So I called Erick Platten December of 2018 when I found myself facing a misdemeanor charge on top of violating felony probation. Erick Platten been there for me and my family the entire time by phone he also got me a bond while on a probation violation which most people including my po say is almost impossible. He also has fought both of my cases to get me the absolutely best outcome for me and my family. He is willing to go above and beyond and is amazing in the court room. It's been a year ordeal but its finally coming to an end soon and I have Erick Platten and Sam to thank for their patience and how hard they been working to keep me with my family where I belong. Highly recommend Platten Law for all you legal needs.

After reading the reviews of several attorneys I chose Erick Platten & will forever be thankful for his understanding character & the person he is. My husband had been offered 12 years by the DA & Erick was very confident in beating the case from day 1 & he did exactly that. Forever thankful

I was hit while parked and it was a nightmare. Platten law firm was my first call, Eric and his staff have guided me through physical therapy and have completely taken care of my case. With out platten law firm I would be lost, much thanks to Eric and his staff for diligently working to resolve this in a timely manner.

Erick Platten has gone above and beyond. He got me exactly what I was wanting from the court. He got the time down for my probation to 3 years instead of 5. What amazes me the most is that since my case had ended I have had some problems or situations I needed his help with and he was ALWAYS just a phone call away. Most lawyers would just take your money and go after the case was over, but Erick no. He even checks in with me to see how I’m doing with everything. He is very personable and caring. Thank you very much for your work. I’m now realizing how hard it would have been if I just took my felony like I wanted from the beginning. Thank you for talking me out of it.

After my father received a DWI in Smith County, he was scared and unsure of next steps. Finding Erick Platten proved to be the best decision we could have made to help guide us through this unexpected situation. His level of promptness and ease of accessibility are unparalleled. Mr. Platten truly went above and beyond for my father by even providing additional resources of support for him as well as all the time and communication he spent with our family. As a result of our positive experience with Erick, I highly recommend him...you will not find a better attorney!

I found myself in a serious situation in Wood county Texas.
After many hours of research I retained Erick Platten.
I was charged with a felony DWI.
I met with Mr.Platten and he took my case.
Long story short, He and his staff were more than I could have hoped for. My case was dismissed !!!
I highly recommend Mr. Platten and his staff.
If you find yourself needing the best attorney in East Texas or anywhere in Texas for that matter this is definitely the ONE !

I contacted Mr. Platten earlier last year about a pretty serious case for me. Mr. Platten exceeded my expectations and got my charges reduced to a misdemeanor so I can live life without being a felon.

Circumstances existed to secure the services of Erick Platten. Erick is extremely knowledgeable and most important a caring professional personally invested in the lives of his clients! Despite challenging cases he keeps a big picture perspective and manages all with his clients best interest in mind. His ability to lessen the severity of case outcomes is proven. Erick immediatly responds regardless of time of day, night weekends and holidays. Over a two year period Erick provided quality service and excellence. When most needed he was calming and reassuring. Beyond the case Erick remains available and true to his commitment providing counsel if needed. Without hesitation I would recommend Erick Platten and his service expertise to anyone in need. Grateful!

Erick Platten helped my son with legal entanglements five years ago. Because of Erick’s help and a changed attitude following the events, my son has graduated college, married, had a daughter, and is proceeding on a career path in business that can lead to real success. I am tremendously grateful to Mr. Platten for his wisdom and skill through these events. I recommend him highly.

We hired Erick to defend my husband on an aggravated assault on a public servant charge. We were clueless on what to do and where to start! Erick held our hand every step of the way and always assured us with honesty on what to expect next. He was always very quick with responding to our questions and he was always available, even on weekends and holidays! In the end he got my husband’s case completely dismissed! It was a huge relief!! We highly recommend him!!

Erick took my call @ 4:30 a.m. Saturday and assisted us through the entire process. He made himself available for the rest of the weekend and helped us resolve the issue by the following Tuesday. Greatly appreciate his counsel through this process and helping us button it up before it became a bigger issue.

