Helped when I needed it most
Erin came to my aid in the darkest hour of my life. He helped me understand the beginning of the quagmire that our legal system is. He treated me very well and I highly recommend him to anyone who needs a good man and a good lawyer. Thank you Erin

If you are looking for an attorney, look no more - Erin is the answer!
I cannot even begin to express in words how phenomenal Erin is. From day one I was more than confident in his capabilities and legal knowledge. Throughout the two years that he represented me I have never had to wait around for an update phone call or wonder about the status of my case. He has made the whole process so simple for me as opposed to the last attorney I worked with - He executed as he promised and was always on his A game! I personally and professionally appreciate all that he has done and his outstanding effort. I was informed throughout the whole case and trusted Erin in all of his suggestions. If I had to go through another legal issue I would not think twice about hiring Erin. In regards to money, you get what you pay for - Erin does not charge for phone calls which is essential because most of the time that is how we communicated, he also emails documentation in order to make it less expensive because HE CARES for his clients and he strives for an amazing outcome. The good rapport we have built is what everyone deserves with their attorney. Thank you, Erin!!
