After 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, Mr. Mayer left the Army to attend law school at the University of Kansas. From a couch in the lobby of the school, he observed the televised horror of 9/11 and decided to reenter the Army JAG Corps at the completion of his legal studies.
Following JAG assignments at Ft. Polk, Louisiana and Ft. Leonard Wood, Missouri, he decided to leave the Army as a Major and continue defending uniformed servicemembers across the armed forces.
Now, he owns and manages The Mayer Law Office. It is a great place to work, as long as his orders are followed quickly and precisely.
