  • Scott Anthony McMillan

    Eric Welter is an ethical and zealous advocate for his clients. He holds himself to the standard of a gentlemen, and manages to maintain a standard of conduct and performance that merits respect from his adversaries and the courts that he appears before. I had a case with him and was impressed by his work product and his conduct as an attorney.
