Her interest in family and estates law developed out of her desire to make a real impact on people, and help them navigate the legal process during some of the most challenging periods in their lives. Erin is approachable, driven and detail-oriented.

Outside of the office, Erin loves attending country music concerts and spending time with her family, including the most important member – her dog Whiskey. She also enjoys hot yoga when she needs some Zen.
