Emily was born in Girard, Pennsylvania, but her family later moved to Ohio. It was there, at Ohio’s Heidelberg University, that she received her Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and Political Science. Afterward, she went on to get her legal degree from the University of Toledo College of Law.
Emily joined our firm in 2016 but has been working in the bankruptcy field of law since 2006. Now, more than a decade later, she still finds great joy in the work for two key reasons. First and foremost, she takes pride in helping real people get through extremely stressful financial situations. Nothing, she says, could be more rewarding than seeing that sense of relief wash over her clients when their hard work pays off and they find themselves in a more secure position financially.
The second big reason Emily enjoys her work so much is that every day presents new challenges. You see, each client that reaches out has his or her own unique set of concerns, goals, and obstacles. Where some may find this prospect intimidating, Emily fully embraces the opportunity to create a solution from scratch. Not only does this mean a stimulating challenge for her, but it also means a more effective legal strategy for the client in question.
People facing debt need a strong advocate on their side. My clients get that and more from me.
