Chanel Payne, Esq

Chanel Payne specializes in personal injury, family immigration and family law. What she enjoys most about being a lawyer is continuing to be of service to those in need in her community. She works closely with Catholic Charities which led to a niche specialty in handling special immigrant juvenile cases for children sent to the border on their own.

Chanel graduated from Clark Atlanta University with a Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice in 2008. Subsequently, she earned her law degree from Ave Maria School of Law in 2013, becoming licensed to practice law in Georgia in 2014.

She is a member of the State Bar of Georgia and the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA). In addition to running her own law firm, Chanel created her own nonprofit to handle pro bono casework, Atlanta Immigration Coalition, where she seeks to help youth who achieved immigration status adjustments through Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) remain in the United States. In addition, she remains in touch with many of the juveniles she has helped with their immigration cases, including taking them on college tours.
