Eric a solid, straight-shooting, fair and respectful lawyer. As a rookie to the world of litigation and counsel, I had only preconceptions to aid me in seeking legal counsel. I am very pleased to say that Eric's assistance in our legal ordeal has helped me call into question those woeful lawyer stereotypes which are often the brunt of jokes. Eric communicated with us as a friend and mentor, and always exercised prudence when engaging in our case in order to maximize the value of his services.

The specifics of my case were in some areas new or unknown to myself and to Eric. Eric was very capable and willing to undertake the needed research to handle this situation. The case took some unexpected turns and seemed totally hopeless. Through his attention to detail and encouraging me to be patient, my case came to a more than satisfactory conclusion. I will refer anyone in need to Eric Swartz.

Eric represented me in a wrongful termination settlement. He maximized my settlement, minimized the time it took to complete the process, and set my expectations about what would happen next throughout the process. I was very pleased with his professionalism and thorough understanding of the settlement process. I strongly recommend Eric to anyone who believes they have been wrongfully terminated. He is someone you can trust to deliver your best possible outcome.

I've had limited experience with Eric at this point in time, so I'm not in the best position to evaluate him. From my contact, he has exhibited no deficiencies and has performed well in all respects. Whether he is good enough to be given an "A" rating, I do not have enough experience to say one way or the other.
