Client Testimonials

San Jose Criminal Defense Lawyer


Erik is a knowledgeable, efficient, and patient lawyer. We were totally unprepared for our encounter with the justice system. Very few people expect to need a criminal lawyer, we were no exception. Hiring Erik was the best decision we could have made. He calmed us down, patiently dealt with our issues, kept us informed, and successfully negotiated the best resolution for us. He is very easy to talk to and his thorough explanation of each step in the process minimized the stress we felt. He is a hero to us.

Just an added note. Even though our case was successfully concluded, Erik still was available for clarifications as needed. The legal system is complicated. We are so lucky to have found a dedicated, smart lawyer to guide us!

I used Erik for a legal matter and he did an excellent job. The think I like the most was that even when the courts and the system was trying to convince us to just compromise and I insisted I am correct and want to continue to fight. He stood by me and kept on going and finally we won the case. I wanted to appreciate his effort so writing this review. Erik, thanks as if you would have not believed in my vision and thoughts and kept on fighting the unfair system to the common people would have not got the blow which we did by fighting. I loved his patience and listing skills. Not that I need to have more lawyers in future but if I do run into a situation I would use Erik for sure.

Erik has everything you need in a lawyer. He is very knowledgeable in family and criminal law. I had a mixture of two overlapping matters and he totally made the winning and reasonable argument. He has experience with the System, which helps a lot and knows the approach to take based on your situation. I highly recommend him he is very accessible and just reassuring. He makes you feel at ease when you are very distressed. if you’re looking for someone you can rely on and trust your future with: then your search is over. amazingly competent and excellent client service!

I came to Erik with a complicated legal problem, which I did not know could be dealt with in my favor. Erik reassured me that I had done nothing wrong and to leave to him to get it resolved. One month later and I was cleared, my problem was gone and I my nerves (already shot) were so immensely relieved. Erik was professional, knowledgeable and very confident. Very easy to talk to as well. I do not ever think I will need a lawyer again, but if I do I would not hesitate to go back to Erik.

I hired Erik’s office and all I can say is how impressed I am. He was always passionate and one step ahead of everyone. He always made me feel better about what was happening and got me through a very difficult time. Best decision I made.

Erik was able to get me even better results than I was hoping for! My DUI attorney, a friend of Erik’s, got me excellent results in my complicated DUI case, in which I was sentenced to 25 days of SWAP/Weekend Work Program. However, I was rejected from the Program due to medical injuries, and when I was to return to court to be sentenced to an alternative, he was out-of-town, and had Erik represent me in his stead. I was looking at the possibility of 12 days in jail because I could not complete SWAP, but Erik was able to convince the DA not to object to our request of doing community service instead, and then convinced the judge to accept the deal. Erik not only kept me out of jail, but was able to have my SWAP sentence reduced to comm. service, so I can work for a non-profit, giving back to the community for my transgression, while doing something I enjoy, instead of going to jail!

He was also very respectful and friendly during our court appearance and didn’t try to sugarcoat anything, ensuring I knew the worst possible outcome of our request (jail), so I had the facts before I chose to go through with it.

Erik is the man!
