Following her first year at law school, Emily Duffield received an opportunity to clerk at a large supermarket chain. It was a fateful connection that resulted in her joining Sitko Bruno as a clerk and then permanently as an attorney.

If asked where she focuses her practice, Emily will tell you that she does a little bit of everything, but her primary practice is in real property acquisitions and disposition, commercial lending and commercial leasing.

As a young attorney, Emily’s goal is to learn something new each day, whether it is research, negotiation or drafting skills. She has also become our resource for new technologies to keep our clients and our firm ahead of industry changes and security measures.

When not at work, Emily is most likely watching football, attending a baseball game, or trying to find the best restaurants in each of Pittsburgh’s neighborhoods with her friends. Avid reader, music lover and traveler, Emily never misses an opportunity to see a new city or have a new experience. She always brings a positive energy to the workplace.
