  • "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."
