Permanent Stalking Order
Recently I hired Eric to help me obtain a permanent stalking order against an individual who had been harassing me for several months. This harassment included a physical assault as well as verbal confrontation and disturbing unwanted mail. Eric guided me through the process, represented me at all necessary hearings, conducted research, and gathered evidence necessary to conclude this case successfully. He subpoenaed witnesses and scheduled court dates. Eric kept me informed throughout the entire process. As a result, I was awarded the permanent stalking order. I fully recommend Eric to anyone needing legal assistance and council.

Highly Recommended Eric McClendon
When I met Eric I was very overwhelmed and frightened about being involved in a legal battle with the father of my child. I like most mothers was unemployed and a single parent going up against another party who was in a finically better situation. I knew nothing about what I was getting into or who to trust. My first impression of Eric was that he was sincere, knowledgable and most of all he Wanted to help me and was not concerned about how much money I had . He made me sigh with relief . Something I felt rarely since being in this situation. I was involved in a year long battle that involved my infant childs schedule, child support and all the other extensive details that arise with these cases. Eric was always there for me . He listened to all I had to say, he would give me his professional advice and always made sure I knew all my options as a mother and client. I always felt he had my childs best interest at heart. He was just and fair. Reasonable. I knew he became an attorney for the right reasons and this I was so thankful for. He is a family man and knows how important families are. Eric was organized and was so easy to schedule meetings with even with my hectic schedule. I genuinely appreciate him and his services and would recommend him to anyone in need of a family law attorney and searching for a genuine attorney who has wits and will do any and all to help you . Even after I settled my case I realized something I had forgotten to ask him . I was thinking I shouldnt email him about it since I was no longer a paying client, but I felt he would help me . I sent him a question and not surprisingly Eric emailed me back with the information I needed. This was above and beyond amazing service and made me feel he still wants to make sure I have everything I need as a client regardless if my case was settled or not. Thank you Eric for doing what you do and helping others. Never truly know how much I appreciate you.

Help with my divorce adjustment
Eric helped me to make adjustments to my divorce settlement after I was laid off of my job. I learned of Eric's firm after reading an article in the Oregonian. Since most of the staff had went to smaller NW colleges I felt comfortable giving them my business. I attended a small NW college. I got my settlement resolved to my satisfaction in a timely manner. The cost was almost exactly what Eric had forecast. The resolution was made effective back to the time of my lay off. This saved me a lot of money. Most of our communications were by e mail. The whole process was quick and efficient.

Great advice
Eric gave me great advice. He is very knowledgeable and professional. I would recommend him to anyone that needs help in the legal world.

Restraining Order
Eric was very professional, and worked well with me on my case. I had an individual that abused the system and had a restraining order against me specifically stating incidents that were not true. Eric analyzed my case and broke down each individual sections and educated me on what to do about my case. I would recommend anyone with a restraining order filed against them to contact Eric ASAP. Eric knows what he is doing and will guide you through the whole process. Eric will give you no guarantees, but a peace of mind because he is well experienced in cases of that nature.
