Attorney with private practice in Keesville, New Yord, Essex, New York, Cleveland, Ohio and Detroit, Michigan. Nominated by President Ulysses Grant to a new seat on the United States Circuit Court for the Sixth Circuit. Confirmed by the U.S. Senate on 17 Jan 1870 and served as Judge until his death.

"Emmons, H. H., late of Detroit, was born in New York; and, after acquiring the rudiments of a good education at the common schools, he became an assistant in the office of his father, who was the editor of a paper. He studied law; was admitted to the bar of that State; and soon afterwards settled in Detroit, where his father was already located as a lawyer, and with whom he became associated in the practice of their profession, about the year 1840. In 1843, his father died, and, in the year following, Joseph A. Van Dyke became his law partner. Although devoted to his profession, in which he had an extensive practice, he paid some attention to politics. He acquired distinction, during a period of commotion in Detroit, by defending the right of an American Protestant clergyman to preach against Catholicism, Irish repeal, temperance, or secret societies, or whatever he conscientiously believed to be injurious to the welfare—temporal or eternal—of his fellow-citizens. In 1853 his health became somewhat impaired by application to business, and he partially retired from active professional live; although his services were yet in frequent demand by the railroad companies of the State, whose business he had made a specialty. Early 1870 he was appointed by the President, Circuit Judge for the State of Michigan. He died in 1877." – Excerpt from "American Biographical History of Eminent and Self-Made Men, Michigan Volume," published by Western Biographical Publishing Co., Cincinnati, O., 1878.
