CAMDEN — Penbay Estate Planning Law Center, located in Camden, has announced the addition of Eric Lyerly to the firm as an associate estate planning attorney.    
Lyerly holds a bachelor’s degree cum laude from the University of Alabama and Juris Doctor from Stetson University. He was admitted to the Maine Bar in December with a ceremony in the Knox County Court House.

Lyerly moved to Midcoast Maine in early 2020 from Florida. He lives with his wife and three children in Northport. 

“I was drawn to Estate Planning because I want to assist people with profound challenges and provide for the needs of the community,” he said, in a Penbay Estate news release.

Jesse Bifulco, senior attorney at the firm, welcomes Lyerly’s energy and believes he will be an asset to the firm in accomplishing its mission – “Preserving family wealth and preventing family conflict.”

Before arriving in Maine, Lyerly had professional experience in North Carolina as an administrative assistant at the North Carolina Bar; in Florida as an intern at the United States Attorney’s Office, Middle District Florida; a Summer Associate at Rumberger, Kirk & Caldwell, P.A.; and most recently as a Fellow at the Center for Excellence Higher Education, Law & Policy.  
Lyerly will be assisting the firm in estate planning, probate of wills as well as heading up the firm’s new trust estate and probate litigation department.  

Jesse Bifulco, Senior Attorney, is pleased to have Eric join the team. 

“Eric’s skill and training make him an asset to our law center, but his dedication to our mission and concern for the people and families he represents make him an asset to the whole community,” said Bifulco.
