    Attorney Profile

    Attorney Eric Hageman is a partner with the Pritzker Hageman, P.A., law firm in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Nationally regarded as one of the preeminent trial lawyers in the country, Mr. Hageman has nearly 25 years of legal experience, and he advocates on behalf of plaintiff clients across the United States who have suffered catastrophic injuries or lost loved ones as the result of someone else's negligence or wrongdoing.

    During the course of his legal career, Mr. Hageman has achieved significant success fighting for the rights and entitlements of accident victims and their families. Among his most notable successes, he recovered more than $45 million for a burn victim and he has obtained verdicts or settlements in excess of $10 million on three other occasions.

    Having grown up participating in his family's business, he learned the virtues of hard work, determination and superior customer service, and he employs these virtues in every case he handles to ensure his clients receive the highest level of representation and support. He has gained a reputation as a tireless advocate for those in need, and he maintains an unwavering focus on helping those who would otherwise have little to no recourse for their serious legal challenges.

    Honored for his success and his outstanding professionalism and service, Mr. Hageman has earned consistent recognition from his peers as being among the top attorneys in his area, including an AV-Preeminent peer-review rating* from Martindale-Hubbell. On two separate occasions, he has won the "Attorney of the Year" award from Minnesota Lawyer magazine. In addition, the National Academy of Personal Injury Attorneys named him as one of the Top Ten Personal Injury Attorneys in Minnesota, and the American Society of Legal Advocates voted him among the Top 100 litigation attorneys in Minnesota. 

    A 1990 graduate of Dartmouth College, Mr. Hageman obtained his Juris Doctor from the University of Minnesota Law School in 1995. He is admitted to practice before various federal district courts as well as the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th, 7th, 8th and 9th Circuits. He is also an active member of the American Association for Justice's Truck Litigation Group among his other professional affiliations.
