Eric began his practice in 2007 as a civil litigator with Farris Vaughan Wills & Murphy LLP, where he gained valuable experience representing both injured plaintiffs and defendant insurers in personal injury and ICBC claims.
After several years, Eric partnered with Wes Mussio to form the law firm Mussio Goodman. Since that time, Eric acts solely on behalf of injured clients, with a proven track record of success in negotiations, mediations and, if a fair settlement could not be reached, the Supreme Court.
As a member of the Trial Lawyers Association of BC, Eric represents injured plaintiffs in a broad array of personal injury and ICBC claims. His extensive courtroom experience includes conducting both judge and jury trials in the Supreme Court of British Columbia, as well as appearing in the BC Court of the Appeal.
Eric is also a member of the Canadian Bar Association, Vancouver Bar Association, Spinal Cord Injury BC, the BC Brain Injury Association, and proudly serves as a Mentor as part of the CBA Mentorship Program.
Eric recognizes that a truly successful result requires a genuine understanding of a client’s particular needs. The result is an unwavering focus on advocacy and client service that sets our firm apart.
Eric is particularly proud of his most recent success at trial, where the Court awarded his client $2.2 million dollars, more than five times what ICBC offered to settle. You can read more about Eric’s recent trial decision here. It is also noteworthy that ICBC appealed this decision to the BC Court of Appeal in an attempt to reduce the award by almost $300,000. Eric fought the appeal and was ultimately successful in keeping his client’s award intact.
