NJL People: Erin S. Conlin

Erin has a wealth of experience litigating employment claims, including single-plaintiff discrimination, whistleblower, and retaliation matters as well as large wage-and-hour class actions. She’s a go-to resource for complex employment trials, as she’s able to quickly adapt to any situation. Erin also uses her litigation experience to counsel clients to prevent matters from going to court.

Erin’s adaptability and quick-thinking make her an asset for “drop-in” trials. She adeptly steps in to assess and strategize, giving the matter the best chance for success. Erin’s organizational skills—stemming in part from several years as a legal assistant and paralegal—allows her to anticipate and focus on what comes next.
