Our Team

Bernadine H. Layne

Founding Attorney

Attorney Layne is a native of Massachusetts.  She graduated from Northeastern University in Boston in 1970.  She graduated from Harvard Law School in 1974.  She worked for many years with the federal government in Washington, D.C. before relocating to Atlanta, GA where she has been practicing since 1988.

Attorney Layne provides legal services in Personal Injury and Immigration Law.  She created the immigration practice because she has personal experience with immigration.  Attorney Layne is married to an immigrant, Dr. Edward Layne, a gastroenterologist and native of Barbados.

Layne Law Group always remembers that each case involves a real person and a real family whose lives will be impacted forever by our work. We are committed to providing the best legal representation available.

Patricia (Trish) Adler

Translator, Paralegal – Immigration

Trish is a translator for both personal injury and immigration. She is also an immigration paralegal for Layne Law Group.
