Attorney Brittany Thomas Faith Selected By Super Lawyers As A Rising Star

Friday, November 8, 2019

Attorney Brittany Thomas Faith of the law firm of Grant, Konvalinka & Harrison, P.C. (“GKH”), in Chattanooga was named a “2019 Rising Stars” for the Midsouth region for the third consecutive year.

Super Lawyers is a nationwide rating service that utilizes a selection process consisting of independent researchers, peer review nominations and evaluations to rate outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. To attain Super Lawyer status, attorneys must first be nominated by their peers in Tennessee and only 2.5 percent of the state’s attorneys make it through the multi-phased selection process.  

Ms. Faith is a member of GKH's Immigration Group and focuses her practice on immigration, including family-based immigration petitions, employment-based petitions and humanitarian relief.

"She is committed to providing personalized, cost-effective immigration services for her clients around the world and across the U.S.," officials said. "Ms. Faith is very active in Chattanooga and around the South East.

"She serves as the chair of the America Immigration Lawyers’ Association Midsouth Chapter, which constitutes immigration attorneys in Tennessee, Kentucky, Arkansas, Mississippi and Louisiana.  She was part of the reinvigoration of SETLAW and served as president in 2015. She also is active with the young lawyers by serving as the co-chair of the ABA YLD Immigration and Naturalization Committee and the Tennessee Bar Association Young Lawyers Division East Tennessee Governor. Ms. Faith also serves on the board of La Paz of Chattanooga, which has been the inspiration for many of her service projects."

Ms. Faith lives in Chattanooga with her husband, Justin, and son, Bennett.
