Emily brings a lot of energy and enthusiasm to her role at Langley Law Firm. She started working at Gordon, Watrous, Ryan, Langley, Bruno & Paltenghi, her father’s law firm at age 15, learning the business from a clerk’s perspective.
“I was able to learn the best way, which is by doing it yourself. My classroom was the Contra Costa Superior Court and by embracing every aspect of it, I was able to learn a ton in a short time. Seeing the legal system in action was the perfect way to learn the ropes and looking back, it was invaluable.”
After graduated from Alhambra High School in Martinez, CA, Emily attended Diablo Valley Junior College, where she earned an AA degree. Subsequently, she worked her way up from a clerk to a secretary, working for Peter Langley, her father. After enrolling at the John F. Kennedy University Paralegal Studies Program, Emily earned her Paralegal Certification in 2011 and her Notary Public certification two years later. In September of 2014, the father and daughter formed a formidable team, joining skills and experience to form Langley Law Firm in Walnut, Creek, CA.
Emily is well-suited for the job, because people describe her as “detail-oriented,” “highly ethical” and “easy to work with.”