Mr Platten was very compassionate about my case. He spoke to me so i could understand 'lawyer talk' and communication was great! He returned calls in a timely fashion and took the time to talk to me. My experience with him was great and the results even better. Def the man you want fighting on your side!

I went to Mr. Platten for his criminal defense services for a terrible misunderstanding that had lead me to be charged with assault at 22 years old. I was going to school and working full time and I never had been in "trouble" like this before, so I was stressing over finding an attorney that not only I could trust to take on my case, but to help protect my future. I don't think I could have found a better person to fit the job! I instantly knew I was in good hands just with the convenience they offered me with even the simple things like overall scheduling and payments. It was beyond relieving to know that someone else was taking my case as seriously as I was! I wouldn't have taken anything less than the justice of my case being dismissed and Mr. Platten would not either by doing everything in his power to fight until the very end! My case was dismissed and couldn't be more greatful for the overall experience! I highly recommend his services and I wouldn't think twice about working with him again if I ever find myself needing legal assistance again in the future.

I was charged with driving while intoxicated after being taken to the hospital a little over a year ago. I was in a car accident which totaled my truck however no one was injured. Blood was drawn in the ER and I was given a DIC-24. I contacted Mr. Platten and he was very helpful. He fought my case for almost a year in order to get a favorable outcome. My BAC was very high and could have resulted in a year of jail time. I'll serve no time in jail thanks to the work he's done. Erick Platten is an expert when it comes to blood alcohol concentration and methods used to determine BAC. He was always willing to answer questions that I had regarding the case which helped put my mind at ease.

VERY grateful to Mr. Platten for all of his hard work on a very tough case. He helped a family member avoid a harsh prison sentencing. He truly cares and proved so by following up with us even after this case was done to offered additional helpful resources. Professional, hard working, communicative, and he cares!!

I hired Mr. Platten after I was arrested while on deferred adjudicated probation. I was terrified of the possible outcomes! Mr. Platten made me feel confident that he would do what needed to be done to assure my place with my family and not in a Texas jail.
After I was arrested Mr. Platten worked diligently with the Van Zandt and Smith county courts to make my 50,000 dollar bond change to a PR bond to assure my quick release when it seemed impossible to be released at all. I was overwhelmed and truly astonished by how fast Mr. Platten was able to get in touch with the judge and DA to have the appropriate papers signed for my PR bond release!
Within a few weeks following my arrest he again did the impossible. My probation was reinstated with out modifications for further punishment even though I had violated felony deferred adjudicated probation!
Mr. Platten is a brilliant attorney! I honestly could not have survived the terrifying court process without him. I would recommend him for absolutely any case or person. Mr. Platten is a true genius in the courts. My case could have turned out so much worse and Mr. Platten managed to grant the best possible outcome anyone could have ever imagined! A true life saver!

We hired Erik Platten to represent my husband when there was a motion to revoke his probation. We were worried he might be sent to prison for years, but Erik had everything worked out wonderfully in just over a week. He was very kind and understanding, and took the time to explain everything that was going on. Any time I had questions, he was very quick to get back to me. He really helped to put out minds at ease. I would definitely hire him again, and I certainly recommend him.

I’ve had to deal with lawyers in the past. Eric was by far the best. I had a felony dwi and Eric got us what we asked for from the court. He answered or returned all me and my family’s calls and txts. He was compassionate and caring and a genuinely good man. He worked hard for us and made us feel like we were the only case he had. This man also called me after everything was done to see how I was doing on his personal time ( I could hear his kids playing in the background) to see how I was and if there’s anything else he could help with. He genuinely cared about what I planned on doing after and what my plans were. He told me to contact him any time with any questions or needs I might have. He is our lawyer for life for any issues me or my family might need. We thank God that he pointed us in his direction.
Highly recommend.

