Eric was born and raised in Sacramento, California. He earned his undergraduate degree at California State University, Sacramento, and earned his Juris Doctor at the University of Akron School of Law. He began his legal career as a sole practitioner, taking cases involving wills, trusts and estate planning. Some of those he helped were residents of nursing homes or long-term care facilities, and he became very familiar with the difficulties faced by clients in these environments.
After marrying and starting a family, Eric took a position as an associate attorney with a small law firm, where he honed his litigation skills in areas such as health law, labor and employment law, and personal injury. In 2013, Eric moved to the Dallas area to begin the next stage of his legal career. He joined the Clinesmith Law Firm in 2018, bringing not only his personal and professional experience with elder care, but also an intense dedication to improving the circumstances of the elderly and their families. He looks forward to serving you and helping to ensure the best legal protection and support is available to you in all your elder care needs.
