Emery has been in practice in Oregon since 2009. Before becoming a lawyer, he had a graphic design studio in Austin, Texas, with fellow artist A.J. Garces. They were one of the first custom clip art companies in the mid 1990s, and their last project together was an Aerosmith album cover in 2012.
Before moving to Texas, Emery lived in New Jersey, Maryland, Pennsylvania, California, and Washington, grew up in South Dakota, and went to college in Minnesota. He was a member of the SD, MN, and TX Army National Guard in the 1980s and 90s. After living in Texas for 17 years, he moved to Oregon.
While attending Lewis and Clark Law School, he worked as a Multnomah County District Attorney, and has been a full time personal injury lawyer since then. He has also served as a traffic court prosecutor for the City of Fairview, Oregon, and continues to work as a volunteer attorney for the Domestic Violence Project at Legal Aid Services of Oregon. Emery served on the Board of Governors of the Oregon Trial Lawyers Association from 2014-2016.
Emery's favorite pastime is discussing things you're not supposed to discuss in polite company. He also tries to play the piano, tries to powerlift, and tries to keep the wife and kids entertained.
