Emily focuses on immigration law and is fluent in Spanish. She was worked extensively with the Latino community in and around Forsyth County.

While in law school, Emily spearheaded the Family Preparedness Project, an initiative led by the Wake Forest University School of Law Pro Bono Project providing durable powers of attorney for North Carolina residents who may be at risk of deportation.

These documents included durable powers of attorney, power of attorney to make educational decisions about children, authorization to consent to health care for a minor and a DMV power of attorney.

Complementing her legal pursuits, Emily’s has a history of helping other people, specifically immigrants. Emily worked with battered immigrant women as an Immigration Law Intern at Ayuda in Washington, D.C., where she helped with U Visas, U Visa Adjustment of Status, VAWA Cancellation of Removal, DACA Renewals and Notario Fraud issues, among others.
