Emily begins each case by seeking to understand her clients’ stories. Some clients’ stories center around their devotion to a position of employment and being treated unfairly by their employer. Other stories center around a person feeling called to do the right thing and act as a whistleblower reporting illegal conduct. Other stories detail the pain, loss, and forever change of life after an injury. In all of these scenarios, Emily is humbled to have the opportunity to speak her clients’ stories into action.
