Practice area

I have focused my practice entirely on Family Law since 2013. In addition to being a lawyer, I am a mother to five children, a divorcee, a wife, a child advocate, and a passionate business owner and entrepreneur. I enjoy developing relationships with various local professionals in our community who often play a significant role in the outcome of family law matters. By maintaining relationships with local experts such as co-parenting counselors, forensic accountants, judicial officers, mediators, and child custody evaluators, I firmly believe that my clients benefit from a more holistic approach to legal problem-solving.

Best Divorce Attorney in the Tri-State!
I cannot express my gratitude enough for the exceptional legal representation provided by Emily. Going through a divorce is never easy, but having her on my side made all the difference. From the initial consultation to the final settlement, her expertise, professionalism, and empathy was evident every step of the way. Emily and their team demonstrated a deep understanding of the complexities involved in my case and provided clear guidance, ensuring that I fully understood my rights and options throughout the process. They were responsive to my questions and concerns, always keeping me informed and empowered to make informed decisions. I cannot recommend Emily highly enough to anyone in need of a skilled and compassionate divorce attorney. Her commitment to me and unwavering dedication truly sets her apart. Thank you, Emily, for helping me navigate this challenging time with integrity and dignity!
