Eric B. Gans

Eric B. Gans is a Santa Barbara-based attorney representing clients in family law and civil matters. Whether your case involves a divorce or children, personal or financial injuries, or a dispute with a business associate or neighbor, few people enjoy being caught up in the legal process, or anticipate the personal and financial costs they will be forced to bear. Emotions run high, and your days seem to fill up with stress, confusion, pain, and anger. Choosing a good lawyer to help you through this confusing maze of emotion and stress is crucial.

While no attorney can realistically promise you a particular result, Eric will provide you with a calm, reasoned analysis of your legal options, and strong, effective advocacy. Many legal matters can be resolved in a swift, cost-effective manner out of court, while others require decisive action through litigation. By developing an open and collaborative dialogue with his clients, Eric is able to identify your goals up front, clarify procedural steps and key case decision points, and devise a strategy with the goal of putting you in the position to make an informed decision at each stage of your case.

Eric’s practice covers primarily Santa Barbara and Ventura counties.
