About Eric

Learn Eric’s areas of practice.

Eric loves the law and is a dedicated advocate for his clients.  In 2015, he received a state-wide award in criminal defense for "triumphing over relentless, and at times unfair, pressure from government actors."
Prior to his law practice, Eric was an attorney (called a "law clerk") at the Idaho Supreme Court. While at the Idaho Supreme Court, Eric worked closely with the justices and developed invaluable insights into how to succeed on appeal. Since he left the Idaho Supreme Court, he has submitted numerous written briefs to appeals courts and argued before the Idaho Supreme Court and Washington Court of Appeals.
Eric was raised in the Tri-Cities, and after several years of practicing law outside of Washington, he decided it was time to return to his hometown community.

Great attorney
I hired Eric to help me with some issues I had with the government. He put me at ease right away and let me know I could get through my legal problems. I felt better right away after I talked to him. By the end of my case, he had gotten me a great result!

So helpful and kind
Eric is so nice and kind, and he's very smart too. I tried to represent myself and got nowhere with the prosecutor. After I hired Eric, he got my case reduced to an infraction!! And it took hardly any time at all! I recommend him to all my friends... he's an awesome lawyer!

Above and beyond
Eric went above and beyond while helping me with personal legal matters. He cared not only about the case but my personal well being. He doesn’t make decisions for you but instead lays out all the options and counsels how to move forward. He is the best in the biz!

Eric Scott
Eric represented me in a criminal case and I was acquitted of all charges. I feel like he really cared and put a lot of hard work and time into my case. I highly recommend him!

"I worked opposite Mr. Scott when he was appointed on a difficult contempt matter. He was always courteous and sought ways to resolve the matter without litigation, but he was also very skillful in his use of motion practice to defend a client in a difficult position."
