In the Media


As a professional with a background in retail securities, I had spoken to many firms before Eric's who didn’t seem to speak even the basic language related to such securities issues, yet Eric and his firm understood from our initial conversation. His willingness to listen, pay attention to the minute details of the matter and follow through by keeping in regular communication with me truly sets him apart from the many in his field. I would recommend Eric as it pertains to business/securities matters without hesitation.
