EMILY VECHAN

 

Attorney

The foundation of understanding is the willingness to listen.

bio

Raised in Saudi Arabia, Emily gained an early appreciation for the value of effective communication and the importance of understanding different viewpoints. It wasn’t long after moving to the United States that she began using these skills professionally. As just a teenager, she began working at the same law firm where her mother was a legal assistant, and ever since then, she has remained steadfast in her commitment to helping real people with real injuries obtain the justice they deserve.
 
Since 2005, Emily has unceasingly striven to develop her legal expertise. She has had the honor of working for some of the most pre-eminent litigators in Texas, and in 2015, became a proud member of the personal injury department at her “dream firm” – Williams Hart Boundas Easterby, LLP.  The aim of her personal injury practice is to hold companies accountable for their negligence, misconduct, and recklessness, and she has vigorously represented countless clients in cases involving 18-wheelers, workplace injuries, products liability, auto incidents, and premises liability. She also provides probate and bankruptcy-related assistance for both the personal injury department and the firm’s pharmaceutical mass torts department. She constantly seeks to provide her clients with not just excellent legal services, but also with the consistent communication and respect that they deserve.
 
Emily attended high school in the Meyerland-area of Houston at St. Thomas’ Episcopal School, and graduated from Trinity University in San Antonio, where she was student body president. She went straight from college to law school, and received her Juris Doctorate from the University of Houston Law Center. She is a current member of the Texas Bar in good standing.
 
Outside of the office, Emily is a compulsive international traveler, an involved member of the Junior League of Houston, and an unashamed photophile, who, in her limited free time, can usually be found cooking or creating charcoal sketches. In 2016, she got married in Las Vegas to her best friend, Ryan, who is also a licensed attorney and currently serves as a professor in the maritime transportation department of his alma mater, Texas A&M University at Galveston. Together, they share a house in EaDo and happily dote on their five-pound, purebred poodle, Dama.
