Emily Levenson represents individuals and corporate clients in complex criminal and civil matters. Her practice includes federal and state criminal defense, employment matters, and disability rights cases representing clients facing barriers to physical accessibility and access to technology. Emily is a passionate and persuasive advocate who focuses on obtaining the best possible result while serving her clients with compassion.
In criminal defense cases, Emily has appeared frequently in federal and state courts and advocated vigorously for clients from the onset of prosecution through trial, appeal, and post-conviction matters. She recognizes that each client has a story to tell and works with them to do so while protecting their rights and ensuring the best outcome. Recognizing that trial is not always in the client’s interest, Emily has fought for and obtained numerous favorable, pre-trial outcomes for her clients, including dismissals of cases.
Emily’s civil practice has included high-impact public interest litigation to remove barriers that prevent her clients from participating equally in society. As one of the firm’s attorneys representing the National Federation of the Blind, she worked alongside the Department of Justice to obtain a consent decree against Miami University that provided comprehensive relief under the ADA for students with disabilities. In another matter, she litigated against a high-stakes test provider to ensure that her client was provided the exam in braille.
