Profile

Emily Matta is a member of Foulston’s employment and labor law practice group in the firm’s Wichita office. She received her J.D. from the University of Kansas School of Law. Emily previously clerked with Foulston as a summer associate and served as a judicial extern for Hon. Steven Leben at the Kansas Court of Appeals, where she gained valuable insight into the appellate process.

Before she attended law school, Emily held every position from dishwasher to manager at her family’s restaurant in Wichita. She experienced first-hand the difficulties small businesses face in navigating state and federal employment laws.

Emily is a Kansas history enthusiast. She has visited nearly every corner of the state and, in her spare time, is working through a list of historic sites and lesser-known roadside attractions to visit.
