Eric James possesses a lifelong commitment to service in his community, having served in a number of different roles within the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office (LCSO) during his 16-year tenure.  He determined early in that career that he wanted to pursue positive change in the legal profession and pivoted to attend law school.  Eric’s path has been non-traditional producing what clients feel is a grounded and well-rounded approach to the law.

As a stalwart believer in the rights of the people, he served as a decorated Deputy and Corporal at LCSO.  During this time, he also served as an Adjunct Professor at a police academy where he instructed on a variety of legal subjects. Eric holds himself to the highest level of ethical standards building trust with the individuals and businesses that he helps.

Eric graduated from the University of South Dakota Knudsen School of Law in 2000 and subsequently served as Deputy District Attorney in the 8th Judicial District in Fort Collins, Colorado.  In 2005 Eric left the District Attorney’s Office to pursue the opportunity to serve clients with a wide range of needs at Hamilton Faatz & Waller, PC as well as Elkus Sisson & Rosenstein, PC, both out of the Denver Metro area.

Eric brings to Miller & Steiert experience in Family Law, including divorces and complex adoptions, Employment Law, Estate Planning, EEO, ADA, Title VII, Colorado Wage Act, FLSA compliance and administrative proceedings as well as Real Estate, Commercial and Criminal representation in felony, misdemeanor, and DUI defense.

Eric will be assisting clients across the State of Colorado, bringing a focus on a Northern Colorado presence for Miller & Steiert.  He enjoys camping and outdoor recreation with his wife, Cyndy as well as his daughters Mica & Eliza and step-daughters Brittney & Jacquelyn.
