My husband and I recently met with Eric to discuss our estate planning needs. He presented a number of options that could accomplish our goals and was excellent at answering all of our questions. Eric never made us feel like we had to rush or make a decision we were not comfortable with. In fact, on several occasions, he held follow up meetings with us to discuss questions he had already answered just to ensure our understanding and comfort level. I would highly recommend Eric for any of your legal questions, especially related to estate planning. He is professional, extremely knowledgeable, and a pleasure to work with.
