ABOUT

Before joining Practus, Erica was a Lead Legal Recruiter at Shelton & Steele LLC for over six years and specialized in the nationwide lateral movement of partners with portable books of business. In September of 2020, Erica was seconded to Practus on an exclusive retainer. She helped guide new candidates through the recruitment process with her expertise on the unique business model of Practus.  By December of 2021, Practus had grown its ranks by 57%.

Erica now joins the Practus Team full-time as their Recruiting Consultant. In this capacity, she lends her industry knowledge to help Practus further support their internal growth efforts and finds attorneys who would benefit from this modern economic model.  She also contributes to recruiting strategy and techniques and is supportive in the candidate interview process.  With a B.S. in Hospitality Management and a genuine people person at heart, Erica’s synergies with Practus translate through her work, effort, and results.

She enjoys volunteering, public speaking, attending business and networking mixers, reading, and playing competitive tennis in her spare time. A recent graduate of UNLV, Erica was a member of Alpha Delta Pi, mentioned on the UNLV website for her success hosting a business fundraiser for the NCCS, and has a taste for old-world wines. In the future, she plans on pursuing her Master’s in Luxury Management & Guest Experience at the Glion Institute of Higher Education in Switzerland.
