Erin I. Stout,
Attorney at Law
Erin’s career goal is to serve her community by supporting clients in their most difficult moments. Her practice and focus during law school have been centered around dispute resolution because she believes that her role as attorney requires an understanding of interpersonal dynamics in addition to legal concepts. Participation in Mediation training, Dispute Systems Design, and the Domestic Violence Clinic taught her how to best assist in resolving differences, practice creative problem-solving, and balance empathy and professionalism in clients’ sensitive situations.
Erin studied law at the University of Oregon where she wrote a publishable article on plea bargain reform as a member of Oregon Law Review, created wills for those who otherwise could not afford them at Wills for the Underserved, and assisted on a wide array of important issues including local job creation, river protection, and decreasing houselessness as an extern at the Port of Portland. Erin received her baccalaureate from Antioch University majoring in Environmental Studies with a focus on sustainability. Her passion for advocating for the underrepresented began in her youth and spans protection of environmental resources, abandoned animals, and adults and children in need.
Beyond her professional ambition, Erin prioritizes spending time with her family by baking with her sisters whenever possible. Erin loves to watch as much football and soccer as possible and can be found floating the river and paddle boarding on nearby lakes with her friends and tripod Schnoodle (schnauzer-poodle), Andy.
