Attorney Profile

Jessica K. Stern is the managing attorney at STERN Law, LLC. Based in Atlanta, Georgia, she provides skilled representation to her clients throughout the greater metropolitan area, and she divides her practice roughly equally between criminal defense and immigration matters.

Ms. Stern's criminal defense experience stems from her work as a staff attorney with the Office of Public Defender, Atlanta Judicial Circuit, immediately out of law school. While she was there, she assisted more than 1,000 clients who were facing felony charges. The types of cases that she has handled have included drug possession and trafficking, robbery, burglary, assault, homicide, sex offenses, theft, embezzlement and forgery. Ms. Stern has obtained many successes in this area, including charge reductions, dismissals and acquittals.

In her immigration practice, Ms. Stern assists clients in obtaining family-based visas, helps those who are seeking green cards or citizenship, and defends people who are facing deportation. She also has experience in helping refugees who are hoping to enter the United States through the asylum process as well as immigrants who have been victims of domestic violence or other crimes.

Ms. Stern is a graduate of the University of Central Florida, where she majored in political science and received a Bachelor of Arts magna cum laude in 2005. She obtained her legal education at Northeastern University School of Law and was awarded her Juris Doctor in 2008. While she was there, Ms. Stern served several internships, including one with the Southern Center for Human Rights and another with the U.S. Army Judge Advocate General's Corps. She formed her own firm in November 2013. Ms. Stern has been named to The National Trial Lawyers: Top 40 Under 40, and she is admitted to practice in Georgia and before the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia.
