Ulmer & Berne LLP congratulates Associate Georgia Hatzis, who was recently named as a Greek America Foundation “Forty Under 40” honoree. The distinction is bestowed biannually to accomplished North Americans of Greek descent, age 40 and under, who have both excelled in their professional endeavors and demonstrated care and concern for the world around them through philanthropic initiatives.
An attorney in Ulmer’s Litigation Department, Georgia focuses her practice on representing clients in complex business, pharmaceutical, medical device, and mass and toxic tort actions. She has successfully litigated in state and federal courts, handling pleadings and motion practice, pretrial discovery, trial preparation and practice, and appeals.
Greek America Foundation is a nonprofit organization founded to promote, preserve, and perpetuate Greek culture, history, heritage, and ideals in North America. The “Forty Under 40” award celebrates the Greek community’s top young talent in business, the arts, the sciences, and other fields. The winners exemplify both professional excellence and a demonstrated commitment to philanthropy.
“I greatly appreciate this tremendous honor and am truly humbled to be included in this 2018 class, alongside such talented, ambitious, and generous peers from the North American Greek community,” said Georgia.
Georgia volunteers with the Legal Aid Society of Cleveland and at the Greek Orthodox parish of Annunciation Cleveland, as well as in the Serbian Orthodox community. Georgia recently gave the Three Hierarchs presentation on the value of education and philanthropy to The Georgia Pappas Hellenic Cultural School of the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church of Cleveland.
Georgia earned her Bachelor of Arts degree from Baldwin Wallace University and her Juris Doctor degree, magna cum laude, from the Cleveland Marshall College of Law at Cleveland State University.
