Eric W. Dickey focuses his practice of law on representing first party property policyholders engaged in disputes with their insurance companies. Eric’s experience in this area comes from years of defending insurance companies in first party coverage disputes and “bad faith” claims. His previous work includes both representing these insurance companies and serving as a prosecutor. He now solely represents policyholders, with a particular emphasis on catastrophic commercial claims.
As a trial attorney, Eric has tried more than 50 jury trials and several hundred non-jury trials over his career of both civil and criminal cases. He is a passionate advocate who believes success in the courtroom comes from thoroughly preparing the case outside of the courtroom.
Eric is a graduate of Florida State University’s College of Law, where he graduated in 2001 with Honors. During law school, he was an executive board member of the competitive trial team, represented the university in numerous state and national competitions, was recognized for his pro bono service, and served as the Dean’s hand-picked research assistant.
When not advocating for his clients, he enjoys spending time raising and training guide dogs for Southeast Guide Dogs, practicing mixed martial arts, and regularly exercising the privileges of his pilot’s license.
