Brian Eberle grew up in Park Ridge, Illinois before attending the University of Illinois where he received a Bachelor of Science degree in General Engineering. He was a four-year member of the intercollegiate Men’s Soccer Club, received the G.E. Department’s Outstanding Senior Design Project Award and was a Bronze Tablet Scholar.

 

Mr. Eberle received his J.D. from the UCLA School of Law. He worked as an intern at patent and intellectual property firms during law school and then served for two years as a law clerk for a federal judge in Los Angeles. After moving to Colorado, Mr. Eberle was an associate and later a partner at the Denver law firm of Sherman & Howard, L.L.C. He represented clients in complex commercial litigation in more than 20 states and presented arguments in numerous state and federal trial and appellate courts.

 

Mr. Eberle has been a volunteer for the American Cancer Society for over 15 years, including providing pro bono legal services. He was the primary author of a friend-of-the-court brief filed for ACS in the United State Supreme Court in King v. Burwell, leading to the Supreme Court’s decision upholding tax credits for all eligible Americans, including cancer patients, under the Affordable Care Act.

 

Mr. Eberle also volunteers with Project C.U.R.E., a non-profit based in Denver, for which he has helped organize and load 40-foot cargo containers with donated medical supplies and equipment shipped to over 35 developing countries. Prior to the Covid-19 pandemic, he also joined Project C.U.R.E. Health Clinic volunteer teams on separate trips to Suriname and Paraguay in South America to assist in providing free medical care to patients in rural and rain forest communities without access to adequate health care.
