About Erin

Learn Erin’s areas of practice.

My law practice is located at Ponce City Market in Atlanta, Georgia. I provide concierge-level service to clients facing drug and alcohol-related offenses, including cases involving traffic, misdemeanor, and felony charges.

I am always exploring new opportunities to deliver expert client service. After receiving incredible mentorship for nine years at a renowned boutique practice in Atlanta, I opened up my own, modern practice that uses cutting-edge technologies to best serve my clients. I use digital tools and systems to make the process of hiring, and working with me easy and frictionless.

My clients are looking for an attorney who is readily available to address their unique concerns throughout the life of the case. When my client has a question, he or she wants to speak with me directly. I am the primary point of contact for my clients and I encourage regular contact on my cell phone, via text, phone or email.

At the outset, I engage in a lengthy and meaningful discussion with my clients about their individual concerns regarding the pending criminal charges. Regardless of complexity, for every case, there are many different possible outcomes that can have a variety of implications for my clients. I tell my clients what they can expect, and discuss the specific motions, trial strategies, and negotiations that best address my client’s priorities.

My clients know that I will provide prompt updates that include straightforward explanations of what has happened in their case, along with what our options will be moving forward. I am careful to invest a great deal of time explaining important decisions that must be made and I give my clients with the information they need to make these critical decisions.

Very responsive to my specific needs and great peace of mind.
The EHG team communicated clearly and advised right things. The whole team worked very well on my case and I specially thanks to Ms. Ansley, so kind; very strong and knowledgeable in handling my matter. So much peace of mind in working with EHG team. Thanks a lot, to EHG team! I absolutely recommend.

Incredible team!
Not only did Erin and Juanita ease my anxiety and answer my millions of questions, but they got my DUI charge dismissed. They were always accessible and extremely knowledgeable of every part of the court process. I can’t thank them enough for helping me and would recommend them to anyone in a heartbeat!

Traffic FTA resolved quickly and efficiently!
I’m a Florida resident and it was time to renew my Florida drivers licenses. Florida DMV told me I could not renew because of a 15 year old traffic violation in Atlanta. I reached out to Juanita and was genuinely impressed and amazed at how quickly and efficiently she resolved my issue. I retained her services on Saturday and by 11:00 on Monday morning the issue was resolved. Saved me the time, expense, and hassle of going to Atlanta and resolving myself. While I hope I never need Juanita’s services again, if I do, my first and only call will be to her. In these days when people don’t always do what they say they will do, Juanita is a rock star.

Swift resolution
EHG quickly handled my traffic court case in a time period that didn't create any further issues. They have good connections to the court that helped ensure this was done in a timely manner. Very responsive to information and fair value for the work

Great lawyers
I lost my license and the soonest court date I could get scheduled on my own was about a month out. I desperately needed my driving privileges back sooner than that. Consulted several attorneys and they all gave me a similar answer; they likely could not get me in any sooner. Erin confidently gave me a different answer and followed through. She was understanding of my situation and her team got my case resolved much sooner. I couldn’t be happier. Highly recommended.

I am very grateful for Erin and the team's assistance! No one wants to need a lawyer, but when you need one - you might find it's difficult to find one that will listen. Erin listens and cares. I received a stack of traffic violations one day. All of them required a court appearance. Normally, I would probably just shrug and pay the fines. However, there were multiple well documented events demonstrating multiple failures from multiple government agencies. The various communication and operational breakdowns that occurred were most likely a result of institutional dysfunction caused by the pandemic. Additionally, the fines would be expensive. My insurance would go up and cost me more for years to come. Most importantly to me is the fact that I am a US citizen that married my foreign partner. We have been going through the USCIS immigration process for a prolonged period - also as a result of the pandemic. The immigration process is emotionally and financially challenging. It's even more difficult during a pandemic. Regardless, the last thing we needed was me to plead guilty to a misdemeanor. I was afraid of trying to navigate the process by myself, because a 12 month jail time sentence was technically a possibility - although, unlikely I think. Nevertheless, the situation was complicated and stressful. I tried contacting multiple attorneys. I was surprised at how difficult it was to get a consultation from other attorneys. From my experience, Erin was the most organized, most passionate, honest and intelligent lawyer I spoke with. I had a lot of negative emotions about the situation I was in. Erin was very good at listening, redirecting me and helping me to focus on the priorities. I was so relieved after speaking with Erin that I agreed to hire the EHG Law Firm for my case. The EHG team communicated clearly with me at each step along the way. Their communications were punctual, too. Their communication allowed me to relax and not have as much anxiety as I would have had otherwise. When they needed some clarification about details, they asked me for it. I fully recommend EHG Law Firm 100%. The price was reasonable. My peace of mind was priceless. The results were the best I could have hoped for.

So grateful
This is a great team! They are understanding and patient and make sure you have plenty of time and opportunity to discuss your concerns/frustrations/expectations/ideal outcomes. They give you all of your options to consider (best and worst case and everything in between). I didn’t feel like I was being judged for the circumstances or position my family was in. I think this team’s career has only just begun and will continue to grow and succeed!

