Rental agreement contract
As landlords, we contracted Erica to review our existing lease and modify as she saw necessary. There were definitely a few sections that we were missing in our agreement. She was quick to pick up on that and amend appropriately for any future tenants. She was very prompt in reviewing the lease and return the modified version for our review. Her time and cost estimate were very reasonable and competitive. Working with Erica on this small project was an absolute pleasure!

Legal Advice About Insurance Claim
Erica provided me extensive legal advice about issues surrounding a car accident. Specifically how to handle a pip claim. If you have an insurance claim and need help, you should contact Erica. She was very thorough, responsive, and made me feel like someone really cared.
