Immediately prior to joining the firm, Erica worked at boutique litigation firm Selendy & Gay PLLC in New York City, where she focused on trial and appellate matters involving bankruptcy fraud, civil RICO, antitrust, administrative law, and breach of contract claims arising out of the 2007-2008 financial and housing crisis. Erica was also an associate at K&L Gates LLP, in both the New York and Dubai offices, where she practiced international arbitration and litigation.

Erica graduated from the New York University School of Law, where she served as an Articles Editor on the New York University Law Review, was awarded the Albert Podell Prize for best brief during the Orison S. Marden Moot Court Competition, and earned the Vanderbilt Medal for outstanding contributions to the School of Law.

Before returning to private practice in 2018, Erica completed coursework in psychology at Columbia University, conducted decision-making research at the Center for Decision Sciences at Columbia Business School, and gained admission to the Ph.D. program in social psychology at New York University.
