Eric has been practicing family law for over twenty years and has a broad range of litigation experience.
He graduated from University of California, Hastings College of the Law in 1989. While there, he was an editor of the COMMENT Law Journal and helped tenants in San Francisco with landlord-tenant issues at the San Francisco Housing Clinic. Before attending law school, Eric graduated from Pitzer College of the Claremont Colleges and earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Economics.
Prior to joining the Schoenberg Family Law Group, P.C., Eric worked for a plaintiff’s civil law firm in Oakland where he managed and litigated a wide range of civil cases ranging in subject from personal injury to complex contracts and class actions. It was during this time that Eric was able to use his broad range of litigation experience to head the firm’s family law department where he was able to practice his true passion in law, representing men and women in family law disputes.
In 2001, Eric partnered with another law firm in San Francisco where he was able to specialize in family law. Eric’s family law experience is extensive, ranging from simple support matters to the most complex custody and property division cases. His court room experience is likewise extensive, spanning short cause support hearings to first chairing multiple day trials. Eric understands how difficult and stressful family law issues can be to his clients. His top priority in any case is to help his clients through these most difficult times by working with his clients to keep them fully informed and updated, and representing them in the most efficient and knowledgeable way to obtain the best results possible for them and their family.
Outside of his work as a family law attorney, Eric is the proud father of his daughter and enjoys doing stand-up comedy at various clubs in the Bay Area.
