He grasps very readily the picture of what’s going on and he is a quick observer. He’s a lawyer with an understanding of business – a bit of a psychologist who understands what makes people tick. He is quick and efficient. The billing is always reasonable. We are very happy with him.”

    -Chambers 2012

  • "I am an employee of a large bank and responsible for a complex commercial real estate portfolio of problem loans and special assets.  I find Erich to be a most valuable resource and team member.  Erich is totally engaged in evaluating the bank's position related to the debt obligation(s), the collateral securing the debt and, when possible, offering alternative solutions that oftentimes lead to enhanced resolutions benefiting both the customer and the bank.  His proactive problem identification, problem prevention and problem solving skills make him my "go to" legal counsel."