Erick worked for my us even when he was on vacation, getting motions filed etc. He answers to all concerns in a very timely manner with his cellular contact. Erick wasn't in town and had to get a sub for us on an unexpected court date, the sub he chose was just as great as Erick. Erick got the best possible outcome that could have possibly came out of the case. We've hired other lawyers in the past and most do not work this hard. Money well spent.

Erick is awesome! He's very attentive, he's always for you and he loves his veterans community! I was going through a very, very difficult time. Going through a difficult divorce, fighting a complicated case dealing with the VA hospital and a criminal case on top of that and Erick seen me through and had it dismissed. If you're a veteran and are going through some legal troubles, Erick will help you!

If you are looking for a highly experienced, very aggressive attorney who does not take bulls*** from anybody, then Mr.Platten is the best attorney you can hire. Mr. Platten fought to get me my life back on a 10-year deferred probation. Because of medical reasons I was not able to take a polygraph and while Mr Platten was working on my behalf, Probation decided to go ahead and revoke me and put me in jail. I was in jail less than 8 hours and being on a weekend Mr. Platten had to call Judge and the Da on a Friday night and got me released. Mr.Platten then aggressively subpoena medical records, probation office and hospitals to come up with a book of medical evidence that the prosecution accepted and I was fully released from probation and all terms. Because of the extensive work Mr. Platten and Samantha did on my behalf I have my life back. Mr. Platten was quick to reply anytime I needed help or had questions at all hours of the day. Even though my case was dealing with a sensitive issue of the polygraph, Mr.Platten stopped at nothing when probation was trying to put me in prison for 10 yrs , he got won myfreedom and life back and even after case was done is helping to get my job back from my job's legal team.
Mr.Platten is hands down the best lawyer in East Texas and highly recommend you talk to him first.

Hired, Mr. Platten for an Engaging in Organized Criminal Activity charge in 2017 a 1st degree 3G accusation from the Criminal Investigation Division Texas Department of Public Safety. We refused to self incriminate or falsely corroborate with Mr. Burkett.

2 years on a GPS anklet and pretrial probation the prosecution offered 3 years deffered probation and reduced the accusation to a State Jail money laundering charge. With out Eric I wouldn't have negotiated for a 2 year deffered probation agreement.

I was jailed for missing a probation meeting and he came visit me during booking and got me out in 3 weeks.

He comes recommended.

I had a felony charge and two misdemeanors. I was facing 8 years state prison. Erick was able to help me get 2 years deferred probation for the felony and one of the misdemeanor charges dismissed. It was a 18 month ordeal getting my case resolved so I got to know Erick pretty well. Platten was there to help me. I feel like he had the best interest of my family and myself in mind and at the center of every legal decision he made. Anytime I didn’t understand something or needed to get ahold of him, he responded within minutes. Very good at communicating in a timely manner no matter what’s going on.
Overall I’m very satisfied with him as my attorney and I would definitely hire again in the future if need be.

Erick Platten recently helped me sort out an extortion conspiracy issue. I had a group of people call me in an elaborate plot to extort me. They went so far as to actually claim to be calling from local sheriff’s office and impersonated an officer to inform me of charges I was facing. They lied and told me I could face up to 25 years in prison. The “detective” informed me the “victim” would like to reach out to me to try to resolve it without escalating it. When the “victim” called me they hinted that to help resolve their issue and not file charges I could help pay for damages through various payment methods. I called Erick Platten and he quickly informed me this was a pretty common scam. I went over the details of what I had been informed about. He covered my legal exposure in this matter over the phone at a very odd hour. He helped put my mind at ease, as I was very worried that I could legitimately be in legal trouble if I didn’t succumb to the “victims” demands. He even went as far as to uncover that the “detective” was not in fact even an officer or working for my county. I can’t thank Erick enough for the work and advise he gave me to keep me from being extorted.

There is no other attorney in Tyler that works harder for his clients than Erick Platten and he is never more than just a call away. I will only do business with him.

