The Best of the Best
Mr. Eckman was an angel for my son. My son was facing years in Federal Prison and Mr. Eckman came in and fought for him. My son was truly blessed with this man in his corner. He is very professional, listens to his clients and he is very compassionate. I recommend him to anyone that needs someone in there corner any day of the week.

Highly Recommend Experienced Attorney
Consulted with Mr. Eckman concerning a legal matter and was seeking a second opinion. Mr. Eckman was very knowledgeable and went above and beyond exceeding my expectations. All of the legal advice during our consultation provided points of reason while outlining my cost/benefit analysis ultimately determining which direction to head in my case. If you have an opportunity to work with Mr. Eckman on a legal matter consider yourself blessed.

Aaron was the most professional, but at the time personal lawer I spoke with. I have had several attorneys but none that I can say truly cared about my situation and me as an individual. He was very easy to make appointments with and I'm from out of town and I was able to do conference calls with him. He cares about people's goals and people not money. He has done more for me than most people have my entire life. Thank you Aaron for everything. You are one of the most genuine people i've had the pleasure of meeting and working with!

Would 100% percent recommend
Being in the situation to need a lawyer is hard and scary enough. Especially because I wasn't from the area, I had a hard time finding a lawyer online. It was a nightmare trying to find a lawyer for my now fiancé. Finally I reached someone who recommended me to Mr. Eckman. It was truly a blessing to have a lawyer who always answered the phone, or returned calls promptly, who listened and answered questions, and who seemed to genuinely care. I had a great feeling that this was the lawyer we needed and I'm so glad we chose Aaron. Aaron was a wonderful lawyer by getting my fiancé's case state jail felony dismissed. I can't thank him enough. This story has a really happy ending: Not only did we get engaged in December but we are expecting in September! Aarron Eckman made it possible for us to continue with our lives. If you need a great lawyer, he is your guy!

Who said all lawyers are liars??? They were WRONG!!!
Aaron E. Eckman is TRUE to his word. No matter the out come of your situation it's worth having known him. I am in Florida my youngest daughter is in Texas I felt totally helpless until I spoke to Aaron. His yes is yes ,his no is no. No in between. Aaron doesn't just tell you what you want to hear. I truly respected that about him. If he doesn't have the answer he says let me check into that & get back with you & he does just that. He gets back with you w/o you having to hunt him down. Working with Aaron Eckman help me to have faith in the legal system again. I just wish I could have shaken his hand. MaTosha Naples, Fl
