Erin Ann Grudzinski

Associate Attorney
Crystal Lake, Illinois

Erin graduated from Loyola University Chicago School of Law after serving in the United States Air Force as a distinguished intelligence professional for almost a decade and receiving her undergraduate degree in Criminal Justice from University of Maryland University College.

After moving to Illinois with her veteran husband and two children to attend law school, she was twice elected to serve as the President of Loyola’s National Security Law Association and was a founding member of her law school’s Veteran and Military Law Society.

Passionate in her dedication to family and veteran advocacy, Erin volunteered at the John Marshall Veteran’s Legal Service Clinic assisting in diversionary programs for veterans charged with federal petty offenses and working with veterans wrongly denied their veterans benefits. She also worked with the Illinois Department of Veterans’ Affairs Office of General Counsel where she provided legislative proposal recommendations aimed at promoting quality of life for Illinois veterans and their families. 

As a child of military veterans and a veteran herself, Erin is intimately familiar with the unique stressors and sacrifices of military life and the challenges facing military families and their relatives.

Erin’s professional and personal experiences make her a compassionate and dedicated advocate for her clients focused on representing their interests with passion and integrity.
