Operating Agreement Help
He is quick to respond, and is helping me with my Operating Agreement for my LLC. He has a lot of other things going on, but he is still going to help me review my Operating Agreement.

Great Advice
Eric was quick to answer the call, which I thought was impressive to start with. He had answered my question and put my mind to ease immediately.

Ronke Law is great!
Eric is a very professional lawyer. He educates and guides you in a compassionate way through your legal process. His communication is clear and he quickly responds to any concerns or questions you may have regarding your legal process. His attention to detail is meticulous and is exactly what is needed for a positive outcome. After seeing two other lawyers present and the lack of preparation on their part I realized the detailed journey we took to get a positive outcome was top notch performance on his part. Eric's firm and staff now can provide translation for the Spanish speaking community. Again, he is always looking forward to provide exemplary services to his clients.

Quick respinse to my question and didn't ignore my situation
Eric couldn't help me because he is located in Sioux Falls, whereas I needed legal help in Rapid City. He did give me the name and number of a colleague in Rapid City to better help me. I was really impressed because he didn't have to do that.

Eric Ronke is incredible at what he does - Prompt, Professional, and Personable
My husband and I hired Eric after consulting him on potentially filing bankruptcy. This was a very challenging and difficult time for us, and it took all we had to swallow our pride and reach out to an attorney to speak about our options. The process is complete now, and I can say that he made an extremely emotional process a lot easier to handle. Eric did not make us feel less than for deciding to file for bankruptcy, and he treated us with so much respect. He thoroughly explained every part of the process, answered questions very quickly via e-mail and phone (or in person if we were meeting with him), and he was honest with us on pro's and con's. If any individuals were ever in our situation and had to make this decision as well, I would without a doubt refer them to Eric. He takes care of his clients in a personable, prompt, and professional way.

Estate Planning
Eric is great at his job and made my wife feel comfortable with discussing uncomfortable topics so that our family is protected in the event one of us or both of us should leave this earth. I would recommend Eric to anyone.

Eric answered all of our questions. He was very easy to get a hold of. You spoke directly to him, not to a secretary that passed on the information. He handled our needs quickly. We will definitely be doing business with him in the future.

Superior Quality & Service
I retained Eric Ronke to work with my father on completing his estate planning documents (Will, Power of Attorney, etc.) and found him to be very knowledgeable about the subject matter. He quickly and personally responded to my telephone calls or emails and the cost for his services was extremely reasonable. My father enjoyed the conversations he had with Eric during the process and appreciated his commitment to excellence. After the documents had been drawn up and signed my father provided me copies and I must say I was extremely impressed with the thoroughness, attention to detail, and professionalism that Eric had put into the completion of the documents. As a law enforcement officer with over 27+ years of service I honestly cannot remember when the last time was when I reviewed legal documents that are commensurate with the high detail exhibited by the ones he had prepared for my father.

Eric is great to have on your team
You may be able to find an attorney with more years under their belt; however, that usually means they're stuck in their ways, they're hard to get ahold of, you most likely are not at the top of their priority list, and they're EXPENSIVE. Eric is extremely knowledgeable in the area of law he specializes in, and if he's not, he's more than happy to refer you to someone that is. While Eric is busy himself, he will give you the courtesy of following up with you and giving you time. I have recommended Eric to many people, including letting him handle my own personal matters. Give him a call for your legal matters.

Stellar Communication
When I contacted Eric regarding a Lease for Purchase contract, he immediately responded to my call. He quickly gathered the information necessary and was able to put this together for me very fast. He is extremely professional and I would highly recommend him to anyone needing legal advice.

Someone you can trust
I have had the pleasure of getting to know Eric through our BNI Chapter of business professionals. He is extremely knowledgeable about the law and, most importantly, is concerned about taking care of his clients. I've had to call on him with a few small business concerns and he was very helpful when explaining my options to me. I would highly recommend Eric for any legal assistance you may need.
