Portland attorney and Gevurtz Menashe Associate Erica Aquadro

Erica Aquadro

Erica enjoys helping people find resolution in their lives. Whether she's dealing with a high conflict custody case or difficult property, business and support issues, Erica brings her keen ability to ask the right questions, listen with an open mind, and use that information to form practical advice and guidance through her legal counsel. Guided by her people-centered compassionate nature, Erica is the ultimate team player helping clients understand the complex legal process, define their own futures, and ultimately bring peace of mind to each person or family she has the opportunity to counsel. 

When she’s not working, you’ll likely find Erica hiking with her husband and kids, reading, or traveling. Her favorite words to live by are guided by the former first lady, “When they go low, we go high.”
