Texas and New Mexico Personal Injury Lawyer
Emma Roddy was born and raised in New Braunfels, Texas. After graduating from New Braunfels High School, she obtained her BFA in Theatre Performance from Baylor University. Upon leaving Baylor, Emma moved to New York City where she enjoyed directing and acting in plays, building costumes for Broadway theatre productions, working as a hostess at a restaurant on the Upper East Side, and meeting countless people from all different backgrounds with many different stories to tell.
After two years in the City, Emma moved back to Austin to be closer to family. There, she worked for an education equity nonprofit raising funds for children who would be the first in their family to go to college. As a fundraiser, Emma found that by listening to people and telling their stories to people who could make a difference, she could effect change in her community. It was this realization that led her to pursue a law career.
Emma entered Baylor Law School with this pursuit in mind—to learn how to use the law to tell a client’s story and change their life for the better. She was fortunate to have many opportunities within the law school to make this pursuit a reality. While in law school, Emma was a member of the Barristers’ Society, the Student Wellness Organization, and Baylor Public Interest Legal Society. She worked with veterans in the school’s estate planning clinic, served as an Executive Editor on Baylor Law Review, and competed in several national Moot Court and Mock Trial competitions. Emma received the highest grade in three courses and graduated from Baylor Law School with honors (cum laude) in July of 2021.
Since joining the Sloan Firm in October 2021, Emma has had the privilege to put this training to good use serving clients in Texas and New Mexico. She is a member of the New Mexico Trial Lawyers’ Association and the American Association for Justice. Although she grew up in Texas, Emma loved her nearly annual vacations to Northern New Mexico as a child and is enjoying putting down roots in Santa Fe. When not practicing law, Emma enjoys cooking, hiking in the mountains, and spending time with her fiancée, Kate, and their ever-growing menagerie of four-legged children.
