My experience with Erin Bogdanowicz
At the most stressful and turbulant time of my adult life, Ms. Bogdanowicz handled my divorce beyond all expectations and very successfully. Before I contacted Ms. Bogdanowicz to handle my case, I had no direction on what to do and how to handle it. Ms. Bogdanowicz immediately gave me great assurance and designed a strategy that I could follow. She gave me direction and choices while sharing her experience and knowledge. She kept me informed, updated me constantly and in a timely manner. All my questions were answered promptly and clearly. She virtually 'held my hand' through the whole process. Not only was I being strongly represented, but I was given peace of mind. All information I was given and direction I received from Ms. Bogdanowicz was correct and proved to be successful for me and my case. I strongly recommend Ms. Bogdanowicz to handle difficult and complicated legal matters. She's an outstanding member of the legal profession and I would seek her out for any future legal issues I encounter.

Erin's Great!
Erin is representing me in a divorce action and has been very helpful throughout the process that is ongoing at this point. She typically returns phone calls immediately and is direct and to the point. I would consider her a true, no nonsense attorney, who does care for her clients from my experience thus far.

She is been helping me a lot on my case answering all my questions and concerns. Most important, Erin is a person to whom I can trust. Thanks! Erin for all your help.

Extremely professional with great knowledge yet very personable. A very rare awesome Attorney
Edrin has been great to work with during a very difficult time. She always has great answers and sees things from a different perspective. Whenever I get rattled or down she always picks me up and has a great sense of humor. I can't imagine going through my divorce without Erin representing me.
Posted by David Smith | July 8, 2011
Very pleased with Erin's work
Erin defended me in a court case against a much, much more experienced lawyer, and won me a large award of attorney fees and court costs from the other party, who won none of their contentions. I could not have been more pleased, save to have never been in court in the first place. Thank you Erin!
