Emily Weiss

As a former legal fellow for the U.S. Senate Committee for Veteran’s Affairs, Emily Weiss knows firsthand the struggles servicemen and women face on a daily basis. She is the daughter of a retired Navy Veteran and the wife of a disabled Army Veteran and understands the frustration that comes from dealing with VA bureaucracy and red tape.

“Watching my husband go through the system and seeing how difficult it was for him was my catalyst to become a Veterans advocate attorney.”

Emily is committed to assisting her clients in navigating the system and obtaining the disability benefits they rightfully earned. With a background in advocacy dating back to her undergraduate years at the University of South Dakota, Emily worked to help pass state policy that improved the experience of Veterans, their dependents, and other members of the military community.

“I was drawn to Berry Law because it’s the Veterans benefits law firm in the Midwest.”

Emily earned her Juris Doctor and Master of Science from Creighton University School of Law.

She is a member of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates (NOVA), which lobbies on behalf of Veteran’s law and regulatory systems. In her free time, Emily enjoys quilting, scrapbooking, and the occasional videogame binge. She lives with her husband and son.
