Every day I get to come to an office and work with great people doing what I love to do. My professional life is very satisfying, but it's not everything. I'm happily married (35 years as of 2014), with six children and thirteen grandchildren. I garden with perennials and vegetables. I volunteer at my church and in the BSA. My time as a member of the Kennewick City Planning Commission including a term as its chairman taught me much about the City I live in. Three years on the Discipinary Board of the Washington State Bar Association allowed me to learn from great fellow lawyers and citizen members who were examples of great public servants. I am grateful to live in the Northwest and the Tri-Cities.

Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer
Eric is always the first attorney I turn to when I have a question about landlord-tenant law or any kind of real estate transaction. He has a real talent for getting all parties on the same page so that a deal can be closed as quickly and efficiently as possible. The real estate law knowledge that he has acquired over the years is impressive, and there is no questioning his honesty and integrity.

Eric is an excellent, thorough attorney. I refer all real estate matters to him. The people I refer to Eric uniformly get back to me and let me know what a great job he did for them. I give him my highest recommendation.
