Erin K. DeBoer
A native of Tidewater, Virginia, Erin is an attorney who specializes in appellate law, with a keen eye for researching novel legal issues and writing litigation briefs. Erin’s background as an attorney is unique—she has worked for nonprofits, in academia, and also in the judicial branch of government.
Erin earned a B.A. from Hillsdale College, summa cum laude. Thereafter, she spent two years in Washington, D.C., as a governmental affairs specialist for a nonprofit organization. Erin planned and executed events attended by members of congress and congressional staff; she wrote on legislative issues; she managed press releases; and she participated in legislative briefings. Ultimately, Erin’s desire to uphold justice and protect the rights of the vulnerable motivated her to attend law school.
Erin received her J.D., summa cum laude, from Regent University School of Law. During law school, Erin pursued her interest in constitutional law by becoming a Blackstone Fellow and working with Alliance Defending Freedom and the American Center for Law and Justice. Erin continued to enjoy writing and won the 1st Leroy R. Hassell, Sr. Writing Competition.
After graduating from law school, Erin served as a law clerk to the Hon. S. Bernard Goodwyn in the Supreme Court of Virginia. She then joined the faculty of Regent University School of Law, where she taught Legal Analysis, Research, and Writing, as a full-time faculty member and later served as an adjunct professor, teaching Appellate Advocacy and American Legal Systems and Writing. Erin worked several years as a legal consultant for a local law firm and, more recently, returned to the Supreme Court of Virginia to serve two more years as a law clerk.
The nearly four years that Erin worked for the Supreme Court of Virginia refined her interest in appellate law. She enjoyed seeing legal issues from the perspective of the Court and believes her vast experience in reading and analyzing appellate cases helps her assist clients in the appellate process. During her free time, Erin enjoys spending time with her husband and children, especially at the beach or lake.
