Before joining Riddle & Brantley in 2022, Emma McEvoy worked at a New York law firm as a litigation associate, where she focused on employment litigation and general civil matters. Today, McEvoy joins a talented legal team committed to the rights of injury victims throughout North Carolina. Competitive by nature, she is eager to bring her clients’ cases before a judge and jury if pre-trial negotiations fall short of a just outcome. Ms. McEvoy handles personal injury cases, car and truck accident lawsuits, and workers’ compensation claims.
Emma McEvoy graduated from prestigious St. Lawrence University with a Bachelor of Arts in government and history. She went on to earn her Juris Doctor from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Law in 2020. A native of Buffalo, NY, McEvoy was introduced to the legal profession at a young age through the work of her parents. Her mother served as a New York State Supreme Court Judge, while her father held an in-house corporate counsel position. Her brother is also a practicing attorney. Emma credits her mother’s pivotal role in the state court system as the inspiration behind her own dreams of one day becoming a trial attorney.
“Emma is a highly motivated lawyer who brings a true passion for justice and gravitates to the most challenging cases. We are truly fortunate to count her among our dedicated team,” said Riddle & Brantley founding partner Gene Riddle. As Emma herself has said, “For me, being able to tackle a challenging case head-on and find a solution for my client is the best type of win.”
