Amazing Attorney!!!
Eric is a great attorney! He represented me on a traffic case and was phenomenal! He always kept me updated and informed and made sure I was aware of all possible outcomes related to my case. Eric was able to get me a great outcome on my citation. He's one of the best!

A Capable, Congenial Attorney
My husband and I were referred to Eric after a traffic accident involving serious charges that could have jeopardized my husband’s immigration status. We understood that Eric’s work was in criminal defense, but that he also had experience with immigration law. When we first met, he had already examined the case, and he listened to further details before giving us a knowledgeable and clear assessment of his concerns and his hopes for a favorable outcome. On the court date he was there with us, was comfortable and efficient with procedures that would have overwhelmed us, and was able to negotiate a plea bargain reducing charges that otherwise would have been more costly and more likely to jeopardize our immigration case. His attention to detail, including coordination with our immigration attorney, has been impressive. We were entirely satisfied with his work on our behalf, which is ongoing, and we recommend him enthusiastically and without reservation to anyone seeking counsel in such matters.

Excellent Attorney!!!!
Attorney Eric A. von Hacker was hired by my son and honestly at first I wasn't sure if you could help out because my son got a very substantial speeding ticket and I wasn't sure of the Georgia laws it was his first ticket ever and he felt horrible never ever gotten over on 316 in Georgia that is a hit to everyone it is po po Highway because of the Gwinnett County inn right off of 316 i& Buford Highway. We live very close to Buford Highway near Russell Ridge and you don't speed on Buford Highway either or you deserve that citation because there is not anytime you can drive down Buford Highway without seeing some form of law enforcement and I mean we get them all. Gwinnett Police Lawrenceville police other police departments and let's not forget Georgia State Patrol and if you need on 316 you need to mind your manners as well I will only go up to 62 if you're over 65 more than likely you're getting a ticket that speed limit is only 55 it's Gwinnett County's moneymaker back on track so he instructed my son to take two driving courses he really only needed to take one and this attorney explain to my son that if you took the extra class more than likely the judge would go a lot easier on him because he went above and beyond what the court would have asked of him anyways so let's just say hey he was doing any 72 in a 55 it might have even been 75 so attorney got the speed lowered and I guess it was lowered enough and with the classes my son took this ticket will never appear on his license and the insurance companies will never know about the speeding ticket are rates already through the roof due to car accidents. We are also going to use him as a personal injury attorney in one of those car accidents where this particular kiddo was knocked out and due to the severity of the concussion was out of school for a very long time. Personal injury is what he did for many years, I guess all that trial experience over the years in my opinion makes him very comfortable in front of any judge. He was very accessible to my son he spoke with Jon my son after he finished up in court and explained to him everything that took place and what he and the judge talked about .Attorney Eric A von Hacke put my extremely nervous son at ease. You should definitely meet with him to see how he can help you with your legal issues. I highly recommend this terrific Attorney and he is a nice person too.

Excellent Service
Good well done on my behalf from Mr. Hacke. He did not make promises that he could not keep. He was and is a straight shooter. He treated me respectfully and not as a dollar sign but as a real person who needed help. In all he got two of my charges dropped and my plea agreement reduced and I am very relieved and satisfied with the results. He showed real concern not only for me but for my children as well. His fees were reasonable and fair and he earned every dime. He also was very prompt with getting in touch with me when needed. If I ever need help again I will definitely use Mr. Hacke . I highly recommend his services.

Great Consultant
Mr. von Hacke was great in assisting me with help on a situation where I had been taken advantage of by Ryder Corp. I wasn't charged a fee also. He took time out of his busy schedule to assist me with the information I needed. An is available for any questions I may have.

Great Lawyer
Mr. von Hacke was a wonderful asset to have when I needed it the most. He was professional and most importantly he kept me up to date on every detail of the process. I would recommend him to anyone who needs legal services in the future.

Name Change With No Problems
Eric handled the name change for my child that had some quirks. He went above and beyond to keep me informed and handle any problems that arose to prevent me from being inconvenienced. He was willing to work with me with payment arrangements and understood that a made a choice to pick him for legal representation and acted accordingly.

Response from Eric von Hacke September 12, 2016
I take great pride in the advice and representation that I provide to my clients, so I am sorry to hear that you were not completely pleased with your representation. Although I am not sure to which case this review refers because it was left anonymously, I can say that I have never missed a deadline, as I would have been held accountable for such an egregious error. I invite you to contact me to discuss your concerns.
