Even in law school, Erik was dedicated to helping injured people access the justice they deserve. He was the co-founder of UWSTLA (University of Washington Student Trial Lawyers Association), to help students learn more about the practice of personal injury law. During law school Erik was fortunate enough to work for two of the most prestigious personal injury law firms in the state: Schroeter Goldmark & Bender and Chemnick, Moen & Greenstreet.

After law school Erik worked for Krilich, La Porte, West & Lockner in Tacoma. There he handled many personal injury cases including auto collision, work site injuries, medical negligence, and dangerous property cases. In 2001 Erik opened his own law firm, Ladenburg Law, where he continued to represent victims of negligence. In 2014 he and his partners opened Sadler Ladenburg.

Erik lives in Tacoma with his high school sweetheart and wife, Candy. They have two children, Cameron and Jace. When not practicing law, Erik enjoys biking, hiking, skiing, and spending time with his family.

Mr. Ladenburg was an outstanding lawyer. He was very professional, knowledgeable and approachable. I really appreciate his commitment and dedication to my case. He stood and fought on my behalf to ensure I got a fair settlement. I appreciate Mr. Ladenburg’s determination and patience in waiting on the counsel of the defendant to offer a fair settlement and not trying to persuade me to take anything thrown at me. He stood and we won and I would very highly recommend his services.


In 1997 I was involved in a horrible accident. My left shoulder and hip were ruined and required surgery and massive amounts of physical therapy. After getting the run around from a couple other law firms I contacted Erik Ladenburg. He reviewed my case and took it on. For 3 years he stuck with it. I never felt like I was anything but his most important client. He kept me informed and up to date with personal calls and emails he even went with me to IME appointments. At no point during my case did I feel like I didn’t know what was going on and was treated with respect throughout. I have, and will continue to, recommend both Erik and John to any friends or family who find themselves in need of honest, respectful, legal representation.


After seeing several attorneys I hired Erik. All the other attorneys said my case was not winnable and that I should not proceed with it. From the beginning Erik was honest and reliable and I felt that he truly cared about my case. Erik settled my case efficiently and got me the results that I needed.

Erik did more with my case in a year and a half’s time then my previous attorney did in almost three years. Communication with Erik is top notch. If I’m ever in need of his help again, no question he’ll be hearing from me! Thank you so much Erik for all your hard work and continued effort to wrap up my case!


In 2009 I was in a car accident that really took a toll on my body. Having known Erik & the Ladenburg family I knew they would do what it took to get me the compensation I deserved. His persistence and ability to work with the insurance companies. I never had to be in contact with anybody. He has also handled several other cases for family and friends who would also vouch for a positive experience. I highly recommend Sadler Ladenburg Law to anyone I come in contact with that would benefit from their services.
