Based at Silk’s Leeds and North Yorkshire offices, Emily has been with the firm since 2011.

An experienced member of the team, Emily works closely with the partners on a range of complex cases and provides support to all fee earners across the full range of family law. This ensures clients have the benefit of the firm’s blended rates and active and regular communication on their case.

Emily has a keen interest in children cases, particularly those with more complex aspects involving safeguarding issues and fact finding.

Clients praise Emily’s incredible eye for detail as well as her calm, reassuring manner.

Having worked towards her qualification whilst working at Silk Family Law, Emily achieved Fellowship of the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives (CILEx) in February 2021. This means she is now qualified to carry out much of the work that solicitors do.

She regularly attends business development groups to extend her network of professional contacts.
