As a student at the University of California, Merced, I suck out legal advice when my landlord was illegally withholding my security deposit. I consulted with Mr. Beiswanger and it was through his advice that I successfully filed a small claims case against my landlord at the time. Mr. Beiswanger had great solutions and most importantly made me feel at ease. He worked with my busy schedule and financial status.

Very professional, timely, and caring!
He was extremely helpful in assisting me through a tenant/housing related case. His advice was helpful and honest. He was also very detailed and timely. Overall, a great experience and would definitely reach out to him again in the future - if need be!

Intelligent with intangibles.
I sought help in a real property dispute and business dispute. I got everything I requested and more, the fees were reasonable, and the going through the process with Eric was less stressful than I imagined.

I found Eric while searching for pro-bono attorneys. I needed some legal advice on an urgent and important matter regarding a contract with a supplier for my startup. I was a no-budget entrepreneur lacking funds to pay for the needed professional services. Eric was responsive and empathetic to my situation. He provided advice and assistance that not only help me with the matter at hand but also other legal hurdles that I would face as a startup. I was very grateful to find Eric. I truly felt like someone was looking out for me despite my less-than-ideal financial situation. He cared and cared to help me find a solution to ensure I did not compromise my business in anyway despite my financial challenges.

Excellent Attorney That Cares
I was referred to Eric Beiswinger by a family member was denied legal representation by several attorneys. However, only three months after hiring Eric Beiswinger they received a $150,00.00 settlement and without judicial intervention to boot! Hearing such an amazing testimony, I consulted with Eric Beiswinger on a very complex Administrative matter. I am so thankful I did. He is an attorney with high intelligence, strong analytical and advocacy skills, and an ability to communicate effectively (both verbally and in writing). He has a passion for his clients and has a high level of committed to their case. His people skills are excellent which I believe are very important. He will do everything in his power to help you. He even delegated research on my case to his legal assistant, at no charge to me. He exceeded my expectations. My only regret is not finding him sooner. He is by far the very best!

Eric was hired to help me file for bankruptcy and was incredible helpful. He was knowledgeable and efficient. I was surprised how fast everything happened. He made himself available to any questions I had and I couldn't have asked for a better experience.

Excellent Lawyer, Highly Recommend!!
Eric has been an excellent resource for my legal concerns. I greatly appreciate the time and effort that he has put into each of my disputes. As an undergraduate student as UC Merced it can be intimidating to seek out assistance for these matters but Eric ensured that I was treated with the utmost respect and gave me the same attention that he would give any other client. I strongly advise for anyone requiring legal assistance to consult with Eric!

Excellent Lawyer
I am so pleased with the job Mr. Beiswanger did for me. I had troubles concerning a trust my parents created 15 years ago, and my siblings decided to cut my control of my portion out and keep it for themselves. Eric aggressively fought for my right's, got them restored quickly, and didn't overcharge me for his work. He was an expert in his services. I personally don't think that anyone could have represented me better.
