Emily Adams

Appellate Attorney

I am an appellate attorney based in Utah. My practice at The Appellate Group is focused exclusively on appeals. I counsel with clients to determine their best strategy on appeal and strategize with clients and attorneys about preparing for an appeal while in district court.

Apart from appellate briefs, in my practice I have submitted amicus briefs before the United States Supreme Court, the Eleventh Circuit, and the Utah Supreme Court; I have represented criminal defendants and civil clients on appeal to the Utah appellate courts; I have drafted motions for permission to file an interlocutory appeal in the Utah appellate courts; and I have filed petitions for certiorari.

I am licensed to practice law in Utah and admitted to practice before the United States Supreme Court. I love being enormously tall, being a celiac in a bread-filled world, trying to do a pull-up, and dragging my kids on hiking trips.
