Katrina Partee-Croom was raised in Macon, Georgia but has roots in Chicago, Illinois. She began her undergraduate studies at Clark Atlanta University and graduated summa cum laude from Mercer University with a B.A. in liberal studies concentrating in literary arts and minoring in religion. She attended law school at Georgia State University’s College of Law where she sat on the founding board of the Student’s National Lawyers Guild for two years and focused on a concentration in Public Interest law.
During law school, Katrina began her advocacy work early after being sworn in under the Supreme Court of Georgia’s Student Practice Rule. She then began advocating for domestic violence victims, studied tenants’ rights, and interned with the public defender’s office in Clayton County, Georgia. There, she fought for indigent defendants and gained valuable trial and advocacy experience before working for a boutique plaintiff’s firm in Cobb County as a case manager.
Katrina began her work in personal injury prior to attending law school while working as a licensed liability and injury adjuster for one of the largest auto insurers in the nation. She spent years there learning how to evaluate, negotiate, and settle claims and she has brought that expertise to our firm.
Outside of advocacy, Katrina enjoys spending her spare time with her four children and husband exploring Atlanta, traveling, theater, and art.
