Attorney Heather Riggs has always had an enthusiasm for innovation in the legal industry. She has dedicated her career to helping fellow members of the profession plan, build, and drive their online marketing presence.
Heather was adopted, and she understood from an early age that an attorney made her adoption possible. This revelation inspired her calling to the legal field. After practicing in a small firm, she opened her own solo practice which focused on making families whole by matching loving parents with deserving children. During her years in practice Heather identified a disconnect between the lawyer’s capacity to effectively market and the public’s ability to understand and access legal services. Solving both problems at once, Heather founded Atlanta Legal Marketing.
Heather is an Officer in the Young Lawyers Division of the State Bar of Georgia, a position she has held for two years. Prior to becoming an Officer, she was appointed to three consecutive terms as a Director in the Division. Heather has held professional leadership positions in the American Bar Association’s Young Lawyers Division, the Georgia Association for Women Lawyers, the Atlanta Bar Association, her PowerCore Referral Networking Team, and the City Club of Buckhead’s Board of Governors and Young Executive Society.
Heather holds a Juris Doctorate degree from Atlanta’s John Marshall Law School and a Bachelor of Science degree from Clayton State University where she studied psychology, women’s studies, theater, and philosophy. Her coursework required study in twenty countries across six continents, including: England, Scotland, France, Greece, Portugal, Panama, Ecuador Tahiti, New Zealand, Australia, China, Hong Kong, Ireland, Northern Ireland, Belgium, The Netherlands, Argentina, Malta, Cyprus, and Tanzania.
