Eric W. Ferguson, is a member of the firm’s municipal practice area, and focuses most of his practice on representing our municipal corporate clients in all aspects of their legal needs—from land-use, to personnel to public works projects, Eric enjoys helping local governments achieve their vision for their jurisdictions. He handles civil and administrative litigation, as well as supervises external litigation for our municipal clients. He has been with the firm since 2014. Eric is a member of the Washington State Municipal Attorneys Association and has offered extensive training to our municipal clients on public records requests and records retention and been a presenter at the AWC Elected Officials Essentials on governance issues for local governments.
After trying several careers prior to law school, Eric began his legal career in 2004 with several internships ranging from drafting and researching for Municipal Research Services Center, to prosecuting for the City of Auburn, WA, to investigating whistleblower complaints for the U.S. Dept. of Labor-OSHA Whistleblower Investigations Division. Since graduation from law school in 2006, Eric maintained a private general practice in the Puget Sound area for 7 years focusing mostly on bankruptcy, criminal defense, and estate planning before moving to Eastern Washington to practice primarily municipal law in 2014. Eric’s diverse life and professional experiences enable him to connect with our clients on a personal level. Whether a front-line staff member or an elected official, Eric enjoys building lasting relationships to accomplish long-term goals.
When he is not assisting our municipal clients with their legal issues, Eric enjoys spending his time with his wonderful family and working to restore his beloved 1976 Fiat Spider.
