Litigation Paralegal Manager
Emily originally hails from Chesterfield County but as an alumna of Prince George High School (Go Royals!) considers Prince George County, Virginia her home.
Prior to joining the Pendleton Law Team, Emily earned her Associate of Science from Richard Bland College in Petersburg, Virginia and then went on to earn her Bachelor of Science and Master of Science in Criminal Justice from Radford University. She has also earned her Master of Science in Legal Studies from National Juris University, the graduate division of National Paralegal College. Emily returned to the Richmond area and worked in various State agencies including a local civil court, the Department of Corrections, and Virginia State Police, before finding her passion in Personal Injury Law.
As our Senior Personal Injury Litigation Paralegal, Emily works closely with attorneys, assisting with depositions, witness preparation, and research. She oversees cases that are being litigated through Circuit and Federal Court as well as advising on cases in General District Court.
"What l love most about this job is the ability to affect real change in people’s cases and ultimately their lives. Personal injury is an area of the law that’s very important to me. As the daughter and sister of two people whose lives were forever changed by catastrophic injuries, I know how important quality representation is. Being able to help people through some of the worst experiences of their lives and to help them recover what they’re entitled to is exactly why I do what I do."
Emily resides in Chesterfield County with her husband, daughter, and their fur-babies. In her free time she enjoys listening to audiobooks, binge-watching TV, exploring new restaurants/bakeries/coffee shops, and spending time with those she loves.
