Very professional and meticulous!
I can not say anything but wonderful things about Attorney Erhard. He was very professional and through from the very beginning of my case. His attention to detail and law experience clearly showed when he got my case withdrawn. If you have any hesitation ...don't I would definitely not thing twice if you are looking for an experienced, professional and meticulous Attorney!

Great Lawyer
Dave was very nice to my son and I through our case. We were very happy when the charges were dismissed. His firm is great with wonderful staff people.

Highly Reccommend
I was facing some some very harmful felony charges from FALSE accusations. Dave took my case to trial and won. He was helpful from start to finish. He kept them from ruining my life. Use him as your lawyer.

Awesome Attorney! The absolute best!
If there was a hell yes option for a recommendation I would have chose that. Dave was by far the best attorney anyone could ask for. Not only did he make sure I understood everything through out my case he also assisted me in making the best possible choice regarding the way my case would play out. I would definitely hire him again and recommend him to anyone.
