About this pro

How does your business stand out?

I listen to my clients. I earnestly try to talk with my clients and work with them on a strategy that they understand and feel good about. Several years ago I was corporate counsel for a restaurant chain that was expanding nationwide. As I searched for attorneys to represent the company in new states, I was struck at how many of these attorneys would spend most of my time talking about themselves and their firm. I would come out of those meetings feeling like the attorneys really had no idea about my company, its values, the motivations of the founders, or what we were trying to accomplish. This experience taught me to really listen to my clients rather than just selling myself as the right attorney for them.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

My job has two equally great attributes: (1) I love the novelty and variety of working with my diverse clients on creative, satisfying, solutions to their problems; and (2) I enjoy the challenge of finding good solutions to hard problems.

    Eric has been awesome during this whole process and helped me achieve my financial goals. He has a great team working with him and he offered the best price. I will recommend him to anyone needing this type of help. He took a lot of time to get to know me and my situation and I felt great about moving forward with my BK especially after meeting with some other lame attorneys that only had their best interest in mind. Thanks Eric and Lacey!!!!!

    I have not yet had the chance to meet with Eric personally, but his staff is very efficient and friendly. Eric has sent me very friendly and informative emails. Still to early to rank.
  • Greg K. Mar 26, 2015
    Eric and his team were extremely easy to deal with and able to understand our scenario and respond to it in a professional manner. We were faced with a very difficult situation that required international attention, but Eric was able to negotiate through the issues and resolve the case. I appreciated his efforts greatly and respected the attention given our difficult case.

  • Mike N. Mar 18, 2015
    Eric is a great bankruptcy attorney and we can't recommend him highly enough. It was a difficult time for us, and he was compassionate and understanding, we never felt like failures working with him. We were able to discharge IRS taxes and got a better result than we ever hoped. His staff is great and the stressful process couldn't have worked out better for us. Mike and Brandie
  • Lisa B. Mar 18, 2015
    My husband and I came to Eric very stressed out and in need of advice regarding bankruptcy to initially stop a garnishment of our paycheck. Eric calmed our fears and educated us on the pros and cons of bankruptcy so we could make an informed decision. He allowed us to make payments to his office for the cost of the bk which was very very helpful. Eric, as well as his staff, were there for us from start to finish and even afterward to answer any questions that might have come up. They are professional, reliable, compassionate and respectful. As our trustee meeting approached, we were growing more anxious, but were pleasantly surprised at the rapport and mutual respect Eric had with the trustee. In fact, we recently sent our daughter to Eric for legal counsel as well. I think the ultimate test for whether or not you would recommend a lawyer or any professional to someone would be if you actually referred a close family member to them! Eric definitely passed that test!!

    We needed a new lawyer to help with some legal stuff we were facing in our new business and we're recommended to Eric. He was amazing! He was easy to get a hold of, great at explaining things to us, and really helped save us a lot of money on this lawsuit. Thanks again.

Q&A

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
If you own a small business, at the very least, you will need a lawyer (or lawyers) with the following skills. 1. Contracts. You will need a lawyer who can understand your business quickly; prepare the standard form contracts you will need with customers, clients and suppliers; and help you respond to contracts that other people will want you to sign. 2. Business organizations. You will need a lawyer who can help you decide whether a corporation or limited liability company (LLC) is the better way to organize your business, and prepare the necessary paperwork. 3. Real estate. Leases of commercial space--such as offices and retail stores--are highly complex and are always drafted to benefit the landlord. Because they tend to be "printed form" documents, you may be tempted to think they are not negotiable. Not so. Your attorney should have a standard "tenant's addendum," containing provisions that benefit you, that can be added to the printed form lease document. 4. Taxes and licenses. Although your accountant will prepare and file your business tax returns each year, your lawyer should know how to register your business for federal and state tax identification numbers, and understand the tax consequences of the more basic business transactions in which your business will engage. 5. Intellectual property. If you are in a media, design or other creative-type business, it is certainly a "plus" if your lawyer can help you register your products and services for federal trademark and copyright protection. Generally, though, these tasks are performed by specialists who do nothing but "intellectual property" legal work. If your lawyer says he or she "specializes in small businesses," then he or she should have a close working relationship with one or more intellectual property specialist.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
America's judicial system is a lot like a Roach Motel--it's easy to get into court, but very difficult to get out once you've been "trapped." While nobody likes to pay attorneys' fees (heck, let's be honest--nobody likes paying or dealing with lawyers, period), but the fee a lawyer will charge to keep you out of trouble is only a small fraction of the fee a lawyer will charge to get you out of trouble once it's happened.
