Eric is a civil litigator and trial lawyer.  He has taken over 75 cases to jury trial, along with hundreds of court trials, motion hearings and other court appearances.  Prior to joining GSW, he worked in the Multnomah County District Attorney's Office and for the in-house law offices of Farmers Insurance, where he learned to effectively resolve cases in the interest of his client.


Eric grew up in a small town in the Black Hills of South Dakota, where he learned his down-to-earth sensibility.  After earning a degree in Government from Augustana College, he moved to Washington, DC, where he helped launch and implement AmeriCorps, which involved traveling around the country to provide oversight and assistance to local AmeriCorps programs.  When his travels brought him to the Pacific Northwest, he knew immediately that he wanted to make Portland his home.


Having a strong commitment to public service, Eric has held numerous leadership positions with the Multnomah Bar Association, including President of the Young Lawyer Section and Chair of the Pro Bono Pledge Task Force. He has received the MBA's Award of Merit, as well as the Pro Bono Award. Additionally, he served as secretary of the Oregon State Bar's Judicial Administration Committee.



Eric's highest priority is being a father.  When not at the office, you are likely to find Eric with his son hiking, biking, skiing, bowling or watching sports with his son.

Highly recommend Mr. Eric Waxler!
I hadn't worked with a lawyer before so felt somewhat intimidated. Mr. Eric Waxler was professional, confident, compassionate, sincere and also has a great sense of humor which was much appreciated as it eased my nervousness. Mr. Waxler was communicative and kept me the loop every step of the way. He went to bat for me and I am very happy with the results we got. Overall, a great experience working with Mr. Waxler and highly recommend him.

"Professional and effective advocate. Pleasure to work with."
Litigation Attorney | May 24
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I have known Eric for many years, and have had many cases against him. No matter how difficult the matters were that we had to deal with, Eric remained professional, courteous, and good natured. He's an intelligent, capable, and kind person. I would recommend him without reservation."
Litigation Attorney | Jan 04
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I have know Eric as defense attorney for years. I have had the opportunity to work on cases with him as a co-defendant attorney. I found him to be thoroughly prepared, knowledgeable, professional and an all around nice guy to deal with."
Personal injury Attorney | Oct 18
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Lots of lawyers claim to be trial lawyers but don't actually try cases. Eric isn't one of them. He's proven himself in courtrooms throughout the state and his clients know that he's the real deal. If I needed a lawyer to defend me, he'd be on my short list."
