Spotlight on Ohio’s Erin Eversole

Meet Erin Eversole! Erin is the Marketing and Client Development Senior Manager at Calfee, Halter & Griswold, and she serves as Vice-Chair of the LMA Ohio Local Steering Committee. Erin shares more about her career highlights, the best vacation she’s ever been on, what she’s currently reading, and more.

What do you enjoy most about being an LMA volunteer?

Everyone says the people, but it’s so true. I have been able to interact with so many people across the U.S. and have gained from their experiences and perspectives, and that’s something I never would have had without LMA.

What was the best vacation you’ve ever been on?

My husband and I took a river cruise through Europe, which coincided with my birthday. We started in the Netherlands, in the town where I was born (military brat), so it was neat being back in my birthplace DURING my birthday!

What book are you currently reading?

Daisy Jones and the Six — I couldn’t get into the TV adaptation so I figured I’d go right to the source! It gives strong Fleetwood Mac vibes which I love. Stevie Nicks is a queen.

Who was your top artist on Spotify Wrapped last year?

Always and forever will be the Killers, although my son is trying very hard to push it out with the Cars movie soundtrack!

Tell us something unique about your law firm or business.

They get to have me on their marketing team! Just kidding.

What’s one of your proudest accomplishments in your career?

When I started at my first law firm, fresh outta college, I totally bombed at the job. I guess what I am most proud of is that I took it upon myself to get better, grow/learn, and be the best legal BDer I could be, instead of letting past failures hold me back. I took a job and made it a career that I am proud of (even if my parents still don’t understand what I do!).

What’s the best career advice that someone has ever given you?

Something that took me a while to learn but has been invaluable: let things go like water off a duck’s back. In this industry, when things are on fire and tempers are just as hot, get your job done and don’t let it get to you personally. You’ll have a much better work/life balance and mindset when you can shake it off and move on.
