What Makes Us Unique
Erin McClarty, PLLC. has two focuses:
Accessibility: Why pay for advice that's hard to use? Or worse, advice that's hard to understand? At EMPLLC we deliver advice in easy to read and easy to understand formats. Using mind-maps, info-graphics, charts and other visuals to communicate difficult concepts. Or including "instructions" in legal documents, where we define terms and highlight hazards for the client. See examples of our work here.
Affordability: At EMPLLC we favor low-cost, fixed fee models. This way the client knows the expense, can budget for costs and ask questions without penalties. But we also offer hourly rates, and can accommodate payment arrangements. Learn more about the affordable services we offer here.

"Erin was engaged as a speaker for NetSquared Houston to give us some legal insights on the cross section of technology and nonprofits - she was outstanding! Erin really knows her stuff. She put together a great, informative presentation and also did a wonderful job answering audience questions. She was able to communicate legal concepts to a nonlegal audience in an accessible and engaging way. I highly recommend her as a speaker!"
