Eric / Motion to Quash
Eric volunteered his time to assist our non profit agency in this matter. It required much of his time as the case was reset multiple times. Eric kept us informed throughout the process. He is very personable and professional. The motion went in our favor because of his diligence.

CEO of Carl Perkins center reviewing Eric's work on case for the Center.
Eric was very well informed about the case. He did his research and was prepared for court. He represented the center well and kept us updated as to each step of the development of the case. The outcome was what we had hoped for in this situation. He did a fabulous job. I would highly recommend him. He goes above and beyond for his clients. Honest and trustworthy.

Eric Egbert. Humboldt Tn.
After being recently widowed I found myself involved in a civil suit with a bank over a credit card debt which I had never signed the application. I selected Eric Egbert based on a suggestion of a lawyer friend. I found Eric very easy to talk with. He kept me informed and never failed to return my phone calls. WE WON!
