J. Ansley Sluss of Sluss Law LLC has dedicated her life to making her community more welcoming and accommodating to the immigrant and under-served populations in Georgia.
Ansley learned Spanish when living as an exchange student at La Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile in Santiago, Chile. Thereafter, Ansley worked at a local free clinic, Community Advanced Practice Nurses, where she provided interpretation and case management assistance for Spanish-speaking patients, most commonly homeless women and children, as well as development and administrative support. This experience led to her eagerness to pursue a law degree and, later, cultivate her own law practice serving immigrant families.
Ansley began practicing law in 2013 after graduating cum laude with her Juris Doctor from Georgia State University College of Law in 2013. While in law school, Ansley interned at both Catholic Charities and The Latin American Association assisting immigrants pursue legal status through family and humanitarian visa petitions.
After passing the Georgia bar, Ansley practiced employment law and provided pro bono representation of immigrant victims of domestic violence through the Georgia Asylum and Immigration Network ("GAIN"). In 2016, Ansley launched her firm, Sluss Law LLC, which is conveniently located in the offices of Lawyers for Equal Justice, Suite 450, above the Peachtree Center MARTA Station, enabling clients to reach her without the time and risk of driving in the metro area.
While Ansley represents individuals and families secure legal status in the United States, she specializes in representing unaccompanied, abandoned, or dependent immigrant children in the state of Georgia to pursue Special Immigrant Juvenile Status.
Ansley continues to support the immigrant and underserved populations of Atlanta through service on various non-profit and community organizations, as well as volunteering for numerous projects around the metro area. Ansley currently serves as Vice Chair, Atlanta Legal Aid Society Service Council; Vice President, Leadership Committee and Chair, Newer Lawyers Affinity Group, Georgia Association for Women Lawyers; and, Board Member, Stonewall Bar Association of Georgia.
In her spare time, Ansley enjoys listening to podcasts, reading mystery novels, watching Wheel of Fortune, playing with her two dogs, and cycling around the city with her husband.
