About

Full disclosure: I didn’t go to law school to get rich. I went to law school because I was tired of feeling like the loser on the wrong side of the fine print. Since graduating magna cum laude from Seattle University School of Law in 2010, my practice has focused mainly on environmental matters, land use, business issues, and general civil litigation. 

The Law Office of Erica A. Doctor is a Tacoma law firm with a focus on environmental law, environmental regulatory compliance, land use, property development, and disputes arising over property use or ownership. I practice law the way I would want my attorney to practice, by combining practical, realistic advice with patient, determined advocacy. I work with my clients to understand their goals and other factors influencing their lives, and I make sure they know what’s happening every step of the way. I don’t charge to help people understand whether they have a case, and I take the time to walk people through the processes at play in their situation. I’m here to help. 

My passion remains helping families, individuals, and small business owners get through whatever occurrence has brought them into the world of law or has necessitated the need for legal expertise. I help my clients understand the rules of the game, make a plan, and manage risk so they can get on with their lives. I stand up for my client when they’re not sure what their rights are, or don’t feel they have the voice necessary to stand up for themselves. 

If you think you might need my help, please contact me to set up a free consultation. If I can’t help you, I can point you toward one of my colleagues.
