About Emily

Learn Emily’s areas of practice.

I devote a majority of my practice to representing individuals injured as a result of nursing home neglect and abuse and medical malpractice.

When placing the care of a loved one into the hands of another, family members want to feel secure knowing that this individual will be properly cared for. While that is the intent, the unfortunate reality is that abuse and injury continue to occur at adult foster care homes and long-term care facilities.

Today, these facilities are chronically understaffed and residents are often cared for by individuals who have limited training and no medical background. This can result in abuse and neglect, as the staff fail to recognize when significant health issues arise or they may fail to meet the resident’s most basic needs.

As a lawyer with many years of experience litigating cases of abuse and neglect in adult foster care homes, I have seen the problems that arise when non-skilled workers are tasked with caring for adults who have physical disabilities, psychiatric disabilities, traumatic brain injuries, and/or are elderly. Many of Michigan’s most vulnerable adults-those who cannot communicate verbally or have a limited ability to communicate-live in this setting, and as a result, tragedies occur. 

I am proud to advocate on behalf of the elderly, and I will continue to seek justice for individuals who have been injured while in the care of a nursing home, senior living facility, or adult foster care home.

I have been selected as a SuperLawyer Rising Star on six occasions and am an active member of the Michigan Association of Justice, the American Association of Justice, the Macomb County Bar Association, Women Lawyers Association, and the Michigan State Bar Negligence Law Division.

With great compassion and diligence Emily brought due justice to my Father's case. Her accuracy, availability and professionalism was very much appreciated by the entire family. If you are searching for an attorney who will go above and beyond their call of duty, I highly recommend Emily Peacock. She's a winner!
