Eric was brought into my case after it had been with another firm for over a year. Once Eric was brought on board things really started happening for my case and he made sure I understood the process. Eric really made me feel like he cared for me and my family and always gave me GREAT advice. In return, I would help him find the best fishing spots :) I always felt like Eric was shooting me straight and didn't just tell me what I wanted to hear. I will definitely recommend Eric to anybody looking for an advocate type lawyer. Eric and I also developed a friendship. I never felt like I was just another client.
Thank you Eric!

I was in an auto accident three years ago. The first auto accident I have ever been in, but the other driver was ticketed. This lead to slow and obvious pain that grew worse. Doctors, surgery, shots, emotional trauma from not being able to physically do things I used to.
That being said I want it known that Eric Olsen was so right for the lawyer to handle this case for me. I originally hired a close family friend, but he moved away and referred this case to Eric who he knew to be a good lawyer.
The most important thing I can say about Eric, was he was the perfect person for me , being unaware of what is involved in a Personal Injury claim. He was so understanding and helpful to me as we went through the whole thing. My deposition was frightening to me, and I wanted to say what I felt inside without getting emotional. He guided me through that, along with my husband, and I got through it.
He helped us get the fairest amount the final mediation. I would recommend anyone to him who needed a lawyer for an injury claim.

I would recommend Eric Olson to anyone. He was very professional and strived to educate me in making the best decisions when I had no idea how to decide what to do. He is very knowledgeable about his particular field of law and used that in my best defense. I am very pleased with the job that he did for me.
