Background

Eric practices in all areas of personal injury law, including wrongful death, car accident, premises liability, product liability, professional negligence and workers’ compensation cases. Eric is licensed to practice law in state and federal court in both Minnesota and Wisconsin.

Eric was born in Duluth, Minnesota. He grew up along the North Shore where he worked in his father's business until he graduated from the University of Minnesota-Duluth, magna cum laude.  He spent three years in the Twin Cities and graduated with honors from William Mitchell College of Law in St. Paul. Eric eagerly returned to Duluth upon graduating, and started his legal career in 1998. In 2003, Eric was named an "Up and Coming Attorney" by Minnesota Lawyer. This award was an honor bestowed upon a select group of attorneys who had distinguished themselves within their first 10 years of practice. Eric was named a 2019 Minnesota Super Lawyer honoree; Super Lawyer honorees are selected from an annual survey and the distinction is bestowed on less than 5% of Minnesota's practicing attorneys. Previously, Eric was also been recognized by Super Lawyer as a "Rising Star" honoree six times. After more than 18 years of legal practice in personal injury law with Falsani, Balmer, Peterson, Quinn & Beyer in Duluth, Eric joined SiebenCarey's Duluth office in December 2016.

As a life-long Duluthian, Eric finds the outdoors to be a perfect way to energize for his career as a litigator. When not advising and representing clients, he embraces all that makes the northland his home. He enjoys canoeing with his wife and kids, both on "the Big Lake" when the wind allows, and inland when his schedule does. He grouse hunts with his dog, and fishes for brookies, 'loopers' and steelhead near his home in the winter and spring. He still plays hockey, and he also makes time to curl as a member of both the Two Harbors and Duluth Curling Clubs.

I was involved in a car accident that was complicated at best. God blessed with me Eric Beyer as my attorney. Although it was a long drawn out process between the two insurance companies, Eric was not only my attorney, he was my rock.

Eric is one of the most ethical people I have ever met in my lifetime. He was a constant source of not only information, but of comfort throughout the whole process. I never doubted for one moment that Eric did not have my best interest at heart. He took every word I said seriously and did what he had to do. If I ever have the misfortune of another injury like this, I would go to no one other than Eric Beyer. I will never in my lifetime be able to thank Eric enough or let him know how much I respect him and what a comfort he was and has continued to be for me. God Bless you Eric Beyer.

Jeanne Tondryk

Eric W. Beyer helped me through a very difficult time and his professionalism, advice and results from an injury were highly respected. Amidst the personal part of getting myself back to health, his guidance when life was blurry was so appreciated. He listened and then put forth my options honestly and directly which I totally appreciated!

 was totally satisfied with his hard work and dedication to help me. I'd highly recommend him. Thank you Eric!

Richard Johnson

Brook Arseneau

Wonderful experience! I highly recommend Eric Beyer.

Sabrina Stauffer
Eric Beyer made what felt like a difficult process, very simple. If I didn’t have Eric’s help, I don’t know how I could’ve gotten the wage loss benefits due to me from my insurance company, because it was so slow in coming to me. Lots of runaround.

The security of having an attorney in your corner is powerful! Especially when the person  at fault for hitting me, that insurance company was calling me daily to check on me and “how are you doing?”  Their trick is to get you to say that you’re fine, but you don’t know how you are doing until at least a week after the crash. It takes time for the adrenaline to calm down before you realize how deeply hurt you really are. And by the time you could’ve told the insurance company multiple times that “I’m  fine” and the truth is - you’re not.

My advice is to get Eric immediately after an injury, and not to talk to the opposing insurance company (if it’s a car crash), and to document everything. Eric doesn’t charge you any money up front! But if you don’t get an attorney, it can cost you plenty in the end. Insurance companies are skilled at not paying, don’t be one of their victims.

Have to say, the great personal, professional, attention, I received from attorney, Eric Beyer. I would rate his expertise, 5 star.

Mike and Carol Anderson

Five stars to Eric and Rita!! After filing a work comp claim, being denied, and told from a medical professional that I had waited to long to file the claim I was feeling hopeless. I decided to meet with Eric and was informed about the Gillette law. I am so grateful to Eric for his knowledge, experience, guidance and compassion. Thank you to Rita for your calls, emails and for keeping me updated and informed!

In need of a personal injury attorney? Well you're if you're reading this you're in the right place. You'd be hard pressed to find more competent attorneys than the ones here at SiebenCarey.

They took my case to trial and an amazing job presenting the facts and fighting for my best interests! Three years ago I was unsure of what my future would bring; now that it's over I can rest a bit easier. With SiebenCarey as my counsel, I believe I had the absolute BEST representation a person could've asked for. I knew that I wanted the absolute best representation when searching for an attorney to handle my case and I most definitely received it.

If you need a personal injury attorney, look no further. Can't recommend highly enough.

My boyfriend was hit by a car and while all the attorneys he talked to said he didn't have much chance of a case, SiebenCarey took him on and gave him a fighting chance. He's still recovering, but SiebenCarey is making it a lot easier.
