Erik’s interest in workplace investigations arises from his experience as an employment attorney. He handled many cases where a lawsuit could have been avoided if the employer had conducted a fair, thorough, and impartial investigation. Erik wants to help people avoid lawsuits and get back to work by doing such investigations.


Before joining OIG, Erik was Of Counsel with the Bohm Law Group, where he counseled and represented plaintiffs in employment lawsuits including claims primarily alleging discrimination against various protected classes, whistleblower retaliation, wrongful termination, and/or defamation. He started his career as an environmental attorney, enforcing the federal Clean Water Act with a boutique Bay Area environmental law firm.

In law school, Erik worked with two student-led environmental organizations. He organized the Ecology Law Quarterly’s annual fundraising 5k run/walk event: Race Judicata, as well as the Environmental Law Society’s annual environmental law symposium.

Erik also served in the U.S. Army as a finance specialist from 1996-2000. He deployed to Bosnia in 1997-1998, and to Kosovo in 1999-2000.

Outside the Office

In his free time, Erik enjoys playing strategy board games, going backpacking, and spending time with family and friends.
