Co-author of “Handcuffing the Vote: Diluting Minority Voting Power Through Prison Gerrymandering and Felon Disenfranchisement,” published in The Scholar: St. Mary’s Law Review on Race & Social Justice

Emily Eby French is the daughter and granddaughter of dedicated Texas teachers. Emily grew up in public school in Wichita Falls, Texas, where educators nurtured her love of reading and writing. Before coming to Walsh Gallegos, Emily spent five years as a Voting Rights attorney at the Texas Civil Rights Project. While there, Emily testified on voting bills more than 30 times at the Texas legislature and trained over 1200 legal volunteers to provide non-partisan "customer service" for voters in 2018, 2020, and 2022.


Emily earned her law degree at the University of Texas and her undergraduate degree at the University of Oklahoma. She’s proud to be a graduate of both schools, but she disappoints the Longhorns in her life at least one weekend per year by cheering for OU in the Red River Rivalry. During law school, she volunteered with Youth Court at Webb Middle School, teaching legal processes and restorative justice practices to Austin teens. She also helped found the INCLUDE Disabilities Project, worked as a Dean’s Fellow, and served as a student attorney in the Civil Rights Clinic.


Emily and her husband Mike live in Austin. They spend a lot of time at the movies, and slightly less time at comedy shows and music festivals around town. Emily focuses her practice in the areas of Employment, Litigation, Students, and Election Law.
