Erin Brockovich is helping people who have been adversely impacted by environmental issues, pharmaceuticals, medical devices, and personal injury. Since the release of the 2000 motion picture by the same name, Erin has served as an advocate after her work as a legal clerk. She was instrumental in building a case against the Pacific Gas and Electric Company of California in 1993. Since then, Erin has become a household name as a trusted advocate for individuals who have suffered a harm. Over time, Erin realized that she could use her notoriety to spread positive messages of personal empowerment and to encourage others to stand up and make a difference. Because of her fighting spirit, Erin has become the champion of countless women and men. She is this generation’s “Dear Abby” and in fact receives thousands of “Dear Erin” letters and emails each year from people who are begging for help and support in their own personal struggles. As President of Brockovich Research & Consulting, she is currently involved in numerous environmental projects. Erin is one of the most requested speakers on the international lecture circuit and travels the world for personal appearances. Erin Brockovich is a true American hero whose icon status and “stick-to-it-iveness” only fuels her determination to expose injustice and lend her voice to those who do not have one.
