Erin practices at the appellate level in civil litigation. Before joining Collins Einhorn, Erin was a law clerk for the Third Judicial Circuit Court of Michigan.

Her legal expertise has been relied upon in the courtroom, as dozens of her bench memoranda have been read into the record for rulings on summary disposition. As a skilled research writer, Erin drafted a Petition to the Supreme Court of the United States for Writ of Certiorari.
