  • Brook Gwendolyn Meakins

I am always amazed by her skill at relating to clients on a personable, comforting level - while at the same time, exercising command of the subject matter. She is a tireless advocate, and a balanced, grounded individual.

  • John Douglas Winer

    Erika is an ambitious, strategic and experienced lawyer who has worked for my firm in Northern California's San Francisco Bay Area, Winer, McKenna and Burritt, LLP for the last several years. Specializing in employment and sexual harassment matters, Erika has taken on major corporations and obtained outstanding results for her clients. Erika is well known in the Bay Area legal community for her involvement in law organizations such as CAOC, ACCTLA, and CELA, as well as for her reputation as one of Super Lawyer's 'rising stars' and 'top attorneys'. Erika is passionate about helping others and is relentless in the courtroom. I would highly recommend her to anyone with an employment matter
