Born and bred with an endless passion for pro bono and volunteer work, Erin Nebbia recognized that becoming a lawyer would allow her to make a bigger impact on the lives and livelihood of those who need advocacy. Fast forward, today she practices in the firm’s Complex Litigation, Pharmaceutical Products, and Toxic Torts & Products Liability groups, and was a member of the firm’s 2021 Summer Associate Class.
Working well under pressure and flexible in a deadline-driven environment, Erin supports her team and advises clients with respect to coverage issues arising out of product liability claims, workplace exposure to noise and hazardous substances, and environmental matters.
She earned her J.D. from Georgetown Law, where she was a member of the Trial Advocacy Division of the Georgetown Law Barrister’s Council, and the recipient of the Dean’s Certificate, awarded to a graduating student in recognition of special and outstanding service to the Georgetown Law community.
During law school, Erin served as a Legal Extern at the Office of the District of Columbia Attorney General, where she drafted and edited legal memoranda in child neglect proceedings, and participated in witness prep. She also served as a Law Clerk for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Western District of New York, where she briefed oppositions to compassionate release motions regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, conducted research on federal civil, criminal, and appellate cases, and appeared on behalf of the U.S. in court proceedings pursuant to the New York State student practice order.
Erin graduated, cum laude, with a B.A. in Journalism & Criminology, from the University of Maryland, and was in the Criminal Justice Departmental Honors Thesis Program where she wrote on the “Impact of Prison Architecture on Recidivism Post-Incarceration.”
Erin unwinds from the rigors of law by taking her Golden Doodle, Finn, for city walks, or exploring the Washington, D.C. food scene as a self-described foodie from Buffalo, NY. You might also find her hitting the slopes on skis or a snowboard when the snow flies.
