Legal Entrepreneur Elizabeth Garvish Featured in Atlanta Attorney At Law Magazine
Elizabeth Garvish is determined to make Garvish Immigration Law Group the happiest law firm in the county. As the Founder and Managing Member, the Atlanta immigration attorney and legal entrepreneur never set out to have a law firm made of women, minorities and immigrants but found that’s who shares her values, and what put her on the cover of Atlanta Attorney At Law Magazine in their Attorneys to Watch series.
“A happy team creates happy clients and in turn a happy and successful firm. I don’t share the same values as most of the attorneys I had worked with in the past. I eventually realized that I wanted my future to have more. More compassion, more flexibility, more joy and more freedom. I want Garvish Immigration Law Group to be the happiest law firm in America.
Creating a people-centered culture that prioritizes the values of family, trust and loyalty is key to my success as an entrepreneur.”
As a lawyer and business owner, Elizabeth is invested in entrepreneurship and taking financial risks to build a different kind of law firm. The firm’s corporate culture is based on client service and their #1 value is Clients Come First – and not that profits come first. In the politically charged world of immigration law, Garvish’s legal immigration team believes that when clients’ needs are prioritized and the entire team is focused on client happiness, success and profit will follow. The firm’s team has tripled in the past year and Garvish Immigration Law was recognized as one of the fastest-growing law firms in 2021. The firm is proud of its success at helping businesses bring foreign talent to solve U.S. labor shortages and helping individuals and families achieve the American Dream.
To create a happy workplace, Elizabeth fosters an entrepreneurial mindset and ensures that her team has access to the benefits that allow them to focus on careers and family. As a working mother, Elizabeth ensures that her legal team has access to the same parental benefits she has as a firm owner. When Elizabeth’s twins were born, she as the owner of a new law firm was only able to take two weeks off to be at home with her babies. She felt firsthand how little we actually support mothers in the workplace. The birth of a child is such a beautiful time that parents don’t get back once it is gone. Supporting mothers and giving generous parental leave and accommodations to the mothers on her team has created trust and loyalty with her team and a better and more productive work environment. the firm she worked at offered 2 weeks of paid parental leave. As an entrepreneur and firm owner, her staff receives 12 weeks paid maternity leave – and has access to more. From experience, Elizabeth knows that lawyers who are worried about problems at home can’t focus on their clients. Flexible hours, remote work opportunities and a commitment to employee happiness allowed Garvish Immigration Law Group to easily pivot and thrive when offices were closed during the pandemic – and results in low employee turnover and retaining a dedicated, talented team.
“Our firm’s commitment to client and employee happiness made it possible for us to pivot and thrive during the pandemic.”
Entrepreneurship isn’t taught in law schools. An important part of Elizabeth’s entrepreneurial focus is helping other entrepreneurs reach their potential and find success. In addition to running her firm and her own client roster, Elizabeth frequently shares entrepreneur advice, motivation and tips in videos, blog posts and on social media.
