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.
"Hard to find a place that genuinely cares about you and your loved ones. Most people don't understand cases sometimes take years to settle and want results and answers right away. My case took about a year and they made sure to communicate with me every step of the way. Im sure this company has thousands of cases, but they always take the time to keep in contact with me. Couldn't say enough good things about the staff they always go above and beyond for their clients."
"Curtis and his firm are great at what they do. They've been representing clients in abuse and neglect cases for years; his team is smart, hardworking, and they truly care about their clients. Curtis is the utmost professional and will do whatever is needed for his clients to obtain the justice they deserve."
"I am an attorney in another field of practice and have referred many friends and clients to The Clinesmith Firm. They are exceptional attorneys, very responsive to their clients, and put their client's best interests first. I have observed them in the courtroom and they offer outstanding representation to their clients in the courtroom. I highly recommend The Clinesmith Firm"
