Raised in Saudi Arabia, Emily Vechan gained an early appreciation for the value of effective communication. By growing up in a country that spoke a different language. It allowed her to grasp the importance of understanding others with a different point of view. It wasn’t long after moving to the United States that Emily began using these skills professionally. As a teenager, she worked at the same law firm where her mother was a legal assistant. Since then, she has remained steadfast in her commitment to helping real people. People with real injuries seeking to obtain the justice they deserve.
Since 2005, Emily has unceasingly striven to develop her legal expertise. She has worked for some of the most preeminent litigators in Texas. In 2015, she became a proud member of the personal injury department of her “dream law firm” – Williams Hart Boundas Easterby, LLP.
Emily chose personal injury as her area of practice for one main reason. She believes that someone needs to hold companies accountable for their negligence, misconduct, and recklessness. Thus, she has vigorously represented countless clients in cases involving: 18-wheeler accidents, workplace injuries, auto incidents, and premises liability. Emily is always willing to assist her fellow lawyers. Thus, she provides probate and bankruptcy-related assistance to both the firm’s personal injury department and the mass torts department. Emily is constantly seeking to provide her clients with excellent legal services. For this reason, she ensures she keeps her clients informed about the case and gives them the respect they deserve.
Emily Vechan attended high school in the Meyerland-area of Houston at St. Thomas’ Episcopal School. She graduated from Trinity University in San Antonio, where she was student body president. Being an ambitious person, Emily went straight from college to law school. While there, she 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 world traveler. She is also an involved member of Houston’s Junior League. Emily is a photophile, so you will see her with a camera across her shoulder, ready for the perfect photo. Emily is an artist at heart; in her limited free time, she is usually creating charcoal sketches. In 2016, she got married in Las Vegas to her best friend, Ryan. Ryan is a licensed attorney. However, he 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.
The foundation of understanding is the willingness to listen.
