Allison Whitfield is a native of Marietta, Georgia. She attended Auburn University, earning her undergraduate degree in Political Science with a focus on International Relations in 2010. In the Fall of 2010, she was privileged to intern for the State Department at its Mission to the European Union in Brussels, Belgium.
After considering a diplomatic career, Ms. Whitfield instead altered her focus to advocating for individuals instead of countries. She was a paralegal at various Atlanta law firms before attending the Georgia State University College of Law, graduating in 2018. While in law school, Ms. Whitfield received awards for “Best Brief” and “Best Appellate Argument” in her class’s moot court competition. She knew early on in law school that litigation was her calling. She became a member of the Student Trial Lawyers Association and competed in mock trial competitions throughout law school. Ms. Whitfield was also involved with the Georgia Innocence Project, Phi Alpha Delta law fraternity, and the Criminal Law Society. She was admitted to the Georgia Bar in 2018.
Ms. Whitfield began her legal career as a public defender in Clayton and Fulton Counties where she fought hard to achieve success for marginalized individuals. After countless hours in trials, hearings, and in negotiations in criminal defense, she has shifted her advocacy and courtroom experience to achieve the same successes for injured clients at Morgan & Morgan.
While not in the courtroom, she enjoys walking the Beltline, cooking new recipes, hiking, and attending Atlanta United games with her husband and daughter.
