She became a Director of Maxwell Gillott in 2007 and specialises in education and access to health and social care services (particularly cases involving more than one of these areas of law).

Emily recently extended her hands on experience by taking 18 months out of law to work in a home for young people with emotional and behavioural difficulties.
