“I believe hope can be found in the midst of a family in transition.”
Meet Emily

As a Family Court Judge, Emily Maria Digenis will work to understand the impact on all families. She will work to issue common sense decisions in a timely manner while working to keep costs down by controlling the courtroom. As a product of Greek immigrants her parents not only taught her a strong work ethic, but instilled in her a desire to contribute to this world in impactful ways. Families are the backbone of our community, and we need someone like Emily Digenis to keep them healthy.

Emily is a native Kentuckian and graduate of the University of Kentucky College of Law with over 25 years of legal and business experience to draw upon to make family court work efficiently for our community.

She served both as a staff attorney in Circuit and Family Court and as a Trial Commissioner handling hundreds of emergency protective orders and child abuse cases so she understands the system, the sheer nature of the work, and the impact her decisions will have.

While working in the private sector, Emily serves as a legal advocate and volunteer for the Center for Women and Families, Home of the Innocents, Family Scholar House, and most recently, a Board Member of Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) for abused and neglected children. She has immersed herself in the areas she cares deeply about in this community.

Additionally, and perhaps most importantly, Emily knows firsthand what family court feels like because she was a litigant in family court. She experienced first hand family court’s highs and lows, literally agonized for years about pending decisions, and understands wholly the complexity family court holds over individual lives, particularly children.

Drawing on her diverse experience and unique perspective, Emily is well-equipped to make wise decisions filled with empathy and fairness that are in the best interests of our community. Jefferson County Family Court needs someone like Emily Maria Digenis!

Emily is married to Hunter C. Sattich, and they have two children.


Emily is proud to have the following endorsements for her candidacy.

Passion For Community.

"I want to be part of making a difference in family court with empathy and expediency."


"My passion, my heart, and my energy are all focused on the honor of serving our community."

In conclusion, Emily possesses likable and charismatic personality of a leader capable of making an impact."
