TESTIMONIALS

  • I was fighting the false statements from my ex-wife that she used to get a domestic violence restraining order against me. I hired Eric to come to Sacramento and represent me. He got the restraining order dismissed and worked to get my ex and I to come up with a reasonable agreement for our communication issues. He kept me informed of the case status online and in phone calls. I am very happy with his work.

  • Excellent Criminal Defense Attorney. Eric was extremely responsive and called and communicated when he said he would. My daughter found herself in need of a criminal defense attorney after calling 911. She did not want to give the police officer a statement without her mom or an attorney present and was subsequently arrested. Eric was extremely proactive in his defense strategy, but more importantly he took time and care in explaining the process to us. Eric went above and beyond by providing assistance in any area he felt would impact the case. We felt confident in Eric's competency and he was successful in her defense. I recommend Eric Anderson."

  • Gave our family great guidance "We had an emergency Employment/Labor situation requiring knowledge, guidance and confidentiality. Eric Anderson was immediately available, guided our actions and, maybe most important, helped us have a good attitude about what mattered and what didn't. The outcome was totally favorable for us which was based on both the facts of the matter and Eric's legal guidance. I have previously worked with other lawyers. Now, Eric will be our professional, as well as personal, attorney in every legal matter"

  • Eric is extremely knowledgeable in all arenas of litigation. His skill set both in and out of the court room is superior. Although I was technically opposing counsel on a cross-complaint, Eric and I had a cordial, professional, and friendly relationship. If you are fortunate enough to have Eric on your side, relax, you're in good hands.

  • Wow! I was impressed with Eric's work in that court room. He asked the most awesomest[sic] questions to that cop that even the secretaries had that look of being impressed on how he handled the officer. The officer stuttered and lied his way into a dismissed case.Thank you Eric for a job well done
