Erica has vast experience in the field of medical malpractice litigation. Before joining the Lynch Law Firm, PC, Erica was a partner at a law firm in Morristown where she worked as a defense medical malpractice attorney. Now working for those injured by malpractice, she has the insight, tenacity, and focus it takes to be the best advocate possible. Her strength lies in her compassion and dedication to her clients. She has written several appellate briefs including one resulting in an opinion published in the Appellate Division.
Erica’s interest in law and advocacy began at an early age. In middle school, she won an essay competition for the Daughters of the American Revolution. In high school, Erica served as a congressional page to the Honorable Rodney Frelinghuysen in the US House of Representatives.
After law school, she began her legal career as the law clerk to the Honorable Judge David B. Rand, Superior Court of New Jersey, Morris County Civil Division. She credits that experience and his mentorship for her acute insight of the justice system.
Erica is a proud graduate of Pope John XXIII High School in Sparta, NJ. She ran on their state championship cross country team and also raced on their ski team. She continued her education at the University of Delaware where she majored in Political Science and English, graduating early cum laude. While a law student, she worked in Providence, Rhode Island, at the Legal Assistance Clinic obtaining restraining orders and uncontested divorces. Erica earned her Juris Doctorate from Roger Williams Law School in Rhode Island.
Erica’s greatest joy is her family. She has always enjoyed skiing and golf with her parents and two brothers, Dane and Jay. She also loves travel, cooking and entertaining. She resides in Morris County in New Jersey with her husband, Jake, and their dog, Maeby.
