After an externship with the Honorable Anthony J. Battaglia and working as a certified legal intern at San Diego County's Office of the District Attorney, Eric M. Clarkson has joined SDV's West Coast office.

Eric brings a wealth of experience to the risk transfer and litigation teams at SDV. Having worked on complex civil disputes for state and federal courts, Eric has a keen perspective on how disputes may ultimately resolve and why. This is augmented by his experience working closely with the District Attorney's office through delicate and complicated trials covering a variety of felony offenses. With an informed eye toward trial, Eric is readily capable of parsing coverage issues for clients and providing comprehensive analyses of their potential for recovery or risk transfer. Eric's background has equipped him with the skills and experience to vigorously advocate for the rights of policyholders in court and hold insurers accountable.

A California native, from the San Francisco Bay area, Eric is fond of jazz and classical music. In his spare time, he enjoys trail running, cycling, and back country camping.
