Eric is an attorney with a license to practice in the State of Texas. He is also a fully registered and licensed patent attorney with the United States Patent and Trademark Office. Before opening his own practice, he developed legal experience working for small and mid-sized law firms which primarily focused on business and intellectual property. Eric brings experience to patent and trademark prosecution (drafting, searching, filing). He is equally experienced in contract formation, review, and modification. He is a proud father and a hardworking husband who values his family. Eric graduated from St. Mary's University School of Law, where he focused his studies for a career in intellectual property law. While a student there he became the president of the Technology & Intellectual Property Law Association. Eric interned at the University of Texas at San Antonio Office of Commercialization and Innovation, which manages the university's intellectual property development. Afterwards, he accepted a position as a legal clerk doing research, review, and drafting of legal documents for an IP boutique law firm. Prior to his legal career, Eric was a scientist. Upon graduating from The University of Texas at Austin with a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry, he worked for Southwest Research Institute. In that time he worked on many highly technical projects in various capacities including researcher, author, and plant operator. Eric is a San Antonio native, born and raised. As such he has seen many changes over the years. Recently, he has seen the effects that a lack of access to quality legal services has had on the local economy. Many individuals and small businesses risk the dangers of not seeking legal consultation because it is simply not affordable. But it is his sincere hope to change that dynamic by using affordable access to the legal system as a means to even the field for individuals, start-ups, and small businesses alike.
