick Platten.
It's difficult to compare two different lawyers because it's impossible to apply them both in same criminal case and see the result. But, I can share what Mr. Platten has done for me.
I have seen Erick in action: jury selection, witness cross examinations, raising objections to the prosecution during the trial and so much more were the areas where he had an expertise. He fought hard for me. After long battle which lasted almost for two years my assault case was dismissed.
I would recommend Erick Platten for complex and serious criminal cases as an attorney.

I hired Mr. Platten for a DWI. I was arrested in Hunt County and thought about hiring an attorney in that area but Eric was highly recommended. Eric found problems with my case and they wanted me to plea guilty but Eric said no way. Eric said there was a problem with my blood test. It took three days to fight the case but I was found not guilty.
Thank you Mr. Platten

Erick did a great job with my case as well as being calming of my nerves.. I do recommend him for your needs. Every time I called his staff was fun and friendly. Thank you for a job well done!

I had a difficult time finding a lawyer that would sue a doctor. Eric sued the Doctor that I will not name for work I performed.
Eric was even out of the country when I needed his help and he didn't hesitate in answering my calls and drafting a lawsuit.
Twenty days after he served the Doctor Eric went to court and obtained a judgment for lost wages, court costs, attorney's fees, and interest.
Not to long after obtaining the judgment Erick filed a motion for the Doctor to pay.
I can't thank Eric and his office enough for his help.

Erick represented us in a case against a drunk driver. He had absolute command of the court room, far above the other attorney. We won our case, and Erick already has plans in case the other side chooses not to pay the judgement levied against them. I previously reviewed Erick and made an error on the ratings. All the entries should have been excellent.
