As a lawyer, I have the privilege of helping good people through the most difficult times in their lives. I am proud of what I do. I enjoy every day I practice law. Call if I can help you.

Raised in Tippecanoe County, Eric was eager to return home after college and law school to take care of the people in his home town. Often, Eric helps people by trying cases in court. Other times, he works with clients to put together contracts, businesses or estate plans. Every client is different and Eric takes pride in helping each one succeed.
