Emily Stroope: courtroom dynamo, skydiver and lover of all things sweet

Published in 2017 Texas Rising Stars — April 2017

My nickname is … Eggs. My initials led to that gem.

If you were in my office, you’d … grab some chocolate from my candy dish. I always have chocolate.

My colleagues would be surprised to know that … I’m an adrenaline junkie. I’ve been skydiving! 

My career high point (so far) has been … winning at trial. Nothing else compares.

If I weren’t a lawyer, I’d be … a professor. I always loved school.  

When I win a case, I celebrate by … downing a bottle of Veuve with my husband.

The SCOTUS justice I’d like to meet is … the Notorious R.B.G.

A different practice area that intrigues me is … animal rights and welfare.

My fictional hero is … Daenerys Targaryen. Mother of dragons, breaker of chains.

My real-life hero is … Sandi Stroope. The world would be a vastly different place if every child had a mother like her.

On weekends I … sleep. A lot.

My most bizarre talent is … Pashchima Namaskarasana.

The talent I wish I had is … singing. I would never stop!

I get angry when … people lack empathy.

The craziest thing I witnessed in a courtroom is … a litigant fainting, and the judge immediately knowing it was a stunt.

The movie line I quote most often is … “So many activities!” [from Step Brothers]

The book I just don’t get is … Siddhartha by Hermann Hesse.

The last TV show I binge-watched was … The Sopranos. Watching them all for the first time.

Nothing cheers me up like … seeing my elated, adorable little dog when I get home after a long day.

If I won the lottery, I’d … sail around the world.

My guilty pleasure is … anything with sugar. Petit fours are my current obsession. 

My favorite word is … “butterfly.” It’s beautiful in every language except German. Schmetterling!
