Erin likes helping clients navigate complex situations relating to social assistance, disability and aging.
After she started working at Goddard Gamage LLP part-time during university, Erin was increasingly drawn to the firm’s focus on legal issues with very real consequences for vulnerable persons. The daughter of a geriatrician and a bioethicist, Erin has long been interested in issues of mental capacity, end-of-life decision making, and public policy with respect to both.
Erin is the firm’s litigation law clerk. She has completed the Institute of Law Clerks of Ontario’s provincial examinations in Litigation and Estates, achieving honours on both. She provides litigation support to the lawyers in the firm in the areas of estate, guardianship and power of attorney disputes.
Erin’s role also includes firm accessibility. Erin feels passionately that legal services should be as accessible as possible to clients with both visible and invisible disabilities. She has facilitated improvements to the physical office space for clients with hearing and vision loss.
Erin holds a Bachelor of Arts (Hons) in Health Studies and Ethics, Society & Law from the University of Toronto. She volunteers regularly at The 519, plays soccer, and enjoys watching documentaries and lounging with her senior cat in their spare time.
