Imaginative and yearning to explore with measured recklessness, Eric Fong lives for the adrenalin only a courtroom provides. With over 100 civil and criminal jury trials under his belt, few equal his experience in the courtroom.
Eric protected low-income housing residents of WA State against oppressive crime control measures, creating the constitutional right to intimate association. His $91,000,000 verdict is the largest compensatory damages verdict for one person in Washington State. His representation of iconic funk musician & legend, George Clinton allowed Mr. Clinton to keep his historic body of work. Decided in the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, this is the definitive copyright case in the United States.

Opening Statement & Closing Argument
The plaintiff, Will, was a 31-year-old man who walked into a convenience store to buy Gatorade. Unbeknownst to Will, the store was being robbed. The clerk asked Will to call 911 and the robber left the store. As Will walked back outside to see what was going on, he saw a person inside his car. Will went up to his car and asked the person what they were doing. It was the robber, who pulled out a baseball bat and hit Will’s head multiple times, causing a brain injury.
