Eric graduated cum laude from Marquette Law School in 1989 and practiced in insurance defense litigation and subrogation in both private practice and as in house counsel. His marriage of thirty-six years has blessed him and his wife Colleen with two sons, a surgeon and a nuclear pharmacist. They are expecting their first grandchild in May who will be living just six blocks away from his or her grandparents. Eric says that he has enjoyed his time at MWL, particularly the open and supportive environment in which there was a great deal of individual responsibility coupled with extensive and comprehensive group resources.
In retirement he plans to travel, enjoy being a helpful and handy grandparent as well as pursue his numerous hobbies which include home brewing, sausage making and cooking. His favorite movie is Dustin Hoffman’s epic Little Big Man. His favorite TV programming is anything history (particularly military history) including historical drama, or, when things need to lighten up a bit, the detective series Lucifer. Sadly his favorite restaurant in Wisconsin, Polonez, closed last year. Eric is working on recreating the recipes at home and for now contents himself with the offerings at Kegel’s Inn, in West Allis, Wisconsin.
Matthiesen, Wickert & Lehrer, S.C. would like to thank Eric for all of his hard work over the years and wish him well in this new chapter of life.
