Eric Hagen became an attorney to continue his service to others. Before attending law school, he was an adjutant officer in the United State Marine Corps, overseeing battalion legal administration. Eric was one of only 60 Veterans nationwide, and the first in Nebraska, to receive the Pat Tillman Foundation scholarship, which is awarded annually to recognize service members, Veterans, and military spouses who show a commitment to service, scholarship, and leadership.
As a volunteer with the Veterans Legal Support Network, Eric advocates to protect the military benefits of our nations’ servicemen and women. He stands behind the oath he took to defend the Constitution in his work as a Criminal defense attorney, personal injury, litigation and Veteran’s benefits advocate at Berry Law.
“The team at Berry Law has a strong commitment to defending the Constitution, which I swore to uphold as a United States Marine. That’s why I feel very comfortable here. It’s a familiar culture.”
Eric’s commitment to military culture led him to serve as President of the Military Law Society at Creighton University, where he earned his Juris Doctor as well as a master’s degree in negotiation and conflict resolution.
He lives in Elkhorn with his three sons. In his free time, Eric coaches rugby and football, serves on the board of the Nebraska Youth Rugby Association, and volunteers with Citylight Church and with Fathers for a Lifetime.Work with Eric
