Empathy is at the forefront of Emily’s services to ensure close relationships and trust are gained and maintained throughout the claims process to meet our “family first” approach, and to ensure that her clients are taken through the litigation process to secure resources to meet their needs during and following conclusion of litigation.
Outside of work, Emily is committed to the development of the next generation of lawyers and improving access to the profession by raising awareness as a steering group member of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL) Future Leaders Community.
