Eric began his legal career in the Midwest as a runner for Franklin & Hance (now Franklin Law Group), a plaintiff’s medical malpractice firm in Louisville, KY. In 1997 he moved to Jacksonville, Florida to attend Florida Coastal School of law. Eric worked full time as a clerk for Brown, Terrell & Hogan (now Terrell Hogan) and attended school at night. He graduated in 2001 and moved to Brevard County in 2004.

While working for Vance, Lotane & Bookhardt, Eric represented several local businesses and credit unions in foreclosure and collection matters and nation-wide insurance companies in subrogation matters that spanned the entire state. Eric now focuses his practice in the area of commercial litigation representing individuals and businesses in Brevard County.

Eric also takes the time to give back to the community by being involved in the United Way of Brevard County. He has served on the board of directors and was chair of the Emerging Leaders, a group of young professionals dedicated to volunteering and supporting the United Way. He also continues to serve yearly on the Campaign Cabinet board.
