Eric M. Butterworth

Mr. Butterworth has practiced law since 1984. He received his Bachelor of Arts degree in English from Brigham Young University in 1982. He lived in Spokane, Washington with his wife and young family from 1981 until 1987, graduating from Gonzaga University’s School of Law with a Juris Doctorate degree in 1984. While in Spokane, he practiced in a law firm focusing on real estate and securities law. In 1987, he and his family moved to Kennewick and opened a solo practice with an emphasis in real estate law. He continued his successful practice with the Kennewick office of the well-respected Paine Hamblen law firm from 1999 until 2003 and then took a position with his wife’s family-owned real estate construction, development and management company. There he broadened his real estate experience by focusing on its business and operations aspects. He returned to his solo law practice in 2006. In March 2016, he began a one year sabbatical to serve with his wife on a mission with his church. He returned to practice with the firm in March 2017.
