In her private law practice, Erika fights for economic justice on behalf of consumers and employees, with a particular emphasis on litigation on behalf of those harmed by erroneous credit reports, inaccurate employee background checks, unlawful debt collection practices, and other unfair trade practices.
Erika is a 2002 graduate of Southern Methodist University. She worked in finance in both Texas and Germany before earning her J.D. from Northeastern University School of Law in 2009. After graduating, Erika got her start as an attorney at Atlanta Legal Aid Society, where she represented focused on protecting low-income consumers from abusive business practices. During her time as a legal aid attorney, she served as lead counsel on the case of Strickland v. Alexander, which ultimately led to a federal court declaring Georgia’s garnishment process to be unconstitutional and enjoining most consumer garnishments in the state. As a result of her work on the Strickland case, Erika received numerous awards, including the 2015 Consumer Achievement of the Year award from the National Association of Consumer Advocates (NACA).
She is currently Of Counsel to the consumer law firm of Francis Mailman Soumilas, P.C., and the employment law firm of Duckworth & Peters LLP. She continues to be an active member of NACA.