Wow, I am impressed!!!
I had a free consultation with Ansley and she was absolutely wonderful. I have never hired a lawyer before but felt I needed to look into it due to traffic violation that I did not want to affect my insurance. She was so very helpful and gave me solid advice. She was so lovely to talk with and dispelled all my fears. If I ever do need to hire a lawyer, I now know what firm to call!!

Phenomenal Team !
I was in need of a traffic attorney due to a steep speeding ticket requiring legal help to keep it off my record for insurance purposes. I received my citation just in the beginning of COVID lockdown. Being from out of state I was not sure how everything was going to work because I had to leave and courts not being open may or may not push my court dates back. I contacted multiple attorneys and was not happy with them when I came across Erin she was very understanding, made a plan and discussed how it may be executed and most of all was affordable for my needs. As was expected courts remained closed without further notice but Erin and Ansley continued to keep me well informed via phone and email and stayed on top of it allowing me to be at ease about the situation. They were in-fact able to appeal my case outside of the courts and get my case closed with no impact to my record only paying a small fine. Thank you so much to one of the greatest LAW TEAMS in ATL. ERIN AND ANSLEY and the rest of the EHG Team YOU ROCK !

Great
So I had questions about some of the tickets I had. She consulted with me. What was the best option. She was very friendly and helpful. I was going back-and-forth whether I need attorney or not. I’m thankful for her willingness to talk to me and understanding where I stand.

EHG - the best!
I needed a criminal defense attorney and came across EHG law firm. I decided to give her a call, which was the best decision I had made. Erin was extremely detail-oriented, caring, and so good at what she does that it was clear that I was in great hands. She has a great reputation as a criminal defense attorney and cares about her clients —day and night. I was very anxious about my court date but Erin was always there to answer my never-ending questions and worries. She provided great advice and step by step process of my case. Conversations with her were lengthy and full of information. On the day of my court date, Erin was able to get the result we had hoped for: no criminal record and my ticket was changed to the lowest ordinance violation! I will always recommend Erin to anyone in need of a criminal defense attorney in Atlanta. Happy client!

Victory! (Dismissed Traffic Offense (Accident)
Erin is a phenomenal lawyer. She is so educated and good at what she does its hard to go against what she is fighting for. Erin helped my case by getting it dismissed and I am so pleased and thankful. This incident has been weighing so heavy on me for months and its finally over. I’ve been dealing with so much because of my accident and prayed that I would be able to find someone who could help me resolve a big piece of the problem and Erin was the best choice to do so. The best part of this whole process was Erin being available whenever I or my mom needed her. That made us feel very comfortable and at ease that all of our questions and concerns were answered and I knew exactly what was going on with my case because of her involvement. The day of court everything went very smoothly, and happened in a short period of time. She is definitely about her business and a wonderful person to represent her clients. When I say I will AlWAYS use Erin I mean that, and I will ALWAYS recommend her to other clients.

Fantastic Experience
I can't say enough about how good of an experience I had with EHG and Erin. She was extremely proactive and very professional. The cost of my case was well worth the results and I would recommend Erin to anyone looking for a criminal defense attorney. This was my first time actually needing an attorney and at the end of the day I didn't even have to step foot in a court room. The case was completely baseless and was ultimately dropped but throughout the 4 week process Erin would call me frequently to discuss the in's and out's of the case, answer any questions I had and spend as much time as was needing walking me through the process.

Highest Possible Recommendation
I highly recommend Erin. She was so kind and empathetic; she put me at ease immediately. Not once did I have to call her to check on the status of my case. She initially explained the process step-by-step, then called me all along the way to explain what was happening. She never seemed in a hurry to end a conversation and answered all of my questions in more detail than I even thought to ask. That kind of professionalism and care for the client is extremely rare these days! She did not promise a successful outcome and was honest about the chances. But her strategies worked and the result was better than I had allowed myself to hope. Erin is an excellent attorney (and person). I once saw a sign in a business that read, "If we don't take care of our customers, someone else will." Erin practices that philosophy of client care. Don't hesitate to hire her to help you.

Expert advice and very accessible
Erin was extremely helpful both with the legal aspect of our case and in explaining how to navigate traffic court on our own. She provided excellent advice on various scenarios to expect and how to handle them. She’s very responsive and accessible too, which is a huge help when it comes to scheduling a visit or a follow-up call.

Erin Is The Best
Highly recommended. Erin solved a traffic problem for me years ago. She did a great job and the whole process was quick and painless. A few years later when a paperwork glitch surfaced in another state, Erin was right on top of it. From far away she was able to get paperwork sorted out, court dockets checked and had accurate information and advice on the laws of another state. Her communication is prompt and clear. She is responsive, knowledgeable, understanding and efficient. As I said, highly recommended

"Erin is, quite simply, one of the very best DUI lawyers in Atlanta. She has the unique ability to disarm prosecutors and negotiate resolutions that most other lawyers would not think possible.
