Eric Matthews is a member of Brown & Fortunato’s Corporate Group, with a transactional practice that includes mergers and acquisitions, corporate governance, and real estate. He advises owners and executives at every phase of the business cycle, from formation to termination, and has experience handling a variety of equity and asset transactions, restructuring corporate entities, and negotiating various agreements with suppliers, vendors, and other third parties.

Eric is a member of the State Bar of Texas, the Amarillo Area Bar Association, and the Amarillo Young Lawyers Association. Eric was selected by Thomson Reuters as a Super Lawyers Rising Star in the State of Texas for 2023 and 2024, a distinction awarded to only 2.5% of eligible attorneys. He earned both his Bachelor of Business Administration and Juris Doctor, magna cum laude, from Texas Tech University. During his undergraduate studies, Eric formed and operated two companies, a recycling business and landscape design business, both of which he later sold. While in law school, Eric was a member of the Texas Tech Law Review.

Perhaps the most valuable work Eric does is halfway around the world. Eric and his wife, Kimberly, founded and operate 25:35 Water, a 501(c)(3) organization, drilling water wells and providing food and medical supplies to impoverished areas of Uganda, Africa. Since its inception in 2016, 25:35 Water has drilled more than 70 water wells across Uganda.

Eric is an avid traveler and backpacker, below average CrossFitter, and, perhaps unfortunately, lifelong Dallas Cowboys fan. Eric and Kimberly spend most of their time wrangling their three kids: Layla, RJ, and Sunny.
