Emily H. Capodarco is an attorney in Reinhart’s Trusts and Estates Practice, where she helps high-net-worth individuals and business owners grow and preserve their family legacies through estate planning. She works with clients to ensure all assets align with their estate plan and advises them on the tax implications of both current and future regulations.

Prior to law school, Emily served as a case manager at a nonprofit organization in the criminal justice field. This experience helped hone her communication skills, giving her a unique ability to connect with others and guide productive discussions. She enjoys supporting families by helping them identify their goals and then crafting and executing a successful estate plan that meets their needs.

While attending law school, Emily also earned a Master of Public Affairs degree from the Robert M. La Follette School of Public Affairs, concentrating on the domestic policy process. During that time, she served as a law clerk for the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Western District of Wisconsin. She also worked for the VOCA Restraining Order Clinic where she represented survivors of domestic violence and helped them to secure restraining orders.

In her life outside of the office, Emily enjoys taking on home renovation projects, trying new restaurants, vegetable gardening and spending time with friends and family.
