Eric Ziegenhorn was drawn to the legal field because he likes to challenge himself and to solve problems. Born in the Kansas City area, he attended the University of Missouri-Columbia, obtaining an Economincs degree with honors in 1980. He then obtained his Juris Doctorate from University of California–Berkeley (Boalt Hall), graduating in the top third of his class.
Throughout his career, Eric has focused on real estate and estate planning. In 2019, he joined Creative Planning Legal, P.A., and has strengthened and expanded his estate planning practice. He continues his real estate estate transactional work, with an emphasis on real estate leases, purchase and sale transactions, and lending. He is admitted to practice law in California, Missouri, Kansas, and Georgia, but can perform work on a nationwide basis in conjunction with his network of local counsel.
Eric is also active as an author for West Publishing division of Thompson Reuters. Applying his enthusiasm for problem-solving and intellectual challenge, he recently completed a project drafting Westlaw real estate forms for use by other attorneys on a national basis. He has authored a popular three volume set of legal forms with West Publishing Co., currently in print, for use by Missouri lawyers [Missouri Legal Forms 3d Vols. 6, 6A & 7].
