Born in Pomona, California, Erin joined Segar & Sciortino in August of 2004 after clerking with the firm during her last year of law school and became a Partner in 2014. Erin attended SUNY Brockport where she was on the Dean’s list and graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Psychology in 2001. Erin then earned her Juris Doctorate from the University at Buffalo Law School in May of 2004.

Erin has lived in busy and diverse Southern California, very rural agricultural Central New York, and now here in Rochester, a place she is proud to call home and to show off to visitors. These experiences inform her work-life and allow her to form close bonds with all kinds of people. “The best part of my job is meeting and helping so many different people. I hope that my ability to listen and to answer questions during a stressful time in my client’s lives provides some measure of relief and comfort.”

During law school Erin worked with the Buffalo Public Interest Law Program (BPILP) in organizing its 2003 charity auction and was awarded a BPILP fellowship that year. The BPILP fellowship is a grant awarded to law students who demonstrate a continuing dedication to charitable service. Erin was also competitively selected as an associate editor to the Buffalo Human Rights Law Review where she helped to edit articles for publication. Erin also flexed her oral advocacy skills in the Desmond Memorial Moot Court competition.

Erin credits her father, Bruce, as the person who has had the most influence on her life. “My dad encourages me, no matter what I want to do. He firmly believes that anything can be accomplished with hard work and dedication. My dad has inspired me to accomplish all that I can.”

Erin lives in the City of Rochester with her husband and their two children. She enjoys reading, traveling, interior design, and water color painting.
