Additionally, she served as a clerk for Judge Clarence F. Seeliger in the DeKalb County Superior Court of Georgia.
Reisch is the founder of the Family Law and Child Advocacy Society at Emory University School of Law, and she served as the organization’s president from 2011 until her graduation.
Reisch earned her Bachelor of Science in psychology from the University of Florida, graduating cum laude in 2009. She graduated from Emory University School of Law in 2013 and was the recipient of the Dean’s Award for Outstanding Academic Achievement in Evidence.
“From an early age, I developed an interest in mentoring and coaching youth. This passion to help these vulnerable individuals has stayed with me,” said Reisch. “I am excited to join the team at Talenfeld Law and be a part of the nation’s premier children’s rights practice.”
