  • Craig Thor Kimmel

    Several years ago, Eric came to work for my firm and was immediately seen as a bright and gifted associate who exceeded expectations. His talents and ambition made it clear that he was going places and that it was just a matter of time before he opened his own practice. He is a natural born litigator who relishes a challenge, and more importantly, he routinely prevails. I've watched and admired his career since he left the firm, have kept in touch and worked on a few cases together. I have always been impressed by his talents and that of his partner. His cognitive reasoning, tenacity and dedicated work ethic are second to none. I highly recommend Eric, without hesitation.
