Eric M. Helman, Esq.
Eric M. Helman focuses his practice on consumer protection, consumer fraud litigation, and contracts. Eric represents New Jersey consumers on a wide-variety of matters including everything from small over-the-counter purchases costing several dollars to contracts for the purchase or sale of real estate or other assets costing hundreds of thousands of dollars. Eric is licensed to practice in New York and New Jersey. Eric graduated from Rutgers University and the Rutgers Business School in New Brunswick, NJ with a BS in Finance. Eric then received his JD from the New England School of Law in Boston, MA where he was an editor of the New England Law Review and had a comment published that analyzed First Amendment jurisprudence in the public school context. See Comment: Borden v. East Brunswick School District: Clarifying First Amendment Jurisprudence in the Public School Context, 42 New Eng. Law Review 363 (2008).
After graduating from law school, Eric served a one-year judicial clerkship for the Honorable Jamie D. Happas in the Middlesex County Court House. During this term, Judge Happas was one of only four designated mass tort judges in the State of New Jersey. After completing his clerkship, Eric worked as an associate for several private law firms in New Jersey including an international litigation firm. During this time, Eric represented some of the largest corporations in the world involved in complex litigation. Ultimately, Eric became dissatisfied in this role and decided to take the big firm experience he gained to begin his own practice where he would be able to focus on helping New Jersey consumers. Now, Eric uses this experience every single day to deliver results for his clients. Eric is a lifelong resident of Central New Jersey and currently resides in Monmouth County.
