Eric Gibbs has spent his career diligently defending Insureds against personal injury, property damage, dram shop, motor vehicle, contractual and employment litigation claims.  Eric has effectively defended clients to no cause arbitration verdicts, successful motions for summary judgment and reversals in the Insured’s favor on appeal.  Eric has also regularly sat as an Arbitrator in Philadelphia, which gives him additional knowledge into different methods of defending clients and insight into what does and does not work when presenting a defense.


Before starting his legal career, Eric worked in marketing in Phoenix, Arizona. Desiring a career change and to move to the East Coast, Eric was drawn to Philadelphia and chose to attend Rutgers-Camden School of Law despite similar opportunities in New York and Chicago.  While at Rutgers School of Law, Eric worked with the Children’s Justice Clinic to defend disadvantaged youths charged with serious criminal offenses.  Eric also volunteered with the bankruptcy pro bono project and was the first Publication Editor for the prestigious Rutgers Law Journal.


When he is not vigorously advocating on behalf of his clients, Eric spends his time golfing, travelling and spending summers down the shore in Ocean City with his wife.
