Emma Bellamy

Associate

Emma Bellamy’s perspective as a lawyer is unique, having worked as a law clerk for two federal judges and as counsel for both plaintiffs and defendants. After graduating from Vanderbilt University Law School, she stayed in Nashville and practiced at a firm which represented small businesses in litigation and transactional matters. She also handled the firm’s ERISA disability cases and secured full benefits for all her clients without resorting to litigation.

Emma went on to clerk for Senior District Court Judge John T. Nixon in the Middle District of Tennessee, where she handled cases involving federal employment law, commercial disputes, and Social Security Disability appeals. Upon Judge Nixon’s retirement, Emma accepted a clerkship with Magistrate Judge Alan J. Baverman of the Northern District of Georgia where the majority of her cases involved employment law, Social Security Disability appeals, and housing and credit issues.

Emma has a deep appreciation for public servants and blue-collar workers. Her parents were Foreign Service Officers who devoted their entire careers to representing the U.S. in sub-Saharan Africa and Europe, where Emma spent her childhood. Emma’s father-in-law is a leader in his chapter of the Plumbers, Pipefitters, and Service Technicians and her husband manages local bicycle stores.

Emma participates in several neighborhood organizations, including her homeowner’s association, the Midtown Quality of Life Coalition, Midtown Alliance, St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, and the Piedmont Park Conservancy. Emma is also a member of the Atlanta Bar Association and the local and national chapters of the Brown University Alumni Association, the Federal Bar Association, and the American Constitution Society. She is passionate about women in politics, electoral reform, and voting rights, serving on the Voter Protection Committee for the Democratic Party of Georgia.
