Erik D. Hyam
Erik grew up immersed in the family businesses from hospitality to agriculture, and from there grew a passion for business and learning. He is a native of Litchfield, Illinois, and the seventh generation of his family to call Montgomery County home. A graduate of Litchfield High School, Erik received his undergraduate degrees in Accounting and Finance from Loyola University Chicago. During his undergraduate studies and prior to attending law school, Erik worked in the corporate offices of Hyatt Hotels. There he was involved in building the brand’s first foray into the limited service market, Hyatt Place.

A dedicated lifelong learner, Erik decided to return to the classroom and pursue something he had thought about since he was a child - becoming a lawyer. Erik received his Juris Doctor, cum laude, from The John Marshall Law School in Chicago, Illinois. While in law school, Erik clerked for the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office, where he spent time employed as an assistant state’s attorney after law school. In the fast paced, high volume office he developed his love of the courtroom. Having tried numerous criminal cases, felony and misdemeanor, before judges and juries, Erik’s experience adds an additional dimension to the firm’s practice. Erik is actively involved in a number of practice areas, focusing mainly in litigation, real estate and succession planning.

Erik lives in Litchfield with his wife and their son. He is a lifelong member of Zion Lutheran Church and is very active in his community. He is a former candidate for Montgomery County State’s Attorney.
