Her focus is to assist clients in navigating the often complex and intimidating immigration legal system in the United States.

    Before opening her practice, Ms. Elliott represented businesses ranging in size from small startups to Fortune 500 companies in corporate and business law matters. This background gave her unique insight into how difficult it can be for companies to hire temporary foreign workers and motivated her to focus her own legal practice in the area of immigration.

    With a Bachelor of Arts from Agnes Scott College, Ms. Elliott attended Loyola Law School, New Orleans where she obtained a Juris Doctor. Currently, she is a member of the Georgia Association for Women Lawyers, the Technology Association of Georgia, the Atlanta Bar Association, and On Board. In 2018, she was selected by Attorney at Law Magazine as an Attorney to Watch.

    Ms. Elliott is currently an Executive Board Member for the GA-AL Chapter of the American Immigration Lawyers Association. She volunteers her time with KIND (Kids In Need of Defense) and by assisting victims of crimes in the United States.

    A talented and knowledgeable speaker, she has presented to the State Bar of Georgia’s Continuing Legal Education forum, American Immigration Lawyers Association, the Turkish American Cultural Association and Legal Experts Radio.
