Erika is amazing. When I first divorced, I signed the judgment without an attorney (big mistake). Years later, when my ex asked for more, I found Erika. Over many months, she patiently and knowledgeably guided me from initial advice on my rights all the way through a three hour court appearance that ended in a decision far better than what I had offered on my own to avoid court. The entire time she was incredibly considerate about being as efficient with her time (low cost) as possible. I have had other attorneys bill me for time they spent talking about their childhood - Erika is the opposite of that, but at the same time absolutely answered every question I had extremely thoroughly and promptly. The entire process was very stressful, but Erika went above and beyond providing support and motivation to keep going. I highly recommend her.

Erika was amazing from the first call through the court dates and till the end. She was able to provide sound advice and direction for our sticky custody case. She went above and beyond for us, even when the other sides attorney left to tend to another case she managed to navigate an agreement. Drew it up right there and had it filed for us. Talk about amazing!! After everything has come to a close for us, we can't praise her enough. A truly hard working, honest, caring attorney. We would recommend you call her immediately!

Erika literally jumped through hoops to make my divorce happen smoothly. I was unable to find my wife (as she had moved off with another man to another state), and Erika diligently found her, served her, and closed out my divorce in record time. She responds very quickly, handles everything right away, and kept me informed every step of the way. I hope I never require her services again, but if I do I will be going back to her.

I wholeheartedly endorse this lawyer. In working with Ms. Scheideman on a family law matter, I have found her to be very intelligent and skilled in the area of family law. The consummate professional, she has always advocated for her client in aggressive, yet appropriate manner. She is receptive to settlement, while still advocating her client's interest. She is certainly a worthy opponent.