I can finally rest easy! I probably like most generally do not trust attorneys. Erick Platten is one attorney that you can trust. Mr. Platten made me feel as if I was his only client throughout my whole ordeal. Mr. Platten works every angle of your case to get the best outcome for you. I have read reviews stating that he is a "Bull Dog", I am here to tell you its true! Thank you Erick Platten and Samantha for all of your hard work!

Im 19 years old, but was 18 years old when i almost ruined my life with possesion of a controlled substance "thc oil", along with tampering of evidence, which are two felonies. This man Eric Platten saved my life, without him i'd of lost my hopes and dreams of going to college and being a student athlete. With that being said, if your going to have anyone fight for your case he is without a doubt the best man, from his effort, to actually understanding your a human being with a life and not just clientel.

Great experience!! Left In the dark by court appointed attorney. I didn’t know what was going on and I was honestly scared by the possibility of what could happen and not knowing anything. I hired Mr Platten (which was the best decision I could have made) about 10 days before I was set to go to jury trial. He explained everything to me. He also found out about a couple of cases that were gonna be sprung on me that would have put me away for quite a while. I was looking at a total of 3 State Jail Felonies and a 3rd Degree Felony. I was more than pleased to sign for 4 years probation with no jail time. The judge also wanted to send me to SAFP, but thanks to Mr Platten’s decision to put me on the stand and question me I am able to sit at home and write this instead of sitting in county waiting to catch chain to SAFP. Thank you so much for caring and fighting so hard. I highly recommend Mr Platten to anyone requiring expert legal services. If you want the best look no further. I can’t say thanks enough!!

Erick Platten is a superb attorney. He isn't afraid to look outside the box and walk outside the line in order to get results. He does all of this because he cares about helping his clients. Erick will help shoulder your legal burden, simplify things, and find the best possible outcomes. If you do not hear from him on your case, be patient, timing is important. Know that he works a lot and once your case does reach him in time, he will give it absolute focus.

I was blindsided by two felony counts and was in scared. I was in fear of going to jail for a long time, losing everything I worked for, and for losing my liberties. Erick worked through my case with care and found holes in the investigation and holes in the official story. He did not let those holes slide and continue to punish me. He ended up getting me the results we were looking for. I couldn't be happier. Please give him a call if you are in trouble, he's there to help.

With my prior convictions I was told by two other very recognized attorneys that getting probation was “impossible”. I figured I’d try one more attorney and man I found THE BEST! I received 15 months probation with a chance to get off early. WOW! I was able to contact him any time, day or night. He always got back to me even when my questions were stupid. Great attorney and a great guy. Obviously very respected in his profession by his peers. I’ve used other attorneys in the past, no comparison. Stop reading reviews and call Erick Platten!

Smith County was trying to revoke my probation for not reporting, Mr. Platten got me a quick quick court date, reviewed my case on his vacation, got me a bond, and on the day of court he brought all the big guns and evidence for my case. As soon as the DA realized they had messed up keeping my records they dropped it. Even the judge said “ quick as always Mr. Platten.” So if you want someone who is going to actually fight for you, HIRE HIM!!

We hired Erick for my (then) 23 year old son, who had been arrested for DWI in Smith county in December 2017. Erick was extremely helpful during the entire process and our son received probation for a year with often urine tests to look for alcohol use. As my son was going thru his probation - he continued having problems with alcohol use, however, he was very intent on kicking his perceived alcoholism. He went to three different rehab facilities and on the final one was finally diagnosed accurately with bipolar disorder. He was erroneously using alcohol to “treat” his mental issues. After testing “dirty” on his second urinalysis within a 13 month period - our son was sentenced to serve 7 days in county jail while his hearing was being scheduled. Again, we contacted Erick’s office, and he went to work immediately and dilegently to convince the court that it was our son’s mental illness that contributed so much to his drinking issue. He also was able to convince the courts that probation and incarceration were more detrimental to our son’s mental health and should be avoided. At my son’s hearing, the courts agreed and my son was released and probation was ended. We owe so much to Erick for his assistance!

