Eric received a significant number of 4+ stars in 2017

Best Lawyer I've Ever Had!
He handled an insurance claim. State Farm denied my foundation claim after I had been buying insurance from them for 20 years. We fought for six months and State Farm paid to fix the foundation and his attorney fees. My life is now back to normal.

Cypress Texas Lloyds Denied Me Until Dick Sued Them
My insurance company repeatedly denied my pool claim. Dick sued them and they paid me well over what I originally asked for plus Dick's fees.

I WAS SO IMPRESSED WITH ERIC DICK. HE TOOK MY CASE AND WE WON!
Travelers insurance took my money for twenty something years. You know they would have canceled my policy if I paid them late for any reason. We had bad storms in Houston. These storms really did a number on my roof. I made a claim with Travelers insurance. They came and looked and my roof and said that the damage was old! I was like OMG. If it is old damage I had insurance with you. You should pay for it because it got damaged when I had insurance with you. You collected my premiums and don't want to pay anything. I hired Eric Dick and he sued Travelers. They fought and fought and fought and fought. They finally pay my claim and his attorney fees. Thank you so much!!!!

Professional, caring, and hardworking.
In April my house was hit with a freak hail storm that busted my windows and damaged my roof. My insurance company, Cypress, thought that only a portion of my roof should be replaced. Eric Dick was hired to help me make Cypress pay for valid hail damage to my roof caused by storms. After much fighting, Cypress paid for all my damages and paid for Eric Dick's attorney fees.

IF I EVER NEED AN ATTORNEY IN THE FUTURE I'M CALLING DICK LAW FIRM
Dick law firm helped me with my denied life insurance claim. My husband passed away and what made matters worse was that my insurance company didn't want to pay the policy. This was a small burial policy. It was really pathetic. Globe insurance was looking for any excuse to not pay this claim. Thank you Dick law firm for making them pay my claim and your fees.

Highly Qualified and Knows What He is Doing
I found Attorney Eric Dick by looking through the interenet. He helped with my claim against Safeco. Safeco didnt wanna pay to fix my roof. They said it was not covered. They said the storm did not cause my roof to leak. They said I didn't need a new roof. Attorney Dick sued them and got me a new roof. Thank you attorney Eric Dick.

Passion Passion Passion
I was in such a jam when an accidental fire burned my grain store that was in my business for years. Althiugh I had coverage, they tried, as my nephew would say "work me". Anyway my generation calls it "screw me". I was distraught. Sad started drinking after 10 yrs through God and AA quit that. Then a friend (a trusted friend), referred me to Mr Dick. I figure why not? Without dragging this review out-Mr Dick went up hard nosed against the insurance company and got me every dime i was entitled plus piece of mind. That was tough year for me and this lawyer is subperb. Annie

Honest, candid, and trust worthy
Eric is a nice guy. He told me up front that he thought we had a decent case. He told me that it may 8 months to get my roof replaced by the insurance carrier. I'm thankful that he helped me fix my home. Thanks Eric!

American Risk didn't want to replace my roof. Dick made them pay.
I've been with american risk insurance company for fifteen years. My house started leaking from a hail storm. My insurance company didn't want to pay to fix my roof. After a lawsuit they paid me.
Posted by Laurence Malone | March 3, 2014
Erick helped get my roof replaced. Farmers repeatedly denied my claim until I hired Erick. A
Aggressive attorney that wouldn't stop until Farmers insurance paid for my roof. The adjuster came out and wasn't interested in replacing my roof even though all my neighbors got free roofs. Farmers only said that 3 shingles were damaged and only wanted to replace 3 shingles. I couldn't believe it because I have been with them for 23 years.

EXCEPTIONAL LAW FIRM
I retained the Eric Dick Law Firm to Modify the existing Parent-Child Relationship. My situation was complicated as I live out of state and involved obtaining custody of my disabled adult Son and required rectifying a existing arrearage judgment (against me). I have had ongoing legal issues since my divorce (2001) involving custody and child support. Prior to retaining Eric Dick - I retained a law firm whose attorneys who were more interested with perpetuating my case (costs) then resolving it. Eventually, do to lack of money I was forced to represent myself (CATASTROPHIC MISTAKE). My brief attempt at "Pro Se" led to a Child Support Arrearage Judgment against me that (due to the amount + interest) would never be paid off. Then I found Eric Dick - It is no exaggeration when I say the Eric Dick Law Firm changed my life :D. I cannot convey the long term, emotional and financial toll these legal matters have taken upon me and my loved ones. Resolution of the onerous legal issues/obligations changed the lives of my son, myself and everyone associated with this case. We thank you Eric & Staff I highly recommend the Eric Dick Law Firm - Resolute - in pursuing the case to resolution Empathetic - in listening to the issues (my whining) Responsive - in attorney / client communications (phone calls, emails and opposing counsel submissions) Creative - in forming strategies to rectify legal issues Timely - in implementing those strategies Direct / Clear - to the point explaining the law (everything) to the Client Patient - no explanation required Last but not least - A Winner - Eric Dick won my case in one year and my issues are resolved

It took a lawsuit for Farmers to pay its claim!
I tried everything to get my insurance claim paid. It actually took a lawsuit before Farmers paid my insurance claim. Insane. Thanks Eric.

Made Allstate pay its claim
Allstate denied my insurance claim. He made them pay the claim, attorney fees, and interest to boot. Cheers for Mr. Dick. Took about 4 months to settle the case.
