Erin M. Zielinski graduated from the University of Missouri, cum laude, in 1999. She then attended St. Louis University School of Law where she received her law degree in December, 2002 and her license in 2003. While attending law school, Ms. Zielinski clerked for a prominent family law firm in Clayton, Missouri where her career in family law officially began.
Upon obtaining her law license, Ms. Zielinski worked as an Assistant Prosecuting Attorney with the St. Louis City Circuit Attorney’s Office where she prosecuted non-custodial parents in both civil and criminal cases for non-compliance with child support orders and child support laws. After four years in public service, Ms. Zielinski transitioned to private practice where she continued her focus in family law. While in private practice, Ms. Zielinski has established herself as an attorney who will work with each client and navigate them through the often emotionally trying family law case. Ms. Zielinski not only builds a relationship with each client, the clients know they can trust her to work tirelessly on their behalf to get them the results they want and deserve.
Now, with well over a decade devoted solely to family law, Ms. Zielinski has gained valuable experience handling complex financial issues regularly apparent in a divorce case as well as the emotional, and often complicated, issues surrounding custodial matters. She brought this experience to Hais, Hais, & Goldberger, P.C. when she joined the Firm in March, 2014.

Dzenana Delic was born in Bosnia and Hercegovina (Yugoslavia). Dzenana is no stranger to conflict. Growing up in the midst of a devastating civil war, she took refuge from her native Bosnia in St. Louis, bringing nothing with her but her family.

Dzenana Delic received her Bachelor’s degree from Maryville University in Saint Louis. She graduated from Valparaiso University School of Law in Northwestern Indiana. During her time in law school, Dzenana served as a certified legal intern in Indiana and Illinois representing indigent clients in criminal law matters, and was a participant in National Trial Advocacy Competitions.
