About me

Jessica Gordon received her B.A. degree from Emory University, in 2001, where she was elected to Phi Beta Kappa. She received her J.D. degree, magna cum laude, in 2004 from Georgetown University Law Center where she was elected to the Order of the Coif and served as an Editor of the Georgetown Law Journal. She has a history in child advocacy and abuse prevention. During law school, Jessica worked for the Family Advocacy and Domestic Violence Clinics at Georgetown University Law Center. Through her work with these law clinics, Jessica has provided both policy advocacy and direct service representation. Following law school, Jessica served as a law clerk to the Honorable Phyllis A. Kravitch of the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit. Jessica then had the honor of teaching at Emory University Law School as a Post-Graduate Fellow through the Barton Fellowship Program. Through this program, she worked on promoting policies to help foster children find loving permanent homes. Jessica now lives with her husband and twin daughters in Marietta, Georgia. Based on her strong desire to help other parents find the same joy she did in completing her family, Jessica now concentrates on adoption law, family immigration, and surrogacy. Jessica is the President of the Georgia Council of Adoption Lawyers, a fellow in the American Academy of Adoption Attorneys and a member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association.
