My husband was arrested for wrongful theft charges while he was on probation. Mr platten and his assistant Samantha kept me informed throughout the entire process! And through Mr. platten's amazing attorney abilities justice was served and all charges were dropped! I want to sincerely thank Mr. Platten and his team for everything they have done for my family! I would never have gotten through this without them!

Mr. Platten advised me to be straight forward and ask if I was fired and request it in writing, however it's been a week and still no response. Thank you so much. Yes, I would definitely hire Mr. Platten if I could afford him. I'm suspended without pay.

I contacted Mr. Erick Platten. The advice given was "STRAIGHT TO THE POINT!" Even though my employers still have not responded, Mr. Platten told me if I need him to just call and I will definitely be calling. Thanks for your help!!!

Erick is a very knowledgeable lawyer. He did everything he could and looked at anything that could help him win a case. I was extremely nervous that my case couldn't be dismissed but he worked with what we gave him and got to work. He was able to dismiss my DUI just when I thought nothing could be done.

I was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon - a felony that could have resulted in 2-20 years in prison. Although I had no history of violence, I did have a history of DWIs - the last one being 13 years earlier. After researching lawyers in East Texas and reading reviews, I came across Erick Platten who had a 10/10 rating on Avvo.com. Erick showed a sincere concern and agreed to meet with me and my wife at his office after hours to discuss the case. We were very impressed and hired Mr. Platten. Less than six months after I was charged, Erick was able to arrange for deferred adjudication and was able to keep me from having a conviction. Erick Platten is a very nice and knowledgeable attorney. I strongly recommend him.

If you are reading this review, then it is assumed that you are in a similar situation as I was for the last couple of months. I have always lived my life in line with the law. I never dreamed I would ever be in a position to ever need the assistance of a criminal lawyer. Therefore, I was not prepared for what had happened to me...
Unfortunately I was completely blind sided by a Felony Assault Charge by the State in Cass County TX. Being that children were within the area, CPS was also involved in my case as well. I quickly needed a criminal attorney to fight this charge, and had no idea as to where to begin. Like you, I began researching lawyers in the area and reading reviews. After researching many local attorneys, I came across Erick Platten's reviews, and I was blown away. This was definitely the person I wanted on my side to fight for me.
I immediately contacted Mr. Platten. He was very understanding of my situation, and obviously very knowledgeable. When Mr. Platten told me the fee that would initially be charged, I'm not going to lie... I was very overwhelmed. It was a very large sum of money, and as I stated earlier, I was not very prepared for it at all. I knew I'd be fighting for my life throughout all of this, and did everything I possibly could to come up with the fee... and let me tell you, Mr. Platten is worth every penny!
He immediately started on my case. He communicated with me regardless of the day/time in order to give me some sense of stability/comfort throughout the process. Mr. Platten showed a sincere concern for my situation and although he made no promises as to the end result, he absolutely committed to doing everything he possibly could in order to resolve my case as quickly as possible.
Several months later my case was finally dismissed by the DA, and I was finally able to get my life back. I never would have made it through all of this without the help of Mr. Platten. I could not have selected a better attorney. I pray I will never again find myself in need of a criminal attorney... But if I do, or anybody I know does... Erick Platten will be the only choice for me or my family!
Thank you Mr. Platten! I truly appreciate all you have done to help me get this resolved...

I was facing 15 to life on one of the biggest drug cases to hit the Tyler area in years. Felony possession of marijuana, Felony possession of tetrahydrocannabinol, Engaging in Organized Criminal Activity, and unlawfully carry of a weapon. I thought my life was over until I contacted Mr. Platten. From the beginning he assured me he would take care of everything and give me a chance to continue my life outside of prison. After 10 months of battling a case that the media blew out of the water due to the well known local DJ involved, he finally convinced the prosecutor and judge to give me a more than fair deal. I was always able to contact Mr. Platten and his assistant thought the whole deal. They were both very knowledgeable and prompt with every aspect of my cases. His fee to represent me was more than reasonable and I believe he was worth every dime spent. He got 2 of my charges dismissed without me having to testify or "snitch" on anybody involved in my case. This is something I was very persistent in not having to do and not once was I ever asked or pressured to do so. I ended up getting 5 years deferred adjudicated probation with no fine, no community service, and eligible to have early release after 24 months. My family and I greatly respect and admire Mr. Platten for everything he did for me during this hard time in my life. I highly recommend Erick for any trouble you may be in. Although outcomes are not always predictable, I truly believe Platten Law is the best law firm in the state of Texas. Don't hesitate to call him when your life is on the line. He saved mine and he can save yours as well. Thank you Erick for everything you did and making it possible for me to continue my journey through this thing we call life!

Erick Platten got my aggravated assault dismissed. I was looking at twenty years but he showed I didn't what they said I did. This was a very difficult time for me an my family. If your in trouble you need to hire him.

I highly recommend Erick Platten! He did so much for me! I was indicted for felony forgery of a financial instrument in Smith county. When we went to court he convinced the judge to granted me deferred adjudication. On top of that he dedicated a lot of time and hard work to convince the judge to transfer my probation to Kansas successfully. He is a great attorney. He is the one to hire as your attorney. Erick also helped me get tickets dismissed in another county for a totally different case!
