Ethics/reinstatement My husband was a lawyer who referred cases to a law firm which gave him referral fees. I was a lawyer as well but I became inactive several years ago, When my husband passed away, there were many remaining cases that he had referred but had not been settled. The firm said I could receive a portion of those fees but only if I was reinstated as a lawyer. Their theory was that you cannot pay referral fees to a non-lawyer, which is usually the rule. I called Erin Joyce who immediately said those fees were an asset of his estate and that I did not need to be reinstated. She wrote me a comprehensive legal memo to that effect which I presented to the firm. I received the fees (they insisted on a lesser rate) without being reinstated. Erin Joyce and her firm were thorough and communicated with me to be sure they had a full understanding of the facts. They were extremely helpful in tho comprehensive legal memo they sent to me so that I received what was rightfully mine, I highly recommend her firm to anyone with similar issues.
Amazing Advocate Erin Joyce is an amazing lawyer and advocate. Every attorney and legal professional on her team are highly skilled at their jobs. I felt truly heard and my case was handled better than I could have imagined. I highly recommend the Erin Joyce Firm!
Representation I thought Erin and her team were knowledgeable, supportive, efficient and ethical.
Having to deal with the State Bar and its policies can be a nightmare. Having Erin and her team on your side can give you some peace of mind. Hiring Erin's office is money well spent.

Your license is at risk, so ensure you have the best representation from a former State Bar prosecutor before sending any response to an investigator or responding to formal charges leveled by the State Bar. You cannot make an informed decision without good advice. Call Erin now.
