Erick attained a Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Laws double degree from Western Sydney University (formerly University of Western Sydney) and a Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice from the Australian National University.
While undertaking his studies, Erick worked for a community legal centre which gave him experience in dealing with clients from different backgrounds. This experience was invaluable in developing Erick’s approach as a lawyer who always deals with each of his clients with empathy and respect.
In his last year of university, Erick participated in a university competition the Philip C.

This experience contributed to Erick’s keen awareness and ability as an advocate for his clients who always strives to achieve the best possible outcome on their behalf.
Prior to joining Stacks Goudkamp in September 2015, Erick worked for another personal injury law firm and also undertook an internship with the State Insurance Regulatory Authority (formerly the Motor Accidents Authority). Erick’s experience in these previous roles developed his keen interest in compensation matters and particularly motor vehicle accident claims.
