    I give my strongest recommendation to Eric Mayer. I met and worked with then-Captain Mayer while serving at Fort Leonard Wood, MO. At that time, Eric was a Trial Defense Services Defense Counsel. Eric was a gifted lawyer and Soldier, with remarkable work ethic and stellar advocacy skills. I give my recommendation to him as a lawyer, Soldier, and person.

    Surprisingly, questions involving military law come with some regularity in my criminal law practice and writing, and the only lawyer I turn to is Eric. Both his depth of knowledge and his ability to grasp the significant issues are extremely impressive. I wouldn't turn to anyone else for military law, and I'm honored to know Eric and have the ability to work with him. He really is a terrific lawyer.
