    I endorse Erik. Not only does he do all sorts of litigation, from the complex and highly challenging (here it is, I don't know about other states) Medical Malpractice area to the coveted (by attorneys) field of automobile accidents, he even helps manage our technology infrastructure ... which certainly helps in trial.
