Emily Root joined the Anthony J. Madonia & Associates, Ltd. team in 2013. Her professional focus is Estate Planning. She works with clients to identify their needs so that she can take a comprehensive look at the big picture and provide the best approach to preserve wealth, protect assets and accommodate directives. While technically efficient, Emily’s ability to ask the right questions and address details has earned the respect of clients and colleagues, alike. Her interest in learning about and connecting with clients translates to the strong relationships she has developed with clients.
Emily calls Chicago home after graduating with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science and Communication from Denison University in her home state of Ohio and subsequently working as a litigation legal assistant for a New York City law firm. Once her interest in the legal profession grew, she made the decision to pursue a career as an attorney. She attended Loyola University Chicago School of Law to complete her Juris Doctorate.
In her spare time and on weekends, Emily enjoys discovering Chicago’s eclectic neighborhoods and shops, as well as exploring the restaurant scene and finding new places to dine out with friends.
