Erin Ward-Dugan is the Managing Partner of Consulting Services and Co-Managing Partner of the firm’s Long Beach office.

Erin came to the organization with experience in workers compensation claims and all areas of workers compensation litigation. Upon earning her law degree, Erin began her career as an adjuster with California’s largest insurance company, State Fund. Subsequently she moved into private practice, representing both applicants and defendants in all areas of workers compensation litigation. She was rapidly promoted to supervising attorney, responsible for training and overseeing all new attorneys.

She joined ATB in 2008 and was selected to serve on several of the firm’s most prominent client panels. She quickly became a favorite among clients, who valued her attentive and innovative file handling, communication skills and ability to identify opportunities to best manage and mitigate client exposure. Erin was recognized as a rising leader at Brundo, Testan, Novell & JImenez and promoted to Partner in 2011.

As a result of her skill and unrivaled results, Erin was selected to become the Managing Partner of Consulting Services in 2013. In this role, Erin oversees services to a number of ATB’s largest employer clients. She is responsible for understanding the nuances and expectations of each program and strategically managing the firm’s resources to ensure that as a firm, we deliver optimal program results. She ensures best practices, oversees project management, claim reviews and closure projects. She is frequently engaged for operational assessments, litigation management strategy sessions and litigation reduction projects.

In addition to her varied consulting responsibilities, Erin continues to actively litigate cases and co-manages the firm’s largest office in Long Beach.
