Fantastic, professional, effective
I hired Aurelia for a wrongful termination lawsuit. Selected her from a recommendation from a friend who had hired her. At first, I paid her hourly, and then we switched to a contingency fee basis. Throughout a multi-year relationship, she was consistently professional, smart, even-keel, grounded and gave me great advice. Ultimately, the case settled via mediation before going to court. I am very happy with the results of the settlement, as well as how Aurelia handled the entire process. I have hired a few other lawyers throughout the years, and Aurelia is the best! Highly recommended.

Just what I needed!
I had a small issue that required me too seek out an attorney with experience in Employment and Labor law. I saw Aurelia with a 10/10 rating here on Avvo so I decided to reach out to her and setup a consultation. I hired Aurelia to represent me after that consultation. She was very thorough and moved fast to draft some correspondence I needed and even made a point to keep open communication with me through the holiday season. She provided me with the ability to be taken seriously and not be brushed off by my employer. Without Aurelia I would have made little no progress resolving my issue. Thank you!

Best experience with an attorney
Aurelia helped me with a dispute with my employer. She was extremely open to answering questions and devoting time to my case and made me feel well represented, her billing was reasonable, and most importantly she kept my needs as the most important factor in every decision. I'm a physician and in my profession that would be described as "patient centered". I obtained a very favorable outcome thanks to her. Highly recommended.

An Exceptional Litigator, with Disarming Sincerity
After being refused by multiple other firms who felt they were out of their depth and unable to represent us in what was a very hostile and aggressive lawsuit, we were referred to McGaughey-Erickson, and from the very first conversation we knew we were in good hands. Not only is Aurelia kind, fair, straightforward, and an absolute pleasure to work with, but she is attentive to detail, confident, and firm in the courtroom— exactly the kind of strategic player you want to have in your corner. Even in the face of unscrupulous and underhanded tactics, she is graceful, succinct and articulate, and works with careful precision and unwavering integrity. Being our first legal entanglement, Aurelia was exceedingly patient in helping us navigate an over-complicated case, repeatedly going above and beyond during preparation, hitting the ground running ahead of an accelerated timeline for proceedings, and devoting considerable time to a grueling mediation process. At a point where we had lost all faith in a legal system that could be wielded as a weapon against us by those with deeper pockets, Aurelia arrived and shepherded us through the storm, with unprecedented cool, calm, and collected authority. Aurelia is a beacon of that romanticized notion of legal justice we all hope still exists in the world, and I can’t imagine anyone else defending us with such intelligence, agility, and sincerity.
