Top Notch Attorney
What can I say about the greatest Attorney dealing with master negotiations against the Insurance companies. He has skill like no other. If you have a case that deals with big injuries than you have to hire him. There should be a hall of fame for lawyers for he would be the first inductee.

"I gladly endorse Attorney Eric Hertz! Eric was one of the first seasoned attorneys to share his professional experiences with me after I became a licensed attorney. He is the master of the law of damages and one of the most successful trial lawyers in Georgia. I learn something new each time I observe Eric at trial or attend a CLE in which he participates. Eric is one of Georgia's finest trial lawyers as well as a great guy!"
