Eric Backstrom

Eric began his life with his wife, Jessica, as a law student. Not quite knowing which direction he wanted to take after law school, a pow-wow with Jessica and his family bloomed into a job as a JAG in the air force. After law school, he was stationed in Montana, where the winters were a big contrast to the weather the native Arkansan experienced in Little Rock.

After discharge from the military and some time reconnecting with his family in Little Rock, Eric joined our firm at Christmas Time in 2011.  He is passionate about helping people and loves that the law allows him to do just that.

After discharge from the military, Eric and his wife settled into life in NW Arkansas where they enjoy family gatherings with extended family. Life is relaxed and casual with lots of time for enjoying movies, walking and talking together. Their second child is due in the winter of 2016 and each day is new as they anticipate the changes in their family.

Eric loves ultimate Frisbee and softball. And he will tell all who listen that Texas Hold ‘Em is the Best. Game. Ever.
