Erin was so nice and helpful looking over my drafted contract for my new business! She was not condescending (to someone who knows very little about contract law) and helped me go through every article efficiently and effectively. So glad I made the decision to reach out to Chelle Law for this one, thanks guys!

I had an amazing experience with Chelle Law, specifically Attorney Erin Howlett and Katie Flannigan. Erin was very thorough and went through every detail of my contract step by step. She was happy to go over her meeting time to make sure she covered every part of my contract. She pointed out several areas of concern and after having them adjusted by my employer, I feel more confident in my new job.

Chelle Law was super helpful with my job contract review! I found them on Google because they were highly rated. I needed a review in 2 business days and they were able to accommodate me for a very reasonable price! I worked with lawyer Katie Flannigan who was very thorough and knowledgable and very kind. After working with her, I felt confident to move forward with my new job and would highly recommend them to my friends and family!

Erin Howlett was amazing. I needed a contract review for my orthodontic associate agreement and didn't know how to go about it. She helped me through the whole process and explained things really well. I could tell she has the experience and expertise needed for dental employment contracts regardless of specialty. The price was great too. I definitely recommend using Chelle Law and if you happen to work with Erin you will be very happy.

I had the opportunity to speak with Erin today for my first dental associate position after serving 5 years in the Air Force. She was thorough with every line of my contract as well as addressing all my concerns. I feel she went above and beyond to give me her expert advice and aid me throughout my contract. 100% recommend her for any provider looking for an awesome attorney who knows her stuff.

I worked with Erin on a contract review. She was very prompt in responding, and booked for a call to discuss my offer letter in two days, and ear laws even available to meet at night after work. Would work with her again!
