Whether your legal needs are transactional or litigative, real estate, estate planning or business based, rely on Erwin Law to ensure your best interests are served, personally and professionally.


We Stand in Solidarity

Erwin Law stands in solidarity with Black Americans and the Black Lives Matter movement in the fight to end the systemic racism that plagues our country.

As the Founder of this diverse Firm, I have, for more than 25 years, made it our priority to hire and treat all races, genders, religions and classes with equality.

And yet, after much thoughtful reflection, I know that our Firm can do more to actively and proactively stand against racial injustice and inequity.

Going forward, Erwin Law is committed to listening, learning, and speaking up for the kind of systemic change that will ensure the end of the abuse of power which resulted in the murder of George Floyd and the too many other Black Americans who lost their lives unjustly.

We are currently researching how best to utilize our Firm for this fight and will keep you updated as our plan evolves.

In the interim, we will continue our current support of the nonprofit organization My Block. My Hood. My City., and commit to doubling our delivery of pro bono services to small, minority-owned businesses.

Again, let me firmly reiterate that Erwin Law will continue to make it our business to fight for justice and equality, and to keep to our promise of being and staying aware, to taking action, and to making positive changes as we move forward.
