Attorney Eric Schutzbank has affirmed the following reviews are authentic.
"I changed to Attorney Schutzbank from a previous lawyer. Finally it seemed that somebody was on my side. Till now he has handled my case through the pre-trial conference. I am extremely satisfied by his grasp of all the issues and by the manner in which he is dealing with the opposing counsel. Will update more when the case is done. The case was settled recently. I wanted to add to my previous comments about Attorney Schutzbank. I am totally and completely satisfied with the agreement that he worked very hard to get me. He was able to get me all that I had required which my previous attorney thought was impossible. Through out the process he was on top of the matters and seemed fully involved and invested in my case. He has great negotiating skills which made this agreement possible. He uses his time efficiently to minimize client expenses. I plan to retain him for my future requirements. I would definitely recommend Attorney Schutzbank to anyone."
"I had a great experience with attorney Schutzbank. I was referred to him through another attorney who did not practice in New Hampshire. I knew that after my first visit that he was the right attorney for the job."
"Eric, has taken me through two divorce modifications with negotiating partners that were, to put it charitably, highly aggressive, lacking in full disclosure and not always reasonable. Throughout it all, Eric kept his eye on the ball and his calming influence with our opposites was instrumental in securing outcomes that were very closely aligened with our original objectives. I would readily recommend Eric."
"My Attorney Handled College Education Case for me in a dispute with my Ex-Husband. The only thing that I would have liked to have seen done differently would have been for me to see the finacial statement from the other party before making my final decision on how much money I was to receive weekly from the ex toward education costs. Because I believe that I would have been able to get more out of him, after seeing the finacial statement. Also, I didn't like the fact the courts in Ma. cannot make the Ex pay interest on Education loans, that really hurt me finacially. I thought that could have been somehow argued better!"
