Emily L. Downing


Emily Downing has lived in the Buffalo area for over 40 years. Her over 15 year career at Lewis and Lewis has been fueled by the words of Abraham Lincoln: “a lawyer’s time and advice are his stock in trade.” This quotation is the foundation for her passion of being an attentive listener and compassionate aide for her clients. These qualities have afforded her the ability of being a zealous advocate for the injured workers and families she has helped during her career. Emily is the Managing Partner of the Buffalo Workers’ Compensation Department.

Emily is married and has two children. She loves exercising, training for sprint-triathlons in the summer, and skiing in the winter. On the weekends, Emily enjoys preparing meals for gatherings with family and friends. Locally, she enjoys spending time in the Village of Hamburg or Elmwood Village.

Bachelor of Arts: Communications, SUNY at Buffalo, 1993
