She is also a member of the following: National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA), both national and Indiana chapters; Probate, Trust and Real Property Section of the Indiana State Bar Association, Monroe County Bar Association; and Hoosier Hills Estate Planning Council.
Paige’s primary goals with her law practice are to provide quality services and establish meaningful relationships with clients and their families. She grew up in Southern Indiana near the Ohio River and has called Bloomington her home for over 20 years. Paige met her husband, Christian, in law school, and they live just east of town with their two adopted labrador retrievers, Lucy Bean and Josie. Paige currently serves a pro bono legal counsel for the Brown County Community Foundation. In her spare time, Paige enjoys hiking, reading, yoga and eating delicious meals cooked by her talented husband.

Erin is a native of Fort Wayne, and earned her BA from Indiana University in 1997, and MA from the University of Chicago in 1999. She spent ten years working first as an editor and freelance writer, and then as a management consultant, in St. Augustine, Florida. Her consulting work, involving planning and implementing complex procurements, contracts, and program management for utilities and government agencies, sparked her interest in the law, and she graduated magna cum laude from Florida Coastal School of Law in Jacksonville, Florida in 2012.
Bloomington has always held a special place in her heart, and in 2012, Erin and her family returned to Indiana. She focuses her law practice on business transactions and formations, contract review and drafting, small business needs, estate planning, estate and trust administration, commercial leasing and real estate. Her favorite aspect of practicing law is helping clients identify creative and effective solutions to their business and personal issues. Her background in consulting and as a co-founder of a small business, helps her take a broad view when considering her clients' legal needs and issues.
Erin is active in the community, serving as president in 2018-2019 of the Monroe County Bar Association, and serving on the board of the Bloomington Parks Foundation and Hoosier Hills Estate Planning Council.
