Erin Poland’s Reviews

Above and Beyond

Posted by anonymous January 14, 2021
Above and Beyond – Mrs. Poland has been a bright light in a pretty dark time. Dealing with custody issues and other orders that were necessary was a very scary time for me. While the case still continues, she has supported me and had my back through it all. She has made sure to keep in constant contact and always letting me know what is going on. She is compassionate and understands that this isn’t an easy process and explains every step that we could take to reach the goal. She cares about the best interest of children. I HIGHLY recommend reaching out to her for any legal issues that may arise.

Best lawyer I ever had

Best lawyer I ever had. I had Mrs. Poland for 2 chargers and she put me in a program that made them reduce the charges.

Compassionate and thorough Leader

Erin Poland and her team have been exceptionally helpful and detail-oriented throughout my current custody case. Although the case is ongoing, it’s clear to me that her dedication to her clients is the standard by which legal professionals should be measured. During face-to-face meetings, Erin covers key-points and checks for understanding to minimize the potential for confusion; during phone-calls, she does the same. Her staff clearly demonstrates the same character traits in both, matters of principle and matters of style. Although the “center of gravity” in her methods is moving towards the goal of her clients, she does not “sugar coat” the potential for unfavorable outcomes; always clear, concise, and to the point. Regardless of the outcome regarding my case, I know that Erin Poland and her team have selflessly applied their full attention to ensuring that a healthy upbringing for my child is made possible. If anyone in the Clarksville area is in need of legal counsel and/or representation, Erin Poland and her team will guide you with integrity and loyalty to both you and the law.

Friendly and efficient – Ms. Poland is very knowledgeable in her specific areas of law. She helped point me in the right direction regarding my divorce. Her staff is very friendly and knowledgeable as well. Rebecca Seay is great! They both made sure all my questions were answered and I got the best possible outcome! I’d recommend Ms. Poland to anyone in a heartbeat!

This woman will fight for you.

Ms. Poland worked on a criminal case for a family member. She was professional and kept lines of communication open about the case. We had a very satisfactory conclusion to the case. I would highly recommend her to anyone needing legal representation.

Knowledgeable, Professional and Great!

Ms. Poland was very candid and kind about my situation and took the time to really explain all my options. She worked to get me the best possible outcome and am extremely grateful for her help. Her staff was excellent and either always answered the phone or returned calls in a timely manner.






Ms. Poland really dug in for my child when facing very serious criminal charges.  She never gave up and went after and got the very best results for us.

Erin is a great lawyer.

Erin is a great lawyer.

Erin represented me on a dui and was very professional but aggressive in court.  She made the witness look dumb and did it in a way that the judge though so to.

Ms. Poland is the very best juvenile attorney in Clarksville.
