Practice Summary
Practice Overview

Attorney Erika A. Riggs graduated from Wayne State University where she earned both her BA and JD. During law school, Erika devoted her free time to public service, education, and mentorship. She co-founded a non-profit, The 313 Project, providing scholarships for at-risk youth, pro-bono legal advice, as well as volunteer work in Detroit. She also served as a senior note and comment editor of the Wayne Law Review, property law teaching assistant, and small claims court mediator.

Since receiving her law degree, Erika has exclusively specialized in assisting the disabled before the Social Security Administration and the VA. She can regularly be found in her community engaging non-profits and volunteering at community events. Her compassion and commitment to under-served populations are as notable as her skilled and unique legal arguments. Mrs. Riggs received the inaugural Crain’s Detroit Business “Notable Women Lawyers” award in 2017, Avvo’s Client Choice award for the fifth consecutive year, and was recognized as a Rising Star by Super Lawyers in 2018, 2019, and 2020.

Erika is conversational in Spanish and is a member of the State Bar of Michigan, Macomb County Bar Association, National Organization of Social Security Claimants’ Representatives, and National Organization of Veterans’ Advocates. Notably, she is also a committee member of the State Bar of Michigan Young Lawyers Section. She is accredited to practice before the Department of Veterans Affairs.

Her office is commonly referred to as the “chocolate factory” – a title she takes quite seriously, and she loves spending time with her family – traveling, martial arts, hiking, and painting.
