I am an experienced attorney who handles a wide variety of cases throughout Upstate New York. My approach to working with my clients is a little bit unique - every client or potential client gets my cell phone number (518-595-9529) and I am available to help you practicaly any time. Communication between us is paramount to my helping you effectively and I make sure you know as much as you can about your case before we make any decisions.
My office handles a number of different types of cases including:
Personal Injury Cases
Felony and Misdemeanor Criminal Cases
Divorces, Child Custody and Child Support
My goal is to be able to be your lawyer for every thing you need, but if I can't help you, I can refer you to someone who can. Give me a call and we can talk about what you need and how I can help make it happen.

Jennifer Sunderlin Family Attorney
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
I am proud to endorse Eric Schillinger. He is a zealous advocate for his clients, and approaches matters in a non-judgmental, practical way. Eric has an uncanny ability to find nuances and issues in cases that may ultimately help his clients obtain better results. He is an experienced trial advocate, and unlike many attorneys, is not afraid to hold prosecutors to their burden of proving a case beyond a reasonable doubt.
