"I am the founder and CEO of a Houston commercial real estate management company. We have engaged Fryar Law Firm in dozens of matters over the last decade, from disputes with our shareholders and investors to ordinary business litigation. Eric Fryar is a superb trial lawyer and has achieved numerous court room victories for us. He is also a shrewd and loyal advocate and advisor."
“Great job Eric and team. This was a real victory!”
”You did a fabulous job this week. . . . I want to affirm one more time, that I really believe in you and you have gotten us excellent results. You are outstanding!”
"Best experience possible considering how miserable it is getting sued. All staff members are knowledgeable and professional. My attorneys were able to quickly and efficiently strategize responses to legal matters that impacted my case, including an opinion by the Supreme Court that significantly impacted my case.”
Ilse Rew, Minority Shareholder
"I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your hard work, support and of course the settlement in the matter of Tevis vs. D’Ercole. Finding you was the best thing that could have happened in my case. As you know, I was at the final stage of trying to get anything back from my former partner. You immediately gained my trust and confidence. I knew that you really cared about my case and it was a privilege to have been a client of the Fryar Law Firm. Eric - you left no stone unturned, always letting me know what your thoughts on the case were. You never misinformed me on what the outcome could be. I admire your integrity and your legal expertise. You put a lot of time and effort in this case and I wish you both the very best. I would refer anyone with business disputes to your firm without hesitation and with this quote. 'You may only need the Fryar Law Firm once in your lifetime, but be assured you have chosen the best of the best for your business litigation issues.'"
Mike Tevis, Minority Shareholder
“My business partners had just teamed up to make a slight majority. They forced me out of my business without cause, pressured me to sell my shares for pennies on the dollar…and finally refused to distribute the cash needed to pay my share of a huge tax bill. You adeptly handled each stage of the case, including extensive discovery, movement of the case to federal court, depositions, determination of applicable law in New York, Texas and Delaware, and finally mediation. During those difficult 18 months, you really helped me stay attuned to my contractual rights, and my rights as a minority shareholder in a closely held business. Your vigorous application of the law helped my former partners finally realize that a reasonable settlement was in everyone’s best interest."
Tim Peters, Minority Shareholder
“Thanks for all your help on my Amtex case. I feel it was a great success. You did an outstanding and professional job and I feel the other side did not even have a chance. In fact, they were not able to make any real defense on any point.”
Brad Johnson, Minority Shareholder

However, with Fryar Law Firm on your side, you can rest assured that everything is being handled with the highest degree of professionalism and unparalleled expertise. They are truly the experts and will ensure that your matter achieves the best results possible. The other side has little chance against the legal authorities that are the Fryar Law Firm.”
Carly Filgueira, Minority Shareholder
“This was a most unusual legal process for all, and there is no doubt that without the expertise of the Fryar office in the field of shareholder representation and rights, the CMKM Shareholders would have never been granted access to these parties. Mr. Fryar and the whole office went out of their way to superbly represent, answer questions, inform and meet the needs of the CMKM Shareholders."
Jerry Kozic, Minority Shareholder
“I cannot express how diligent and knowledgeable Eric and Christina were in representing my best interests. Christina did an outstanding job in getting the best settlement for me. The character and integrity in which she handled my case was second to none.”
Julie Parsley, Small Business Owner
“I had a commission dispute with one of the leading companies in the United States (or in the world). I was really quite concerned ... as this company seems so strong. I was unable to make much progress until I luckily got Mr. Eric Fryar as my legal representative. Mr. Fryar has proved his deep knowledge and professionalism in law. His unusual discovery of the “hidden” evidences makes my claim much bigger than expected, which positions me in a stronger position when mediating with the counterpart. Thus, this dispute could be solved very quickly by mediation in and avoided the time-consuming litigation process while a satisfactory recovery was achieved. If anybody is in trouble and looking for a lawyer, I believe Mr. Eric Fryar is the right senior legal counsel you can rely on. Again, I’d like to wish Mr. Fryar continuous success in his legal practice!”
Wang Yunping, Independent Business Owner, Beijing, China
“It was a rough fight. You tackled and put on hold (until Justice was served) the largest mining merger in Canadian history.... Eric -- you faced the fire of adversity and prevailed due to your unique understanding of the law and refusal to be intimidated. Through all the ups and downs, Anna and I remained confident in our cause as the defendants were unable to lay a glove on the facts of your case and how brilliantly you articulated it. This forced the defendants to resort to disruptive tactics and hand-to-hand combat; all the while you kept your cool and integrity. In the end, they were no match for your legal expertise.”
John Swanson, Exdiam Corporation, Minority Shareholder
“You did a superb job in the courtroom. I can honestly say that your preparation and delivery in the courtroom far surpassed any attorney with which I have had dealings with. ... Should I ever need of an attorney in Houston, I would choose you again, and will recommend you to anyone else that may ask for my advice.”
J.N. Turpin Environmental Analytics, Inc., Minority Shareholder
”If it were not for your unique intelligence (one-of-a-kind), the Swanson case would never have reached the Courtroom. . . . On a personal level, Anna, George and I respect so much your integrity and decency as an individual and a lawyer.”
John D. Swanson, President, International Resource Ventures, Inc.
“The quality that you have exhibited in your legal representation thought-provoking energy, research and clear mindedness..."
Jim Williams, TransAndean Partners, Inc.
”I believe that the positive outcome was entirely a result of your dedication to our case. The integrity and knowledge of the law that you and your amazing team demonstrated during the preparation phase and during the case is to be commended above all.”
Herbert Miles, Tubular Services LP
“I was most impressed by the way you prosecuted our case. ... You knew how to appeal to the jury and their concerns. ... The most important thing, of course, is that you won.”
J. Frank Fernandes , Teacher Retirement System of Texas

Raymond Brochstein, President, Brochsteins, Inc.
“Eric prepared an incredibly detailed complaint which to me was a legal masterpiece.”
Russel Gibaut, former Duke Energy Shareholder
“I think for the specialty you have you are very thorough and make the client feel like you really do care about his pain and you want to make the opponent pay for the wrong he has done. As a client, I could not be happier with the case so far, and I am convinced I could not have a more zealous advocate.”
Robert Eisele, Minority Shareholder

Brian Zimmerman, Zimmerman, Axelrad Houston, Texas
"I have known Eric Fryar for over 25 years and worked with him for years as law partners at Susman Godfrey. He is a brilliant lawyer who puts a lot of careful thought into crafting the legal strategy and tactics best suited to winning in litigation. I would not hesitate to hire him in any litigation matter, especially a matter relating to shareholder oppression or other corporate issues."
Max Tribble, Susman Godfrey, Houston, Texas
"I am a bankruptcy attorney and was fortunate to have Eric conduct a complex trial in the Federal Bankruptcy Court for a mutual client that put his vast knowledge of business governance and litigation skills on display. I have practiced in the bankruptcy court for over 35 years and I can’t say that I have ever seen such a well prepared and competent advocate. Apparently the bankruptcy judge agreed, providing relief to our client and confirming Eric’s argument that our adversary lacked business authority under Texas law. See [In re CorrLine Int'l, LLC, 516 B.R. 106, 138 (Bankr. S.D. Tex. 2014)]."
Peter Johnson, Law Office of Peter Johnson Houston, Texas
"Eric Fryar is a brilliant and creative lawyer, who refuses to take "no" for his clients. When appropriate, Eric can be as stubborn as a Mississippi mule, or as accommodating as a kitten, all to benefit his client."
Bill Emmons, Emmons Legal
