Big Law. Small Firm. Real People.

Practicing law in Virginia since 1996, Eric formed Perkins Law, PLLC in March 2009 after practicing with a downtown law firm for 12 years and almost a year as in-house corporate counsel for a local real estate company.  Perkins Law’s mission is to fill the void between “Big Law” and the LegalZooms of the world.

Proudly serving the Virginia small business and nonprofit communities with his unique combination of professional and pragmatic guidance, Eric is pleased to offer many services on a flat-fee basis.
