“We understand the impact a legal issue can have on your way of life.”

~Felix Anthony “Grem” DeJean III

A Word From Erik

During my time practicing law, clients have come to me with a variety of problems—from criminal issues, personal injuries or the tragic wrongful death of a loved one, to family conflicts and contractor disputes. Each client’s situation has caused heartache, pain and financial turmoil. Often, they have nowhere else to turn for help. Most don’t know what’s coming at them next, and they find great relief in working with someone who does. That’s what I love most about my job: helping people. I’m always ready to stand up and fight aggressively. I resolve life-changing situations by focusing on what is best for each client’s circumstances and I work tirelessly to achieve it.

In my past, I’ve sat on the client side feeling vulnerable and relying on the services of an attorney. I know how frustrating it is to meet with a lawyer who claims he or she can get the job done, only to end up being treated like a number. To me, cases really, truly matter. They keep me up at night until I find a positive resolution for my clients. When you partner with DeJean & Noland Law Office LLC, you will get one hundred percent of our effort and skills.

I’m proud to be a lawyer who cares and who isn’t afraid to take on the other side, no matter if it’s a big insurance company or an intimidating prosecutor. I work with an unwavering obligation to resolve your issues and return your life to normal. When you need an attorney – or if you just need someone who will listen — please call me and let me put my experience to work for you.
