My case for personal injury was one that was tough to prove as my personal work history is unique and complicated. Eric was professional and kept me focused through the process of reaching a settlement while preparing me for a possible trial. Thankfully, we settled graciously and reasonably so that I could get on with my life! As always, I will send Eric my referrals as he is a trustworthy attorney and friend. Thank you Eric!

When I was hit in an auto accident it seemed that I just wasn't getting a fair deal from the insurance company who's client was responsible for the collision. It was a great comfort to know that Eric, as my advocate, was making sure that the scales were evened out. Because of Eric's experience and diligence I received a settlement that was much more fair than I would have received otherwise. Threw the entire process Eric listened to me, kept me informed, gave me his professional guidance and brought my case to a desirable conclusion. I highly recommend Eric Nelson.
