Our Story

Founded in 2017 by Emily K. Declercq, J.D., M.B.A., Declercq Law Firm has swiftly established itself as a dynamic player in the legal field. Despite its stature as a small practice, the firm has impressively managed high-profile clients and cases. Emily's rich background, including a tenure as a state Supreme Court clerk, a decade ghostwriting for large firms in complex litigation, and a prior career in consulting, underpins the firm's robust approach. Her dual credentials in law and business empower her to lead a firm that adeptly handles high reward legal matters and foundational transactional work with the agility and personalized attention of a boutique practice.

Declercq Law's innovative approach is further enhanced by our collaborative relationships with other law firms, allowing us to draw upon a wider pool of expertise and resources. This network, coupled with our strategic methods, positions us to tackle legal challenges effectively. Emily and her team of paralegals are known for their thorough and overwhelming dedication to each case, ensuring no stone is left unturned in pursuit of resolution and real results. This commitment to exhaustive action and detail-oriented strategy is fundamental in achieving successful outcomes for our clients, reflecting our firm's ethos of relentless pursuit of justice and client satisfaction. See extended bio for more information.
