Focused on efficient, economic dispute resolution, Eric realizes that litigation is not always the best or only solution to achieve favorable results. He has in-depth experience with alternative dispute resolution, including arbitration and mediation. His comprehensive litigation experience also provides him with the expertise to handle related transactional matters, such as in the industries of banking, cannabis law, construction, and real estate.

Eric has conducted more than 100 jury trials, bench trials, arbitrations, and evidentiary and procedural hearings, including defending against several class action cases. These have taken place in the federal, bankruptcy, and state courts, before arbitral hearing panels, as well as in several administrative agencies and self-regulatory organizations. He has also briefed and argued numerous appeals, in federal and state courts of appeal, the Colorado Supreme Court, and before self-regulatory organizations.

Eric has handled numerous proceedings in other states, including Wyoming, New York, Florida, Michigan, Illinois, and Texas. In addition, he has extensive experience in cases before:

  • the American Arbitration Association;
  • the Judicial Arbiter Group;
  • the Securities and Exchange Commission;
  • the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority ("FINRA", previously the National Association of Securities Dealers ("NASD"));
  • the NASD National Adjudicatory Council;
  • the Certified Financial Planner Board; the Colorado Presiding Disciplinary Judge/Attorney Regulation Committee;
  • the Colorado Board of Law Examiners;
  • the Colorado Department of Labor; and
  • within the municipal systems of Denver and Colorado Springs.

Eric has taken and defended over 100 depositions in Colorado, California, Arizona, Texas, Illinois, Iowa, Wisconsin, Florida, New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, and Michigan, as well as abroad in London, England; Dusseldorf, Germany; and Larnaka, Cyprus. Eric has also represented clients in almost 100 mediations throughout Colorado, as well as in Michigan and Illinois.

Eric began his career as a law clerk for then-Colorado Supreme Court Chief Justice Anthony F. Vollack. He is active on the CBA’s Ethics Committee, serves on The Colorado Lawyer's Board of Editors, and has chaired the Judicial Performance Commission for the 17th Judicial District, a position to which he was appointed by former Colorado Senate President Stanly T. Matsunaka. He is also completing a 10-year term on the Colorado Supreme Court Board of Law Examiners, to which he was appointed by former Colorado Supreme Court Chief Justice Mary J. Mullarkey.

Eric is committed to giving back to the community. He served on the Board of Family Star, a nonprofit that provides early education opportunities to underserved populations, and is a past recipient of the CBA’s Metro Volunteer Lawyers Award.

Eric is licensed to practice law in Colorado and Illinois. He has been admitted to practice by courts in Arizona, Florida, Michigan, New York, Texas, and Wyoming.
