Given Eric's more than 10 years pursuing real estate development and acquisition opportunities and pursuing other business ventures, he combines his business knowledge with his litigation and trial expertise to offer his clients a broader range of solutions to address their legal problems. He knows firsthand from the client's perspective what are the "needs" to resolve a given problem, rather than focusing only on the "wants" or "wishes" of the client, which lead to unrealistic expectations. Eric is a pragmatic thinker who uses many of the tools at his disposal to resolve complex legal disputes and counsels his clients accordingly.
