Biography

Eric began practicing law in 2004 and joined Kiernan Plunkett & Redihan in 2010. His primary area of practice is civil litigation with a focus on claims involving negligence, wrongful death, medical malpractice, nursing home liability, premises liability, product liability and liquor liability. He also litigates matters involving construction disputes, real estate disputes, business disputes and land title issues. Eric counsels his clients on business planning matters, estate planning matters and real estate transactions. He has extensive experiencing arguing matters in Rhode Island Superior Court. He has also successfully prosecuted multiple cases before the Rhode Island Supreme Court and the United States District Court for the District of Rhode Island.

Recently, Eric won a week-long civil jury trial, obtaining a judgment in excess of $500,000.00 on behalf of a client that was assaulted in barroom. He successfully defended a jury verdict before the Rhode Island Supreme Court when the defendant sought to overturn a $600,000.00 judgment in favor of Eric’s client. In an action involving a permanent brain injury with claims of breach of contract and bad faith, Eric argued multiple aspects of the litigation before both the United States District Court and Rhode Island Superior Court and ultimately obtained $11,000,000.00 in insurance coverage for his client in a decision that was recognized by Rhode Island Lawyer’s Weekly as one of the most significant cases of the year.

Eric has lectured for the Rhode Island Bar Association on topics including dram shop law and liquor liability claims; the use of accident reconstruction technology in litigation; statutory arbitration; protecting client confidentiality in health care communications; effective civil discovery techniques; and ethics in client communications. He is a member of the Rhode Island Bar Committee for Continuing Legal Education. Eric has been recognized as a SuperLawyers Rising Star from 2013 through 2018.
