She handles cases involving domestic relations, including divorce, custody, child support, support for adult disabled persons, guardianship, domestic violence, property settlement, alimony, post-judgment issues, prenuptial agreements and postnuptial agreements. Erin credits her success to her ability to help clients find the most effective and efficient way to set and achieve their goals. She is a fierce advocate for those she represents, both in negotiations and in the courtroom. Licensed to practice law in Maryland and the District of Columbia, Erin also has taken the 40-hour Maryland Divorce Mediation training.

Erin graduated from Bucknell University in Lewisburg, Pa., with a Bachelor of Science in Business Management. She received her Juris Doctor from the Shepard Broad Law Center at Nova Southeastern University in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., where she received the Pro Bono Honors award.
