Eric J. Gold has been a Los Angeles lawyer since being admitted to the California State Bar on December 20, 1999.
Mr. Gold obtained his law degree (Juris Doctorate) in 1999, from the University of LaVerne, College of Law. Mr. Gold opted to attend the four-year, part-time, evening program, so that he could pursue his commercial freight transportation business during the day. While in law school, Mr. Gold was a contributing author to the law review (The Journal of Legal Advocacy and Practice) and received various academic awards.
In 1993, Mr. Gold earned a Master of Science degree in Macomb, Illinois at Western Illinois University. This advanced degree focused primarily on macro-level administration. The degree was completed through a professional internship with a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit outdoor cycling advocacy organization. At the conclusion of the internship program, Mr. Gold became the first full-time, paid employee of that organization. Today, Mr. Gold remains an avid cyclist.
He received his Bachelor of Science degree in 1991, from Colorado State University (CSU) in Fort Collins, Colorado. His major was Human Development and Family Studies, with an interdisciplinary focus in gerontology (the study of the elderly and aging of America). This program was through the CSU, College of Applied Human Sciences. This background provides a unique perspective into family related issues and dynamics.

I endorse this lawyer. Attorney Gold and I practice in some of the same areas of the law, so I have had the opportunity to review many of his hundreds of answers. I find that his advice is invariably not only legally sound, but also practical and helpful. I would not hesitate to recommend Attorney Gold's services to a friend or relative. He is a great resource for the Avvo community and I am looking forward to his participation in the forum in the future. James Frederick
