About Eric

Learn Eric’s areas of practice.

I grew up in Bluefield, West Virginia and was valedictorian of the Bluefield High School Class of 1989.  I enjoyed seven great years in Charlottesville, Virginia earning a bachelor's degree and law degree at the University of Virginia.  Living and practicing law in Richmond, Virginia (RVA) since 1996, I have strived to be active in the community through organizations such as the Greater Richmond Chamber of Commerce, Henrico Business Leaders, Richmond Tennis Association, Gayton Baptist Church, and Short Pump Rotary Club.  In 2010, I spearheaded RVA's bid to win the USTA's Best Tennis Town contest (we finished 3rd out of over 80 entrants and received a $25,000 grant to promote tennis throughout the community).


I have authored or co-authored three books, the most recent of which is a book celebrating over a century of tennis history in Richmond, Virginia.  The sales proceeds from that book (titled "Richmond - One of America's Best Tennis Towns") benefit the Richmond Tennis Association.

Excellent Small Business Attorney
Eric was recommended to us when our business started growing and diversifying. He has been an excellent guide through the maze of small business challenges. I would highly recommend him to any small business. ** President LTCPCMS

New Business Startup
Eric Perkins is great. My business partner and I decided to start a unique service business and needed to establish either a LLC or SCorp. Since we were both new to the business world and after doing extensive research, we went with Eric because he was highly recommended by people we trust in the area. After the first meeting, we knew we made the right decision. Eric thoroughly explained the process and guided us in the right direction, and he always responded quickly to our emails and calls. We highly recommend Eric Perkins for your legal needs.

Completely satisfied
I used Attorney Eric Perkins as my council when I was purchasing my franchise. He was thorough and precise and reported back to me with detail, the issues he found that need to be addressed with the Franchisor before I signed the agreement. I would recommend him to anyone purchasing a franchise.

Excellent reliable franchise attorney
Mr. Perkins helped guide me through the thorny, pitfall-laden process of starting my first business. He was patient, thorough, knowledgeable, punctual and altogether reliable. I am grateful to him for all his assistance.

Founder of For the Love of Poodles Rescue of Richmond, VA
Eric helped us set up our 501 c 3 status which can be quite overwhelming and he did a fantastic job for us setting up board and all we need to establish our non for profit and keep us on track and calm during the process.

President, Breath Matters of Virginia
Breath Matters approached Eric in early 2010 to help us file IRS papers for nonprofit, 501 C3 charity status. He told us what he needed in a timely manner, we obliged, and he executed. Eric was efficient, on time, and had no cost overruns. We continue to feel he would be our first option as an attorney. This is a man of his word!
