Fantastic Lawyer
I hired Erich almost 3 years ago after an accident. He fought and battled that entire time for me. We were thrown several curve balls throughout the process and Erich knocked them out of the park. He was always available by phone or e-mail when I had questions, and I had a lot of questions. He really went above and beyond for me and for that I am forever grateful.

Thanks for a great job!
Erich handled my motorcycle accident from start to finish. It was a great relief to have him iny corner through the journey, especially when all the medical bills and legalities started piling up. I was able to focus on my recovery, healing, therapy, and getting better. Erich handled every detail, and on the end, got me 100% settlement! Thanks for all the hard work and help Erich...you rock! I wouldn't have made.it through so easy without you! Dennis

Professional with a understanding heart
Erich made me feel safe and cared for. From the very beginning, once I called him, he guided me through the overwhelming process. His advice was priceless. I recovered from my injuries and financially was made whole. I cannot emphasize enough how easy he made the process. Professional with a soft touch is how I best describe him. I don't look forward to my next accident/injury, but I do know I'm covered with him in my corner.

Very Impressed!
A friend referred me to Erich after I was involved in a serious car accident. I immediately felt like I was in good hands and was able to concentrate on getting better. Everytime I called, I was able to quickly get the answers to my questions. The outcome was so much better than I ever expected! Thank you Erich!!!

Attorney Eric Scherr
I am submiting this testimony on behalf of Attorney Eric Scherr. This past year Attorney Scherr was assigned to my case for an auto accident case while he was employed at a prestigious law firm located in Wisconsin. Upon his decision to strike out on his own I was so impressed with the progress he had made regarding my case up to that point that I asked him as well as made a request to his former employer that he be allowed to take my case with him. My wish was granted. I am happy and satisfied with the final outcome of my case and feel that I made the right decison. There is no doubt in my mind in the event I need legal representation in the future that Attorney Scherr will be my first choice to handle such matters. He is more than a credit to the legal profession. I was also impressed by the fact that he has been deemed as one of the "Young Guns" who is up and coming in the world of law!

Positive outcome
I had a very positive experience working with Erich. He managed my case very professionally, responded to my questions very quickly, and was pleasant to work with. I hope I'm never in a situation again that requires legal representation, but if I am, I wouldn't hesitate to call Erich!
