Eric is a talented attorney that truly cares about his clients and stands up for them. He understands the law and science. He is kind, but assertive. He has a rare talent and defines what a trial attorney means. I’m very impressed by how he uses technology as a tool to provide sophisticated representation. His legal team is courteous, professional, and punctual. His assistant Vicki has always made herself available to answer my calls and provide a quick response. I truly appreciate and respect the entire team. Highly recommend.

It was a tough fight
It was a long hard fight and Eric did a great job arguing the case to a jury. He worked hard and was always thoughtful of what we were going through. Now thanks to Eric I don't have to go through the rest of my life being angry and the Bicycle Club was found responsible for my brother's death.
Response from Eric Strongin February 14, 2019
Thank you Stacy. I hope you know that you and your family will always hold a special place in my heart. It was a very emotional trial, and I am glad that we were able to get through it together.

Wonderful attorney!
Eric went out of his way to make the process of my car accident go smoothly. I was clueless as to what to do and he explained everything and was there every step of the way. He fought for me to receive the maximum benefit amount. I hope I never have to go through something like this again, but if I do, I would use Eric again in a heartbeat!

I would feel panicy and scared when the opposition was on the stand. Then I would say to myself "stop, relax, Eric's got this." And sure enough, Eric had it. Best litigation attorney ever! ,

Best attorney experience imaginable
Simply put I have never had, or heard of, such a thoroughly positive attorney/client experience. I was provided outstanding and tireless advice and representation. Every step of the process was explained in detail and to my total understanding. I especially appreciated the ability to reach Eric directly by phone or e-mail. In those rare instances when it was necessary to leave a message I always received a prompt and comprehensive reply. Based on my experience I would not hesitate to recommend the legal advise and services of Eric Strongin.

Found Eric Strongin through Avvo. Could not have been more impressed
Seriously, this lawyer is impressive. I posted a question on Avvo and Eric Strongin wrote me back over the weekend. He included his phone number in the response with an invite to call him. We talked on a Saturday. Eric Strongin got my business insurance company to cover the claim they had denied coverage on. After that, he represented me to the successful conclusion of the case. Mr. Strongin is tenacious, intelligent, knowledgeable and extremely personable. Choosing him was one of the smarter business choices I have made. :)

I made the right choice!
For those times when I have needed an attorney, hiring Mr. Strongin was the absolute smartest choice. I have found him to be up front and honest and he returns my phone calls in a prompt manner. This is one of the things that is important to me. He works relentlessly until the successful outcome of the case is reached. I am really happy the way Mr. Strongin has handled everything. I don't think anyone will ever serve you better then attorney, Eric Strongin.
