Eric Staton

Eric Staton lived in Illinois until he was in the second grade, then in Spring , Texas, until his junior year in high school. His family moved to Littleton, Colorado in 1990, where he finished high school at Heritage High School.

After high school, Eric studied English and Philosophy in Regis University, so the practice of Law appealed to him because he wanted a career that utilized his strengths in writing and analytical thinking. Eric studied Law at Rutgers School of Law.

Eric was mentored in the area of workers’ compensation by one of the best lawyers who ever practiced in that area in Colorado, and he focuses his legal practice primarily on workers’ compensation claims, wrongful death claims, and injury claims of all types.

Eric Staton has been a licensed Colorado lawyer for fifteen (15) years, and has been with the Mintz Law Firm, LLC since March 2005 as a personal injury lawyer.

Outside of the office, Eric enjoys spending time with friends and family, going to the theater, and playing inline hockey.
