Anastasia Allmon was born in Chișinău, Moldova – a small country in Eastern Europe. Growing up, she witnessed widespread injustice and prejudice, intensified by a steady economic downfall. This environment gave rise to her passion for human rights, civil liberties, and public policy. Anastasia moved to the United States at the age of ten, but has maintained her fluency in Russian. She graduated from Millsaps College in 2011 with a degree in Economics and Political Science and pursued her legal education at the University of Mississippi (“Ole Miss”), graduating with a Juris Doctor and Certificate in Criminal Law.
Throughout college and law school, Anastasia gained broad and meaningful experience working with both personal injury and corporate defense firms, as well as the Mississippi Innocence Project, where she worked to help wrongfully convicted individuals throughout the state. During her time in school, Anastasia also spent several months studying abroad in England, France, Italy, and Germany. She credits her unique background and travel experience for giving her an immense appreciation for cultural diversity, as well as fueling her desire to help people in need. Prior to joining Farris, Riley & Pitt in 2015, Anastasia worked for Child Support Services of Mississippi, where she gained valuable courtroom experience and managed a large caseload across four counties in the southwest portion of the state.
Anastasia is licensed to practice law in Alabama, Mississippi, and Georgia. She was named in National Trial Lawyers Top 40 Under 40 and recognized in B-Metro Magazine’s Top Women Attorneys in 2017 and 2018. Anastasia is a member of the Alabama Association for Justice, Birmingham Bar Association, Rotaract Club, and Junior League of Birmingham.
