I hired Eric Friday almost 1 1/2 years ago. After our initial conversation he never returned any of my phone calls or emails. After multiple attempts to contact him I called Fletcher Phillips, the practice he was working with in Jacksonville, FL when I hired him. They mentioned he left their practice and promptly returned my retainer. Eric Friday has yet to return the court documents I sent him, that I require to complete my case. Wasting a year and a half of my time, never doing what I hired him to do, Eric Friday is very unprofessional and unresponsive.

Mr. Friday was my counsel, representing me in several legal matters and did a great job. He is a diligent, kind, and empathetic lawyer with a great passion toward his work. Mr. Friday tried to contain costs and did everything he could to help me. He worked genuinely from his heart, passion, and a great sense of justice. Even today, I appreciate his time, effort, and compassion.
I am grateful for the support Mr. Friday gave me. His skill and diligence resulted in a successful outcome and his advice and expertise were instrumental.
If you're looking for an expert, smart litigator, pick Eric Friday.

Eric Friday has served as our lead counsel on multiple Federal and State constitutional issues, preemption law, personal property, privacy, and self-defense related issues.
He has effectively provided a range of legal services including education of industry and government officials, public outreach, legislative drafting & review, providing testimony to Florida law makers, media relations, and effective representation of our interests in court at the trial and appellate level.
Eric has taken the time to understand our needs and effectively communicate with us on matters of importance to our work. He serves to lead and coordinate the activities of a team of consulting attorneys and legal interns for our non-profit organization.
Mr. Friday's courtroom demeanor, level of understanding of his subject matter, and knowledge of relevant case context and precedent has proven to be decisive factors in our litigation.
I could not possibly give a higher professional or personal recommendation.
