WRONGFUL DEATH, INJURY & INSURANCE BAD FAITH ATTORNEY. PRIOR DEFENSE AND CLAIMS ADJUSTER EXPERIENCE. FREE CASE REVIEW.

I am a trial lawyer committed to helping individuals and their families reclaim their lives after losing a loved one or suffering injury because of the negligence of others. I began my legal career working as a defense attorney for an insurance company. Through taking cases to trial and countless arbitrations, I saw first-hand how insurance companies can quickly lose sight of the human aspect of injury and insurance claims, viewing cases merely as business concerns to be settled cheaply or hard-fought, regardless of cost. Later in my career, I defended insurance companies in bad faith litigation. Currently, I represent injury victims in personal injury, traumatic brain injury, insurance bad faith, medical malpractice, medical device defect, and product liability cases.

Prior to entering law school, I worked as a property and casualty claims adjuster for two national insurers, handling wildfire and mudslide catastrophe claims in California, as well as mid to large loss claims arising from hurricanes in the Southern U.S.

My experience both as a claims adjuster and lawyer taught me that in order to obtain the best settlement, you have to show the insurance company and/or the defense you are willing and prepared to take the case to trial. For this reason, I prepare every case as if it is going to trial from day one.

Higher, More Accurate Valuation on Employment Law Case. Well-Researched Strategy. Passionate. Fearless & Tough.
I had two conversations with Eric who took the time to research and develop a strategically sound framework on my wrongful termination/disability discrimination case. He displayed compassion, passion (where other lawyers came across as more cautious/calm/detached), conveyed confidence in my case even with knowing its "weaknesses" and appeared unafraid to pursue tougher claims. I ended up signing with another law firm who had a lot of positive reviews but who later expressed less confidence in proving causation for my pain and suffering claim. I reached back out to Eric, who was booked, much to my regret. I would advise others to not assume a lawyer with a lot of positive reviews is automatically the best fit, I wonder if some of these lawyers may have achieved their review quantity by taking easy cases and settling too early. I would highly recommend asking any and all lawyers tough questions on case valuation before signing an agreement, regardless of reviews. Eric valued my case and me as a potential client more than some other firms while offering more services. I believe him when he says he tends to do well in front of a jury based on his storytelling ability. I would highly recommend reaching out to Eric for your employment law needs as I believe he is tough and top notch.
