Erica is smart, proactive, and high-energy. She was able to get money that had been owed to me for many years, in a matter of 3 months. Erica rocks!!

Since my daughter was born I've been dealing with problem after problem with her mother over seeing my daughter. At first I didn't know if i should hire Erica but after we talk and i explained all the years of problems i felt as she put her self in my shoes and was ready for a change. By the end of our conversation she told me "just continue doing what you have been and that a great father to your child and i will do my best to get your daughter back in your life consistently." Every since our first court hearing together Erica made sure I got more time with my daughter. Every time we had a hearing i would get more time, more time and more. I couldn't help but cry out of joy every time over the amazing job Erica has done for me. If you want an attorney that will go above and beyond for you Erica is the on for you.

Great Divorce Attorney
I cannot say enough about how well my proceeding went due to Erica's knowledge and diligence. I highly recommend her if you are considering representation.

I came to Erica, prior to my daughter being born. Explained to her my concerns and fears. She took it on with pride. Here’s the thing; if you want a run of the mill lawyer, go somewhere else. People say “you get what you pay for” that’s false. She was much cheaper than all other attorneys and I think I got treated much better. She’s EXTREMELY FAST at replying. Answers questions as if you you were paying her per sentence. If you want an attorney willing to give you the straight up facts, and won’t lie. She’s for you. We were about to settle with an agreement; I kept asking “what should I do??” Her response is “I’m not going to lie; I don’t have a glass ball to tell you. I’m not going to promise you something I can’t get you in the courts. I can get this agreement NOW but I can’t promise you what the judge will set on” She won’t promise you something you can’t win. Her prices are amazing. Her knowledge of the judges and court is incredible. Needlessly; I won every I asked for and MORE bc of her case during trial. Bottom line… Erica did so much for me and put me into my little girls life; not bc “it’s her job” but because she understood.

Great job
Erica was fast and very empathetic about the situation. I would recommend her for everyone. Not your typical heartless lawyer.

Ms. Speraw is an amazing lawyer. On time. Capable of telling you the truth of your situation and how the judge will see it without being harsh. Stayed in contact and kept me in the loop every step of the way. Reasonably priced. And got results FAST. She was on it. Handled herself very proffesionally yet was able to comfort me when I was anxious wreck. (Even though that isn't her job.) Made my first court date ever much less intimidating. Just, all around an awesome person. Will definitely be going back for any future issues.

Second to none!
I contacted Erica during my search online for a divorce Attorney when my Ex-husband filed for a divorce. Erica was able to talked with me with in the same 1hr of my phone contact with her Law firm. She is very straight forward and can feel your emotion through the phone. I was so nervous since the divorce was a shocked to me and a child custody was involved. I became calmed immediately after our short conversation on the phone. ;Unfortunately she couldn't represent me because the Attorney that was representing my Ex and Erica work in the same office. However she gives me recommendation to an Attorney that has a heart like her. If you are searching online and you see Erica, You're already blessed. Thank you Erica!!

Best dang lawyer around!
Erica is one of the most caring and vigilante lawyers I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. Not that I have to use a lawyer much but after being put in a situation and seeing how LITTLE other lawyers do, she has gone above and beyond in a matter of weeks. She's done more work and done more change than any of our other lawyers ever did. She's easily available, ready to help and give her advice on situations. She's also a hard hitter, doesn't take no for an answer and will tell it to you straight instead of taking your money and lying to you over the course of years. Best family law lawyer there is! If your not hiring this woman, you're a dum dum.

My divorce was one of the hardest things I ever had to go through in my life. From my initial consultation with Erica I was sold. She took the time I needed to put my mind at ease from the beginning. I never felt rushed or like I was pushed is a way I didn't want to. As a father I had an uphill battle to get custody of my children and she was able to inform and help point me in the right directions and I was able to get full custody. She really cared from the beginning and was right there every step of the way through the ups and downs. So if life has come to a divorce I strongly recommend you choose Erica with confidence.

Erica's first words to me where I'm busy I don't have to meet with you.
So today I received paperwork and I tried to contact my lawyer about it and see if she needed me to show it to her before I fill that out and sent it in. tried to call her explaining it to her receptionist on the phone she would go to ask me questions and when I went to answer we kept accidentally interrupting each other and I was like sorry ma'am I didn't mean to and she kept doing it and then she yelling at me for it and I said ma'am please don't do that she then said something else then I said fine I'll come down there and talk to Erica my lawyer. The receptionist answering the phone she accused me of threatening her. So I went down there since phone calls weren't working to talk to her. I explained it to the security and the lady that accused me up threatening her runs to the security and lies. they then surround me like I did something wrong. I'm like fine okay and left and when we were in the truck on their way home Erica called me and said that she's quit she's not going to represent me she's accusing me of harassing her staff harassing her and threatening her. Me calling trying to get a hold of her to let her know stuff when I'm supposed to it's not harassment, me saying fine I'll have to come and talk to Erica it's not a threat. Before this incident she said more than once before that no one else is going to represent me at JJC or court appointed. When I first contacted her in the beginning she kept telling me that she don't want to meet with me she doesn't have to she's too busy.

One of the most inexperienced and undiscerning attorneys you could possibly imagine. She doesn’t help protect children’s best interests and she only helps highly narcissistic parent’s that try to manipulate the justice system and plan to alienate kids from the other parent. One of The worst!

Not worth your money
Erica is one of the worst lawyers I’ve ever dealt with. I had piles of evidence for my case and she did not care to use any of it. She didn’t bother to look through it at all. I would not recommend her to anyone.
