About me

I have spent most of the past 27 years helping individuals and companies solve their employment issues.  My expertise in the field has been recoginzed by my peers who have sought me out to help them sucessfully resolve their own employment litigation issues.


In addition, much of my work has come from referrals mainly from long time practitioners who recognize my passion for providing lasting solutions for my clients. 


I have also been active in the community having previously served on a site counsel for my children's elementry school as well as the financial counsel for my parish.  More recently I have been active in coaching athletics including 15 years coaching youth and AAU basketball as well as youth football and soccer teams.

  • Christopher Robert Walsh

    I heartily endorse this lawyer. Eric Satre is one of the preeminent Plaintiff's employment attorneys in Minnesota. We practiced together in a small firm many years ago. We worked as co-counsel and tried cases together, during and after our work at that firm. Eric's caring and thoughtful advice to me and our clients over the years has been outstanding. His hard work, insight, and practical knowledge regarding so many areas of employment and discrimination law has helped us win or settle many cases and resolve employment disputes. Eric Satre is the first person I call when I want to discuss a complex case in the employment arena. He never disappoints, and often suggests a legal theory or solution that is practical and sound, but creative and original.
