Eric grew up in New Smyrna Beach. He loves the area and has chosen to dedicate his life to enhancing the lives of those around him.

Eric has been working with his father, Bill, at the Preston Law Firm since 2013. This job allows Eric to take an active role in the betterment of the lives of his fellow citizens and he couldn’t be any happier.

Prior to coming home to New Smyrna and working with his father, Eric began his career at the State Attorney’s Office in Orlando in 2011. While at the State Attorney’s Office, he spent two years prosecuting misdemeanors, DUI’s, juvenile cases, and eventually felonies. In that time, he brought more than sixty cases to trial. This job allowed Eric to gain an intimate knowledge of how to litigate a case and he became very comfortable in the courtroom.

Since joining The Preston Law Firm, Eric has focused his efforts on estate planning, wills, trusts, probate, trust administration, and elder law (e.g., Medicaid planning) so as to better serve the needs of the community.

Eric is excited to meet you, so call to set an appointment today!
