Emily Voshell is counsel at KaiserDillon. Emily joined KaiserDillon after eight years as a public defender in both Washington, DC and New Orleans, LA. Her tenure in public service has made her passionate about defending the rights of individuals and helping people at the times in their life when they need it most. It has also given her extensive litigation experience: since graduating law school she has led or co-chaired defense teams in over 16 jury and 30 bench trials on charges ranging from drug possession to life without parole felonies.
As a staff attorney in the Special Litigation Division of the Public Defender Service in Washington, DC, Emily litigated to obtain systemic reform for people accused and convicted of crimes in the nation’s capital. In addition to drafting pleadings, conducting hearings and representing clients seeking post-conviction relief, she also assisted in legislative reform and jury instruction revision. She served as a member of the Service’s Forensic Practice Group, concentrating on eyewitness identification reform.
At the New Orleans Public Defenders office, Emily acted as a trial attorney while supervising a team of attorneys, investigators, and client support staff. She also taught continuing legal education on litigating eyewitness identification cases.
