Great Lawyer
Eric did a fantastic job for me. He figured out an important detail in the case that made all the difference. If it was not for that complete analysis and due diligence he performed probably would not have won the case.

Eric Parker personal injury claim
Eric Parker represented me in a cliam filed against me ewsulting from an automobile accident. The plaintiff was seeking a subtantila amount of money. eric worked with me for three and a half years until he neotiated a favorable settlment. During this time period Eric exhibited a great deal of knowledge and experience in personal injusry claims. I knew from the start I was extremly well represented. Equally as imnportant to me was Eric's thoughtful and kind persoanl dealings he had with me. He always made me feel like I was his top priority. I aslo worked with other members of his firm on matters unrelated to the personal injusry claim. The high level of knowledge and client service provided by the other firm mebmers is a great reflection of the type of firm Eric has created. I am now a client for life.

Gets the Job Done
Eric handled a medical malpractice case for me. I have to say that at times I felt he was not totally transparent with me about what was going on with the case. However, in the end that did not matter because he got the job done and he did it above me expectations. He is knowledgeable and I would recommend Eric without question.

"I endorse this lawyer. I have known Eric for more than fifteen years. During this time I have asked him to represent clients and close friends who needed an excellent advocate in personal injury matters. They have always been grateful for his help, and pleased with the results. Eric is highly intelligent, energetic, and focused.

Personal injury Attorney | Sep 08
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I endorse this lawyer's work. I have known Eric for several years. We have been on opposite sides of s particularly difficult case and I had the opportunity to observe his skills first hand. He was a worthy advocate for his client and a tough negotiator who was always prepared and able to marshal the facts to his client's advantage. Since then we have collaborated on a couple of matters and currently have a case where he is handling a tort claim and I am handling a workers' comp claim for the same client. I have been impressed with his quick grasp of some touchy issues and his judgement in negotiating the tricky waters that lie ahead of both of us as the case moves forward."
