Adriana’s passion for advocating for and defending immigrants began before she even entered law school. Adriana fought for civil rights at the Georgia Commission on Equal Opportunity, investigating cases of housing discrimination and enforcing the Georgia Fair Housing Act. Amoung the people she assisted were immigrants who were discriminated against based on their race and/ or national origin. Adriana began her career in law clerking for the Public Defender’s Office in Washington DC. She later practiced as a criminal defense attorney which now serves to give her additional insight with which to better advise her clients with criminal convictions.
Adriana takes the time to truly listen to her clients and patiently educate them on their legal options.Adriana’s sincere concern and gentle confidence puts her clients at ease and allows her to build good rappor and effective client/ attorney relationships.
