We have total faith and trust in Erica Strader. She was referenced to us by the former lawyer presenting our son, we only wish that we would have had Erica's representation from the very start. She was not able to undo some poor decisions from our former representation, but she was able to move forward in a more productive and fair manner. Her professional and caring attitude regarding our son's case was refreshing and appreciated. She was a true advocate looking out for his best interests. If I ever need legal assistant, Erica Strader is the first person I would call.

Excellent Lawyer
Erica fought my case for me and my child hundreds of miles away. I have never felt so confident, in knowing that Erica was working her hardest to ensure the best out come for me and my children. She is amazing, I cannot thank her enough! I never had a doubt in my mind that we wouldn't prevail! I would highly recommend Erica!

Thank You Erica
Erica helped resolve a complicated situation into one that worked smoothly for both parties all the while working under a tight timeline. She went above and beyond to provide excellent service! Thank you Erica!

I tried using Erica for my divorce. Erica would transpose information that I would send to her for example I told her that my ex-husband paid $200 Less in child support so she Drew up a document that said he was only paying $200 in child support. So then I would have to have her fix these things which would charge me money every time it went to review. I sent a 14-page facts and it took her over a month to draw the information where there were multiple things that she misconstrued. Only dragging my divorce out longer I ended up not using Erica to finalize my divorce and using my ex-husband's attorney to basically be a mediator to finalize my divorce because she was so awful.
