Ivey was born and raised in Alabama, where she attended the University of Alabama (roll tide) and Cumberland School of Law. Ivey was in the top 15% of her law school class and a member of the Cumberland Law Review. While in law school, Ivey authored and published a peer-reviewed comment on obstetric violence (violence against women during labor and delivery).
During and after law school, Ivey worked at a small, cutting edge Plaintiff’s employment law firm in Alabama, gaining vital experience in every area of the practice. After getting married, Ivey and her husband (also an attorney) decided to move to Washington D.C. and begin practicing there.
Ivey’s practice is solely focused on helping employees who have been mistreated in the workplace. We devote our lives to our work and when the employee/employer relationship sours, it can be extremely emotional and hurtful. Ivey knows that good attorneys are good story-tellers who can advocate for their clients by telling their story in a persuasive and compelling manner. Ivey’s strengths include parsing wheat from chaff and continually reminding opposing counsel, the courts, (and sometimes her clients) about the “big picture.”
