Erin is a partner with the firm, specializing in civil litigation, with a focus on representing clients involved with civil sexual abuse and institutional abuse claims. She is passionate about representing survivors and has been advocating for their legal rights since joining Jellinek Law Office in 2011. Erin understands this is a challenging area that requires compassion, dedication, and strong advocacy skills. She has handled many of these cases, both through the civil court system, and at the Criminal Injuries Compensation Board, in order to help survivors receive the compensation they deserve.

This allowed Erin to familiarize herself with defence tactics and has provided her with a unique perspective when negotiating and advocating on her clients’ behalf.
