Emily C. Stebbins is an attorney at The Gatti Firm. Across the thousands of cases that she has successfully handled, she has become known as one of the region’s most trusted lawyers for a variety of personal injury case types, including car accidents, trucking accidents, and nursing home abuse. She is also well-versed in workers’ compensation cases and has successfully obtained benefits for hundreds of injured workers. Emily’s clients know they can depend on her because she is a relentless fighter, but she is also compassionate and empathetic to her clients’ plight. Emily has obtained over $12 million in compensation for her clients, and that figure continues to increase all the time. When Emily works on a case, she handles it as if she was representing a close friend or family member, and it shows. Her approach is to fight for the best outcome in the shortest period of time, so her clients can turn the page on the difficult situation and move on with their lives with justice done.
While attending Willamette University College of Law, Emily made a name for herself by serving on the Moot Court Executive Board, as well as being an editor for Willamette Law Online. After her second year of law school, she earned a government honors fellowship in Washington, D.C., where she advocated for victims of police brutality by preparing police misconduct cases for administrative prosecution. She also represented victims of gender-related violence while serving with Willamette’s Human Rights and Refugee Law Clinic. She would complete her legal education there and graduate cum laude.
Not one to slow down, Emily worked quickly and diligently to begin practicing law. She has gained licensure to practice in both State and Federal Courts in Oregon, and in the state of Washington. Emily is active with the Oregon Trial Lawyers Association and is proud to be a Guardian of Civil Justice within that organization. She is also a member of the American Association of Justice, Oregon Women Lawyers, and she contributes to the Campaign for Equal Justice. She is often referred to as “an attorney to watch” by her peers and even opposing attorneys in the cases she handles.
When Emily is not working on a case, she can often be found playing on a recreational kickball team, golfing, or paper crafting. Of course, always an academic, she also spends a lot of her free time reading.
