Erica Erwin

Associate Attorney

“Seeing me before him,
The enemy attacks,
But by that time
I am already standing
Safely behind him.”

– Morihei Ueshiba

“The opposite of good is not evil, the opposite of good is indifference. In a free society where terrible wrongs exist, some are guilty, but all are responsible.” 

– Abraham Joshua Heschel

Born in sunny South Florida, Erica earned a BA in Sociology and Anthropology in 2011 from the University of Pennsylvania. From there, she trekked west, first to Ohio to work on political campaigns, and then to Oregon, where she earned her JD from Lewis & Clark Law School in 2016. Drawing on her core values of helping the community and forging personal connections, she left transactional litigation behind in favor of family law, first as a staff attorney for St. Andrew Legal Clinic and now as an associate on the team at Laidlaw & Laidlaw. Away from the office, Erica can be found puttering in her community garden plot, experimenting with fermentation, and playing in the park with her son.
