About The Mayer Group

Eric L. Mayer

Military Lawyer Eric MayerAfter graduating from the United States Military Academy in 1996, Eric became an Infantry Officer, eventually stationed at Fort Drum, New York. From there, he deployed to both Saudi Arabia and Bosnia-Herzegovina (SFOR6).
After 5 years as an Infantry Officer, Eric left the Army to attend law school at the University of Kansas.  Upon graduation and passing the bar exam, he entered the Army JAG Corps.

Following JAG assignments at Ft. Polk, Louisiana and Ft. Leonard Wood, Missouri, he decided to leave the Army at the rank of Major and continue defending veterans across the armed forces.
