When a trial is unavoidable, clients draw on Eric’s experience trying cases in courts and arbitration venues across the country. Eric is a Fellow of The American College of Trial Lawyers. Chambers USA has recognized Eric as a leading practitioner for Litigation: White Collar Crime & Government Investigations, where clients describe him as “fearless in the courtroom” and worthy of “any complex or sophisticated matter.” Whether leading an internal investigation of alleged employee malfeasance, strategizing a demand letter response, or interfacing with the Department of Justice on a grand jury subpoena, Eric views each matter through the lens of trial.

From 2008 to 2018, Eric served as an Assistant U.S. Attorney in New Jersey, where he investigated and prosecuted significant white-collar matters involving health care and securities fraud, money laundering, obstruction of justice, and violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, the Food, Drug & Cosmetic Act, and the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act cases. In that Office’s Special Prosecutions Division, Eric handled corruption cases, such as the high-profile trials of the Philadelphia District Attorney and the Mayor of Trenton. In his various supervisory roles, including as Co-Chief of the Criminal Division, Eric oversaw that Office’s Economic Crimes, Asset Forfeiture, and General Crimes Units, and Bank Secrecy Act/Suspicious Activity Report Task Force.
