"As chief legal officer of a portfolio of steel companies, Erin represented me in evaluating options for a distressed company. My needs were put first, and I was treated as a friend rather than a dollar amount. Erin was pragmatic, efficient, cost conscious, and always concerned with the best interests of my company. She has sharp intellect, vast experience with distressed companies, and a creative approach. I felt reassured and informed throughout the engagement. I would count on her again."
