His experience managing and prosecuting a large and diverse docket of cases through all phases of discovery, trial and appeal provided the type of large law firm experience needed by many of his corporate clients. That experience, coupled with his tenure as a briefing attorney at the Texas Supreme Court, has prepared him to obtain successful trial verdicts, appeals and settlements for a broad range of clients in a variety of industries.

Mr. Storm has also promoted his clients’ interests in administrative proceedings before the Texas Comptroller, the Texas Railroad Commission, the Texas Public Utilities Commission, and county appraisal-review boards.

Eric now brings that large-firm experience to his own practice. The Storm Law firm represents appellants, plaintiffs and defendants in all types of commercial litigation matters in state and federal courts at every level.  Eric has and continues to successfully handle cases across a broad spectrum of business and law.

Mr. Storm received his law degree in 2001 from the University of Texas School of Law, where he served as an articles editor on the Texas Law Review. Following graduation, he was a briefing attorney at the Texas Supreme Court for now-Chief Justice Wallace B. Jefferson and then joined Bracewell & Giuliani LLP’s litigation team.
