Emily joined the firm in 2016 as an associate in our Rapid City office.  Her practice areas include family law, general civil litigation, real estate disputes, and criminal defense.  In addition to serving her clients, Emily is also dedicated to serving the Rapid City community.  She serves on the Board of Directors for Working Against Violence, Inc.  Emily also looks forward to her weekly lunch delivery route serving the clients of the Meals on Wheels Program. 

While in law school, Emily was actively involved with the Trial Team and Alternative Dispute Resolution programs, giving her a unique perspective on both intense trial work and the value of settlement in the legal system.  After law school, she spent a year clerking for the Seventh Judicial Circuit Court in Rapid City, which prompted her to put down roots in the Black Hills and ultimately join us at Bangs McCullen.  In her free time, Emily enjoys cooking, traveling, knitting, and spending time with her family.
