Great advocate for his clients
Eric was a fantastic advocate for our family during a difficult time. He showed great compassion and energy towards the case from our initial consultation all the way through to the settlement of the case. The level of professionalism he has for his clients and the legal system is second-to-none.

Extremely Knowledgeable and Transparent
Eric provided expert advice and stayed focus on our best interests. His years of experience showed in our regular interactions and in dealing with the other parties in the case. Our case had components that included bodily injury and property damage. There were some complicating details related to the parties involved that Eric was able to handle in a straightforward manner. We were impressed with Eric's ability to: 1. Present a complicated situation in a way that we could understand clearly. 2. Present options, potential next steps around each option. 3. Proactively act on follow up items with insurance companies, lawyers from other parties, hospitals and county officials. 4. Secure a result that our family found very acceptable. Eric's sensitivity to our family's medical situation was much appreciated as well. At a time where we were overwhelmed with emotional and physical trauma, Eric handled all of our legal commitments in a professional manner that gave us piece of mind in that part of our situation.

Very informative-Higly recommended!
I consulted with Eric in regards to a situation that has me very frazzled. Unfortunately, it is not a case that he can accept but that did not deter him from advising me to the best of his abilities. Eric did not have to take the time that he did with me on the phone. That shows his character and his immense care for others. I believe any one would be very fortunate to interact with Mr. Nowak and have him as their attorney. Thank you, again!
