5 Stars Isn't Enough!!!
Where do I even begin.... I was actually referred to Mike Pettiti by another law firm when trying to inquire on the legality of a unilateral change to my company's existing PTO policy. Upon contacting the office of Aiken Schenk Hawkins & Ricciardi to speak with Mike, I was transferred to Erin Hertzog who I informed of the concern that I had with my company and if it in fact violated any Arizona employment laws. She was an absolute pleasure, very thorough, asked several questions and obtained details surrounding my situation to see what legal options, if any, I had moving forward. A few days later, my employer found out that I had consulted with an attorney and subsequently, I was sent home from work and then terminated the following day. The 10 months that would follow my termination were an absolute nightmare. Murphy's Law, anything that could have gone wrong, did. I was a single mother facing being homeless after an eviction and repossession of my vehicle, all due to my loss of employment. In addition to my financial struggles, I was in the middle of a horrific legal matter in family court surrounding custody of my child. Erin was one of few silver linings that I had throughout this hard time in my life, an absolute Godsend! Through the duration of my case, Erin and Mike went back and forth with claims through the EEOC for sexual harassment and gender discrimination and claims with the NLRB for wrongful termination and retaliation. This woman literally put in her blood, sweat, and tears into resolving my legal matters with my previous employer. She accommodated my schedule, making herself available in late evening hours, no email or phone call went without response. She worked around the clock to ensure that my questions were answered and I was informed and updated on the progress of my case. Nearly 10 months later, to the day, I am happy to say that Erin and her Firm were able to reach a settlement with my previous employer and I can finally put all this behind me. I pray that I never find myself in a similar situation with a future employer but, if I do, I can rest assured that I will be in good hands with Erin Hertzog and the staff at Aiken Schenk Hawkins & Ricciardi. She is an absolutely amazing attorney and the integrity of both her and the Firm, far exceeded my expectations!

Great communication, very professional
I used Erin for two cases, which ended up being related. I also recommended her to a relative. Erin is incredibly hard working and professional. She was very thorough in her research and in working on my defense. I always felt like I could trust her and always felt informed as to what was happening in my case. Erin would update me even when no action was necessary, just so I knew current information. My case was incredibly involved and detailed and highly complex, but Erin worked to understand my business and the entire situation. I have felt like I can count on Erin and appreciate her knowledge of law and the calming effect she has. She feels like a friend and confidant and I am very grateful for her hard work and long hours spent on my behalf!

Erin Hertzog will not disappoint!! Worth every penny!
I have used Erin several times for various legal representation needs over the past few years and I highly recommend her. She is in an expert in all types of employment and business-related legal issues and she provides competent, objective advice and has solutions for resolving even the most complex problems. She is very savvy and innovative and knows how to get results. Erin is the type of attorney who goes above and beyond in her representation and always keeps the best interests of her client in mind. She is very honest and will never advise you spend money on an attorney if it is not necessary. All of my experiences with Erin have been positive and the results have been favorable. I refer all my friends and family to Erin whenever they need an employment and labor or business attorney.
