November General Membership Meeting
We are excited to announce that our November General Membership meeting will be held on Tuesday, November 19 at 12:00 pm at the Taft Center.
Our members are in for a treat this month with our featured speaker, Emily Cochran, who is a family law attorney at Graydon. As a 14-year-old freshman at Bluefield High School, Emily was the victim of a brutal assault. The prosecutor advised against putting her on the stand, leaving her vulnerable to the defense attorneys representing her four attackers. Her grieving parents agreed. She considered careers in medicine, business and psychology but decided on law because she wanted to help the whole person. “Being a lawyer combined everything I wanted to do – the medicine, the psychology, finding ways to agree. In my practice of family law, you really are a counselor.”
She came to Northern Kentucky and worked full-time as litigation paralegal while putting herself through night school at Chase College of Law. From 2010 to ’13, she volunteered every other Saturday at the Women’s Crisis Center. Her career focus was further honed through her own divorce and the diagnosis of her son’s special needs.
Emily believes divorce is a tragedy unless you learn from it. “I want to use my life to help people get through their own bad experiences. I work to get people to calm down, to focus on the bigger picture. At one time, they got along. I try to get them back to that for the sake of the children. The unfortunate fact is that the divorce rate is nearly 50 percent, which means there’s a good chance your own child could go through divorce. So it’s important to show your kids what a healthy divorce looks like.”
We are very excited to hear about Emily’s journey and practice area and hope you will be able to join us! Box Lunches from Chick-Fil-A will be available for purchase, which will include your choice of Chicken nuggets, Chicken Sandwich or Wrap, along with a chocolate chip cookie and waffle fry potato chips. Vegetarian options can be available upon request. The cost is $10.00 per boxed lunch. Please email your lunch order to Amanda Mosbaugh at firstname.lastname@example.org.
