A Southern California native, Erin Houston received her undergraduate degree from the University of California, Los Angeles in 2000, where she majored in history.  While attending UCLA, Erin worked for the Daily Bruin and as an athletic tutor for various student athletes.  After graduation, Erin worked first at a large public relations firm where she honed her writing skills and began working in media relations.  She then worked as a News Assistant for the local CBS affiliate in Portland, Oregon where she had the opportunity to both write and produce segments for the daily morning news show.  Erin then returned to Los Angeles where she worked in the area of academic personnel for the Political Science department at UCLA.  

After working for five years, Erin attended law school at the University of Oregon School of Law.  While there, Erin worked as a law clerk at the Multnomah County District Attorney’s office, where she made numerous court appearances and had the opportunity to try misdemeanor jury cases on behalf of the State.  She was also the co-director of the Street Law club and taught several classes to community members about the breadth and scope of the Fourth Amendment. 

After relocating to Las Vegas with her husband, Erin began her legal career a staff attorney with Nevada Legal Services.  There, she worked on behalf of indigent members of the community and appeared at numerous court and administrative hearings on their behalf.  Erin then moved over to private practice at Goldsmith & Guymon where she works primarily in the areas of bankruptcy, domestic litigation, guardianship, trust and estate planning, and probate litigation.
