W. Eric Medlin
Attorney at Law
I had the great opportunity to be raised in a U.S. Navy family then attend the University of Florida (B.S. in Geology, 1980) and University of Wyoming (M.S. in Geology/Geophysics, 1983). After working in the environmental consulting industry, I earned my law degree from the University of Pittsburgh (1993) and worked as a project manager for several environmental remediation companies.
In 1997, my family and I moved from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to Greensboro, North Carolina and I later became the in-house counsel for another environmental remediation company. In 2002, another talented attorney and I started a law firm that thrived for ten years.
Besides practicing business law with the Medlin Law Firm, PC, I also volunteer as a swim instructor and try to keep up with my age group in triathlons.
I was born in Cali, Colombia and spent my early years surrounded by a loving family and friends in beautiful South America. With my family, I had the opportunity to live in Florida, New York, and then Massachusetts.
While I was working towards a degree in Criminal Justice, I worked for several different types of businesses in the northeastern United States including law offices and a bankruptcy trustee. To me, one of the most important jobs I’ve had is working with school children going through criminal proceedings such as gang involvement and drug violations.
In 2014, I moved to North Carolina and am enjoying the people and natural beauty. When I’m not working as the Office Manager for Medlin Law Firm, PC, I enjoy spending time with my family, cooking, reading, and speed sports.
