The Law Office of Michael P. Ericson operates primarily as a litigation practice, representing clients both in and out of court in various areas of civil litigation and criminal/traffic defense. Mr. Ericson has represented well over one thousand clients in legal matters affecting everything from their financial condition, to their family affairs, and even their long term freedom.
Mr. Ericson has civil litigation experience in both business litigation and personal injury work. His civil practice has evolved to primarily represent clients seeking damages due to others' negligence or intentional conduct. Mr. Ericson has secured many settlements on behalf of his clients which have allowed them to be made whole and move on with their lives. He has also represented both men and women in family law cases, ranging from divorces with no minor children and limited financial assets to divorces involving custody battles and disputes over considerable financial estates.
In Mr. Ericson's criminal/traffic defense practice, he has been called upon to represent clients in everything from minor traffic offenses to high level felonies. Being arrested and charged with committing a crime--any crime--can be a terrifying experience, with significant repercussions regardless of how the case plays out in court. By practicing in the private sector, Mr. Ericson is able to choose which cases he takes. His motion practice has resulted in the dismissal of all charges in a number of cases, and when a dismissal of all charges is not possible, Mr. Ericson has a track record of achieving highly favorable plea agreements and victories at argued sentencing hearings, including numerous times when the government sought a prison sentence or other serious ramifications for his clients' lives.
