If I had to do it all over again knowing what i learned after 2 years, I'd have hired Eric and had a much shorter, more efficient process that overall would have cost me far less money. He is absolutely caring and super detail oriented. He is not "in it for the money" which is few and far between. A great man, and great lawyer.

my recent divorce experience was handled beautifully by eric. i felt cared for and important and comforted through the entire process. his knowledge of the law and the process was flawless. it was paired with a real living, breathing working feel for the human element as well. we explored motives, feelings, and emotions before each difficult decision.
i am a skeptic when one is "selling" themselves and their services but that NEVER cropped up with eric. honest, true, authentic and principled is the profile i left with regarding eric and his ways and practice.

Eric is not just an amazing lawyer, he is an incredible individual. I would constantly refer to him during the 6 month mediation process I went through, as my guru. He fought hard for me, but most importantly, never let me respond to the emotional BS that came from the other side, and focused me steadily on the facts and the process. When I would get upset, he would calm me down and would not let me escalate. I know now that this is both fundamental to the outcome and to damping down the mind-bogglingly painful experience that encompasses a divorce. What Eric does is both counter-intuitive to the client (who is upset and wants to fight), and even to his own immediate interests, because conflict will inadvertently increase hours billed. It takes an incredible professional to stand above the noise, formulate a winning strategy, and do the right thing. I ended up with a beyond satisfactory outcome, and surprisingly learned a ton about myself from Eric, while working through the conflicts. Eric is truly one of the most outstanding professionals I have ever known, and I can't recommend him highly enough.

I highly recommend attorney Posmantier. Eric is an exceptional attorney. He has a great talent in translating legal issues into easy to understand language. And, his personal strengths of strategic thinking, listening to understand, and communication are as impressive as his legal skills. After researching many local attorneys, and interviewing Eric to understand his approach, he was an ideal fit as my attorney.
Eric and his office team demonstrated excellence in communications, and are nothing short of top-notch, often responding to e-mails within ten minutes. And, an entirely electronic office was a great benefit to the communication process as well as to expediting the completion of activities throughout the legal process.
Personally, Eric is very genuine. He truly cares about his clients and their well-being and is always looking out for both their best financial and emotional interests.

I cannot imagine finding a more competent lawyer than Eric Posmantier. From my first consultation, I knew Eric was one of those rare people you meet with a blend of integrity, a desire to help people, and the need to do the best job possible with the least expense to me.
Mine was a very contentious divorce, and Eric and his entire staff went above and beyond for me. I first hired Eric as a coach in the early stages of mediation, and even with a background role, he was able to guide me toward the best financial outcome possible. As mediation moved into litigation, he stepped in as my attorney, and helped me to understand and participate in every decision along the way to settlement. It was a miracle we did not go to trial, considering the personalities we were up against.
Eric is one of the rare not just lawyers, but human beings, who has true heart. His excellent interpersonal skills and profound understanding of the psychology of people make him an exceptional family attorney. I would encourage anyone even thinking about divorce to get in touch with Eric - be assured that you will be in good hands.

I can't say enough good things about Eric Posmantier. From the first time I met him, I felt like I met an attorney who cared about my family and my best interests. My divorce was not an easy one, but with Eric's guidance and support, I was able to get through it, one step at a time, one day at a time. Eric is a man with strong family values, a man who wants to see things resolved as quickly and as amicably as possible. I interviewed a number of attorneys before retaining Eric. I went to consultation after consultation, not leaving those meetings with a clear direction in mind. In desperation, i checked websites trying to find attorneys with a good number of strong client ratings. Eric was rated number one on your website's list, so I decided to meet with him. After my first consultation with Eric, I had a short list of things to accomplish to get the ball rolling. We took it one step at a time until we reached a resolution. There is never a solution that is one hundred percent satisfactory to both parties, but Eric guided us to a solution that was acceptable to both sides. For this, I am very pleased with his services and would highly recommend him to anyone who finds themselves in this difficult situation, especially where children are involved.

I would highly recommend Eric to anyone who requires an attorney for a divorce proceeding where children are involved. I initially worked with Eric as a divorce coach for independent support through divorce mediation. His expert guidance on the different positions I could reasonably take was very helpful throughout the process. He was also very efficient in his time spent with me. Never did I feel I had a wasted minute of billable time. When I let my emotions start to take over and take positions that were not in the best interests of my children, he dialed me back and helped me see the wisdom or lack thereof in the position I was taking. He truly cares about minimizing a divorce’s impact on the children.
When my mediation came to a halt, I asked Eric to represent me. When my ex-wife retained her attorney I saw that Eric quickly established a positive rapport with her attorney with an agreed principle of settlement. He then took the settlement and parenting agreement that was in process during mediation and led me and my ex-wife’s attorney through negotiations to finalize the agreement. Never once during the discussions did he incite me or pour fuel on the fire. I also was very impressed with some of the creative solutions he developed for some key issues that my ex-wife and I were stuck on. Although Eric’s focus is to get to a cooperative settlement, he was very firm on the positions that protected my interests, both in the short and long term. Eric was instrumental in helping me achieve a speedy settlement. Whenever I hear the stories of contentious and never ending divorce proceedings with self-serving attorneys, I become even more grateful that I was able to find and retain Eric for my divorce.

I would definitely recommend Eric to anyone who has to go through the Divorce process or has a post-judgment matter. I have used Eric for both, and was extremely satisfied with my representation and the counsel I received. He has a truly unique perspective and approach as a divorce attorney. Unlike most divorce lawyers who seem to (in a self-serving and destructive way) enjoy pouring gas on the flames and engage in pointless conflict, arguments and litigation with the other party (and rack up unnecessary fees), Eric understands the true emotional, financial and experiential 'cost' of divorce, and his primary interest is to find the best path to resolution and closure so you can move on and rebuild your life constructively. That said, if necessary, he'll advocate firmly and effectively to protect your interests, position and well-being. He is an excellent problem solver who comes up with creative and constructive solutions to complex problems. He has a bias toward non-adversarial conflict resolution, and will do everything in his power to get you a peaceful, cooperative and speedy resolution...yet will always stand up for your position and rights as necessary. Perhaps the greatest compliment I ever heard about Eric was when the judge in my matter voluntarily praised me for my choice of counsel and said I "could not have found better representation." There are a lot of sharks in the divorce waters -- Eric is NOT one of them -- he's a 'life saver' boat.

The choice to leave my marriage of almost 17 years and do life differently was not easy……divorce is NEVER easy. But from the very first meeting with Eric I knew I was going to be guided by a professional and highly competent attorney. Eric was always rational, always compassionate, and always had MY back in negotiating with a very difficult soon-to-be ex-husband.
Eric’s main focus was always that of the best interest of my children and that I was taken care of in a fair way. When I would want to throw in the towel, Eric was there to talk me off the ledge. The office is professional, elegant and convenient. His staff was friendly and highly skilled in managing my case.
But for the guidance of Eric through my divorce process, the whirlwind and aftermath of divorce would have really knocked me down. I had a mentally unstable and angry husband, a special needs child, my own health issues AND I wanted to move out of state so I could be near my family for support to get my life back on track. We were able to accomplish all of my goals in negotiating what I felt was a fair settlement.
As I stand here now 18 months after the judge stamped my divorce decree, the dust has settled and my life has never been more full and fulfilling. My girls and I are healthy and happy and safe......and I owe a lot of that to my friend and divorce attorney, Eric Posmantier.
