Atlanta, Georgia


Ulyana “Uly” Hamilton joined Stern & Edlin in January 2017.

Uly is a native of Russia and grew up in the Moscow suburbs. At the age of 9, she moved to the United States and eventually settled down in Marietta, which she considers her second home. She is a graduate of the University of Georgia, where she received a B.A. in International Affairs, and a graduate of the Georgia State University College of Law, where she earned her J.D. During her first summer as a law student, Uly worked as a law clerk for two local law firms specializing in family law and found her passion in advocating for clients during one of the most challenging times of their lives.

She continued working in family law throughout law school and has been exclusively practicing family law since becoming a member of the Georgia Bar in 2016.

Uly is an avid Georgia Bulldogs, Florida State Seminoles, and Barcelona FC fan and enjoys spending time with her husband, Kyle, and their two border collies, Oreo and Cookie. Additionally, Uly enjoys traveling to different countries and learning new languages. She is fluent in Russian and French and has a basic proficiency in Spanish.

With her international background, Uly understands that families come in all shapes and sizes and that no two families are alike. Uly strives to approach each case with counseling and strategy tailored to each family's unique dynamics and characteristics.
