Jessica Stern is the managing partner of the Crimmigration law firm, STERN Law, LLC.

While Jessica will always represent folks charged with serious felony and post-conviction matters, Jessica has mastered the challenging practice of deportation defense and enjoys helping families achieve immigration status through the immigration process.
Jessica is the past Chair of the Atlanta Bar Association’s Criminal Law Section and served on the board of the Women in the Profession Section for two consecutive years. She was recently appointed to the Bar’s Judicial Selection and Tenure Committee and the Atlanta Board of Ethics.
