Our Testimonials


Most wonderful lawyer and person I have met in a very long time!

Erica is truly the best lawyer I have ever used. She was always available to me, and always made me feel as though I were her only client. Even at my worst moments and most difficult times, Erica supported me through my divorce modification, and made me feel confident and strong. Erica will always be my attorney, and I’m proud to say, always my friend now too!!


Patient, great listener, great knowledge

Erica successfully administered an appeal for me at the Arizona Superior Court. During initial consultation, she was a great listener and I could tell she understood my problem well, and knew how to fix it. She did exactly what she said she would do and now I can go back to work. Thank you so much Erica.
