[Eric] never failed to return my calls. Together we developed a strong defense. When in court, Eric was nothing but a professional’s professional. I was absolutely impressed and amazed on how much respect he demanded from the Judge and the prosecution. He quickly and surprisingly had my case dismissed. I even got a veiled apology from the prosecution. The guy’s a winner and will be one for a very long time.K.M.
