Bio

Riley is a member of the firm’s Individual Rights Group where she represents those who have experienced discrimination—whether at work, in public accommodation, or elsewhere.

Prior to joining the firm, Riley clerked for Alaska Superior Court Judge Amy Mead. She graduated cum laude from the University of Wisconsin Law School where she completed a judicial internship with Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Rebecca Dallet, served as a Managing Editor for the Wisconsin Law Review, as a clinical student in the school’s Eviction Defense Clinic, and as co-president of the Queer Law Students Association.

While in Wisconsin, Riley also volunteered for Trans Law Help Wisconsin where she spearheaded various initiatives to help transgender Wisconsinites know their rights and better access resources. She was later appointed to sit on the organization’s Board of Directors, a position she held from 2021-2022. Riley received multiple awards for pro bono service to this and other nonprofit organizations while a law student.

Throughout her career, Riley has held various retail and customer service positions. She has worked in local government, in rural civil legal aid, and at a prominent New York law firm.
