About
I possess a Juris Doctorate from Loyola University Chicago School of Law, a Legal Masters (LL.M.) in business law and a certification in international law.

I have a background in technology and worked as an author and editor before going to law school. My unique background in technology and business, combined with my legal experience has given me powerful tools to help guide entrepreneurs build new business ventures and to grow existing ones.

Additionally, I am a member of the IL Bar and the U.S. Court for the Northern District of Illinois Trial Bar, and I have made appearances in federal court for international legal issues.

"“Erik has acted as my company’s attorney since the nearly the very beginning and been instrumental in our success. He was not involved in the initial structuring of the company, but came in afterwards, reviewed our documents and found where potential problems and exposure to risk were. He worked to explain everything to us clearly and then drafted the documents to “fix” the problems. As we have grown, Erik has worked hard to make sure that everything from our contracts to the privacy policy on our website do the utmost for us. Recently he was extremely important and instrumental in helping us with complicated contract negotiation; not only did he save the deal by finding ways to structure the contract in ways the other side found agreeable, but he made it so that we actually had less risk exposure than when we started negotiations. His negotiation style, substance, and demeanor was truly amazing and his counsel was worth every cent.” – Rod Holmes of Chicago Style SEO"
