Erin is by far the most understanding and patiant attorney that I have delt with. She let me speak and let me do what I felt was best for my kids and myself. She knew I just wanted the divorce to be done and over with. She talked to me as a client but also as a person who was having a hard time with my seperation. I WILL be using her in the near future to follow up on my case and I will recommend Erin to any one that is looking for a calm, down to earth, but NOT scared to go in and be a bull dog when needed!! Thanks Erin...
I would highly recommend Erin's services. She helped me through the most difficult time in my life and was always able to keep me grounded and looking at the big picture versus the small issues. She took a personal interest in my situation and the well-being of my children.
Erin is a the type of person that I would be friends with outside of the lawyer/client relationship. It was very easy to relate with her and that was extremely important to me. Your lawyer learns more about you than your best friends and feeling comfortable with them makes the whole process easier.
Going through a divorce is definately not fun. Not only are you dealing with the break-up of your relationship or family, but the legal system can be very intimidating. Erin kept me well informed of the process so that I knew what to expect at each step. Not worrying as much about the process was a relief.
We initially called three lawyers to form a basis of whom to select to update and prepare our family legal documents. Erin was the only lawyer who took the time to talk with us up front about how she could help us fulfill our needs and invited us to meet with her for a consultation. My wife and I formed an immediate bond as we learned of her qualifications and skills and more importantly of her family, religious and ethical values.
During the face to face meetings, Erin used a structured but non-formal and friendly approach in determining our choices and recording that information for her later drafting our new Wills, Durable Power of Attorney, Health Care Power of Attorney, etc. In addition, she was very helpful and recommended new legal documents that have recently emerged to fortify other documents -- these included the "Designation of Personal Representative" for HIPPA requirements; the "Appointment of Representative for Disposition of Bodily Remains" which is a new document authorized by the Ohio House in 2006 to enhance and legally record specific and concise final wishes to assist family members expediciously during a difficult time.
Erin also made a useful recommendation to deposit our wills and file them in the Probate Court so that an official copy would be available in an off-site location. She also took care of the filing details for us.
Overall, we were very pleased with Erin's legal knowledge and her ability to explain to us in easily understandable language, the details of some complex terms and concepts that are often taken for granted and not questioned because people may feel that it is common knowledge and don't want to be embarrassed. Erin made us feel at ease to ask any questions and took the time to explain them to us so that we really understood what is now in our legal documents.
We would recommend Erin to anyone who needs legal work performed and strongly endorse her working approach with clients as knowledgeable, courteous and easy to understand and work with. She kept us informed on her progress and completed all our requests in a timely manner.
Erin Armstrong is the best attorney I have ever worked with. She was highly recommended to me by another law firm.She is very knowledgeable of the law and is a very compassionate person. She worked very hard for me in my child custody case, and I would not hesitate to use her again if the need ever came up.
