Amazing lawyer
I reached out to Erika, in a very desperate time of need. She was very quick to get me in to see her and instantly knew the best way to handle the situation. She is very experienced in what she does, and helped me accomplish everything I need with as little damage done as possible. I would 100% recommend her to anyone dealing with spousal issues or custody.

Awesome Divorce Attorney
Erica meet with me for the first time for free. Her secretary even gave me quarters for the parking meter out front of her office. She was very professional and answered all my questions. She handled everything from start to finish for me so never had to step foot in a court room. Her hourly rate was the best I found in Guilford county. I have already referred two other friends that are going through a divorce to her firm. I will continue to refer friends and family to her in future.

Quality Service
I hired Erica Backus to be my representative for my prenuptial agreement. Erica was very professional and helped me make the best decisions for me. She was able to answer any questions I had and helped me understand exactly what I was reading, since the prenuptial agreement is written in legal jargon. I look forward to working with her in the future for other legal matters.

Stop looking! THIS IS YOUR LAWYER!!!
Could not be more pleased with the work that Erica and the Dummit Fradin firm did on my behalf. A speeding ticket can cause a lot of frustration in a person's life - and this firm made the whole process easy for me. After the judgement, it was clear that I had lawyers who worked for ME and not their bottom line! Thank you Ms. Backus and the whole Dummit Fradin family. I am more than satisfied with your work. A job well done!
