I SNOWBOARD. I KNOW WHAT IT MEANS TO BE INJURED.
I am Eric Gruber, the founder of Gruber Law Group. I am an avid snowboarder who has experienced my share of injury, mostly self-inflicted. I understand the impact and toll injuries can take on your life and do my best to use that experience to provide you with the type of zealous advocacy you can only get from someone who has “been there” and can see things from your shoes. I know what it’s like to be hobbled by crutches and have been whiplashed so bad I understand what my clients mean when they say “it is hard to brush my teeth in the morning and get dressed.” Trust me. I’ve been there.
PERSONAL INJURY LAW IS ABOUT HELPING PEOPLE
At the beginning of law school, the Dean at U.C. Hastings gave a speech, telling all of the new students in the auditorium to re-read our personal statements once we became lawyers. We wrote these personal statements expressing why we wanted to go to law school and mine, like most of these statements, was filled with ideas about helping people and “making a difference.” I reread my personal statement years later and, unlike most new lawyers, I stuck to my guns and continued to follow my passion for representing regular, everyday people, not insurance companies and big corporations with big paychecks.
I became a lawyer to help people, just like me, and I truly care about my clients. Without a doubt, it is the sincere appreciation and gratitude my former clients have for me that continues to fuel my advocacy on behalf of all my current and future clients.
EFFECTIVE ADVOCACY IS ABOUT BUILDING BONDS AND TRUST, NOT JUST ATTORNEY EXPERIENCE
During my last trial, which involved a relatively minor injury resulting from a rear-end car collision, my client leaned over to me after I delivered the closing argument and whispered, “ERIC! You’re a MONSTER.” My client and I worked up the case together, collaboratively, which allowed me to make the best case possible for him. We developed a personal bond, something that comes naturally to me, and the end result was a level of trust and mutual respect that allowed us to make the very best of a very difficult case. We have remained friends to this day, cementing my belief that effective advocacy is built on the bond between me and you, not just my experience.
WHEN I’M NOT BEING A LAWYER
I spend my free time snowboarding, cycling, and participating in the North Beach neighborhood of San Francisco, where both my home and office are located. I enjoy as many trips to Minnesota as I can, to visit my father, brother, sister-in-law, and my nephew. I am an active member of my community and take interest in public affairs. I spend a good chunk of my daily free time reading current events. I co-founded and currently sit on the Board of Directors of Attorneys Bettering the Community (ABC), a non-profit organization dedicated to developing and coordinating group volunteer projects in the San Francisco Bay Area.
I graduated from the University of California, Hastings College of the Law with a Public Interest Concentration. While at Hastings, I earned several CALI awards and excelled in my trial advocacy coursework. I graduated magna cum laude from Hamline University in St. Paul, Minnesota with a double major in Political Science and Sociology.
The Gruber Law Group did an exceptional job in assisting me with a personal injury case. Eric was very responsive to all of my calls and e-mails, and was clearly committed to ensuring that I got the best settlement possible. I can't say enough good things about my experience with this office, and I would not hesitate to refer friends and family to this law practice in the fu...

Gruber Law has been an unbelievable asset to my company. Impressed by the amount of service that has been provided to us from the firm. With out a doubt one of the best decisions we have made was teaming up with Gruber Law Group. We feel confident with the council we get from them. Highly recommend.Colin S.
I was injured in a car accident 2 years ago and Gruber Law Group represented and won my case! I had a lot of lawyers to choose from for my personal injury case, but I chose Eric and it made a difference! Eric made the process so easy and stress-free for me, which I was so grateful for at the time since I had to deal with my physical therapy and recovery process. Being injure...

In looking for legal advice and/or representation, I would expect to find someone knowledgeable and professional, and I certainly get that with Gruber Law Group. But what has stood out to me, and kept me coming back, is that Eric and GLG are also passionate advocates for their clients and really take the time to understand the situation and explain 'how things work' so the e...

Can't say enough good things. Eric promptly returned my phone calls and emails, gave me an honest assessment of my situation and a fair recommendation on course of action to take. He was very knowledgable and made sure to go out of his way to let me know how he could work with me. No one wants to need a lawyer, but if you're in need of consultation on an employment related-m...

I feel so grateful to have Eric represent my auto accident cases. I am very happy with the settlements he successfully negotiated for me; indeed, the amount of money that I received is more than what I expected. My personal injury cases were a little complicated. I had two car accidents in a row within two months, both at the other party's fault. The first one was a tailg...

I cannot thank Eric Gruber enough! After calling several law firms regarding my car accident, Eric was the most helpful. I called him after work hours but he still took my call and gave me advice right away. What a nice surprise that he even did more research and emailed me more information on my car accident claim. With his help, I am satisfied with my settlement. Justice h...

I'm relatively new to the US and wanted a little legal advice - I was very lucky to stumble across Gruber Law Group. The service I received was personalised, friendly and efficient (much appreciated! I'm a get-in-and-get-out kind of person when it comes to this kind of thing). The feeling that I could approach my lawyer as an equal, speak frankly and come away secure in the ...

At the end of 2013, I was involved in a three-car accident while stopped at a red light. An SUV hit the car behind me and the force of the collision drove that car into mine. My car was damaged a bit, but I suffered some whiplash and headaches for which I went to Stanford Hospital to get checked out. Fortunately, I had insurance which covered most of the hospital visit but I...
