Erin has gone above and beyond what any attorney would do for their client. I have been dealing with an extremely difficult legal situation to say the least.

THANKS ERIN YOU TOUCHED MY HEART AND MADE ME BELIEVE THAT THERE IS JUSTICE OUT THERE!!! I RECOMMEND ERIN TO REPRESENT YOU ! YOU WILL BE IN GREAT HANDS !!! XO XO
Erin suggested that we use mediation, as opposed to trying to fight out my divorce in court. Like most divorces, mine was ugly and painful and there was a lot of anger. Erin was able to bring my ex and I together in a professional and empathetic meeting and sort things out as amicably as possible. She saved us so much heartache (and legal fees!) that a court battle would have brought. I highly recommend her firm.
Erin was a pleasure to work with! She listened to all my concerns and guided me in the right direction. She had my best interests in court and stood up for me, helping me to get what I was achieving for. I would definitely recommend her to a friend. When I am ready to go back to court again to further my case, I will definitely use her!
