Outstanding SSI disability
I used Erika for my appeal and she is genuinely passionate about helping her clients. She always returned my calls and answered my questions. She agreed to represent me when no one else would and she really knows the laws. I won my case and I am so happy with her. I would refer her any time

Outstanding Attorney
I've worked in the legal industry for a long time, so I've seen first-hand a lot of great and not-so-great attorneys. Erika Alverson is very professional and knowledgeable. She and her team are quick to respond to my questions and concerns. I felt well represented in my workers comp case. She gave me excellent advice at every turn. In addition, both she and her paralegal are kind and caring. I recommend her highly for her high level of skill and experience.

Social Security Disability Claim
The first time I went to see Ericka I knew that she was confident, knowledgeable and cared about her clients. She proved to me that all this is true. She always kept me informed and answered any questions and concerns that I had during this long process and waiting that it takes for Social Security Disability Claims. I would recommend her very highly. My case was awarded the same day as my hearing. I am very grateful to her and her staff for being so professional and caring at the same time.

I am very happy.
Erika was very involved with me as a client. I won my case and she knew the results before I did. The firm called me and let me know the results. I am very grateful for her.

I had called a different law firm about my case and they didn't have the decency to call me back and let me know they where not taking my case, How ever when I called Erika I was very skeptic and told her what had happened with the first one I had called, but Erika from the start had told me she could and would be able to do something for me and would always keep me informed and she did just that. Thank You

Erika provided us with a wonderful experience. She was extremely knowledgeable regarding the legal concerns we were dealing with. Erika made us feel confident in her abilities at our initial consultation and walked us through every stage of the process and eased any concerns we may have had. We would definitely recommend her services to our friends and families.

My review for Erika
From my first meeting with Erika, I felt I was in good hands. She listened carefully to my "take" on my situation and guided me smoothly and professionally throughout the entire process, both with Workers Comp and Social Security. I am now able to move on with my life and I will always appreciate her diligence. I will always consider her a trusted advisor.

The Best Lawyer You Can Ask For Going Through The Work Comp System
Erika was recommended to me by my therapist as I was going through the comp system after a robbery left me with PTSD. I had tried to go through a few different lawyers for help and they turned me away claiming that they didn't handle psychiatric cases. Erika took me on with out hesitation, helped me to get the treatment I needed after relapsing. She always answered every question I had during the process. Best of all she worked for the comp system and now works against them so she knows the dirty tricks they are trying to pull over on you and how to fight back. She took time to get to know me and my case and always made time for us (me and my parents) to come into the office as we got to different points. When we FINALLY reached the settlement portion she would help me to make it through all the confusion and law terms that left me freaked out. I would recommend Erika to ANYONE who needs help with a work comp system!

Workman's Compensation case
Erika Alverson has steadily and accurately guided us through this process. She has always been readily available for us and returns communication quickly. Erika has been very accurate with the prognosis for our case. I highly recommend Erika Alverson.

The best caring ,knowledgeable attorneyI have ever come across.
Not only is Erika committed to her clients she is very trustworthy and caring. I would recommend her to a person that is honest and has a genuine injury. Erika is a very caring person and will keep you informed. She works hard for her clients and carries high standards. She knows the laws and will fight for your well being and rights.She is very organized and has alot of respect in the community. The thing I like best about Erika is she listens well and takes the time to check in and see how your doing.

Awful representation
This Attorney basically lost me my disability case...She wasn't even prepared to go into the Administrative hearing at all! She didn't know anything about my case and at the hearing was the first I had ever met or talked actually to her...had only spoken with the paralegal before then. To top it all off...she and the vocational person argued on a personal level so it seemed. It was the worst experience ever and I had a solid case to win. I am so regretting using this lawyer for representation!!!
