One of the best honest and helpful lawyer ever
We've reached Eric to sort out the issues with our employer. He has helped us to close the case gracefully with discussing with the employer's attorney. He is so humble, honest and worked so hard on our case, making sure it's closed. Thank you so much for resolving our issue so deligently and love your transparent process, I've seen several attorneys who will lure money just for talking, but Eric gives less importance to money and more importance to people and work. Can't thank you enough Eric, I appreciate it.

Most generous lawyer
I had a case with my employer and when i reached Eric for help , he was very patient to hear and also given a free consultation in first place and advised how it should be proceed, Eric is a non commercial lawyer , he treats his clients as humans not as money machines , I am very thankful for this support to resolve my case with my employer , I would recommend to blindly trust Eric and you wont regret your decision.

Personable and professional
I would recommend Eric to anyone. I haven't had the same professional service at Daniel Romano Law since he left. I'm glad he was assigned to my cases. The other attorneys I received at that firm repeatedly have dropped the ball. He was the best in my opinion. I have been able to trust his decision making and guidance. He helped me settle 3 cases.
