Elizabeth T. Davenport
- Associate Attorney
Elizabeth Davenport was born and raised in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and spent most of her childhood moving from state to state. She moved to Atlanta, Georgia at a young age and considers it to be her second home. She is one of seven children on her mother’s side and one of twelve on her father’s side. This large family dynamic gave Elizabeth great insight at a very young age of how families work and operate with many moving parts.
After earning her undergraduate degree from Georgia State University, she took some time off to work at the Georgia State Capitol for Stacy Abrams. Elizabeth later relocated to Ohio, where she received her Juris Doctorate at Ohio Northern University, Pettit College of Law. Throughout law school, she was very active on campus and in the community. She was a member of various student organizations such as the Student Bar Association, Business Law Society, Black Law Student Association, Environmental Law Society, Flag Football Team, and High School Mock Trial Coach.
Elizabeth has dedicated a great amount of time to volunteering for various pro bono programs and legal clinics in Ohio, Georgia, and Illinois, offering legal assistance to those who could not afford legal services. The law school presented her with the “Pro Bono Award” for her time and dedication.
Throughout her academic career, Elizabeth has completed several study abroad programs in Japan, Cambodia, Vietnam, Thailand, and the UK. She has traveled to and lived in many countries around the world for work, study, and pleasure such as Jamaica, Canada, Cambodia, Vietnam, Thailand, South Korea, China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and England just to name a few; even spending time in Japan studying the stock market.
After graduating from law school in 2016, Elizabeth went on to work for the Atlanta Legal Aid Society, Fulton County Superior Court, and several personal injury firms. She then went on Sabbatical and moved to China. While in China she worked as an English teacher for Chinese students and teachers. She also coordinated and taught various extracurricular activities such as dance, drama, and basketball to further enrich each of these student’s experiences. While in China/Hong Kong, she also worked as an International Business Immigration Consultant and Program Manager.
Elizabeth has experience in a variety of types of law including family law, criminal law, juvenile criminal law, personal injury, international business immigration, and veteran law. In her new role with The Manely Firm, Elizabeth will focus on International and Domestic Family Law cases. Elizabeth is dedicated to giving back to the community and working pro bono. She is currently part of the judging panel for the Georgia Bar Association’s 2021 Statewide High School Mock Trial Competition.
