“I believe attorneys are, first and foremost, counselors at law. I consider it a privilege to help individuals and businesses establish the groundwork for success and handle the challenges of disputes. My experience litigating both construction disputes and insolvency disputes uniquely qualifies me to support and defend clients.”
Emily Clendenon focuses her practice in all areas of construction law, including representation of clients in construction litigation, contract disputes, construction defects, lien claims, and OSHA defense.
Prior to practicing in construction law, Emily worked with a boutique bankruptcy firm gaining valuable experience in corporate restructuring and complex commercial litigation. This combination of construction and financial dispute litigation helps Emily better understand the importance of sound business practices and the foundations companies need to succeed.
Emily earned her J.D. from Liberty University School of Law. She was Vice President of Street Law, a national organization providing mentorship and support for at-risk youth. She received her Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Thomas Edison State University.
