Eric has called the Panama City area home since childhood. After high school, he enlisted in the United States Marines Corps. After serving in the Marines Eric began a career in law enforcement and is still a sworn police officer in the local area on reserve status.

While serving as a police officer, Eric specialized in traffic related offenses and investigation. In addition to being an expert in DUI enforcement he also served as a traffic homicide investigator. Being an officer specialized in traffic enforcement he investigated thousands of traffic crashes ranging from minor fender benders to those involving serious bodily injury and death. This experience uniquely distinguishes the way Eric looks at every case he reviews no matter the severity.

In 2013 Eric left full-time employment as a police officer to attend law school. He attended Faulkner University's Thomas Goode Jones School of Law in Montgomery, Alabama. While attending law school he focused his studies and efforts 100% on civil litigation. Eric was chosen to be on Faulkner’s traveling competition trial team and represented the school at the Capital City Classic, a national trial competition, in Washington D.C. in 2015. He served as the president of Faulkner's American Association of Justice student chapter and was also selected to serve on the Board of Advocates, an invitation-only group of students focused on honing litigation skills.

Eric is an active member of the Florida Justice Association, an organization that focuses on developing trial skills and protecting the rights of every Florida citizen. Eric is very active in his community serving on the Board of Directors for the Panama City Rescue Mission and as Secretary for the Rotary Club of Panama City Beach. When he is not volunteering his time he enjoys playing board games with friends and family, landscaping, target shooting, and attending any live entertainment that he can find.
