In addition to his formal legal education, Eric Ritigstein received training from the National Institute of Trial Advocacy. He utilizes his courtroom and appellate experience to represent clients who have been injured both on and off the job.
Before he joined Boxer & Gerson in January 2014, Eric spent six and a half years defending large insurance companies and their clients in personal injury matters. He eventually became frustrated and dissatisfied working to safeguard insurance money from seriously injured individuals. That’s when he decided to join Boxer & Gerson, where he pursues a personal injury practice devoted 100 percent to litigation.
Armed with unique insights and first-hand knowledge of the insurance adjusters’ mentality and common defense attorney tactics, Eric is committed to obtaining just compensation for those who have been injured and wronged.
Eric received his law degree from University of the Pacific’s McGeorge School of Law, where he was a member of the McGeorge Law Review. His bachelor’s degree in political science from Washington University in St. Louis was followed by a post-baccalaureate premedical certificate from Columbia University. In his spare time, Eric enjoys playing basketball and writing.
