Eric guided me through a tumultuous time in my life
Getting hurt on the job left me in a quandary, lack of income combined with an inability to work. I didn't want to screw up any potential payout coming my way, so I looked for an attorney and found Eric and his associates. I hired Eric as my attorney and things went swimmingly from there. The workers comp process can be convoluted and tedious, but after hiring Eric the process was explained to me clearly and they answered every question I had every step of the way. I can't imagine a scenario where things would have gone better for me with anyone else, Eric and his team were that good.

We have been fortunate to have his experience and this has continually helped us during the tougher times. I would strong recommend Eric and is company (law firm) to anyone who needs strong representation.
