Emily J. Duiker
Emily J. Duiker joined Udall Shumway PLC in 2019. She provides excellent client care in the Family Law Group, working with Jonathan D. Brooks as a Paralegal. Ms. Duiker earned her Associates Degree in Paralegal Studies from Phoenix College and has worked in the legal field for 15 years.
Prior to joining the Firm, Ms. Duiker began working in the legal industry as the receptionist for a solo practitioner in Chandler. A year later, she moved to a mid-sized firm in Chandler. In her first 5 years there, she worked her way up from receptionist to legal secretary. Ms. Duiker transitioned to the role of Paralegal in 2010, with a focus on juvenile law (adoptions/terminations), probate (guardianships/conservatorships/estates), and family law.
Ms. Duiker says, “I’m really glad that I stumbled into the legal industry, courtesy of a wise and wonderful friend who encouraged me to pursue the Paralegal path. This job is rewarding, challenging, and interesting! On a personal note, I am a total bookworm. I also like to cook and hike (a childhood dream was to hike the Appalachian Trail), but my favorite pastime is hanging out with my husband and daughter.”
