Review Eric Cruz

About Me

Associate attorney with Bivins & Hemenway, P.A., a commercial business law and real estate law firm with offices based in the Greater Brandon area east of Tampa Bay, serving clients located in and having business and real estate interests throughout West Central Florida. Part of a diverse practice group with deep experience in a wide range of commercial business, real estate, and estate planning matters. My practice focuses on business law, real estate transactions, and estate planning.


My education included a strong emphasis on business and estate planning topics, and I developed further experience with estate planning and probate matters by serving as a student extern in the probate division of the Eighth Judicial Circuit Court in Alachua County, Florida. My interests include sports and the growing role of hispanic businesses in Florida.
