Erika began her career at the Denver Department of Human Services representing it in dependency and neglect cases. She then went on to work at other firms working on cases involving dissolution of marriage, post decree domestic relations matters, adoptions, and representing parents in dependency and neglect cases.
Erika has extensive experience both in and out of the courtroom. Erika strives reach settlements that allow her clients to move forward with confidence. She is passionate about finding solutions to complex problems while helping clients navigate the judicial system with respect, integrity, and compassion. When settlement is not possible, Erika is well prepared for litigation.
Erika’s experience working in dependency and neglect is a key asset for Erika’s domestic relations practice. At times, a high conflict divorce may result in involvement with the Department or Human Services; she is able to help clients navigate the complex child welfare system in order to mitigate the Department’s intrusion into the family.
During her free time, Erika enjoys skiing, cycling, and mountain biking.
