About Me

I am a problem solver by nature and enjoy tackling new and different pursuits. Besides practicing law and representing those in need, I also enjoy reading, gardening, fishing, hunting, simple carpentry, and playing drums in a rock and roll band Local Mullet. My proudest achievements are my children and the work I have done professionally and as a volunteer for social justice. It is my hope that what I do each day leaves the world a better place for my children and those around me.

  • M. James "Jim" Jenkins

    I have seen Eric’s work as a litigator since he was an Assistant State Attorney years ago. He is extremely thorough, creative, socially adept and intelligent. He has become a star in the Northwest Florida area at defending those accused of driving under the influence. I have been a trial lawyer for thirty years, have a preeminent rating (AV) from Martindale-Hubbell ™ and would not stake my reputation or recommend someone who I truly did not believe is not only extremely effective but also has a high degree of personal and professional integrity. If a family member or close friend needed an accomplished DUI attorney in our area I would immediately send them to Eric Stevenson.
