I meant every word I said.
|― Erin to Jimmy after brutally condemning him for manipulating Mrs. Landry.|
Erin Brill is a first-year associate at Davis & Main.
Better Call Saul
After Jimmy causes a scandal with an unsanctioned television ad, Erin is detailed to assist Jimmy, though in actuality, her assignment is to monitor his activities and keep him in line with company policy. While Erin attempts to do this in as diplomatic a manner as possible, Jimmy is quick to recognize the leash Erin represents, however, ducking her at one point and then arguing with her at court. ("", "")
Erin observes as Jimmy attempts to get himself fired. When he eventually succeeds in doing so, after having his employment terminated, Jimmy snatches a soda can from her grip and deliberately throws it into an office garbage can. ("")
Erin demands to speak with Jimmy as he leads a group of seniors through a chair yoga at Sandpiper Crossing. Going outside, she confronts Jimmy about his ploy of lying to the seniors to get his settlement quicker. Jimmy not only affirms her accusation, but abruptly states his disdain for his clients, seemingly unknowing that he is still patched into the microphone set. As such, the seniors quickly abandon Jimmy upon hearing his admission when he goes back inside. He meets Erin in the parking lot out-front Sandpiper Crossing and tells her the plan worked and the seniors will likely continue their class action, having set up the argument with Erin to do the right thing by his clients. Erin tells Jimmy she was serious about everything she said and departs. ("")
Erin takes part in a mediation of the Sandpiper case at HHM, manning the phone remotely connecting the parties who couldn't make it in person. She is shocked by Howard Hamlin's accusations of wrongdoing to mediator Rand Casimiro and asks everyone to remain on the line as the mediation breaks down. ("")
Personality and traits
Erin possesses a high and almost religious zeal for adherence to proper legal procedure. As such, her position often becomes highly adversarial, especially with Jimmy McGill after she is assigned by Clifford Main to "assist" him. She is just as quick to show open contempt for Jimmy after learning the extent of his willingness to play fast and loose with the rules.
