Tessa Martin


Marie (“Tessa”) Martin started working for Gentry Law Firm while attending Atlanta’s John Marshall Law School. After graduating cum laude, she joined the firm full-time to fight for families in Georgia.

Tessa takes your parental and marital rights seriously and clearly explains a client’s options, whether it’s a divorce, paternity case, custody dispute, or to enforce a court order.

Tessa’s Legal Background

Before joining the firm, Tessa worked for Cobb County Legal Aid, clerked for an Administrative Judge at the EEOC, and interned at a personal injury law firm in Dunwoody.

Tessa was Managing Editor of Atlanta’s John Marshall Law Journal, where several of her articles were selected for publication. She was also a member of the Moot Court team, where she earned a spot in the 2020 Georgia Moot Court Intrastate Competition. Tessa also worked as a research assistant for an Associate Professor at John Marshall in family law. She assisted in the publication of scholarly articles and worked as a teacher’s assistant to the incoming 1L class for Legal Writing during her final 3L year.

Tessa has been admitted to practice law in the Superior Court of Georgia, Georgia Court of Appeals, and Georgia Supreme Court.

Tessa enjoys exploring new restaurants, breweries, and dog parks with her fiancé and German Shepherd in her free time.
