TESTIMONIALS

  • “I continue to be amazed by his ability to recall a small fact from earlier on and how to apply it to our benefit.”

    -Chambers 2012

  • “Very good, very well-rounded, and they have a lot of expertise in multiple fields. They do a very good job and are very cost-effective. They have very capable people at multiple levels, so if it’s associate-level work we’re not getting charged for a partner doing it.”

    - Chambers 2014

  • “He is great. The most important thing I think is judgment, whether more aggressive or more conservative than a firm’s first inclination. Tom’s got a great sense of discretion and judgment and he clearly knows the topic area very well. We never have an issue with us having to prompt ‘try this theory’. He’s smart and very pleasant, responsive as anything.”

    -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."
