Quick and Attentive
I was very close to needing Erik's legal services as a litigation lawyer but was fortunate enough to have this resolved before hiring him. Although I only consulted with Erik, he was so quick to answer and gave me so much peace of mind by his professionalism and willingness to help. If I ever need to hire a lawyer I will be sure to go back to Erik. Even though my encounter was him with brief, it was evident he is willing to fight for you and get things done in a timely manner.

Caring and compassionate attorney
I had a dispute with a contractor over work performed to my home. The work was performed in a careless and reckless manner. Erik was able to negotiate a favorable resolution with the contractor's attorneys without the need for litigation and to ensure that I received back the monies paid. He gives 100% to his clients. He is also extremely personable and knowledgeable about the areas of law in which he practices.

Not your typical lawyer
When I think "lawyer," I think used car salesman or ambulance chaser. When I think of Erik Bashian I think humanitarian, caring, kind and beyond knowledgable. Rarely do you meet with a lawyer, and they truly have your best interest in mind, as opposed to their bottom line. Erik projects a level of comfort that eases my fear, and lets me know my best interest is his focus through his knowledge of law, his compassion and his ability to help resolve my issue.

Business Contracts
Mr. Bashian was extremely professional and in handling my business contracts. I have dealt with many lawyers in the past and his accessibility to his clients is extremely unique. I never had to speak with a receptionist and he always answered the calls himself or would call back in a timely manner. I would strongly recommend him to others all types of legal consults
