  • Meredith McKell Graff

    I have been fortunate to work in the same building with Emily for several years and was able to "pick her brain" on Employment Law subjects. She is very knowledgeable and helpful. I have heard good things about her from clients who have had her as their attorney. I highly recommend Emily Sheldrick and her law firm!
