Erika’s entire practice is focused on counseling insurers on complex coverage and other insurance related matters at both the claim stage and in litigation. She concentrates her insurance coverage practice on personal, commercial and professional lines of insurance and handles coverage matters in the areas of business liability, homeowners and renters liability, underinsured/uninsured motorist claims, mass tort, construction, environmental and professional liability.
Erika also routinely counsels and represents insurers regarding extra-contractual and bad faith claims. Erika’s practice involves providing coverage opinions, negotiating coverage disputes at the pre-litigation stage, handling all aspects of coverage litigation on behalf of insurance companies and participating in settlement negotiations and mediations.
When Erika is not in the office, she enjoys spending time with her husband and three young children. She is also active with Junior Achievement, a nationwide program that helps students see the connection between what they learn in school and the real world, with an emphasis on money management.
