I am a licensed attorney practicing law in the Commonwealth of Virginia. I have experience in the fields of Litigation, Contract Disputes, Corporate Governance, and Government Relations. I am also experienced in Criminal and Civil Litigation and am a goal oriented, hard-working individual.  

I became an attorney to assist people during the most challenging times of their lives, whether that be criminal charges, eviction from their home, or outstanding debts. Too often, I came across individuals who were unaware of their legal rights and remedies. I believe the best feeling in the world is when I can see the relief of my clients as their weight of their legal troubles is lifted.

I look forward to continuing to provide legal assistance to past and future client in all areas of law.  If I can be of assistance in any way, do not hesitate to contact my office.

Fantastic
Ms. Battle and her assistant Ms. Hershey were great to work with. The charges were dropped and my case was dismissed. It would not have happened without their guidance and experience. I highly recommend Ms. Erika Battle.

Professional, Compassionate and Diligent
Ms. Battle was effective in securing an Order of Protection to protect me from my spouse and was diligent in having false and malicious charges he filed against me dropped. She and her Assistant, Kristalyn, showed great compassion as I reported the weekly (and sometimes daily) terror suffered.

Ericka Battle is WONDERFUL
This is the second time Ms. Battle has represented me, and I could not be more pleased with the outcome. NOT GUILTY. She is sophisticated, professional, and very poised. If you hire Ms. Battle you will not be disappointed. Thank you Ericka!!!!

Ericka battles for you!
Ms Battle did not do a whole lot of communicating with me during the trial or on the phone... I was concerned she may have been neglecting me.... But in reality she was in the courtroom, outside of it and everywhere in that courthouse pushing for my charges to be dismissed....She was diligent and thorough when it came to doing the things she said she would.My case was a case of me being in the wrong place and catching some raw charges ... I explained it one time to Ms Battle and the case went my way. Thank you so much Ms Battle... You the Woman!! Sincerely Robert

Overall, I give Ericka a "good" rating. Her work was sound, and she may have done the best should could on my case with the particular judge that she had to work with, but I would have liked to have known from her why the judge would not drop the speeding charge. A little extra communication may have turned this experience into an "excellent" review.
