Eric Gilman has been recognized as one of the "40 under Forty" by the Business Examiner Media Group

Gordon Thomas Honeywell LLP, July 2016

Eric Gilman describes himself as a”K-JD” lawyer, meaning that he knew early on that he wanted to be an officer of the court.

His family arrived from Japan when he was two years old, so he often had occasions where he “felt different” from the other children around him. He believes that experience helped him to become who he is, and “when you’re a little different, empathy comes more easily.”

The first in his family to attend law school, Gilman is setting a trail for others to follow as president of Tacoma-Pierce County Bar Foundation, co-chair of the local Campaign for Equal Justice and a pro bono attorney at Volunteer Legal Services.

“There is no greater rush than standing in front of a judge or jury and advocating for a just cause. What a thrill,” he says. A partner at Tacoma’s legal giant Gordon Thomas Honeywell, Eric Gilman is also honored in 2016 “40 Under Forty.”
