Say the name Erin Brockovich and you think, strong, tough, stubborn, and sexy. Brockovich is all that and definitely more. She is a modern-day “David” who loves a good brawl with today’s “Goliaths.” She thrives on being the voice for those who don’t know how to yell. She is a rebel. She is a fighter. She is a mother. She is a woman. She is you and me.
It has been 17 years since Julia Roberts starred in the Oscar-winning tour de force Erin Brockovich. The film turned an unknown legal researcher into a 20th century icon by show casing how her dogged persistence was the impelling force behind the largest medical settlement lawsuit in history. Since then, Brockovich hasn’t been resting on her laurels … she continues to fight hard and win big!
Brockovich is one of the most requested speakers on the international lecture circuit and travels the world for personal appearances. She 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.
As President of Brockovich Research & Consulting, she is involved in numerous environmental projects worldwide. She has requests for her help in ground water contamination complaints in every state of the United States, Australia, and other international hot spots. She is currently working on cases in California, Texas, Florida, Michigan, Illinois, and Missouri.
