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.
Mr. Platten done a great job on my 4th and 5th dwi. I thought I was going to go to jail for a long time but thanks to him and his team all I got was probation. I strongly recommend him to any body that is in need of a professional.... Thank You Erick Platten and team!!!
I hired Erick Platten to handle my criminal case. He kept me informed on what was happening and it took a good while to solve my case. He had it droped to a disorderly conduct charge with only a small fine.
Erick Platten was highly recommended to me and the results show just why. I surely thought I would be sitting in jail today, and probably would have if it weren't for him. I was arrested for my 3rd DWI in Tyler, which is a Felony. with my BAC being a .257, many thought I would be in jail no less than 6 months. But the reputation of Erick and how he handle DWI cases, the DA gladly accepted our plea. I got off this time with no jail time and 5 year probation. I thought I was going to miss work and several semesters in shcool, but I am a free man. still have my job and a full time student still at UT Tyler. If your ever in trouble for a DWI, Erick is the best fit in my opinion, and many others.
Mr platten fought and fought for my divorce!!! My. spouse is in prison and it is very hard to get papers in prison!!!! But even though it took a while to get it done. he got it done!!! He did an awesome job!!! Thanks
my girlfriend was facing two new charges he not only got her time ran currcurent he also was able to get her only 150 days for both charges he was fast and efficient and he kept me informed thank you for helping my girlfriend shell be home for her birthday
I highly recommend Erick Platten as a Criminal Defense attorney! He promised us over and over that "He would take care of our son", and he did just as he promised! He was able to negotiate a second chance for our son.
Erick is a great communicator. He kept us in the loop and reassured us when all seemed lost.
If you are faced with a serious situation, please call Erick. When we first called Erick we were desperately fearful about our son's future. Erick saw us on a Sunday morning, within an hour after we first called. I can't tell you how reassured we were after we met Erick that first time.
Erick did everything he could to facilitate an early release for our son, and ultimately negotiated an outcome better than we could have possibly imagined.
I contacted Erick Platten about purchasing Fire Arms ( 2nd Amendment ). I was unsure if i was going to qualify for purchasing a fire arm. Mr. Platten quick response and easy to work with helped me out to the fullest and checked if there were any problems in my background I passed with flying colors.
Mr. Platten = Highly Responsive and Trustworthy!!!!
Again thanks for all your help Erick Platten
I'm a minister and an educator and my life was turned upside down when a child accused me of horrible things. I didn't know what to do so I did my research and hired Erick. Erick told me that I was facing some serious charges that could have ruined my life. But, he told me he would do everything he could to help me.
There were so many court dates and hearings before there was supposed to be a trial. I was depressed and it was the worst time of my life but I felt I was in good hands with Erick fighting beside me in court.
Erick had experts from all over coming in and testifying about what this child said on a video and argued that the case should be dismissed because everything that was being said didn't match any evidence from hospital records.
Ultimately the case was dismissed by the judge before trial. After it was dismissed the DA tried to get the judge to open the case again but Erick fought against that too.
I never thought I would be in such a situation in my life but I'm so thankful for the hard work Erick did to win my case. Thank you Erick. JimmyN
