Wonderful experience with great outcome!
I was so fortunate to find Mr. Nesbitt on my google search when I needed assistance with a realestate issue. He was very knowledgable of real estate law and professional in his interactions with the opposing attorney. He listened to details of the events with patience and understanding and developed a plan of action which yeilded excellent results. He kept me informed at every step and ensured I was included in all necessary decisions. I would be most happy to work with Mr. Nesbitt again if the need ever presented itself.

Respectful, Thorough and Empowering
My husband and I recently leased our first commercial space are glad we chose Eric and his team to assist us. Eric provided us with excellent insight which allowed us to make the best decisions possible for our business. He really listened to what was important to us and having him in our corner helped us feel empowered during the negotiation process. Eric was responsive, respectful and an overall pleasure to work with. We will absolutely use him in the future!

Great Experience, highly recommend
Eric was a pleasure to work with. We came in with a landlord/tenant issue and had contacted multiple lawyers. He gave us piece of mind, made us feel respected, and he listened. He took the time to hear us out, take notes, offer guidance, and follow- up. We had a consultation and then I called him a few days later in panic and he took about 20 minutes out of his day to calm me down and offer advice. He then checked in a few weeks later to get an update. He went above and beyond and seemed comfortable working with us as a queer couple.

Professional caring attorney
Eric Nesbitt is a man of integrity, vast experience (more than 20 years), who has an exceptional knowledge of the law. We hired him for two separate matters. Impeccable ethics and an unparalleled work ethic make him an outstanding attorney who is capable, meticulous, and diligent. He is a straight-talker who will not tell you what you want to hear, but what you need to know. I highly recommend him, and feel fortunate to have him on our team. Thanks Eric!

Excellent Service
I contacted Mr. Nesbitt to help me with the legal battles of purchasing my deceased fathers house. Mr. Nesbitt and his staff were extremely helpful and competent throughout the process. He kept me well informed as to what was going on and what to expect going forward. Mr. Nesbitt and his staff took care of all the court filings and also helped with complications with the lender that I was using. I would definitely recommend Mr. Nesbitt to anyone facing property difficulties and I am extremely grateful for the service that he provided.
