Eric H. Clayman, P.A.
24/7 Criminal Defense Law Firm
Eric Clayman received his Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice from Eastern Michigan University. While attending Eastern Michigan University he graduated from the Washtenaw County Police Academy where he graduated with top honors in marksmanship, physical fitness and defensive driving tactics. Mr. Clayman worked as a certified police officer in Hamtramck, Michigan, which is inside the City of Detroit Proper. While employed as an officer, he worked as a DUI Investigator, Narcotics Investigator, served high risk felony arrest and search warrants and handled Auto Theft Investigations. Mr. Clayman has extensive experience and training in handling DUI’s properly, indications of impairment and how to property conduct these investigations. He has extensive continuing education and field experience in narcotics and vice interdiction. His law enforcement experience is something that the vast majority of other criminal defense attorneys simply don’t have. Police officers tend to not get along with defense attorneys. Due to his background, Mr. Clayman has relationships with police departments throughout southern Florida and these relationships tend to lend themselves favorably to his clients.
Mr. Clayman obtained his Juris Doctorate from St. Thomas University School of Law in Miami, Florida. Mr. Clayman is admitted to both the Florida Bar and to the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida.
Mr. Clayman started his career while in law school as a Certified Legal Intern (CLI) for the Broward County State Attorney’s Office. Upon graduating from law school he worked for the Broward County Public Defender’s Officer. Subsequent to the PD, he worked for the Office of the Criminal Conflict and Civil Regional Counsel for the Fourth District handling two Broward County Felony Courtrooms, Drug Court, Misdemeanor Domestic Violence and Mental Health Court. Shortly thereafter, Mr. Clayman started his own legal practice where he focuses on high level communication with clients and zealous advocacy on their behalf.
Mr. Clayman has successfully represented individuals on charges ranging from low level second degree misdemeanors up to capital offenses such as human trafficking and murder. He has developed a reputation for operating ethically while aggressively defending the interests of his clients. He is a lawyer who loves to work. This consists of filing motion after motion once engaged in the discovery process seeking out any issue that will help weaken the State’s case. This is done for the sole purpose of having charges dismissed, having charges changed to lesser offenses that are far less severe and to put his clients in the best possible position.
