Emery Law Office July 2019



Inspired by Food & Wine magazine

Mashed potatoes are a staple of every American household, but this decadent variation created by Anthony Bourdain is worthy of a Fourth of July feast.


When you’re a growing practice, you need new staff members to support your expanding caseload. I’m lucky to have found two great additions to the Emery Law Office team. Audra Seng and Kristen Hawthorne recently joined us as paralegals. While they haven’t been here long, I have no doubt they’ll have a positive impact on our practice. In fact, they already have. Audra Seng comes to us with years of experience in the legal field. Her previous gig was also at a personal injury firm, giving her a wealth of knowledge to draw from. What led her to our practice? “When I interviewed for the role,” Audra says, “there were clear expectations about what I’d be doing. Emery Law Office has a laid-back environment where delivering for clients is the primary concern. It’s nice to work in a place where everyone is dedicated to helping people.” Outside of work, Audra is all about her family. She and her husband, Jason, love spending time with their children, having adventures, and sharing laughs. If Audra Seng is an established paralegal force, Kristen Hawthorne is a rookie with tremendous talent and potential. After graduating from Liberty University with her bachelor’s degree, Kristen joined Emery Law Office at the beginning of May. When looking for her first practice to call home, Kristen stumbled upon a video on our Facebook page (@EmeryLawOffice). “I was completely blown away by Melissa’s story and her goals for the practice,” Kristen says. “Even the application process was fun. I knew right away that this was the practice I wanted to work for.” When she’s not working, she’s coaching basketball, hanging with her kids, and working out with her husband, Jordan. Jordan is an executive chef at a local restaurant, so Kristen always has great food on the table. “We eat and work out and work out so that we can keep eating,” she says with a laugh.


• 4 Ibs. medium Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and halved • 6 sticks cold unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch cubes • 1/2 cup heavy cream • Kosher salt


WE WANT YOU TO THINK OF US AS YOUR LAW FIRM. If you have a legal matter that needs attention, let us know. If we can’t handle the matter, we will refer you to a firm that can. Please feel free to refer us to your friends and family for their legal needs. We welcome the opportunity to help. 5. Add butter in four equal batches, stirring constantly and adding each batch only once the last has been fully incorporated into the saucepan. 6. Stir in cream, season liberally with salt, and serve immediately. 1. In a stockpot or large saucepan, submerge potatoes in just enough water to cover them. Bring to a boil, add 2 tbsp of salt, and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes. 2. Drain potatoes and let cool for 3 minutes. 3. Using a ricer, grate potatoes into the original saucepan over medium heat. 4. With a wooden spoon, stir potatoes until they begin to stick to pan and steam, about 2 minutes.

I’m so thrilled to welcome Kristen and Audra to the Emery Law Office family. They are wonderful people who will make our practice an even better place.
