Erik is a member of the State Bars of Alabama, Georgia and Mississippi and maintains a consistent presence in each state.

He is very active in the American Association of Justice (AAJ) where he teaches trial advocacy and litigation techniques to other lawyers across the country. These trial colleges allow Erik to offer his knowledge and experience and also expose him to innovative ideas being used by other lawyers.
