LAW SCHOOL: University of Calgary
BAR ADMISSION: The Law Society of Ontario (LSO) – 2014
Erica is a personal injury lawyer, born and raised in Hamilton, Ontario. She attended the University of Waterloo, obtaining a Honours Bachelor of Science Degree in Science and Business, specializing in Biochemistry with a minor in Economics. After her undergraduate degree, she attended the University of Calgary where she earned a Masters of Science degree specializing in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.
After graduating, she took a brief hiatus to work at a prominent department store in Calgary, where she worked with wonderful people, surrounded by beautiful things, and enjoyed the “fun” of a retail environment. Before long, she decided to look to the future. Throughout her experience and her educational journey, she kept circling the field of law. With a background in science, Erica believed she could use her knowledge when reviewing client’s medical information and building a case. She returned to the University of Calgary and graduated with a Juris Doctor in 2013. Prior to joining Lamont Law, Erica articled at an insurance defence firm in Hamilton. Erica was called to the Bar in 2014.
She knew she would be a good fit at Lamont Law because Michael Lamont was not only her dad, but also her first employer. He believed in demonstrating a strong work ethic with his children, and she started answering the phones for the Hamilton law firm and running errands when she was 14 years old. She is trying to inspire the same work ethic with her three boys, who come to “work” on PA days.
Erica is a former elected counsel member of the Ontario Bar Association and formerly served a the Regional Director for the Central South Region. She also served as vice chair of the New Lawyers’ Subdivision of the Hamilton Law Association, a member of the Ontario Trial Lawyers Association and a member of the Advocates’ Society. Erica serves on the Board of Directors for Wayside House and is a past member of the Board of Directors for Dundas Valley School of Art and Food4Kids Ontario. Erica is a proud Hamiltonian and supports small businesses and charities in her local community.
Erica is a conscientious litigator who advocates for her clients while treating them, and their families, with compassion and respect. Her practice includes all areas of personal injury law including motor vehicle accidents, motorcycle accidents, pedestrian/car accidents, trucking accidents, bicycle accidents, slip and fall accidents, dog bites, dog attacks, and medical negligence. Additionally, Erica advocates for individuals who have been denied long term disability.
Erica advocates for those who have been injured due to no fault of their own, and family members of accident victims, as they attempt to deal with life changing circumstances such as catastrophic injuries, spinal cord injuries, brain injuries, fractures, scars, and other serious injuries, including mental illness, anxiety, and cognitive changes.
