  • Rebecca Kristen Wrock

    I have known Erin for many years. During law school I was lucky to have Erin as a mentor, and I now have the privilege of knowing Erin as a friend and fellow attorney. Erin is my go-to attorney when I have a client who has intellectual property questions. She is very active within the legal community and Women's Bar, and she is always ready for a challenge. I enthusiastically recommend Erin for any intellectual property law matter.
