Attorney Profile

Emily Sullivan is an attorney with PEAK Litigation LLP in Kansas City, Missouri. A top-rated trial attorney with more than 17 years of legal experience, Ms. Sullivan provides exceptional counsel and support to a diverse range of clients throughout Kansas City who have legal needs involving any of the following:

  • Estate planning and probate
  • Probate, estate and trust litigation
  • Business litigation

Early in her legal career, Ms. Sullivan worked as an insurance defense attorney in New York City, where she defended hospitals, physicians and landlords in medical malpractice and premises liability cases. She then relocated to Wisconsin and continued her practice, where she gained invaluable experience with Section 1983 claims, employment-related matters and other issues, and she also got her first experience with appeals.

Upon moving to Missouri following that, she focused her practice largely on business litigation and product liability defense before establishing her own private practice, where she began focusing on estate planning and fiduciary litigation. Her law firm currently operates as a division of PEAK, and Ms. Sullivan finds great reward in being able to assist so many clients in her area with their disputes involving their estates.

In recognition for her impeccable professionalism and client service, Ms. Sullivan has earned consistent top rankings and endorsements from her peers along with numerous testimonials and referrals from her satisfied clients. She also completed the Trial Practice Program sponsored by the International Association of Defense Counsel, and she is a member of the Association of Women Lawyers of Greater Kansas City as well as other local, state and national legal organizations.

A 2000 graduate of Tufts University, Ms. Sullivan studied abroad at Bond University in Gold Coast, Australia, before returning to the United States and pursuing her legal degree at the University of Wisconsin Law School. She obtained her Juris Doctor in 2003, and she is licensed to practice in Missouri, Kansas, Wisconsin, New York, Florida and California.

Committed to her local community as well, Ms. Sullivan is a member of Operation Breakthrough LEAP, and she has served as Kansas City chapter lead of the Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America.
