Very professional. I recommend Erik Feingold
After an accident turned my health and my life upside down, I fortunately hired Erik Feingold to represent me. He listened and responded to my seemingly endless lists of questions; treated me with respect and genuine concern; took a conservative approach to the case but then took my view into consideration when I was willing to take a calculated risk. He and his staff were professional and cordial - meeting deadlines and returning calls in a timely manner. He juggled many variables. He remained tough with the opposition and negotiated the middle ground between the perilous extremes to win the case. Thank you, Erik!

Sometimes bad things happen to good people. When they do it is amazing to have someone who puts your priorities first.
A book could be written for my situation (likely something similar could be said about most people's stories regarding the nature of this business). I hired Erik after consulting a few lawyers and quickly found that he was not only more optimistic about my predicament than the other lawyers, he was attentive to my apprehension toward pursuing legal matters (which was a big deal to me), he also re-evaluated the details of my case and was able to present several options that the others either did not care to present or were just unable to find, hidden in the details. Without discussing specifics, Erik delved deeply into maritime law as well as many other facets of my particular case until he was able to find both the strategy and ethical approach that tailored to my unique situation. The end result was absolutely fair and although (as I am sure is common) the path of this case faced many less than ethical challenges from the opposing legal team, Erik was always able to illuminate a path toward a more favorable outcome. If you have reached a place in your life where legal representation is required, I would highly recommend Erik Feingold and his team.