We hired Mr Platten to defend my husband in a intoxication manslaughter case. He was facing up to 20 years in prison! This case was a very emotional case considering the victim was his best friend. Mr platten assured us from the very beginning he would do everything in his power to keep him out of jail! And he did! After almost 2 years of going back and forth to court and the district attorney not offering anything but 10 years prison ( even though the victims family asked for the case to be dropped and did not want to go to court) we went to trial entering a slow plea. Out of the 10 jureyers 8 wanted my husband to walk out with NO punishment! Mr platten was there for us every step of the way. After 3 days of trial the jury gave my husband 10 years PROBATION! First intoxication manslaughter case in Smith County to ever get PROBATION! If you need help or is facing jail time please call Mr platten! I promise he won't let you down! Thanks so much Erick for being there for our family! We will be forever thankful!!

October 2016, I was pulled over in Tyler Texas on suspicion of a DWI. Having never been arrested before, I didn’t handle the situation very well. When taken to jail, the officer told me I would lose my driver’s license for 90 days if I signed permission to take a blood /breathalyzer test, and 180 days if I didn’t sign. Feeling this was blackmail, I refused to sign. After I placed bail, I found excellent reviews concerning Erick Platten. I hired him. That was the best decision I ever made. Through his skill, I did NOT lose my license for 1 day. It took 10 months to finally go to court and during that time Erick treated me more as a friend than a client. I found him to be very thorough. This meant so much to my wife and myself. He not only saved me from having a DWI, he carried me when I thought there wasn’t any hope. I will be forever grateful to Erick. Erick is far more than just a great attorney. He is a GREAT MAN.

I was really worried about my freedom and found Eric Platten and his reviews, the minute I called him he welcomed me and calmed my worries , I just knew my freedom was gonna be taken away for a long time , Eric immediately went to work on my case and six months later it was dismissed, I would recommend Eric Platten if you've ever get into trouble with the law, he will treat you like family and truly fight for you, Eric has given my life back to me and my family.

I am extremely satisfied with his work. Mr. Platten was very thorough with my brother's parole hearing. His knowledge and expertise was instrumental in getting a favorable outcome.

I was facing charges I never thought possible. I was scared about my future and what was in store - Mr. Platten assured me he would take care of me. After a few months in and out of the courtroom, all charges were dropped and the case was dismissed. I'm very grateful for his services and highly recommend him and his staff.

My husband was arrested for wrongful theft charges while he was on probation. Mr platten and his assistant Samantha kept me informed throughout the entire process! And through Mr. platten's amazing attorney abilities justice was served and all charges were dropped! I want to sincerely thank Mr. Platten and his team for everything they have done for my family! I would never have gotten through this without them!

Erick has gone above and beyond to get his work done. He was able to dismiss my DUI case. I highly recommend Erick Platten to represent you. He will make sure he does everything that he can to help you out.

If you are reading this review, then it is assumed that you are in a similar situation as I was for the last couple of months. I have always lived my life in line with the law. I never dreamed I would ever be in a position to ever need the assistance of a criminal lawyer. Therefore, I was not prepared for what had happened to me...

Unfortunately I was completely blind sided by a Felony Assault Charge by the State in Cass County TX. Being that children were within the area, CPS was also involved in my case as well. I quickly needed a criminal attorney to fight this charge, and had no idea as to where to begin. Like you, I began researching lawyers in the area and reading reviews. After researching many local attorneys, I came across Erick Platten's reviews, and I was blown away. This was definitely the person I wanted on my side to fight for me.

I immediately contacted Mr. Platten. He was very understanding of my situation, and obviously very knowledgeable. When Mr. Platten told me the fee that would initially be charged, I'm not going to lie... I was very overwhelmed. It was a very large sum of money, and as I stated earlier, I was not very prepared for it at all. I knew I'd be fighting for my life throughout all of this, and did everything I possibly could to come up with the fee... and let me tell you, Mr. Platten is worth every penny!

