I became an attorney so that I can help people who do not understand the system that they face. I opened my own law firm to represent those who often need legal assistance the most--those facing criminal charges and immigrants.
I obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree from Emory University in 2007. I then attended Harvard Law School, where I helped prepare successful applications for asylum at Harvard's Immigration and Refugee Clinic. After graduation, I completed a fellowship with the Southern Poverty Law Center’s Immigration Justice Project, where I focused on protecting the rights of immigrant workers in the South. I did extensive outreach into rural communities in Georgia and Alabama.
I then began working as a Staff Attorney at the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals, where I worked on many cases, including appeals from criminal, post-conviction, civil rights, and employment decisions. I also addressed petitions for review from the Board of Immigration Appeals.
My law partner and I launched our own firm in April 2015, with a focus on criminal and appellate representation. We represent many people who have already been convicted of crimes and who are seeking to challenge those convictions.
