Stacy M. Ehrisman, Esq. 


Attorney Stacy M. Ehrisman was born and raised in the state of Iowa.  She graduated from English Valleys High School, a small, rural school with a class of approximately 30 people.  Stacy went on to attend the University of Iowa where she received her B.A. and graduated with highest distinction in December of 2005.   She studied Political Science, International Studies and Japanese Language and Literature.  Stacy immediately went to law school at the University of Iowa College of Law.  She wrote for the international law journal, Transnational Problems and Contemporary Issues, as well as competed in moot court.  During law school, Stacy completed an internship with a law firm in Madrid, Spain.  She later worked as an assistant county attorney in the Henry County Attorney's Office.  Upon graduation, Stacy received the Boyd Service Award for her dedication to community service throughout law school. 


After graduation in 2008, Stacy pursued her career in immigration law.  She began working for Steffas & Associates, P.C. an immigration firm specializing in international adoptions in Marietta, Georgia. She was soon transferred to Memphis and Nashville, Tennessee to practice litigation-based immigration law at the Frager Law Firm, P.C..  In 2010, Stacy found herself in New York City practicing all areas of removal defense and family-based immigration law for Youman, Madeo & Fasano, LLC.  While in New York City, Stacy was promoted to managing attorney of her firm's largest office due to her tenacity and passion.  Deciding that she had had enough of the "big city", in 2013, she decided to open her own firm in Gwinnett County, Georgia.  


Stacy finds gratification in her practice as an immigration attorney.  "I truly believe that I am fulfilling my unique purpose in life through my service to the immigrant community," she explains. "Our country is a nation of immigrants and we should never forget that."  


Stacy volunteers her time with the local American Immigration Lawyers Association - Military Assistance Program, providing essential training and support to U.S. Army JAG attorneys.  Additionally, Stacy is an accredited attorney before the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).  


In October of 2014, Stacy appeared on CNN Headline News as well as Fox News following a conflict with Immigration Judge Pelletier.  IJ Pelletier refused to grant Stacy a continuance despite the fact that she had her baby only three weeks prior.  In turn, Stacy filed a complaint against the IJ.  Stacy is a fighter: let her fight for you!

Alicia D. Taylor, Esq. 


Attorney Alicia Taylor joined the Ehrisman  Law Firm in April of 2018, eager to join the fight for immigrant rights.  Alicia grew up in a military household and spent the majority of her childhood on the tiny island of Guam  Though a US territory, Guam is home to various cultures, and it was here that Alicia developed her love for learning about people of differing backgrounds and experiences.  Alicia moved to the Atlanta metropolitan area in the 10th grade and continued her interest in other cultures as she studied Advanced World History. After high school, Alicia attended the University of Georgia where she focused her studies on social justice issues and graduated with a degree in Criminal Justice.  Shortly thereafter, Alicia went on to study law and graduate from Western New England University School of Law in Massachusetts.  While  in law school, Alicia participated on the Trial Team and the Prosecuting Attorney's Clinic where she developed her love for advocating on behalf of others.  Alicia's upbringing and exposure to many differing cultures fostered her love in helping others and pushed her toward a career in which she would be an advocate and a voice for those in need.
