Biography

 

Eric Meyer specializes in representing injured victims. Drawing from a background in various blue-collar industries, being a prosecutor, and working as house-counsel for a major insurance company, he represents the injured and their families with precision and understanding. Eric has been named a "Rising Star" by Super Lawyers magazine the last three years in a row. This places him in the top 2.5% of attorneys in California. Eric has also been named a top lawyer in Sacramento by Sacramento Magazine 2 out of the last 3 years. In 2013, Eric and his wife, Ashley, opened Meyer Law Offices, now Meyer Injury Lawyers in Northern California. In 2022, they opened Meyer Injury Lawyers in Idaho.

They live in the Treasure Valley with their sons Brian Jay and Easton and their beautiful daughter, Brooklyn. Most people think of "law" as a chrome-plated world dictated by big egos and political correctness. Eric was drawn to a more practical world of law - one where hard-working, good people have nothing to fear. Eric learned that those were precisely the people he wanted to help the most. Eric grew up working on his family's ranch outside of Sacramento and in the construction industry. He was initiated into the world of law as a 16-year-old Cadet at the Sutter County Sheriff's Department, and later went on to study criminal justice in college.

After law school, Eric returned to Sutter County as a Deputy District Attorney. Over the next few years, Eric honed his skills as a trial lawyer by handling over a thousand cases in court. Looking back, Eric says, "I see how my experience on the family ranch and at the sheriff department grounded and groomed me to build a reputation as a hard-working lawyer with high professional and moral standards. I brought my blue-collar work ethic into a white collar world."

The point at which Eric realized his mission as an attorney came during his time as in-house counsel at Farmers Insurance. He saw that multi-billion dollar insurance companies were taking advantage of good, honest, hard working people that had been victimized and injured. At that point, Eric decided to leave Farmers Insurance and start fighting for the injured victims.

Eric says, "It is painful to see people who share my work ethic and personal standards get injured and bullied by these multi-billion-dollar insurance companies who put profit ahead of the health of injured victims.

That's why I stay motivated every day to fight for my clients." When Eric is not in court or at the office, he enjoys camping, hiking, hunting, fishing, cycling, and shooting archery with his beautiful wife, Ashley, and their three amazing kids, Brian Jay, Easton, and Brooklyn.
