Emily’s Secretary

Heather Dingess


Emily Ford decided to become an attorney after an internship lobbying for healthcare legislation for a Virginia non-profit. She joined Flaherty’s Charleston office in 2020. Emily is a member of our complex tort and product liability practice group.

A natural problem solver, Emily is passionate about the challenge litigation brings. “I enjoy a challenge, but what is most rewarding about practicing law is being able to help alleviate the burden from a client.”

Outside of the office, Emily can usually be found on the porch reading a book. She enjoys hiking, swimming and spending time outside with friends and family. When not enjoying the outdoors, you can find her cheering on the Mountaineers or Astros.
