The legal aid community is pleased to announce that Emily Teplin Fox has accepted the new position in the state litigation support unit that will focus on the use of technology in litigation. Emily is a skilled and experienced litigator. She graduated from Yale Law School in 2007 and then worked as an Equal Justice Fellow and Staff Attorney at the Minnesota Disability Law Center representing primarily deaf and hard of hearing clients for two years. Following two years clerking for federal judges in Minnesota, Emily became an associate at Markowitz Herbold, PC in Portland where she litigated a full caseload of complex cases in both state and federal courts. At Markowitz, Emily developed expertise in the use of state-of-the-art technology in all phases of litigation.
She also served as a volunteer leader and strong advocate for the private bar to support legal aid through the Campaign for Equal Justice’s Associates Committee, as a commitee member and a co-chair. During this time she also volunteered with legal aid, developing and presenting a series of lunch hour trainings for legal services staff regarding using technology to make their litigation practice more efficient. Emily is dedicated to using her skills to achieve justice for low income client communities. She is looking forward to joining the legal aid team and helping leverage appropriate technology to enhance legal aid’s practice of law and work toward our mission of access to justice for all, not just those who can afford it.
Emily will start on July 18th.
