Eric Doolittle joined Appelman Law Firm as an Associate Attorney in February 2018. He graduated from Hamline University School of Law with Honors in 2012. While in law school, Eric competed in National Mock Trial competitions and won two CALI awards in the Mediation and Trial Advocacy categories. During law school he worked as a law clerk for the Washington County Public Defender’s Office for two years before shifting to work for the Carver County Attorney’s office for a year.
Eric then passed the Minnesota State Bar Exam in May of 2013 and accepted a role as an Assistant Carver County Attorney. While working for Carver County, Eric worked as a felony prosecutor and earned extensive litigation and trial experience with a focus on domestic assault, drugs, theft and DUIs. Few people are better suited to defend you against these charges than someone who previously worked to earn convictions against these charges – He knows how the prosecution will attack your case and how best to defend you against the charges.
Eric opened his own practice – The Law Office of Eric E. Doolittle – in July of 2016 before accepting a role at Appelman Law Firm in February of 2018. Prior to jumping into the legal world, Eric had his sights set on helping the public in other ways by working as an educator for teens and adolescents. He has previous work experience as both a history teacher and a program director who helped counsel troubled youths. Eric describes his legal approach as holistic in nature, preferring to understand the full breadth of what each client needs in order to best serve their legal and personal needs.
On a personal level, Eric is the rare single father who raised his daughter Violet on his own. When he’s not putting together a strong legal defense, you can find Eric cheering on the Vikings or on one of Minnesota’s many hiking trails, although his favorite is the Superior Hiking Trail in North Shore.
