On January 20, 2022, the mother of my child filed a petition for an order of protection against me, alleging domestic abuse—which was untrue. how I can fend off this.

Professional
I made a bad choice late one night and made a great choice the next morning when I contacted Eric. Eric helped get me through a difficult situation by being steady, professional, honest, realistic and genuine. It felt like he had strong working relationships with the other parties involved (attorney and judge) and I think that benefited me. You can trust Eric!

Quick-Witted, Caring and gets Favorable Results!!
I had three charges. Eric was able to dismiss two charges and have a stay of adjudication on the third charge. I am very pleased with the outcome. I was extremely happy with the communication and clarifications Eric provided during the resolution. I gained more confidence with him every phone call. He always provided intelligent and well thought out answers. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing a criminal defense attorney.

Great Lawyer, Great Case Outcome
Eric was so helpful to me especially as I had never been involved with the legal system in any way. He calmed my fears, explained everything, was always a phone call, text, or email away and resolved my case with the ideal outcome. It went better than I thought or hoped it could have and I have no doubt that was due to Eric’s knowledge, expertise, and negotiation skills. I would 100% recommend him to anyone close to me and will definitely hire him again if the need ever arises. Eric went above and beyond my expectations of what an attorney was or could do for me. Thanks again, Eric!

Exceptional Lawyer
Mr. Bain represented me in an HRO matter that was falsely brought against me. From our very first consultation he was respectful, professional, polite and most importantly a great listener. Mr. Bain only had 2 weeks to prepare for my hearing but that proved to be more than enough time for him to submit exhibits to the court in a timely manner and prepare our arguments. During the actual hearing itself he remained professional and was very clear and concise during his questioning of both myself and the accuser. His ability to tie my story of what occurred and present the supporting exhibits was flawless and totally in sync. It was very invigorating to be a part of. His closing argument was passionate and stuck to the facts of the story. In conclusion, the restraining order was dismissed immediately by the judge! I have already recommended Mr. Bain to one of my friends and will definitely recommend him to anyone in need of excellent Criminal Defense.

Appreciation
He is very kind and explains in detail even the technical terms that I don't understand. And we finally succeeded in shortening the period of license suspension. I appreciate him very much.

Beyond Dependable Lawyer, Great Outcome
I didn't know a thing about the legal system and he answered all my questions with candor. He even dealt with my nutty family's insane rants and repeated pointless close-minded questions. He gave the best advice and didn't give up on me when I didn't keep to it and I gave myself more trouble. Steadfast and caring. A practical man who was always in my corner. This is the sort you can bet on. He's excellent counsel. I had no idea the outcome of my case could turn out as well as it did and his attitude and support never wavered. I don't have a list of best decisions in my life but if I did, hiring him would be in the top ten. I am where I am today largely through his efforts. I'd be impressed if I found something he couldn't handle. He can't save you from yourself but you got a darn good shot at a much better outcome with him backing you. In my case I was a wreck and I felt alone for over a year but I could count on Eric. He was a mighty champion of my cause throughout all proceedings.

Dedicated, smart, and caring
I contacted Eric on a weekend and he responded immediately. He talked with me in jail that day, explained my options, and greatly reduced my anxiety and fear. Over the course of his representation, he kept me informed and treated me with compassion and genuine concern. I was more than just another file. He obtained a much better result than I expected. Thanks to him, I have another chance. I would highly recommend Eric to anyone who needs smart, aggressive, and committed representation.
