Erin is a civil trial lawyer. During her 27 years of practice, she has focused on representing lawyers, insurance agents and brokers, and other types of professionals in defending against errors and omissions claims. She also represents lawyers in disciplinary matters, having recently completed a four-year term on the Massachusetts Board of Bar Overseers, and advises lawyers on ethics issues. Erin understands that for a professional, reputation is everything, and she will work towards a resolution that best protects that interest, whether that means an early and confidential settlement or a defense verdict from a jury. Erin speaks regularly on professional liability and ethics topics, and writes a regular column on ethics for Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly. Erin co-chairs the firm’s Professional Liability group, and also serves as the firm’s Risk Management Partner.
Erin also handles business litigation and insurance coverage matters, and defends manufacturers against product liability claims. She is an experienced appellate advocate, having argued before the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court, the Massachusetts Appeals Court, and the United States Court of Appeal for the First Circuit.
Erin co-chairs the firm’s pro bono committee. In that role, she connects the firm’s lawyers with various opportunities to serve low-income clients, including those referred by the Women’s Bar Foundation, Veterans Legal Services, the Victim Rights Law Center, Massachusetts Advocates for Children, the New England Food Hub, and the Lawyers’ Clearinghouse. Erin lives in Arlington with her husband, also a lawyer, and multiple dogs. They are empty-nesters, with their three children either in college or officially off the payroll, but they still manage occasional family trips and dinners (as long as they pick up the check).
