Anna began her law career by attending law school at Perm State University, in the Russian Federation. After graduating, she specialized in adoption and dependency law, advocating for youth who did not have a voice in the international adoption process. While practicing as an attorney in Russia, Anna gave this often forgotten population a voice in their own legal affairs.

During law school, Anna interned in the Pro Per Family Law Clinic in San Joaquin Superior Court, providing legal guidance to clientele who faced difficulties associated with the family law matters. It was during this time at the Pro Per Family Law Clinic that Anna’s passion for family law was rekindled.