He immediately started on my case. He communicated with me regardless of the day/time in order to give me some sense of stability/comfort throughout the process. Mr. Platten showed a sincere concern for my situation and although he made no promises as to the end result, he absolutely committed to doing everything he possibly could in order to resolve my case as quickly as possible.

Several months later my case was finally dismissed by the DA, and I was finally able to get my life back. I never would have made it through all of this without the help of Mr. Platten. I could not have selected a better attorney. I pray I will never again find myself in need of a criminal attorney... But if I do, or anybody I know does... Erick Platten will be the only choice!

Thank you Mr. Platten! I truly appreciate all you have done to help me get this resolved...

I was facing 15 to life on one of the biggest drug cases to hit the Tyler area in years. Felony possession of marijuana, Felony possession of tetrahydrocannabinol, Engaging in Organized Criminal Activity, and unlawfully carry of a weapon. I thought my life was over until I contacted Mr. Platten. From the beginning he assured me he would take care of everything and give me a chance to continue my life outside of prison. After 10 months of battling a case that the media blew out of the water due to the well known local DJ involved, he finally convinced the prosecutor and judge to give me a more than fair deal. I was always able to contact Mr. Platten and his assistant throughout the whole deal. They were both very knowledgeable and prompt with every aspect of my cases. His fee to represent me was more than reasonable and I believe he was worth every dime spent. He got 2 of my charges dismissed without me having to testify or "snitch" on anybody involved in my case. This is something I was very persistent in not having to do and not once was I ever asked or pressured to do so. I ended up getting 5 years deferred adjudicated probation with no fine, no community service, and eligible to have early release after 24 months. My family and I greatly respect and admire Mr. Platten for everything he did for me during this hard time in my life. I highly recommend Erick for any trouble you may be in. Although outcomes are not always predictable, I truly believe Platten Law is the best law firm in the state of Texas. Don't hesitate to call him when your life is on the line. He saved mine and he can save yours as well. Thank you Erick for everything you did and making it possible for me to continue my journey through this thing we call life!

Excellent job defending my second dwi. Two years probation was the minimum allowed in smith county and that's what he got me.
Judge wanted to give me one year tdc time for breathalyzer test problems but I kept my freedoms with a scram bracelet. I highly recommend Eric.

I highly recommend Erick Platten! He did so much for me! I was indicted for felony forgery of a financial instrument in Smith county. When we went to court he convinced the judge to granted me deferred adjudication. On top of that he dedicated a lot of time and hard work to convince the judge to transfer my probation to Kansas successfully. He is a great attorney. He is the one to hire as your attorney. Erick also helped me get tickets dismissed in another county for a totally different case!

If criminal charges were filed against you in Smith County and you are not guilty, my deepest sympathy goes to you and your family. Just imagine the " Justice System" in all its beauty coming at you as a train. If you don't get a powerful defense in timely manner on your side, your life could be destroyed.
After extensive search for a good lawyer, based on the reviews I decided to hire Erick Platten.
It's difficult to compare two different lawyers because it's impossible to apply them both in same criminal case and see the result. But, I can share what Mr. Platten has done for me.
I have seen Erick in action: jury selection, witness cross examinations, raising objections to the prosecution during the trial and so much more were the areas where he had an expertise. He fought hard for me. After long battle which lasted for almost two years my assault case in Smith County was dismissed.
I highly recommend Erick Platten as a defense attorney for complex and serious criminal cases.

What a relief!!! I was worried sick about how much I was going to have to pay for a speeding ticket through a school zone and how much my insurance rate would go up!!! One call to the very helpful staff and immediately knew I was in good hands. I dropped off my ticket and didn't have to worry about it again! Can't recommend this law firm enough!!!!!!

We hired Erick to work our car wreck case. The driver hit us and ran off. His office not only helped us track down the guy that hit us but also got us the money we needed to fix our car and more.
