Eric legit saved me from a long sentence
Eric.. Brother thank you! I was on probation out of Harris county for an aggravated assault with deadly weapon. And I got charged with another aggravated assault with deadly weapon in Travis county. I had shot a guy 11 times(thank god he didn’t die) during an attack. Persecutor was trying to paint me as a villain!! Not going to lie I was scared. Thought I was going to get like 20 TBH. Eric went in, fought hard for me. He kept talking them down on the time. Eventually he got them down to literally the bare minimum of 2 years!! I legit just signed today and can move forward with my family as a free man. I can attribute that to Mr. Lim. Thank you again. Peace be upon you.

Fantastic
Mr Lim is fantastic to deal with - from start to finish. He's brutally honest (whether or not you want to hear it), prepares you for the worst while giving you an idea of the best outcome, and tells you what his prior clients with similar situations have experienced (but not making promises - don't hire anyone that makes promises!). He sets expectations for you right out of the gate - on every side. He's extremely approachable and very knowledgeable. I'm sure I was one of the more needy clients he's dealt with, yet he was always great. Not a good liar when he said I was great to work with though ;) (I know I was.. needy) My outcome wasn't the Disney ending that everyone wants, but it was far better than I expected, given how bad I screwed everything up (and I'm not a Disney character anyway). I feel as if Mr. Lim went well above and beyond. It also helps that he seemed to have a very good rapport with the judge and prosecutor in my case. Part of what you're paying for is an attorney's experience with the specific people trying to put you in jail; a skilled attorney will know what they're willing to do. Mr. Lim is obviously very experienced navigating the court system.

Great to work with - would work with again if needed
I was in a bind when I got my DUI. I had just got out of jail and had never been arrested, I had no clue where to go and just needed some guidance and help. A buddy of mine recommended Mr Lim and I gave him a call. Not only was Mr Lim my attorney he also felt more like my pschologist. He helped me through the process and did a ton of stuff to get my charged dropped down to the lowest punashment (there was absolutely no way it was getting dropped completely so he did next best). He was in constant communication with me - he said from the beginning that it was going to take awhile and everytime there was an update he let me know. He answered all my questions about what ifs and possibilities and he kept it real the entire whole time. The first plea bargain was not in my favor but within a couple weeks we where able to get it down to something we both agreed on. All the positive reviews about Mr Lim are accurate and I would hire him again!

Nobody Better
Eric represented me in a number of cases but mainly on a felony evasion charge. I also had multiple possession charges. He is an amazing lawyer and every time I thought the worst case scenario was the most plausible outcome Eric found a way to get the best outcome. I’m over joyed with the outcome of my case. He did everything he could to keep me out of prison and in a comfortable situation. He is respected by judges in multiple counties and obviously works really hard. Couldn’t ask for a better lawyer and I’m being serious. He made a very stressful situation a little more bearable knowing I had him on my team. I wouldn’t look any further if you are seeking council. Eric is the best you’ll find.

Excellent Representation
From start to finish my experience with Eric was nothing short of outstanding! First and foremost, Eric was extremely easy to talk to. Eric was always available to answer my questions and made me feel like my case was a priority. He was able to have my case dismissed completely, with very little work on my end! I wholeheartedly recommend Eric to ANYONE seeking legal representation, you WILL NOT regret it!

Outstanding Attorney!
Eric Lim is highly skilled and diligent. When looking for a lawyer his response time was impressive. He listen to my case and explained everything clearly and assured me not to worry. Throughout the process he kept me informed and told me exactly what I needed to do. Eric was able to dismiss my case and I couldn’t be happier with his service. I highly recommend him.

Great criminal defense attorney.
If it wasn’t for Eric I would have been indicted by a grand jury. Hiring him was the best choice I made. Communication throughout his representation was outstanding. I feel that he literally saved my life. If you want a criminal defense attorney that will have your back and get things done, call Eric Lim.

Best decision I made!
I got pulled over for a dui on Christmas Day. I expected the worst. I got tons of emails and mail from lawyers around town. After inquiring with several I felt Eric was the most upfront and honest. He was also very reasonably priced with no hidden fees. Everyone else I talked to had high prices and just told me they would get it dismissed not even knowing all the facts. Eric told me my worst case scenario but ended up getting me the best possible verdict! Dui was dismissed. I thought I would have probation and lots of additional cost added. That wasn’t the case. It’s hard to believe he was able to do this but he did. He did it quickly and I never stepped foot in a courtroom. Hire him!

Criminal defense Attorney | Aug 11
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I endorse this lawyer. Eric substituted in as counsel on a former client of mine. The client was a very challenging person to represent. My relationship with this client had been strained and we reached a point where we both felt it was best he find another lawyer. Eric took over the case and was able to resolve it with a dismissal. I know from my own experience that the client was someone who was very difficult to satisfy and who made requests that were against his own interests. I can say from my own observations of Eric that he is bright, hard working and professional."
