KARI ERICKSON LEVINE
Experienced, Creative, Intuitive.
Kari founded Erickson Levine Law in 2015 with a passion for finding creative solutions to even the most complex and highly charged disputes. She has handled 70+ matters and is an empaneled mediator for the Northern District of California.
As a litigation partner for over two decades at two of the most prestigious law firms, Seyfarth Shaw and Jones Day, Kari represented a vast range of clients in class action and single plaintiff disputes.
Based upon her work with individuals of diverse cultural and socio-economic backgrounds—from criminal courtrooms in Compton to Fortune 50 boardrooms—Kari has acquired a unique ability to understand all parties and to help them articulate their needs in ways that the opposing side will hear. Kari works tenaciously and empathetically to keep the parties communicating collaboratively. Curious and optimistic, embodying authenticity and compassion, Kari draws mediation participants out to find a resolution.
