Awesome Individual - There are still good people in the world
I researched Tax Lawyers on Avvo and found Eric’s information. I emailed Eric and asked him if his initial consultation was free. Despite the fact that he was out of the office, he responded to my email and then called me to answer a Tax Liability, negotiation point, question with regards to my divorce. He did this at no charge! He’s a saint…No one does that in this day and age! I wish there were more lawyers with his good heart and not always out to make a buck but instead helping out his fellow man, or in this case woman!  Thank you Eric!
