Simply the best Lawyer!
Highly Recommended! We have used Eric several times for wills, will probate, and power of attorney. Eric is a true professional, extremely knowledgeable, very detailed, compassionate, caring and trustworthy. I have a deep gratitude for all of his help through a tough time when my mom passed. I appreciate the time he took with us explaining everything in detail. He alleviated my concerns, and anxieties. A true professional.

The Best Lawyer in Woodbridge NJ
It's not everyday that I take the time to post a review let alone one with a five star rating. For Eric though I have to. About two years ago I came to him with a sensitive legal issue. Since then Eric has handled everything you need a lawyer for....You name it he did it. Estate transfer to close my husbands Moms house, the house closing, title searches etc. All along the way Eric was informative about every step and then some. I learned quite a lot. He never held anything back and he treated me like a partner. There will never be another lawyer for me or my family. Kudos Eric. I can never thank you enough.

Eric Schwab genuinely cares.
Mr Schwab made me feel at ease about my situation. He was GENUINELY sympathetic to my cause. He worked very hard and long to represent me. His knowledge of the law and court systems is extraordinary. If ever I need services again, it'll be Eric Schwab I call. If anybody I know needs services, it'll be Mr Schwab that I recommend. Thank you again Eric. You brought back my faith in humanity. My family thanks you as well

Highly Effective/Personable
My Wife (fiance at the time) and I used Eric Schwab for our real Estate closing when buying our first home in February of 2019. Eric took the time to walk through the entire "home buying: process with me and explain all of the in's and out;s of the legal process as well as the overall process. After leaving his office for our first consultation I had an immediate sense of relief in what is typically a stressful process. Eric also worked great with my realtor as well as the sellers attorney/realtor. I would not have any hesitation in using him again!

Couldn't be more pleased after hiring Mr. Schwab for our real estate transaction! From the first call, Eric took the time to explain in detail the process and always made sure we were kept up to date on everything that was happening. As a first time home buyer, with a difficult seller, I felt so assured that I had Eric in my corner. So knowledgeable, and also has a great sense of humor. Will definitely use him in the future and recommend to family and friends.

Traffic Tickets
I hired Eric to help me with a combination traffic tickets and a speeding ticket that would have equaled to 9 points on my driving record. When i first called Eric he was courteous and explained everything to me after which i decided to make a appointment to see him at his office. Once there he reviewed everything and told me what the best and worst case outcome could be and he prepared a plan of action. I hired him based on his experience and professionalism. The day of the court date i showed up in a suit well dressed and groomed as one should be in front of the judge. Eric used his experience to negotiate a plea with the prosecutor and after which we went in front of a judge to see if he would accept it. The judge accepted the plea and i was left with a 2 point ticket and a much smaller fee. I am very happy with the outcome and while it all depends on a lot of other factors i strongly believe Eric will do an excellent job being your guide through the world of law.

Eric Schwab Review
Eric went above and beyond to guide and support my parents in a critical time. He is thorough, thoughtful, compassionate and truly takes the time to explain the process and outcomes of decisions to his clients. Because of his service to my parents, my husband and I decided to use him for our legal needs and will continue to do so in the future. He will get my recommendation any day.

highly recommend!!
Eric was my attorney when I bought my home. He stood by me through the process and ever since. Recently, the mortgage company increased my monthly installment after a duplicate payment of property taxes by the mortgage company and the title company. Eric helped me recover that money back and my escrow balance has been corrected. Eric is also a very nice and honest person who is always concerned about helping clients.

I got into a car accident and the police mailed me 2 tickets. We called Eric at the referral of a friend and he got us in his Office right away , explained the whole Court procedure. He always kept in touch and advised us of his strategy. He personally called me the day before Court to confirm and re-assure me. On the morning of Court he arrived right on time and everybody there seemed to know him. He had a discussion with the Prosecutor and worked it out to a much much better result at hundreds less than I expected. In front of the Judge he spoke impressively and we were finished before everybody else even got started. Soooo glad I hired Mr. Schwab.

Best hardworking lawyer
He is tr greatest lawyer thst I had the pleasure of hiring. He genuinely cares about you and not the money. He's taken on cases for me snd I received tickets and he bunched it all up together with the original charges and didn't charge me more. Let's be honest how many lawyers do you know that does that. He's not about the money he's about justice snd helping people out who can't help themselves. He works night and day and brings the fight to them. He has charisma and character. His personality is his own he's unique in all the best ways possible. I don't know how he does what he does but he's worked some magic with my cases where I thought this is it I'm done for snd then BAM!!!! He gets it resolved. I promise you that he is worth every cent (he's very well and reasonably priced) he doesn't break the bank at all. Eric is trustworthy and fights for you tirelessly he won't just settle to get it over with just to collect your money. If he's not satisfied with what is offered he will fight for you. I will never hire anyone else. My loyalty lays strictly with Mr. schwab. Do yourself s favor and drop your lawyer if you already have one and hire him because I am willing to wager money and bet snd guarantee that they will not be better thsn eric. Thst is his strongly I feel and support him. He's changed and saved my life. BETTER CALL SCHWAB!!!!!

Mr. Schwab is the best attorney in Woodbridge
Mr. Schwab took care of my high speeding ticket and got my points reduced to 0 points. More than the result, Mr. Schwab is a very nice person and gives you a lot of confidence. He is very nice to talk to and explain everything in detail. I recommend him to anyone who is looking to get the matter resolved especially in woodbridge and surrounding court.

amazing! highly, highly recommend!
Eric helped transfer a property into my name. From the beginning, Eric was professional friendly, honest and transparent. He listened and answered any random question we had. Process flowed quick and perfect, due to Mr. Schwab being prepared and very attentive to detail! I feel that I can call him anytime (about anything) and he'd offer his assistance! Amazing customer service! Stellar person!

Absolute blessing
Eric really went above and beyond on my case and I've never been so thankful in my life. He came prepared and was able to consult with multiple lawyers to achieve an amazing deal for my co-defendents and I. He even paid for my fees as a form of refund. Extremely grateful for Eric.
