Success Stories

When Kathy came to us, her home was infested with toxic mold. The mold was covering the walls throughout the apartment. Her son has asthma, a disease exasperated by elevated levels of household mold . We helped Kathy’s family move to a healthier home. About the experience, Kathy says

"Mold was everywhere [in our home]. You could smell it all over my clothes and in my hair. We had to throw everything away."

"Eric took care of everything for us; he did more than he needed to do. Now we have a nice house—with no mold. I'm very lucky to have him as an attorney."
