SAVING YOUR BUSINESS, YOUR ASSETS AND YOUR ASS. CALL (909) 328-1430 FOR A FREE CONSULTATION TODAY!

Our primary goal is to solve problems.  To do that in our business practice we identify your issues and solve them before they become problems. In our criminal practice, we use every resource at our disposal to question the prosecution's position and the evidence. When the government comes knocking, we knock back with a team approach designed to accurately assess what defenses are available and how best to protect the rights of you or your loved ones.

I have lived all over and come across people from wide swaths of life. This gives me an understanding of the concerns of people. We represent the person (or business) first and not merely a case. Our view of lawyering is that we are called "counselor" for a reason. And we counsel well. 

I am an experienced trial lawyer with over 100 jury trials, I remain committed to exhausting all possible solutions in order to protect the rights of my clients. Our approach to contracts and business matters for our clients is always with the eye on what could happen if there is a trial or dispute between the parties? This allows us the insight to look at worst-case scenarios and try to strengthen our client's hand before there are any problems.

I also enjoy time with good libations and good cigars because of the great conversations such an atmosphere creates. And clients are always welcome to join us for either.

OUTSTANDING Attorney!
Eric Anderson is an OUTSTANDING attorney: knowledgeable, supportive, experienced, & hardworking. He agreed to represent me in an unusual legal matter where the odds of success were slim -- slim or not, Eric believed in me and my case. Despite the odds, he advocated vigorously on my behalf, both in court hearings and with opposing counsel outside the courtroom. Although I ultimately didn't get the outcome I'd hoped for, Eric was awesome to work with and I am grateful for his efforts on my behalf. I'd retain him again in a heartbeat! I highly recommend Eric Anderson without reservation to any potential client.

Honest and trustworthy!
I loved everything about Eric! He was honest and upfront about our case and his fees. He was a breath of fresh air after dealing with many awful lawyers in the past.

Excellent Criminal Defense Attorney
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.

Gave our family great guidance
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 D. Anderson
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.

BACKHOE - UNAUTHORIZED CHARGES
ERIC , HELPED ME ACQUIRE MY BACKHOE MACHINE BACK FROM A SMALL BUSINESS THAT WAS TRYING TO CHEAT ME OUT OF MONEY FOR SOME WORK DONE WHICH I HADNOT AUTHORIZED. THIS BUSINESS MOVED MY EQUIPMENT WITHOUT MY PERMISSION AND WAS ASKING ME FOR THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS MORE THAN I HAD AGREED TO PAY. ALL OF THEIR WORK WAS DONE WITHOUT ANY WRITTEN DOCUMENTATION OR SIGNED CONSENT FROM ME. ERIC WAS QUICK TO COMMUNICATE TO THE BUSINESS OWNER ALL AREAS THAT HE FAILED TO FOLLOW AND WHAT THE CONSEQUENCES WERE IF HE DIDN'T AGREE TO GIVE BACK MY EQUIPMENT AND PAY DAMAGES. I WAS VERY HAPPY WITH EVEYTHING ERIC DID FOR ME.
