Senior Partner


Kessler Law Group was founded by Eric W. Kessler in 1983 when he graduated cum laude from Arizona State University Law School.

Eric initially focused his practice on civil, criminal, family, and juvenile court matters. He was also experienced in the niche practice of tax lien foreclosures, having clerked for several firms that represented tax lien investors.

Mr. Kessler quickly became known throughout the country as one of the most knowledgeable and experienced tax lien attorneys in Arizona. His client base expanded to national equity firms that invest in Arizona tax liens. Currently, Kessler Law Group processes more tax liens each year than any other law firm in Arizona. The firm is a member of the National Tax Lien Association.

Eric also found success in criminal law, which lead to his certification in 1995 by the Arizona Supreme Court as qualified lead counsel in death penalty cases. He was also chosen to be one of the few lead attorneys for capital cases in Maricopa County by the Maricopa County Capital Representation Committee.

Eric has also expanded his criminal practice to include white collar and other serious criminal defense cases, both in state and federal court. Mr. Kessler currently practices in the following areas: serious crimes defense work, tax lien foreclosures, family law, and civil litigation.
