Before moving to Georgia to work with Atlanta Legal Aid, Mrs. Polk briefly worked in criminal defense with the Hamilton County Public Defender’s Office in Cincinnati, Ohio. She began working for the needs of the indigent, working poor, and mentally ill when she began her career at Atlanta Legal Aid as an AmeriCorps fellow. Mrs. Polk next worked with people living with HIV, AIDS, and cancer as a staff attorney in the Health Law unit of Atlanta Legal Aid. She maintained a general civil practice with a heavy emphasis on family law and domestic abuse while working as the supervising attorney for the Gwinnett County office of Atlanta Legal Aid before starting Ashby & Polk.
