Ms. Hemphill graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Chatham College in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in 1980 and from Northwestern Pritzker School of Law in Chicago, Illinois in 1983.  During her summers in law school, she worked for legal aid and the American Civil Liberties Union in Chicago.  After graduating from law school, Ms. Hemphill served as a Judicial Clerk to the Honorable John H. Buttler at the Oregon Court of Appeals.  In 1985, she moved to Santa Fe, New Mexico and worked for a variety of local firms before launching her own law firm in 1992.  

          Ms. Hemphill’s firm is dedicated to providing representation to clients who have suffered injuries and injustices.  Most representation is provided on a contingency fee basis, meaning that there is no attorney’s fee due unless there is a recovery.  Part lawyer, part warrior, Ms. Hemphill is a trial lawyer and thrives in the David versus Goliath legal environment in which she practices.  Ms. Hemphill has achieved significant success in both mediating and prosecuting cases on behalf of individuals, small businesses and non-profit organizations who have been wronged by governmental agencies, corporations and insurance companies. 

          Ms. Hemphill is licensed to practice law in New Mexico with experience at all levels of State Court, the U.S. District Court for the District of New Mexico and the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals. She is a member of the New Mexico Trial Lawyers Association.
