I don't take every case. I try to take cases where there is evidence of innocence and/or a political reason that someone is being picked on by the Government. I focus all of my time and energy on criminal defense. I am influenced by being a graduate of Gerry Spence's highly prestigious Trial Lawyers College. At this school in Wyoming I learned how to speak the truth to succeed for clients. In addition to my law degree from UW Madison, I have two masters degrees: in counseling and political studies. In law school I won the celebrated Sigman award for "scholarship, character, and contribution to the community." I am proud of having an outstanding trial record and being known for my caring attitude towards clients.
I charge a flat fee for all of my services. I do this so that you and I can both focus on what needs to be done to win your case without worrying about the hours involved. When appropriate, I actually look forward to going to trial. Being charged with a crime can be a frightening and humiliating experience, but I know that every person has done amazing things in their life and has the potential to do even better. I take very seriously my opportunity to help you so that you can make the most of your life.

I endorse this lawyer's work. Full disclosure: I am Eric's brother-in-law. That means I love him for reasons on beyond his legal advocacy. But it also means that I know how hard he works for every client. If you want a lawyer who is in it to make money as fast as he can and then get out to the golf course, Eric is not your guy. If you want someone who will listen carefully to your side of the story, who will make your cause his own, and who will go to the mat for you, then you want Eric. He loves his work and will not back down when your life, your rights, your liberty and your dignity are on the line.
