We had an emergency situation requiring knowledge, guidance and confidentiality. Eric Anderson was immediately available, guided our actions and, maybe most important, helped us have a good attitude about what mattered and what didn't. The outcome was totally favorable for us which was based on both the facts of the matter and Eric's legal guidance. He will be our professional, as well as personal, attorney in every legal matter

Eric was extremely responsive and called and communicated when he said he would. My daughter found herself in need of a criminal defense attorney after calling 911. She did not want to give the police officer a statement without her mom or an attorney present and was subsequently arrested. Eric was extremely proactive in his defense strategy, but more importantly he took time and care in explaining the process to us. Eric went above and beyond by providing assistance in any area he felt would impact the case. We felt confident in Eric's competency and he was successful in her defense.

Eric has just recently become my General Council. I appreciate his no nonsense approach to the law and respect the guidance he has given me in just the short time I have worked with him. What I greatly respect is that if he doesn't know the answer to a particular question, he goes the extra mile to find the answer out so I can approach my situation with prudence. Very happy with his service.
Adam Ryan, Criminal defense Attorney
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
Having opposed Eric Anderson on several matters, I know he is a tenacious trial attorney who represents his clients aggressively and ethically. His courtroom demeanor is uncompromisingly professional yet uniquely entertaining and effective. Without hesitation, I highly recommend Eric Anderson.
