Excellent Attorney
I had a speeding ticket. Eric asked me what happened to me that day. He represented me in court and I am very happy with the results!! He is a successful attorney because he listens, cares and understands your situation. He is very knowledgeable and shows great presence and professionalism in and outside the courtroom. Going to Eric Trabin from Lucid Law is the best decision I made. M. Lange

He fights for you. Great success
He got me out of a VOP - during the pandemic! Which meant it was more difficult and took longer, - another month - because of courts closing and drastically having to switch from county to county. But he fought for me! Assured me of a successful plea. And can tell from the way he talked to me on the phone that he is real nice, passionate and cares very much to win your case.

You can trust Eric
I've used Eric 2 times now in the past 5 years and he has been AMAZING both times. He was Recommended by a friend and I have to say it was the best choice I've ever made. His attention to detail, he is constantly keeps you in the loop on everything going on, and he is straight forward and honest. Anytime you speak with Eric you feel comfortable and he is giving you the best advise possible. He is extremely knowledgeable of the court system and I would recommend him to anyone looking for legal advice. Eric is a 10 out of 10 in my book!

Extremely Professional
Mr. Trabin is an attorney you can trust. He does not sugar-coat anything and treats you as if you are his only client. In addition, it is always positive to go to trial and have success as well!

Extremely Professional
Mr. Trabin helped me out with a traffic offense. He was extremely thorough in getting all of the details. Once he received all the needed information, he quickly took matters into his own hands. He put my mind at ease and took care of all the details!

Look no further!
Mr. Trabin is a very good lawyer who is not afraid to go to trial if you case requires it. I found him on craigslist with no prior knowledege of his abilities. After talking to him the first time I knew he was the one who could get us results. My fiance was facing serious felony charges that could land him in jail for up to 15 years. At the time we hired Mr. Trabin my fiance was sitting in jail with no bond. Mr. Trabin was able to get him out in less than a week, so after that I fired the previous attorney who wasn't doing anything. Mr. Trabin's fees were very reasonable and he was able to get my fiance NO JAIL TIME. Mr. Trabin is a great lawyer. He is fearless in the courtroom. I highly reccommend him.

ERIC IS THE BEST!!! I could write a book about my case and how screwed up it was. Eric was the best decision I made. I hired an attorney that I just was not happy with. So, I found Eric on this website. He is very accessible by phone or email at anytime. He is very easy to get a hold of unlike a lot of other attorneys. Eric is in a class all by himself. I have dealt with attorneys over the years personally and in business. Eric is by far the best. He leaves no stone unturned. He is prepared for every possible situation that could happen. Also, he just understands the law better than any attorney I have ever met. I had a very serious case of a 3rd degree felony (which should have been a civil case). This case got so out of hand and was mishandled on every level from the detectives to the prosecutor. I was facing 5 years in prision for a crime I could not have committed because I was in the hospital having a major surgery at the time. I could not get anyone to listen to me. The final result was that the case was dropped. I can say without question this would not have been the result with any other attorney. Eric will fight for you all the way. In closing I want to talk about Eric the man. He is kind, professional, polite and explains things so the average guy or gal can understand. You are not a number to him. I can not thank Eric enough and I can not emphasis to the people that read this that Eric is the attorney to hire.

The lawyer you need.
I am a current client of Mr Trabin and i must admit that i have made a very wise choice. After meeting wtih 8 lawyers i realized that Mr trabin was the one for me. He pointed out important facts that other more experienced and higher priced lawyers didn't. He made me feel very comfortable and i was able to communicate with ease. He is very detailed, extremely knowledgeable and fullfills his promise of working his hardest for you. I was not just a number to him he kept me up to date and well informed on my case and also the direction we are heading. He is exceptional with answering his phone or returning your calls in a timely manner. He goes the extra mile for you . I will highly recommend Mr Trabin to anyone who wants and needs someone who will fight for you till the end with your best interest at heart. Thanks.

awesome lawyer!
Eric is a great lawyer! Not only did he take lots of time to explain everything to me but he worked really hard too. He got the state to drop all the charges and I couldn't be happier!

Best decision I could have made
I hired Mr. Trabin to settle an ongoing domestic case. At that point, I had already been through two other lawyers, neither of whom were getting any results. From the beginning, Mr. Trabin made me feel like my case was his top priority. He frequently updated me with the happenings of my case and his recommended legal strategy. He also was amenable to my suggestions regarding our proceedings and always made sure I was comfortable with the direction the case was taking. Through his tenacity and committed attention to detail, he was able to settle my case in a timely fashion. He was never disorganized or unprepared. Our Final Judgement lasted all of 10 minutes as our judge had no questions due to the "thoroughness of your attorney." Mr. Trabin conducted himself in a manner that was both professional and reassuring. I would absolutely hire Mr. Trabin again.

Very helpful
Eric Trabin handled my vop and a driving while license suspended in another county. He knew what motion to file that none of the other lawyers I spoke with even thought of. He got both cases dismissed!
Posted by ken | September 14, 2011
best attorney I have used in 30 years.
Mr. Trabin started working on my case immediately after we met at his office. He constantly kept in contact with me and the state attorney in another county. Eric was able to completely solve my problem with one court appearance. My family truly appreciates his concern and would highly recomend his services.

The best!
I had a criminal matter and he was just the greatest. My previous lawyer didnt really do anything and was trying to get me to plea. Eric did a lot of work on the case, called me all the time to give me updates, and ended up getting the case dropped! I hope I never have another case again but if I do I'm calling Eric!
Posted by Emiley | March 4, 2011
He was great
He was very professional, Knowledgeable and answered all my questions regarding my husbands felony case very straight forward, I felt very comfortable dealing with him and he is amazing. Would definitely recommend him

Mr.Trabin helped me when I was going through a VERY hard time concering a loved one being charged with a serious crime he was falsely accused of. Many attorneys actually after speaking with them told me that there was basically nothing I could do and I felt as if I should give up on a person that meant the world to me. I spoke with at least a dozen attorneys, and then by the grace of God I found Mr.Tribin. Not only was he well spoken, but he was very knowledgeable and would'nt give up on my situation. He kept me up to date on my case by the hour. By turning to Trabin I was able to get my loved one not only out of jail but all charges dropped and in the process of getting his record expunged! I couldn't have done it without him! What every attorney should strive to be if you ask me. And the case I had to deal with was probably as bad as it gets, and all over false allegations.
