Eric Holder Net Worth $11.5 Million

Eric is the son of Eric Himpton Holder Sr., who was born in Barbados, but came to the USA at 11 years of age, and in his adult life worked as real estate broker, while his mother, Miriam is native of New Jersey. Eric was in a way predestined for great things; from fifth grade onwards, he was a part of the program made for intellectually gifted children, and then attended Stuyvesant High School in Manhattan. After matriculation, he enrolled at Columbia University, and in 1973 graduated with a BA degree in American History. After that, he continued his education at Columbia Law School, obtaining his Juris Doctor Degree in 1976. Before his private professional career began, Eric worked for the United States Attorney and NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund during his time at Columbia.

Following the end of his studies, Eric became a part of the Public Integrity Section of the US Justice Department. He stayed there for the next 12 years, which increased his net worth and also helped him build highly needed experience. In 1988 he moved a step forward, as then President Ronald Reagan appointed him as a judge on the Superior Court of the District Columbia. For the next five years, Eric served as the judge, and then took the chance given by President Bill Clinton and became US Attorney for the District of Columbia in 1993. Four years later, Eric progressed further, assuming the position of the Deputy Attorney General, but his tenure ended with Clinton`s impeachment. However, he fought for his country, focusing on budget and personnel issues, among other areas, with his net worth steadily increasing.

After the end of his tenure as US Deputy Attorney General, Eric went to work for the law firm Covington & Burling, and represented numerous high profile clients, including pharmaceutical company Merck & Co., then NFL, Swiss bank UBS, and many others, which only increased his net worth.

In 2009 he returned to public practice, as elected President Barack Obama nominated him for the position of Attorney General, and with a dominant vote difference with 75 for and 21 against, he became the first African-American in this important position, serving until 2014 when he decided to resign, stating personal reasons. He was succeeded by Loretta Lynch.

Regarding his personal life, Eric has been married to Sharon Malone since 1990, with whom he has three children. Eric works as mentor for several programs focused on youth in inner-cities, for which he is also praised. In his free time, he attends basketball games, and plays recreationally mostly because of his connection with retired basketball star Jeff Malone, who is his nephew.
