Eric began Chisholm Law LLC on the premise that every client deserves individualized attention from their attorney.
Many large firms pass their clients to paralegals or an associate for the duration of their case, and clients often meet their attorney for the first time on the day their case is heard in court. Eric believes the attorney-client relationship is a partnership that begins well in advance of the courtroom. Eric returns calls. All the time. You won’t wait weeks to get a return phone call. Eric takes the time to speak with each client and listens…really listens…to his or her specific needs and concerns and crafts a legal strategy to mirror those unique issues.
Eric received his undergraduate degree cum laude from Salem State College and his law degree from Suffolk University Law School. He was an enlisted member of the Massachusetts Army National Guard from 1995 until 2001. While attending Suffolk University Law School, Eric was a member of the Voluntary Prosecutor’s Clinic representing the Commonwealth of Massachusetts as a 3.03 certified Assistant District Attorney where he obtained direct and valuable courtroom experience.
Eric began his legal career working for a national Social Security Disability firm representing claimants throughout the country filing for SSDI benefits. From there, he moved onto one of the more prestigious workers’ compensation insurance defense firms in the Commonwealth representing large insurance companies and self-insured entities. Craving a return to helping those in need, and with the direct knowledge of how insurance companies operate, Eric transitioned to one of the more respected employee firms in the state and remained there for over a decade. During his tenure, Eric received industry wide recognition for his work helping injured workers with an “AV” rating from Martindale Hubbell, a 10.0 rating from AVVO, and was also recognized by Super Lawyers Magazine as one of the best workers’ compensation attorneys in the Commonwealth under 40 years old from 2008-2012*.
