Avery is an election and voting rights lawyer in ELG’s Political Law practice group.

Before joining the firm as an associate, Avery worked in organizing and operations roles at a progressive political action committee and on multiple state and federal campaigns. She also gained election law and campaign finance experience working in the Political Law Group at Perkins Coie. While in law school, Avery interned with the legal team at the National Democratic Redistricting Committee and was a summer associate at Elias Law Group.

Avery is a proud graduate of Louisiana State University and the LSU Honors College’s Louisiana Service and Leadership Scholars program, which allowed her to work with her professors and peers to study and implement relief programs for state-specific issues, like coastal land loss and chronic poverty.

She received her law degree from Tulane Law School, where she represented plaintiffs during all stages of litigation as a student attorney in the law school’s Civil Rights and Federal Practice Clinic. She is based out of the firm’s Washington, D.C. office.
