When first meeting Erica, she was very concerned with helping me and collecting as much information as possible. Through out the experience she was easy to reach and responsive . She is in it to genuinely help you yet very professional . Erica is also reliable and makes you feel comfortable. She has a calm, collective , amazing personality and I would recommend her to anyone!


Choosing Erica to represent me, during this trying time was the best decision I could have made. Erica is fierce & confident, yet down to earth. Erica is extremely knowledgeable in her field & shows the upmost compassion. She made me feel comfortable & had my full trust. She knows what she is doing, & will do everything she can for you. Erica made this trying time bearable & a whole lot easier to deal with. I would highly recommend Erica!


What was a scary and unknown territory to me, all of my questions and doubts went away. I felt so comfortable and confident that I never had a restless night or worried about what was to be. I was kept informed and explained every aspect of what was to come or what may come, nothing was a surprise. My experience and end result were more than I had ever expected. Erica’s professionalism, knowledge, compassion, efficiency, and conviction in what she does is truly amazing. I cannot recommend her enough.


I was in a unique situation where I had multiple harassment issues against a very large multi-national company. Erica was proficient, detailed and professional in the handling of my case throughout the entire process. More than that, Erica’s confidence and encouragement throughout the case helped keep me focused on the end goal, which was to bring justice to me and others in the company who experienced the same issues. She is very smart, direct and motivated. Above all, she was able to get me the results I was looking for and relatively quickly. I highly recommend her for anyone experiencing workplace harassment issues.


I couldn’t have asked for a better attorney for my case! Erica knows exactly what she’s doing and worked very hard for me. Made me comfortable speaking to her about my case and let
the other attorney know she meant business! I would recommend Erica in a heartbeat and would go right back to her without thinking twice if I ever needed to. Thanks for everything!


When I met Erica I was in a vulnerable emotional state having just been fired from my job, for what I believed to be unfair and illegal reasons. I met with Erica in her office and told her my story. Erica listened to me and more importantly, heard me. She agreed that I had been unfairly treated and agreed to take my case. Erica told me to take care of everything else in my life and SHE would take care of this. An overwhelming sense of relief came over me. A huge weight had been lifted. I now had an Advocate. Over the following months Erica fought for me and kept me posted every step of the way. We made decisions TOGETHER. When all was said and done I was vindicated. The financial settlement was wonderful, but the real victory was the return of my self esteem. I was so emotionally weakened by what had transpired at my job and Erica Shnayder stepped in for me. She fought for me. She gave to me a gift far greater than a financial settlement. She got back for me my self worth. I will always be grateful to her. I will always be indebted to her.


From the first phone call, Erica was always very encouraging and realistic about my age discrimination case. She kept me informed of progress on a regular basis, I was very intimidated about pursuing a case against a big company, but Erica was always encouraging, made me feel comfortable and believed in me. She is professional without being stuffy and knowledgeable without the superior air. Erica did a great job for me as a lawyer, i was very satisfied with the outcome of my case. She is also an awesome human being. I would highly recommend her!


Very professional, knowledgeable and approachable attorney. I was looking for a lawyer, called her firm over the phone and within a few minutes she understood my situation and encouraged me to pursue my case. She helped me to settle my claim with terms that were very favorable for me. An excellent communicator and a great listener, always called to inform me about the status of my case and returned my calls. It took two years to settle my case and she has always been there when I needed her opinion or recommendation. I highly recommend Erica Shnayder for her honesty, personality and professionalism.
