Kristin Aquino-Pham has been advising companies and individuals on immigration and global mobility since August 2005. In addition to working at global corporate law firms, she built and managed a global mobility department as in-house counsel and served as COO, General Counsel, and Co-Founder to a technology startup. In September 2018, she took a year hiatus from corporate law firm practice to serve low-income immigrants and refugees as head of the legal services program at the Center for Pan Asian Community Services (CPACS) in Atlanta, Georgia. In this role, Kristin leveraged her extensive corporate experience and immigration program-building skills to enhance CPACS’s legal service offerings and further the program’s social justice initiatives.
Kristin joined Ogletree Deakins in October 2019 to resume her career as a business immigration attorney; but she continues to demonstrate her commitment to service through her deep involvement in the Atlanta legal community. Understanding the value of serving international clients in their native languages, Kristin is pleased to provide legal services in German, Tagalog, and Spanish in addition to English. In her free time, Kristin enjoys traveling with her family, cooking, and singing karaoke. She received her J.D. from Georgia State University College of Law and her B.A. from University of Georgia.
