Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer

  • Jason W. Swindle

    Currently, Eric is serving as co-counsel with me on a serious felony case. He has been instrumental during every phase of this criminal prosecution. He also has a great deal of respect from his peers, prosecutors, and the judges.

  • Andrew Frasier Wehunt

    I would highly endorse Eric to handle your domestic case. I had the pleasure of working with and learning from Eric for six years prior to becoming an attorney. Eric always had the ability to find the perfect argument and the flaw in the opposing counsel's case. Eric represents his client's with 100% focus and attention to the small details many would overlook. The best compliment that I could give Eric would be to say that if I were involved in a case today and he was the opposing counsel, I know that I'm in for a hard fought case and I have to be on my "A" game.
