Joshua Harry Erlich

About me

I founded a law firm because I wanted to spend more time with clients.  It turns out that you can go years at some firms without ever actually seeing a client.  I wanted to fix that and I have.


Now I am a full time litigator, a small business owner, a blogger, sometimes a part-time bookkeeper, and everything else that comes with owning your own firm.  And it's great.


My firm, The Erlich Law Office, pursues discrimination, wage, civil rights, constitutional and general litigation.  We handle matters from intake to conclusion, whether that is settlement, judgment or another result.
