She is Board Certified in Family Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, a certification that less than 1% of the attorneys in Texas hold. Erin is also a member of the Texas Academy of Family Law Specialists. Erin handles cases in all areas of domestic and family law, including divorce, custody, child support, grandparents’ rights, restraining and protection orders, collaborative law and modifications. Erin is also a certified family law mediator.

Ms. Bogdanowicz has had the pleasure of writing numerous articles for and speaking at continuing legal education courses provided by the State Bar of Texas in the area of family law. She has been named a Rising Star by Thomson Reuters Texas Super Lawyers in 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017 and as one of the top 10 family lawyers in Texas under the age of 40 by the National Association of Family Law Attorneys in 2014. She was named as one of the 10 Best in Client Satisfaction by the American Institute of Family Law Attorneys in 2016.

Ms. Bogdanowicz earned her law degree from Southern Methodist University’s Dedman School of Law. While there, she graduated with the honor of Order of Barristers, which is only awarded to 10 law school graduates from each institution each year. She was also on the Dean’s List, was the Managing Editor of the Science and Technology Law Review, sat on the Board of Advocates as its interscholastic director and was an active participant in the school’s mock trial program. Prior to law school, Ms. Bogdanowicz graduated summa cum laude from St. Edward’s University and obtained an undergraduate degree in political science.

When not representing area families, Ms. Bogdanowicz enjoys participating in numerous professional organizations.
