About me

My name is Eric D. Puryear, and I am an Attorney at Law who is licensed in the states of Illinois and Iowa.

My philosophy

I founded Puryear Law. P.C. to provide clients with professional,
prompt, and diligent legal services.  I firmly believe that the role of
an attorney is to help his clients with the many legal issues that each
of us faces in the modern world, and to do so in a way that builds trust
and confidence.  Towards that end, I pride myself on taking as much
time as is needed to meet with my clients – face to face.  Along the
sames lines, I ensure that phone calls and emails to my office are
promptly returned, and that clients are not left waiting for the legal
services that I know they need.  In sum, I don’t consider my job done
until my client’s needs have been fully met.

As a person with extensive computer and technology experience
(including a degree in Computer Science), I know that using the right
technology is essential in today’s world.  That is why I make use of the
latest technology in my law practice. I have found that making maximum
use of secure, encrypted computer and communication technology has
enabled me to reduce costs and improve the quality of my legal
services.  The net result is lower legal fees for my clients, better
service for my clients, and fewer environmental resources consumed by
needless printing/copying.

My practice areas include:

Criminal: All matters, ranging from murder to domestic violence,
OWI/DUI and traffic violations in Illinois and Iowa (both state and
Federal court).

Civil: General lawsuits, copyright, trademark, wills, personal
injury, divorce, child support, juvenile, forfeiture, etc. in Illinois
and Iowa (both state and Federal court).
