Personal Quote:

The process of divorce, like most unexpected challenges and opportunities for personal growth that we face in life, becomes less difficult by attentiveness to one’s own needs and emotional health as well as having a circle of people to support you throughout the process.


Two decades ago, Erin Pounders thought she wanted to go to law school. She began to work at a boutique family law firm in preparation for her future schooling.  The senior partner stuck her in the file room and after a month passed, had her working on deposition summaries, legal research, pleadings, correspondence, and, of course, discovery. After this apprenticeship, the partner made Erin their paralegal, and law school was forgotten, as she loved the role and work of a paralegal.  As a writer, English major, and avid reader, the drafting of documents soon became her favorite task. After five years with her first firm, her career moved on to other firms and to include other specialties of litigation as well as trust and estate planning.  However, family law is by far her favorite, as it allows an opportunity to be more client-facing and assist clients through a challenging process.
