Jeffrey R. Erickson joined the firm in October 2012. His practice is dedicated to plaintiffs in medical malpractice, insurance coverage, premises liability, civil litigation, and personal injury matters.
Prior to joining the firm, Mr. Erickson spent twenty-two years as a member of Lafollette, Johnson, Dehaas, Fesler & Ames (sixteen years as a partner and eleven years as the managing partner of the Inland Empire office in Riverside), where his practice was wholly dedicated to the defense of physicians in medical malpractice actions. During his tenure at Lafollette, Mr. Erickson developed a strong reputation as an effective trial lawyer and an ethical member of the legal community. He has successfully defended physicians in more than one hundred trials and arbitrations, and has successfully resolved hundreds more in settlement on behalf of hospitals and physicians throughout California. Having represented physicians for more than two decades, Mr. Erickson is an invaluable asset to the firm and the clients we serve. He understands how defense attorneys and insurance carriers prepare and defend their cases, and the limitations they face.
Mr. Erickson was born and raised in Alberta, Canada. His love of golf eventually overcame his love of hockey, so today, he finds himself enamored with life in sunny southern California. He is an active member of the Mormon community and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Redlands, and he considers his faith and his family to be the cornerstones of his life. He lives in Yucaipa with his wife of over thirty years, Diane, and they enjoy spending time with their children, Andrew, Melissa, Kasey, Spencer, and Mckenna.
