Personal Experience


ERIK G. ABRAHAMSON

With over twenty five (25) years of experience in personal injury law, Mr. Abrahamson embraces the practice of working with clients on a contingency basis.

“I have been given the honor and pleasure of representing the injured for over 25 years. A system of hiring an attorney on an hourly basis rewards inefficiency, creates delays and commonly creates negative issues between the lawyer and the client. Representing clients on a contingency basis in which we (the law firm) earn a percentage of the settlement, however, is much more rewarding for the client and us (the attorneys). We have a common goal: to obtain the maximum recovery for the client. If there is no financial recovery (i.e. settlement or jury verdict), the client owes us nothing. It's that simple.”  

A native of the Midwest, Mr. Abrahamson still preserves his hard working Midwestern values as a founding partner of Abrahamson & Uiterwyk. He graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree from Luther College in 1984 before earning his J.D. (Doctorate of Jurisprudence) from Stetson University College of Law in 1987. Stetson is consistently ranked as one of the best law schools in the nation for trial advocacy. Mr. Abrahamson also studied law in Bordeaux, France and Oxford, England. While attending law school, Mr. Abrahamson was selected to be on Stetson's prestigious Moot Court Team. While on the Moot Court he was actively involved in competitions that tested his advocacy skills. He was honored by taking first place in the Stetson National Moot Court Competition and second place in the Stetson National Appellate Brief Competition.

Mr. Abrahamson began his career working as a law clerk for various law firms while studying at Stetson University. Following law school, Mr. Abrahamson practiced with the litigation firm of Park, Smith, Dayton, and Bugg, P.A. In 1989, he formed his own law firm with an emphasis in representing injured victims.

Mr. Abrahamson is admitted to practice law in the state courts of Florida and Colorado, and in the United States District Court, The United States Court of Appeals, and the United States Supreme Court. Mr. Abrahamson holds memberships in the Clearwater Bar Association; the Florida Bar, The Florida Justice Association and the American Association for Justice Education. Additionally, Mr. Abrahamson has served as a Director for the Young Lawyers Section of the Clearwater Bar Association. He has also served as a hearing officer for the Pinellas County School Board and spoken on various legal topics at local colleges, on radio, and on television.

Mr. Abrahamson practices personal injury law from and manages the firm’s Clearwater office. In the years since his graduation from law school, he has maintained an affiliation with his alma mater, coordinating the firm’s sponsorship of a variety of activities at Stetson University College of Law. Abrahamson & Uiterwyk has also sponsored the Pre-Law Society at the University of South Florida.

Believing that maintaining his physical health and condition enhances his mental sharpness, Mr. Abrahamson maintains an active lifestyle, spending weekends in Anna Maria Island and Homosassa or traveling to Colorado, where he enjoys outdoor sports and skiing in the winter months and hiking and biking in warmer weather. He also escapes to the mountains of North Carolina, works out with weights and jogs with his loyal companion, a Golden Retriever named “Polar.”

If you have unexpectedly become the victim of an injury or accident that requires the services of a personal injury attorney, you need a qualified and competent representative who is not only highly experienced in this area of law, but also has developed an extraordinary compassion for the physical, emotional and financial pain of the injured. Erik G. Abrahamson responds to this demanding challenge.

“In my practice, I have discovered firsthand that it is mandatory for personal injury clients to work with experienced attorneys and a financially stable law firm to successfully counter the tactics of insurance companies that attempt to minimize compensation for the injured. Nearly twenty five years ago, I personally experienced the pain and health issues associated with being involved in an accident when I became the victim of a negligent driver and sustained herniated disks in my neck and lower back.”
