I was in an accident in May 2012 and had two lawyers prior to hiring Eric Hoort who did nothing to move my case along. I hired Mr. Eric in November of 2013, he was in the process of moving offices but never let that effect his work. He worked hard to resolve my case and kept me well informed. He responded to my emails right away and was very knowledgeable. It is the middle of January 2014 and my case has now been resolved and finalized. He did more for me in less than 3 months than two other lawyers did in 2 years. He is amazing and I would highly recommend him to anyone going through a tough personal injury case like I had. He was always very honest and told me we may have to go to trial to resolve my case. He was able to settle out of court and I am extremely thankful to him and his team. Meet with him and you will see that he isn't a lawyer who only cares about money his first priority is his clients.

I was seriously injured in a car wreck and lost 2 years of work. My bills were high and the insurance company wanted to claim my injuries were from old injuries. Eric fought my case for almost 2 years. In those 2 years, Eric kept me and my husband updated every week as to what was happening. Eric also was very aggressive (in a good way) with the insurance adjuster.
After a long fight, we won! We got all my medical bills paid, all my lost wages paid and I received a large award for the pain I endured.
Eric was so nice and compassionate. He really listened to me and my husband and that made me feel important.
Thank you Eric

I was in a pretty bad car accident, I called Mr. Hoort after a friend recommend him. Best decision I ever made. It felt like I was so over whelmed trying to deal with my injuries, car, insurance, time off work and so on. Once Mr. Hoort took over he said just work on taking care of your health and I'll handle everything else. He truly did and the settlement was more than I thought which helped a lot with me taking time of work and getting a new car and future care that I may need. He was nothing like any lawyer I met he treated me like he truly cared. I recommend him!

Eric Hoort took on my medical malpractice case when no one else would. I spoke to other attorneys who told me the case was too tough. Eric handled it like a professional. He worked tirelessly to prepare my case. He destroyed the defense attorney and made their witnesses look foolish at trial. The jury loved Eric and hung on his every word. The jury awarded a large settlement which will help me and my children survive now since i can no longer work. Eric came to my house to spend time with me and my family to get to know us really and see how my life is truly impacted. Do other lawyers do that? i had nbever heard of such a thing. Eric is absolutely wonderful and you cant get a better attorney.

I suffered horrible injuries as a result of my back surgeons negligence. I can no longer work and my life has been permanently altered. I was hopeless and then i was directed to Eric Hoort. Eric took my case when 2 other lawyers said no, they said it was too risky. Eric took the case to trial, he worked tirelessly with me and my family. Eric even spent the night at our house so he could see first hand how our lives were affected. I have never heard of a lawyer doing that before. The insurance company hired several surgeons to say that i got a bad result. Eric destroyed their credibility and just last week the jury awarded me a large award which will help me and my family in the future. Eric saved my life. I read the other reviews and they further my opinion that Eric is a fantastic attorney and i will recommend him to anyone who asks.

I was blinded in one eye due ot the negligence of a surgeon. Several lawyers woulodnt take my case becauswe they said it was too difficult to prove. I then found Eric Hoort. Eric is very intelligent and has a way around people. He commands attention and that commands is reinforced by extreme analysis and intellect. Eric took control of the case and never looked back. He pushed the insurance attorney at every turn and was masterful. Better than his legal skills were his personal skills with me and my wife. Having lost my vision in one eye has been life changing and Eric was very compassionate, he listened and kept me informed of everything happening. We were ready to go to trial in October but just yesterday I agreeed to a settlement. Eric was able to get me a very large award which will help my family in this difficult season. This site says Eric is average? What? Average? There is nothing average about Eric or the settlement he obtained for me. It was his willingness to push the case to trial that ultimately lead to the settlement. If anyone is looking for a fantastic, aggressive trial lawyer then call Eric.

I was seriously injured in a motor vehicle crash. Mr. Hoort was amazing, he was very aggressive with the insurance company and pushed them very hard. He controlled the case, he got me a large settlement that will help me becuase i can no longer work. He always communicated what was going on and took his trime to explain all the options. He was trewmendous. I strongly recommend Eric and his firm.
