Erika was born and raised in Montana and is excited to be practicing in her home state. She is passionate about helping her clients maintain agency over their legal matters while ensuring they understand their legal options. Erika’s practice concentrates on estate planning and litigation, probate and trust administration, guardianships, and conservatorships.

Prior to law school, Erika worked as an advocate for survivors of domestic violence. While in law school, she worked at a Missoula family law firm and volunteered regularly at Missoula’s Self Help Law Center and the law school’s family law clinics.


After graduating, she clerked for the Honorable Justice Laurie McKinnon at the Montana Supreme Court. She currently serves as a pro bono attorney for Montana Legal Services Association in family and domestic violence matters.

In her free time, Erika enjoys spending time with her friends and family, playing volleyball, hiking, and traveling to see friends and family around the country.
