About me

My name is Emily Mapp Brannon and I'm an attorney who specializes in personal injury law.


I grew up in Norfolk, Virginia surrounded by the law (my father is an attorney) and always knew I wanted to be a lawyer.


I'm currently licensed in all Virginia courts and am a member of the Virginia Bar Association, Virginia Beach Bar Association, the Norfolk-Portsmouth Bar Association, and the Virginia Trial Lawyers Association.


Based in Norfolk, I am ready to serve clients throughout Hampton Roads -- Chesapeake, Hampton, Newport News, Norfolk, Portsmouth and Suffolk -- as well as the communities of Virginia's Eastern Shore.
