About me

Anna began her law career by attending law school at Perm State University, in the Russian Federation. After graduating, she specialized in adoption and dependency law, advocating for youth who did not have a voice in the international adoption process. While practicing as an attorney in Russia, Anna gave this often forgotten population a voice in their own legal affairs. Anna's passion for family law, and family advocacy began during this time, and after meeting her husband Thomas, she immigrated to the United States, and began her career as a family law Attorney serving San Joaquin County, California.

​After immigrating to the United States, Anna attended a secondary legal education at Humphrey's College, Laurence Drivon School of Law in Stockton, California, where she attained her Juris Doctor Degree. During law school, Anna interned in the Pro Per Family Law Clinic in San Joaquin Superior Court, providing legal guidance to clientele who faced difficulties associated with the family law matters. It was during her time at the Pro Per Family Law Clinic that Anna's passion for family law was rekindled.
