Tekla Modebadze comes to us from the Republic of Georgia, where her legal education and professional experience focused primarily on criminal law and procedure. She received her law degree with honors in 2015 from Ivane Javakhishvili Tbilisi State University and her LL.M from Chicago-Kent College of Law in 2017. While enrolled at Chicago-Kent, Tekla participated in the criminal defense clinic and the tax clinic, and subsequently was awarded a teaching fellowship to further refine her studies in criminal tax law.

In her short professional life, Tekla has obtained a diverse range of legal practice experience, including a stint with the Ministry of Justice, where she analyzed and recommended statutory revisions to the Georgian criminal code, and a tenure at the Center for Crime Prevention, training high risk adolescents to become familiar with their legal rights and coping strategies. For several years, Tekla also served as the in-house legal counsel to an international manufacturing company, providing a variety of legal services and support.

Tekla joins the Tax Practice to support its litigation activities and expansion of services into criminal tax representation. She fluently speaks several languages, and will also be directly responsible for the firm’s marketing and social media initiatives.
