Amazing Service
Eric Palmer helped me through a murky car insurance situation. He negotiated for an outcome that was far better than I hoped for. I highly recommend his services!

Car Accident Surgery Bills
Eric Palmer helped me get through some really bad times. After I got in a car accident, I had to have neck surgery. My own insurance company denied almost all of the bills, and I was left with a bunch of collections groups calling me all the time. Thanks to Eric, I didn't have to file bankruptcy! I would recommend Eric to anyone that needs a good lawyer after a car accident.

Extremely Satisfied
Mr. Palmer helped me sort of the mess I had on my hands after I got hurt in a car accident. I would recommend his services to my friends and family if they ever got hurt too.

Terrible effort
Eric let this auto accident case drag out for a ridiculous four years and then completely quit on me. Zero fight and effort in my case, just wanted it to go away as he joined a new larger law firm. I would not recommend him based upon my experience.
