Erica O. Nolan's legal career is distinguished by her unwavering dedication and innovative approach to her civil litigation practice. 

Erica's civil litigation work spans a wide range of areas, including employment disputes, business torts, insurance disputes, administrative proceedings, and contract disputes. Her ability to navigate these diverse legal issues underscores her versatility and depth as a litigator.

Erica frequently second-chairs trials and hearings and has first-chaired one. Her substantial preparatory work includes taking and defending depositions, preparing direct and cross-examinations, navigating discovery disputes, and managing trial exhibits.

A cornerstone of Erica's practice is her representation of Emergency Medical Services (EMS) providers, where she has made significant contributions. In Connecticut, EMS providers must obtain Certificates of Need for new or expanded services, often involving contentious hearings before the Department of Public Health. Erica has excelled in this niche area, managing complex hearings and advising both providers and municipalities on their EMS systems. Her acute understanding of the nuanced field of EMS law and its issues make her a leading figure in this challenging legal landscape.

One of Erica’s notable clients in this area of practice is Trinity Health of New England EMS, for which she served as first and second chair in several contested cases, including a proceeding regarding a competitor's application to expand its emergency response operations. She has also worked on a federal discrimination lawsuit in which a minority-owned home healthcare agency brought suit against a state contractor after receiving discriminatory requests by Medicaid home healthcare recipients not to send staff of particular races and/or national origins.

Also significant was Erica’s role as a judicial law clerk at the Connecticut Appellate Court to the Honorable Socrates H. Mihalakos, William J. Sullivan, Joseph H. Pellegrino, and Dennis G. Eveleigh, Judge Trial Referees.

In addition to her legal practice, Erica is actively involved in community activities. She coaches a middle school mock trial team, a role she has embraced passionately since participating in mock trial programs from fifth grade through college.
