Your knowledge of the law and excellent advice has not only kept me from going to jail, but has saved me thousands of dollars.

Eric is a seasoned litigator with extensive experience in insurance, business and commercial matters and appeals, estate planning and probate litigation, and criminal defense.

Eric has extensive experience in the business world and in assisting individuals and entities with a wide variety of needs. Between college and law school he spent more than a decade working in the insurance industry, from directing investigations related to fraudulent claims to learning the ins and outs of the field. After law school he worked in-house for AAA’s legal department before moving on to private practice where he has had the opportunity to be of service to clients in a more individual capacity. He has a long track record of helping people deal with some of life’s most difficult situations in a calm, constructive and effective manner.

Although insurance and business litigation are the backbone of Eric’s practice, he takes a more comprehensive approach to client service that includes meeting not just their immediate needs but also planning for future prosperity. An important component of this is estate and succession planning with an eye towards protecting assets and continuity of enterprise, and providing his clients with the maximum flexibility to conduct their affairs cloaked by as much protection as possible, while ensuring their welfare and that their wishes are respected and carried out.

Eric brings his strong academic and professional experience to every interaction, and puts those skills to use in service of his clients every day. He is dedicated to his clients and also to his community where he is very active. He has handled hundreds of complex business, estate and probate cases and always does his best to achieve his clients’ goals in a professional and cost-effective manner.

Prior to opening joining the firm, Eric was an associate for the Schwartz Law Firm in Farmington Hills, and for Schoolmaster, Hom, Killeen, Siefer, Arene & Hoehn.
