About Erin

Learn Erin’s areas of practice.

Erin began her career in television production at a national network, but after seeing the news coverage of the devastating effects of Hurricane Katrina, she decided to attend law school to help victims of similar disasters.
Originally from Lexington, Kentucky, Erin worked at a national television network before realizing that her true passion was the law. She then went back and attended law school and has been representing Insureds in various capacities ever since becoming a member of the Florida Bar in 2011. Erin has handled litigation in both state and federal courts throughout Florida and the United States. She has handled insurance cases from their inception, all the way through the appeals process.

Erin has extensive knowledge and experience involving both residential and commercial property disputes, some that have resulted in bad faith disputes. Erin is also not afraid to take an insurance company to the mat and has prevailed in jury trials over some of Florida’s largest insurance companies, including Universal Property and Casualty Insurance Company and Citizens Property Insurance Corporation. She is committed to holding insurance companies accountable for the promises they make to their insureds, even it means holding them accountable in front of a judge and jury.

Erin graduated from the Florida Coastal School of Law, where she was a Dean’s Scholar and received the Founder’s Award. While attending Florida Coastal she was member of the award winning Mock Trial team and was Vice President of the International Law Society.

Erin also enjoys educating others in the field of Insurance and has lectured on insurance and litigation issues involving first party insurance claims throughout Florida, including having presented at conferences such as WINDSTORM and FAPIA. She has also discussed topics such as Hurricanes and Sinkholes on the Tampa Bay-based Radio show, Tampa Home Talk.

When she’s not advocating for her Insured clients, Erin enjoys spending time with her daughters, Susan and Grace and her husband Dan. She and her husband are both avid sports fans.

Excellent Attorney, Professional and Compassionate
I hired Erin to assist with a challenging insurance claim, during a very difficult time. She was caring, always there to help with questions or explain the next steps. She was very knowledgeable, professional and kind. She is truly great to work with, especially under a stressful and emotional situation. Additionally, she was persistent, did not give up, looked for alternative solutions. Ultimately, we won the case and very happy with the outcome. Thank you Erin!

What a great lawyer
Erin was so easy to work with. She understood I had never been through this process before and explained everything step by step. She answers questions and explains in plain English the what, why’s and where fires. Erin is a fighter for you.

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Erin and I have worked within the same property insurance community for years. I recently had the pleasure of co-counseling a few cases with her. Insurance coverage is a very difficult area to master and she excels in her handling of coverage claims. She is also superb trial attorney who knows evidence like the back of her hand. I am very proud to call her my colleague."
