Erin C. Eurenius is delighted to help seniors, individuals with disabilities, and their families at West Side Elder Law. She was admitted to the Ohio Bar in 2015. She is certified as an Elder Law Attorney by the National Elder Law Foundation as a CELA®. The CELA® is accredited by both the American Bar Association and the Supreme Court of Ohio Commission on Certification of Attorneys as Specialists. 

Her passion for elder law stems from her personal experiences with her grandmother, Helen. Erin’s grandmother helped to raise her while living with the family. Around the age of 84, Helen was diagnosed with dementia and a few short years later suffered from a stroke. Erin watched the repercussions of not planning ahead for these devastating occurrences in life. Erin went to doctor’s visits and hospital calls at 3 am and visited the nursing home. She saw the guardianship process firsthand. She understands the stress and anxiety that a family can be dealing with during these situations. Her goal while practicing law is to be a helping hand through the process, easing the tensions and fears that our clients and their families may be experiencing. She will work in the areas of estate planning, Medicaid, asset protection, Veterans benefit, and probate and trust administration.

Erin’s family experiences with her grandmother motivated her to attend law school. She obtained her Juris Doctor from Cleveland Marshall College of Law. Erin participated in the dual degree program and also has her Masters of Business Administration. Her previous professional career involves working in public and private accounting at the firms of PriceWaterhouse Coopers and RSM McGladrey. Her focus was on tax. Erin is a Certified Public Accountant having obtained her Bachelor of Business Administration with degrees in international business, finance, and accounting from Cleveland State University. She was part of the inaugural Honors Program at CSU and graduated Summa Cum Laude. She grew up in the Cleveland area and attended Padua Franciscan High School. Go, Bruins!

Erin has won awards for her work in elder law and estate planning including being named a Rising Star by Superlawyers for 2020, 2021, 2022. She also received the 25 under 35 Movers and Shakers award from The Cleveland Professional 20/30 Club. 

Erin plans to use her personal experience and legal knowledge to understand your situation and benefit you.

Elder Law
After the death of my father, we realized that our Will, Power of Attorney, and Health Care Provisions, were inadequate. Erin proved very competent in her understanding of the specialty that elder law demands She was very patient with her time and made sure we fully understood the finer points of the law. We are completely satisfied that when these documents are needed they will serve us well. Erin is a joy to work with.

Very competent, professional, and easy to work with
Erin re-drafted our wills, trusts, and other similar documents, which were originally done over 25 years ago. She was patient with us, made obscure legal concepts accessible, and made us feel comfortable throughout the process. She is very competent, professional, and easy to work with and brings a lot of experience to the job. Very well credentialed too.
