Lawyer Magazine featured attorney Brandon Erickson as a featured patriot on the Sacramento County Bar Association’s website.

In 1999, Erickson enlisted in the Army and then deployed to Iraq four years later for Operation Iraqi Freedom. After being seriously wounded in combat, he received the Purple Heart and Bronze Star with the “V” device for valor in combat.

After completing rehabilitation for his injuries, Erickson realized that he needed to take advantage of this second chance he was given at life. Through supporting various veterans causes and non-profit organizations, Erickson used his platform to speak on the unique issues that wounded veterans face, and how everyday Americans shouldn’t take their lives for granted. These veteran commitments included Operation Rebound, a non-profit that brings injured veterans back to a healthy and functioning lifestyle. He is also the chair of a scholarship committee for high school students who write essays on the importance of patriotism.

After being a Deputy District Attorney in El Dorado County, Erickson decided to open his own law firm, Erickson Law Offices P.C. in Gold River, California.
