We hired Eric early spring of 2013. He was recommended to us by a friend who had seen Mr. Thole in action at court. Nervous and scared for our future we chose Eric after speaking with him by phone. He was detailed and attentive to our needs and goals from the very beginning. He lived up to what we had hoped for in regards to litigation and/or settlement. He was extremely knowledgeable in the courtroom and well respected by everyone. We never felt afraid to call him with our concerns or needs throughout the entire process. Even weekends! Mr. Thole went above and beyond for his clients; he is a busy lawyer but always found time for us. I would highly recommend Eric Thole to anyone in the future.
