I am, first and foremmost, a TRIAL ATTORNEY. I help individual humans fight against injustice. Whether you have been injured by someone else's carelessness in an accident, whether you have been falsely accused of a crime, or whether your spouse is trying to divorce you and take everything you have, you need a TRIAL ATTORNEY. TRIAL ATTORNEYS are skilled fighters who understand that unless you fight back hard against prosecutors, insurance defense lawyers and divorce lawyers, your will not get justice.
I am a former U.S. Marine Corps lieutenant colonel. I spent the vast majority of my career in military courtrooms all over the world fighting for the rights of U.S. servicemembers in every type of case imaginable, from petty theft and drug use to death penalty defense and national security and general officer matters.
I have also served as a courtroom judge and an appeals judge on the Navy-Marine Corps Court of Criminal Appeals. As a result, I am often able to predict how a judge is likely to rule in certain issues in your case and use that insight to set up a winning strategy.
Finally, I am a graduate of the Gerry Spence Trial Lawyers College in DuBois Wyoming. Very very few lawyers are selected to attend. It is a month long personal trial skills training experience, conducted by Gerry Spence himself, the greatest living trial attorney in U.S. history.
I will aggressively represent you and fight for justice - that is, justice for YOU.

Eric and I attended the nationally-renowned Gerry Spence Trial Lawyers College in Dubois, WY, together in 2011. There, I found Eric to be an extremely competent lawyer who cares deeply about his clients. I highly recommend Eric to anyone in the Northern Virginia area.
