The Legal Team at The Khaki Law Firm

Our accomplished legal team is dedicated to helping those in need obtain SSDI and SSI compensation and benefits. We draw on a wealth of knowledge and deep compassion to provide personalized, attentive assistance to our clients. Each member of our law firm has their own unique experience and deep understanding of the Social Security disability system.

Patrice Callahan- Hearing Claims Advocate

Patrice is a true Southern Belle – born in Atlanta, GA and currently resides in Snellville, GA with her husband of almost seven years, Patrick Callahan and their two daughters, Alissa Morgen and Ava Madison. Patrice has a B.S. Degree in Psychology from Georgia State University. Patrice has been working as a Social Security Disability paralegal since 2007. She joined The Khaki Law Firm in 2014 where she enjoys working alongside our caring staff to take care of our wonderful clients.

One thing Patrice wants clients to know about her is she has experienced firsthand how important receiving disability benefits can be to a family. While she was in high school, her mother began to receive social security disability after not recovering successfully from hip replacements and then later how her benefits continued to be important when she battled various cancers. Patrice brings not only experience dealing with Social Security at all levels of adjudication but providing that feeling of “I know what you are going through because my family has been where you are.” She thinks our clients will appreciate her compassion and concern for their situation(s) but will also embrace the fact that she will not sugarcoat the situation and will always give it to them straight.


Asia Taylor – Paralegal, Hearing Specialist

Asia is from Detroit, MI and moved to Atlanta, GA to escape the brutal cold winter and to attend Georgia State Law School. She graduated from Grand Valley State University with a B.S. in Criminal Justice and a minor in Legal Studies. Asia has always had a passion for law and helping others, and she has worked within the legal field for the past five years.  Asia has personally witnessed the Social Security process through family members who have gone through it.  She understands the importance of having support, guidance, and knowledge through this process. Asia has an older sister who has sickle cell and went through the SSI process during her teen years.

This experience showed Asia how a family that is frequently making hospital visits, and caring for a sick family member, does not have the energy left to fight Social Security for disability benefits.

Asia enjoys being part of a team that makes life a bit easier for a family or someone in need.  She is a determined individual with a can-do-attitude, and she uses these strengths to better assist our clients.


Nick Ellis – Paralegal, DAS Specialist

Although his given name is Dominick Ellis, everyone just calls him Nick.  He is originally from Indianapolis, IN, but recently moved to Atlanta to go to law school.  Nick attended Grand Valley State University as a Political Science major, because of his strong passion for law and improving the lives of others. He is also a member of the Army National Guard. Everyone who knows Nick describes him as a hardworking, driven individual which he plans to bring to each one of his cases. 


Stacey Zimmermann – Law Firm Administrator

Stacey has a background in video production and as a programs coordinator for a recreation company. When her daughter was born, she left her to job to take care of her and several months later came to work part time for The Khaki Law Firm. At the same time, she went through the SSI process. With no law experience but a lot of office administrative experience, she feels she brings a different perspective to the firm.

While she no longer requires or uses SSI, she feels that going through the process and being on it for a short time gave her a better understanding of what The Khaki Law Firm clients need and what they want from a lawyer. Her job here is to make sure that communication is happening – whether it’s staff to staff, staff to client or client to staff.  Her job is to build an environment that is both efficient and effective and allows the firm to provide the best possible service to our clients.


Holly Casey – Intake Specialist

Holly has been working in law for over 15 years. Although Georgia has become her home over the last three years, she is originally from Kansas, and that is where her journey with law began. She is blessed with a hard-working and loving husband of 20 years, three amazing daughters (Elizabeth, Bayli and Aubrie), and beautiful grandchildren. Her greatest hobby is simply loving her family and while that will never change, her dream hobby would be traveling the world with her husband. Law has become Holly’s passion over the years. Holly feels privileged to work at the Khaki Law Firm where she gets to work and interact with our clients, and she is always eager to help and think outside of the box for a client who is going through an especially tough time.


Amanda Patterson – Administrative Assistant

Amanda moved here from Ohio to escape the cold winter months. She is a recent graduate of The University of Akron in Akron, Ohio with a Bachelors degree in Applied Sciences and Technology with a minor is business administration. In past years, Amanda has worked in the medical field as a Nursing Assistant helping others who couldn’t help themselves. She also worked in home healthcare where she took care of people with physical and mental disabilities and experienced the affects that these disabilities had on those individuals first hand.

After graduating and looking for a career with her degree, she left the healthcare field to pursue her business aspirations. She landed a job at a company that helped those in the community with food and financial assistance. Not long after, her boyfriend of 4 years was offered a position in Alpharetta, Georgia and her dream of becoming a Georgia peach was becoming a reality.

She was lucky enough to find that The Khaki Law Firm was hiring and immediately applied. She loved that it was a small firm that specialized in Social Security Disability. Even though her career paths changed, her passion for helping others is something she was not willing to sacrifice. Law was not something Amanda was familiar with, but her willingness to learn has helped her succeed thus far.

When Amanda is not working, she enjoys reading. Any book that sparks her interest will be read within a few days. She also enjoys spending time with friends and family and loves to be social. Amanda is also animal lover and passionate about dogs.
