The American Bar Foundation has made Grant, Konvalinka & Harrison director Brittany Faith a fellow of the organization.

The board of the American Bar Foundation limits membership in the Fellows to 1% of lawyers licensed to practice in each jurisdiction. The selection process includes peer nomination, after which the ABF board votes on inclusion.

Fellows must “demonstrate outstanding dedication to the highest principles of the legal profession and welfare of their communities,” a Grant Konvalinka statement on Faith’s election explains.

Fellows support the research of the American Bar Foundation through annual contributions and sponsor seminars and events relevant to the legal profession.

In addition to becoming an ABF Fellow, Faith is now co-director of the ABA Young Lawyers Division practice services committee. This is the highest position held in the ABA YLD by a Tennessee young lawyer since 2005.

Faith will be responsible for the ABA YLD over 25 practice orientated committees. She previously served as the chair of the ABA YLDs immigration committee.

Faith is a member of Grant Konvalinka’s immigration group and focuses her practice on immigration, including family-based immigration petitions, employment-based petitions and humanitarian relief.

“Brittany has shown passion and dedication to improving the practice of law for attorneys across the United States,” says Grant Konvalinka’s managing partner, David Harrison. “We’re proud of her accomplishments and expect there will be many more to come.”
