experienced, tough yet compassionate
During the trauma of a divorce, every person needs a lawyer like Eric Larson. The combination of qualities Eric possesses enables one to pass through a difficult time with a little more ease. First, he is experienced, understands people and well-versed in the law. He will guide the novice through the world of divorce with language that you can understand. He knows when to intervene and when to let the divorcees attempt to work through things. He is always quick to respond to communications, which is relieving and greatly appreciated in the midst of a divorce. The team around him are the most wonderful people to work with. They had a eye for detail and caught the small things. Eric left out nothing in my settlement. I am so appreciative of his thoroughness and care. Eric can be tough when the situation requires it, defending his client with integrity, class and great compassion. He advocates for his clients like a mother bear with her cubs. A truly remarkable quality. In my opinion, he is one of the best, if not the best, divorce lawyer in town. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for an outstanding lawyer, with years of experience under his belt and the care and heart of a real gentleman.

Eric is amongst the best attorneys I have ever worked with
Eric is a thoughtful and knowledgeable attorney. His experience, advice and counsel has helped me incredibly in my case. He has handled all the difficult conversations with the other attorney while letting my ex and I discuss higher level issues without acrimony. I would highly recommend him.

Worst representation EVER
A very acrimonious divorce. Unfortunately, an ex-wife who was far more cunning than my lawyer. She refused to sign documents, he said 'It'll be OK, just send the check. If she signs it, that's good enough.' Well, it wasn't nearly good enough. I sent the checks, then when she tried to come back on me, not only did the judge say 'why didn't your attorney get this modification signed?', Eric refused to come and help the process with his testimony. Worthless representation. Oh, and by the way, it cost over $30,000.
