Amazing Attorney!!
Erin went above and beyond for me. Not only did she genuinely care about my situation but she invested the time to make sure justice was served. Erin is very easy to talk to, very thorough, very affordable, and very highly recommended! If you have a case in Lake County look no further. Erin is the one you are searching for!

Excelllent attorney!
I am very pleased with Ms. Cartwright. She is an excellent attorney! She is very knowledgeable about the law and extremely comfortable in the courtroom. Simply put, she knows what she is doing and gets results. I would absolutely recommend her to my family and friends.

Honest and reliable
Erin assisted me in preparing a pre-nuptual agreement. What I felt was a mere formality prior to my marriage had so many nuances I hadn't expected. She made sure I understood that. As an attorney myself, I have a different expectation of what an attorney should provide me in service and Erin definitely delivered - above and beyond! She looked out for my best interests and was available to answer my questions every step of the way. In addition to her many years of experience, she was responsive and attentive (something lost on many attorneys these days) and I appreciated that more than anything else. We had waited to the last minute to have the pre-nup drafted, but Erin made sure that despite the time crunch, that I fully understood every line of the agreement before it was signed. I would not hesitate to refer her to anyone needing a family law attorney as well as to fellow attorneys who are looking for a reliable and experienced attorney who truly looks out for her clients best interests.

Great Quality and Value Lawyer!
Erin Cartwright is overall a great attorney! She listens carefully and gives attention to your case more than some high profile lawyers. She does not hurry you through the case or finds the easy resolution to your case that is not in your best interest. or that is not the best possible outcome. She takes time to KNOW your case before giving options. She kept me informed every step of the way. She is an attorney that can be trusted to serve you through your difficult time!!
