It’s awesome to be able to get together for a nice meal and plenty of laughs. As we sat around the table, I couldn’t help but reflect on what an incredible staff we have here at Emery Law Office.

It’s shaping up to be a momentous year for Emery Law Office. Thankfully, I have a team in place that’s more than equipped to handle the growing practice.
