Eric came to the Bronx in 1999 – after joining the Legal Aid Society of New York – to continue his public interest work in the field of criminal defense, by handling all types of criminal matters ranging from simple trespassing cases to serious felonies, where life imprisonment was a possibility. In 2009, Eric opened up his own practice in the Bronx, focusing on criminal defense and civil rights litigation.
In his career, Eric has never shied away from challenges and has taken dozens of cases to trial and gained favorable jury verdicts in matters ranging from shoplifting and misdemeanor assault to violent robberies and attempted murder. On behalf of his clients, Eric has recovered millions of dollars in settlements from the NYPD and the City of New York, in cases alleging all types of police misconduct, including false arrest and excessive force.
