Attorney Emma L. Guthrie first joined Birdsall Obear & Associates LLC as a law clerk, and she is now the most recent addition to their team of criminal defense attorneys in the Milwaukee office. Before attending Marquette University Law School, Attorney Guthrie attended the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse where she completed a double major in Philosophy and English. She also served as a tutor in both academic disciplines and worked as an intern for the La Crosse Public Defender’s office.
Growing up in a small, conservative town Northeast of Milwaukee, Attorney Guthrie became increasingly frustrated with the erroneous disparities in the Wisconsin criminal justice system. Her intolerance of this inequity led her to pursue a law degree and become an advocate for individuals fighting criminal charges.
