Erika helped me navigate through my recent dissolution. Her confident, knowledgeable and compassionate approach helped relieve my anxiety about the process. She and her team made the process quick and painless. I didn't even have to go to the courthouse to complete the process. I would highly recommend Erika and her team to everyone going through a divorce/dissolution.

Erika Smitherman is an extremely ethical and professional attorney. What sets her apart from the rest, is her empathy and loyalty to her clients. (There are seldom attorney's in it because they care.) The emotional support and honesty provided by Erika is rare to find. When we came to see her our family life was in shambles (due to a Military move out of state)... But Erika gave us hope and decided to take our case when others would not even consider it. Erika stood ready to help our family during a stressful and challenging situation. She is tenacious in fighting for your rights as a parent and your best interests. Erika guided us through the process, step by step, was very responsive, and her rates were extremely affordable. This was our first experience hiring a lawyer and we are more than happy with the outcome and our choice to have her represent us in a custody case.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
I've had the opportunity to work with Erika on two matters, one as opposing counsel and one as a Guardian ad Litem. She's willing to work toward amicable resolution of cases without the need for protracted litigation or discovery demands to be cost effective for her clients. At the same time, she's more than capable of fighting hard for her clients when the need arises. It was a pleasure working with her in finding workable and effective results for both our clients and their young children.
