Prior to joining the Lamb Hanson Lamb team in 2012, Eric conducted domestic and international appraisals of real property and infrastructure, and earned a degree in Political Science from the University of Washington.

A Marriage Dissolution Appraisal becomes essential when the unthinkable becomes reality. For the couple facing a severing of legal ties, a Marriage Dissolution Appraisal determines the fair market value of shared real property in an unbiased fashion. In many instances, the family home is the most valuable asset two people will own; an asset that can be heavily contested over value and allocation. Eric is proud of Lamb Hanson Lamb’s intellectual capital, depth of analysis, and proven success in court cases where Marriage Dissolution Appraisals are often relied upon as the sole document by which a jury reaches a verdict. “It needs to withstand legal scrutiny,” he explains. For these reasons, the team forgoes a template-based approach in favor of robust analysis in a narrative style report.
Marriage Dissolution Appraisal can also be a very sensitive process. This crucial valuation combined with the delicate nature of the situation appeal to Eric as a Lamb Hanson Lamb associate known for his rapport with clients. “You have to be able to proceed gingerly,” he says. Eric and the team extend ongoing consultation services as an added value. In that way, a Marriage Dissolution Appraisal and specialized support from Lamb Hanson Lamb provide clarity, credible results, and a sense of calm in the midst of a potential storm.
