In Erin's Own Words:

"My interest in litigation and insurance law comes from finding enjoyment from learning something new every day. Specifically in insurance law, I have the opportunity to learn different aspects of science including engineering, medicine and psychology. I enjoy files that have complex fact scenarios where I can immerse myself into the details, provide my client with a clear and concise assessment of those facts and then work collaboratively to move the claim forwards. I find this rewarding and it keeps me engaged in my job day to day.

My approach to file handling is client focused and considers their interests and the demands that they are facing. I aim to be practical and approachable to my clients and other lawyers by fostering open communication which significantly contributes to finding resolutions at every stage of a file."

Erin is currently a board member with Edmonton and Area Corporate Challenge. In her free time, she enjoys mountain biking, skiing, golf, slo-pitch and spending time with her family.
