Biography

Emily has nearly 10 years of experience leading complex litigation and class actions on behalf of plaintiffs in product liability, personal injury, environmental, and business fraud cases. In one of Emily’s most notable cases, she represented a small publicly-traded company against its dominant competitor in a lawsuit involving antitrust allegations. The matter resulted in a business deal and settlement under which the client received tens of millions of dollars.

Emily previously served as counsel to the U.S. Senate’s Committee on Governmental Affairs, Oversight of Government Management Subcommittee. She advised the subcommittee on regulatory oversight issues and reform in the areas of federal personal, homeland security, and food safety. She also helped the subcommittee negotiate and advocate for the passage of key legislative provisions. After leaving the Senate, Emily returned to her home in Southern IL where she worked for as an associate attorney for one of the region’s largest plaintiff-focused firms. Emily also worked as an associate attorney in the business litigation department at Thompson Coburn LLP in downtown St. Louis, MO.

In 2009, U.S. Senator Dick Durbin appointed Emily to a bipartisan screen committee that selected Stephen Wigginton as the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Illinois.

Emily graduated from Washington University School of Law in St. Louis, MO. In addition to her litigation practice, Emily is involved in the American Bar Association Section of Litigation where she serves as an editor for the Solo and Small Firm Committee. She is also the former Chair of the Board of Directors for the Illinois YMCA Youth and Government Program, an organization she continues to volunteer with on an annual basis.
