My husband and I went to Mr. Erickson to do Wills and Powers of Attorney. When I first went to his office to inquire about doing these documents, I was very nervous and apprehensive. I am from Spain and I was concerned about the American custom of doing Wills and Powers of Attorney. His assistant Betsy made me feel at ease and answered my initial questions.
When my husband and I went to see Mr. Erickson, I was scared. In my culture, we do not talk about death. I should not have been scared. He made the experience enjoyable and was more than willing to answer my questions. I told him he looks like Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy. Mr. Erickson was polite, easy going and helped me to relax. I would highly recommend him. I have told my friends about him.

I was involved in extended probate litigation. Mr. Erickson represented me and did a thorough job taking me through the case, explaining the options, and his bills were fair. I was thoroughly impressed with his attention to detail and the way he presented the case. I would recommend him to anyone.
Clear, sound & honest legal advice
When I needed legal counsel, I retained Chuck Erickson and was treated very well. He and his assistant put everything into my custody case, I won custody of my daughter, and I could not have been more satisfied with the outcome. I will always be grateful.
I have used Mr. Erickson for both business and personal legal representation and advice. He consistently presents all options along with the positive/negative aspects of each, recommendations and rationale. His advice is well communicated and he always verifies my understanding of the options. In all cases, he has been clear that I am the client and the final decision is mine. Mr. Erickson has represented me on multiple foreclosure cases and they were all timely, well argued and communicated. I never had to worry if they were moving forward as he provided consistent communicated of progress, strategies and rationale. For my personal legal needs, the clarity he provided for my Will and estate planning was equally as excellent with all options and recommendations, and the rationale for the recommendations, clearly communicated. I do not hesitate to recommend Mr. Erickson to anyone do to his sound, well-thought-out advice, clear explanations and integrity.
I would most definitely recommend Chuck Erickson for any attorney needs. He is hard working and goes above and beyond for his clients. He isn’t afraid to fight hard, even if it’s over something thrown in at the last minute. He makes sure that his clients are always happy. He and his assistant Betsy are always easy to get a hold of and will make sure things are done in a quick time frame. He always gives the best advice and has his client’s best interest in mind at all times. He is great to work with and makes my job much smoother. I always feel extremely well protected with him on my side. Thanks for all your hard work!!

I have been a Realtor for 19 years and have worked for the office of Greg Zavitz for 16 of those years.Not limiting to, I have my own client base of buyers and sellers, doing all the paperwork for Greg’s client listings and sales. In this process, it is important to work with known bankers, trusted loan officers, and yes, attorneys. Since our team typically moves and average of 65 – 70 homes a year those trusted alliances become ever so more important.Chuck Erickson is one of those trusted alliances who returns phone calls and reply’s to Emails in a timely fashion. I am always kept informed as to the progress of whatever issues are involved. There is no guess work which makes working with Chuck and his assistant, Betsy, a true pleasure. In today’s age of digital answering machines and pressing unlimited numbers to reach your party, having direct access and personal attention offered by Chuck Erickson’s office sets the standards others would do good to follow. I would highly recommend Chuck Erickson as an attorney to be used in his field of expertise.

My wife and I wanted to find an attorney to update our wills. Having no recent experience with attorneys, we looked at numerous websites and made a few phone calls. Chuck returned our calls promptly and quoted us prices and scope of work which were very reasonable.
He was able to meet with us in a matter of days and did an excellent job of recommending and explaining options in an hour meeting. After that, he prepared the documents and scheduled a meeting to review and sign them, again in a matter of days.
We appreciated Chuck’s willingness and patience in explaining legal terms to laymen like ourselves, and also that his office is conveniently located with parking right at the front door. We certainly would recommend Chuck to others who would like prompt attention.

My husband and I knew very little about wills and durable powers of attorneys, didn’t have one and wanted to get something in place before bringing our daughter home from China. Mr. Erickson really took the time to explain the language of our wills and durable powers of attorneys. We especially appreciated his efforts to do what made sense for us, both financially and legally. He didn’t throw in a bunch of stuff we didn’t need at this point in our lives but explained when we would want to see him again.

Chuck Erickson has been the corporate attorney for Heartland Home Medical Supply, Inc. since 2004. He was instrumental in guiding us through the business start-up process. His honesty, integrity, knowledge, and professionalism has not wavered in the 11 years that I have known him.
I appreciate his direct approach to issues and concerns. He is easily accessible, responds quickly, listens attentively, and is straightforward regarding the financial impact of any legal action. Chuck has continually given me sound, well-researched advice. He discusses all legal issues in simple but comprehensive terms; and always makes sure that you understand what he is advising and why, and that you are satisfied with his answer.
My experience with Chuck is that he is a caring, thoughtful attorney that is passionate and relentless in his pursuit of achieving his client’s goals. He is approachable, has a friendly personality, sense of humor, and is down-to-earth. When I have seen Chuck in public, he always recognizes me, stops to talk, and asks how things are going.
Betsy is a true asset to Charles N. Erickson law firm. She is always welcoming, pleasant, caring, and eager to help. Her principles and work ethic align with Chuck’s, which is what makes them a great team.
Because of my experience with Charles N. Erickson law firm, I would strongly recommend him to individuals and corporations alike without hesitation.

The Charles N. Erickson Law Office did an excellent job of representing me in my FSBO (For Sale By Owner) transaction. I was unsure of who I should utilize and what services someone could provide for me, but after a quick meeting they made the process seem very hassle free. The team of Chuck and Betsy was great to work with as they had great communication and took all the initiatives in working with all appropriate parties to ensure a smooth transaction at a reasonable price.
Chuck and his staff have been an invaluable asset for my business and me personally. My first legal experience was my first time buying a home. Chuck was patient with a new home owner with lots of questions. Later, I wanted to buy a condominium for a rental property. Chuck advised and set up an LLC to hold title to the property providing me protection for my personal assets. He was also able to prepare a lease and guaranty that were very detailed that provided me protection as a landlord. Chuck is patient and will answer any question he can to help you make legal decisions. He is quick to respond and works late to make sure he is able to get back to you. I did and will continue to use him for legal counsel for my business and personal affairs. I highly recommend him.
