Erik S Fisk is a good lawyer
I briefly consulted with Erik, I did not hire him. His responses were friendly, accurate and helpful. Based on this correspondence I would hire him.

Reliable, professional, and gets the job done.
I have relied on Erik Fisk's services multiple times, as have others I have referred to him. He gave me excellent advice on what to do and what to avoid in multiple cases involving finance, he was a strong advocate when dealing with opposing counsel, and he used his knowledge of the law to help me navigate situations I was unfamiliar with. I was able to get a completely satisfactory result, but would have been equally happy with Mr. Fisk had the result been otherwise. I highly recommend Mr. Fisk for his professionalism and excellent advocacy.

Shank vs. Shreegi
A golden tongued orator, Mr. Erik Fisk calmly and professionally gave the opposing clients just enough room to hang themselves without taking the case to trial. Due to the tragic death of my best friend, my cat, Zac, and the trauma associated with his death, settling out of court became desirous for me. Mr. Fisk provided this end result as an option for me, with his skill, knowledge, and his ability to hold facts together and connect them for use in defeating the opposing side. Again, so subtley that the other side became fearful of trial and finally gave Mr. Fisk and I an acceptable amount for which we settled. They seemed unable to see or refused to accept that the law had been broken by them. Mr. Fisk changed their minds. He far out performed the opposing attorney. He brought hope and light to my life when I knew none. I strongly recommend Mr. Fisk to all who wish to win their cases.

Didn’t meet one deadline - lost case
Lost tens of thousands of dollars due to negligence, incompetence and procrastination. Can you imagine hiring an attorney and still ending up with a default judgement! This was a slam dunk case and he could not put the pieces together in time and consistently lied about it. Would never hire this person who kept the money without even minimally doing his job!

Hey Andrew. Collins Community Credit Union treating you well? I'll give you a day or two to take this down before acting on this libel.
