Eric Lemberg, Esq.

Associate Attorney

Mr. Lemberg arrived in Chicago with his family in 1992 from Odesa, Ukraine and speaks fluent Russian. He attended John Hersey High School in Arlington Heights where he developed an interest in pursuing a legal career. As a young student, he gravitated toward history and had an aptitude for writing and civics courses.

Mr. Lemberg majored in history at Loyola University Chicago where he earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree. After graduating, he worked as an Account Manager at a precious metals refinery while studying for the law school entrance exam. In 2017, he received a scholarship to attend Loyola University Chicago School of Law, earning a tax certificate in his third year.

Mr. Lemberg’s introduction to legal work began his first summer of law school as a clerk for a class action law firm in the Chicago Loop. He worked with a team of clerks to help the firm manage the day-to-day operations in areas ranging from discovery to preparing courtroom exhibits to engaging in legal research. In his second year of law school, Mr. Lemberg represented the City of Chicago as a Supreme Court Rule 711-student prosecutor for the Department of Administrative Hearings – Municipal Prosecutions Division. There he dealt directly with the public, conducting ad hoc hearings and prosecuting non-criminal municipal offenses. In his third year, Mr. Lemberg discovered an enthusiastic interest in family law after he joined the Loyola University Chicago Veterans Practicum Clinic. The Veterans Practicum Clinic matches student-practitioners with low-income families and military veterans to assist them with their family law cases and domestic relations disputes.

Mr. Lemberg sat for the Illinois State Bar Exam in October, 2020 – the first remotely administered bar exam in the state’s history. He was licensed as an attorney by the Supreme Court of Illinois in January, 2021 and began his career as an Associate Attorney for a prominent family law firm handling divorce cases. Mr. Lemberg has now joined Erin Webster O’Brien, P.C. in May, 2022 as an Associate Attorney, taking the next step in his legal career.
