"As an undergraduate, I liked accounting but my goal was always to become a lawyer. I decided to take the CPA exam during my third year at law school, then sat for the Bar in North Carolina that summer. At Stewart Law, P.A., my professional education and experience combine as I take a comprehensive approach to our clients’ legal needs. I love being part of a firm that is clearly committed to raising the bar for delivering exceptional client service."

Erin lives in Dilworth with her husband Brad and daughter Clare.  She enjoys cooking, decorating and getting to know the neighbors.
