Prior to joining our San Luis Obispo office as a Paralegal in 2018, Eric Wooten spent three years providing paralegal support at a local San Luis Obispo employment law firm. His cases included class and representative actions involving Labor Code and health and safety violations under the Private Attorneys General Act.
Mr. Wooten was raised on the Central Coast, but also lived in Sacramento for 13 years, where he worked as a political consultant and lobbyist for various associations. In addition, he has represented organizations before various commissions, boards and the State Legislature.
Prior to his career in politics, Mr. Wooten provided public relations services to Fortune 500 companies like Oracle, Coca Cola and Union Bank. He also managed a small manufacturer that sold to national retailers like Wal-Mart.
Mr. Wooten graduated Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from Oregon State University. He earned his paralegal certification at Cuesta College, in San Luis Obispo.
When he is not working, he enjoys hiking, fishing, and trips to the beach with his family. He lives in Atascadero, but longs for the foggy summers of his youth in Morro Bay.
