Recommendation of Eric Smith
I have been dealing with Attorney Smith for 13 years. I appreciate the value of his advise. He is the calm in the Storm. Attorney Smith has excellent power of logic and reasoning and is able to adapt to nearly any situation with a careful evaluation and analysis of the facts before proceeding.

Former client and fellow lawyer in the community.
Eric provided my family and I with an invaluable service and demonstrated compassion during our time of loss. His knowledge and understanding of the difficult issues exhibited his value as a lawyer. He also demonstrated effective communication skills as an advocate throughout the litigation. I would most certainly recommend Eric to other potential clients.
