Erin's Story

Erin’s interest in immigration law came from her own interests in travel and living abroad. After graduating from college, Erin spent several years living and working in Africa. She served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Madagascar, where she taught English and volunteered with a free legal aid center. This experience inspired Erin to attend law school, where she focused on international and immigration law.

Erin is a graduate of Boston University School of Law.  Erin worked as a  research assistant in the Asylum and Human Rights Clinic of Boston University, where she specialized in asylum and removal defense. She also worked in rural Sierra Leone and  drafted legislation to improve labor conditions in diamond mines. Erin worked in Geneva, Switzerland with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, where she monitored and evaluated States' implementation and adherence to international obligations via the treaty body mechanisms. She also helped clients at the Irish International Immigrant Center with family-based petitions, permanent residence , and naturalization applications prior to joining Clark Lau LLC.

Erin is excited to be a part of the Clark Lau team. Erin enjoys working with clients on both non-immigrant and immigrant work-related visas. From her own years of living and working abroad, Erin understands the uncertainties and complications that come with foreign employment. Erin believes in providing an individualized approach to every immigration matter and works to ensure that every client understands the immigration process from beginning to end. Outside of practicing law, Erin is an avid reader and enjoys visiting her hometown of Chicago.
