Emily represented me and another co-plaintiff in a very lengthy, complex case. Having never been involved in a lawsuit previously, I was apprehensive about the process we were embarking on--especially how it might interfere with my personal or professional life. Emily's willingness to take my questions anytime, however helped ease the anxiety. She established herself early on as someone I could reach when necessary (or expect a prompt return call/email) and who I could trust for straight answers and proper legal advice.
From conversations with Emily about the case and witnessing her relentless dedication to it, I got the impression her pursuit of victory was more about righting the injustices I had suffered than about anything else. Her regard for what I had been through and for the countless others still at risk seemed genuine, and center to her motivation. This earned my trust and total confidence in her will to win, which ultimately she did. Of all the things I could say about Emily and my 5-year experience working with her as my attorney, these are the ones I appreciate most.

Having worked with Emily at Gerry Spence's Trial Lawyers College, I fully endorse her. Emily has the courage to challenge the power structure and the experience to get results for her clients. She really cares about her clients as people and works hard to get the best possible result.
