"Dear John: I would like to thank you and your firm for the exceptional work on my case. A journey that began with uncertainty and fear has come to closure with appreciation and confidence. I will never forget the patience and transparency that you have practiced throughout the settlement process. The explaining of every detail and scenario beforehand, making yourself available through multiple communication channels for any questions that I have had. Professionalism at its highest pinnacle is what I have experienced at Mesirow & Stravitz. I highly send my recommendation to any person who wants the best representation from one of the most distinguished lawyers in the Washington DC, Metropolitan area. Again I want to say thank you John for being there throughout my legal process. Jamere Clark, Prince George County, Maryland"
"Simply the Best! I was referred to Eric Stravitz through another attorney, and from the very first time I spoke to him about my case, I knew I was in capable, trustworthy hands. Eric was meticulous in his handling of my case—from the written court documents and trial materials to the time and effort he took to prepare me for depositions and courtroom appearances. I felt he examined every possibility, kept me informed, and put me in the driver’s seat when it came to my case. Eric’s advance preparation, terrific organization, and clear thinking enabled him to solicit the best testimony from every witnesses—getting precisely what we needed to best position the evidence and build my case. He was able to think on his feet and took some calculated risks that allowed us to admit evidence that had been inadmissible in similar cases—a triumph for me and a sign of his great legal abilities. In addition to his incredible knowledge of the law and ease in the courtroom, Eric knows human nature very well which ended up being incredible ammunition for me! He demonstrated a phenomenal ability to “read” people and definitely used every persuasion to maneuver things in my favor. He’s incredibly bright, confident, and lives by the Golden Rule (i.e., treat people the way you want to be treated) which became my “triple threat.” I am certain it was his incredible knowledge of the law combined with an uncanny social ease and ability to take calculated risks that led to my terrific outcome. I cannot say enough about Eric as a person or as an attorney and recommend him unconditionally."

"Eric, I would like to thank you and your entire team for all your efforts in getting my case to settlement. It has been a long, stressful journey and...I could not have asked for better legal representation. You are not only extremely good at what you do, but you are also a very compassionate and nice person. I have the highest level of respect for your dedication to representing the victims in personal injury cases like mine."

"John, I just can't express to you how much I appreciate your handling my case and the excellent result you got for me. I really expected nothing and was beyond shocked when you called me. You were just so nice every time I called and took my call immediately. It does sort of make a good story but it took a really long, long time to get there. I wish I could say more but I really don't have the proper words to thank you."
Have a nice holiday season!
"Eric, Thank you so much for all of your work on my case. I am very pleased with the arbitration result and can't thank you enough. I plan on recommending you to everyone I know! Take care."

"I was in a car wreck in 1996 and went to John Mesirow. It is now 12 years later, and I have referred him at least 20 friends who were in accidents. All say the same thing; the best experience they have ever had with an attorney. John is so cool I feel he is the only white African-American I have ever known. He's also always there to try to help even outside of the call of duty."

Arnold Weiner, Esq., widely recognized as one of Maryland's premier business litigation attorneys, had this to say about Eric Stravitz after using him as local counsel in a Superior Court case: "Mr. Stravitz is the perfect local counsel. He has an intimate knowledge of local practices and procedures, is bright and resourceful, and makes himself available whenever needed."
"Eric Stravitz is a talented and tenacious advocate for his clients. I had the opportunity to work closely with Eric on a complex case arising from a sexual assault. He fought tooth and nail against a combative defense attorney with decades of experience and in the end achieved a great result for his client. In the process, he provided comprehensive and compassionate representation to the survivor of this brutal attack. He is exactly the kind of lawyer I would want to hire if I or a loved one ever needed help."
James Ferguson, Esq.
Former director of the National Crime Victim Bar Association
"Dear John, I wanted to tell you how polite and friendly you always were. The worker's compensation attorney I have never returns my phone calls and neither does his secretary. I have learned that I have to tell the receptionist that I want a live body on the other end of the line, not a machine. I am spoiled! John the loan man said some really nice things about you. But I was already sure in my heart you were a great attorney and person."
Take care, Mary, Washington, DC
