About me

Attorney Cornel Potra attended Regent University School of Law in Virginia Beach, Virginia and graduated in May of 2000. During law school, Attorney Potra prayed about the area where God wanted him to live and the area of law that God wanted him to practice. He took the Washington State Bar Exam in 2000, and he began Potra Law Firm in the attic of his Virginia home in January 2001, where he first practiced immigration law. Shortly after his wife's graduation from law school in 2001, they moved to Georgia to continue their work in this field, and he became a member of the Georgia Bar in 2005. Attorney Potra enjoys working in the field of immigration because this field enables him to integrate his education with his personal experiences as well as his passion for those new to this country. Attorney Potra sees immigration law as an opportunity to creatively and zealously fight for his clients.
