Professional growth and public service have led Family Law attorney Emily C. Baker to the role of President of the Young Lawyers’ Section of the Fairfax Bar Association. In taking this position, Emily builds on a solid foundation of Feldesman Tucker leadership within the legal community. The firm’s founder, Marna Tucker, was the first woman elected president of the District of Columbia Bar Association.
“It’s an honor to demonstrate our firm’s commitment to leadership within the legal profession,” said Emily Baker. “I’m looking forward to working with our members to provide growth and development opportunities through networking, mentoring and outreach programs.”
The Young Lawyers Section is dedicated to building relationships between young lawyers themselves as well as with senior lawyers and judges in the Fairfax area. Membership allows attorneys to become acclimated to the practice of law in Fairfax, meet their new colleagues, and participate in social activities.
Emily’s leadership within the Virginia legal community is consistent with her position within the Family Law Group at Feldesman Tucker, where she co-leads the Virginia practice area. She has also been recognized by her peers who have voted her a 2019 Super Lawyers Rising Star.
She received her law degree from Washington and Lee University School of Law in Lexington, Virginia, after graduating from Furman University in Greenville, South Carolina, with a B.A. cum laude.
