Review Eric Correira

About Me

I concentrate my practice in the areas of estate tax planning, business planning, and trust, estate, and tax litigation. I am admitted to practice in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Florida, United States District Court (Massachusetts and Rhode Island) and United States Tax Court.


I received my Bachelor of Arts degree from The George Washington University, and my Juris Doctor and LL.M. in Taxation degrees from Villanova University School of Law. I also completed Villanova’s Estate Planning Certificate program.


I have coauthored two chapters for Massachusetts Continuing Legal Education Inc. (MCLE)’s New England Law Practice Collection entitled “Construction of Wills” and “Asset Protection Trusts.” I have had articles published on a variety of estate planning topics in Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly, Rhode Island Lawyers Weekly and the Rhode Island Bar Journal. I am also a lecturer on estate planning and asset protection for the National Business Institute.
