I could not be more pleased with Eric Frobish!! I had been going through a very drawn out divorce for a while before I decided it was time for a lawyer. Eric came in, accessed the situation, and laid the groundwork to get my divorce over. Very professional yet hard nosed enough to not get pushed around.

Eric Frobish
I used Eric as my attorney when I was getting divorced and then again during a custody battle recently. He was very knowledgeable and fought for what I wanted. It didn’t matter what time of day it was he would either call or email me to resolve things in my case quickly. I would definitely recommend him!

Great experience completing our Will
Eric assisted us in updating our Will and completing Living Wills and Power of Attorney documents. He was thorough in explaining the documents and answering our questions. Eric was competent, professional and friendly. His staff was also very responsive to our needs.

Excellent Lawyer
Eric came highly recommended and now we know why. We were extremely well represented due to his knowledge of the law and his ability to genuinely listen to feedback and then proceed with initiative. He and his staff are responsive and personable. Eric has earned our deep respect because of his good character, sharp insight, and legal acumen.

Very knowledgeable and thorough
I hired Mr. Frobish to help me iron out a custody issue and later returned to him when an order of protection was being contested. He always walked me through all the information I needed to make informed choices and never minced words when it came to what I was facing. I never doubted that he had my daughter's best interests in mind with any of his advice, and I appreciated his honesty in all matters. I would absolutely go back to him if I need legal representation again.

Fair and to the point.
Was an interesting process during covid. Would never expect to get through a divorce without physically meeting your attorney. Eric was very open and honest from day one. He stated how things would go and he was spot on. He was quick to talk to me about and come up with a plan to get offers back to my ex’s attorney in a very timely manner. All in all I feel he did a fantastic job in getting me through what could have been a very troubling process.

Excellent Divorce Attorney
Over the past year Eric Frobish has helped me navigate a divorce that came about under some extraordinary and difficult circumstances. He has been very accessible, responsive and has given me excellent counsel at every turn. My case has moved along as well as I could ever possibly expect. I am very pleased with his services and the results I have seen in my case. I highly recommend him as an attorney.

The Best Around
One of the things I've been most impressed about working with Eric over the last several years is his honesty and transparency. When I reach out to Eric, I'm confident I'm getting the absolute best guidance and he has my best interests in mind. He does not hide things and does not paint false pictures, he gives real advice and direction based on his experience, facts of the case, and his expertise. Those are invaluable traits that speak volumes about who he is as an individual and professional. I wouldn't want to work with anyone else.

highly recomended
I have unfortunately had to hire attorneys for several different reasons in the past, Eric frobish is by far the the best I've ever dealt with. I was never made to feel that I was an inconvenience to him nor was I rushed off the phone. He always got back to me quickly by email or phone and even contacted me on new years eve when he he knew I was anxious to speak to him. I hired him for a divorce and some small items became a possession issue. Never did he act as if they were petty or not important, even when I was ready to just give them up! He fought for me and what I wanted and was 100% sucessfull ! Very pleasant man to deal with. Thank you so very much!

Dismissive
Telephone consult was dismissive and bordered on condescending, but was willing to take the case. Decided against retaining.
Response from Eric Frobish May 15, 2020
Unfortunately, I can't address your concerns without knowing who posted this review, However, I would invite you to contact me directly by phone or video conference, at which point I would be happy to discuss this with you. Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, our firm has been forced to diverge from our preferred practice of consulting with prospective clients in person. Family law cases are often difficult, emotional and stressful in the best of circumstances. As a result, consultations in such cases are ALWAYS better conducted in person. Too much can be lost or misinterpreted during a phone call because of the inability to fully perceive tone, inflection, body language and visual cues in context. As everyone is doing, we are adapting to new realities of our profession caused by the virus situation and have recently established a new and better method and ability to conduct more personable video consultations. I'd be happy to follow up with you in that fashion if you'd like.

Family Attorney | Jun 26

"Eric is very knowledgeable and experienced in family law matters. He gives his all to every case. I have referred many cases to him and I always know the clients are in good hands when Eric represents them."
Divorce and separation Attorney | Apr 21
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I endorse this lawyer. Mr. Frobish is an outstanding litigator and a keenly insightful attorney. He easily identifies the important issues in need of resolution and he does not needlessly increase the costs of litigation by focusing his efforts on irrelevant issues. Not only would I refer a family member in need of counsel to Mr. Frobish, I would also seek to have him appointed as a guardian ad litem on contested custody and visitation matters, as he consistently serves the best interests of minor children."
Family Attorney | Mar 30
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I endorse Mr. Frobish for many reasons. Not only is he extremely knowledgeable in the area of family law, he is well-prepared and respected by his peers. Although he has been opposing counsel on several cases of mine over the years, I have always found him to be pleasant and trustworthy, and I look forward to working with him."
