Christina Frate Bennett was born and raised in Upstate New York. She graduated from Clemson University in 1989 with a bachelor’s degree in accounting. She returned to New York for graduate school at Syracuse University College of Law, where she received her law degree in 1992. She was admitted to the New York Bar in 1993. She practiced law in Upstate New York until 2001 when she relocated to Atlanta, Georgia. She was admitted to the Georgia Bar in 2001. Her practice has focused on adoption law since 2009. In 2011, she started her own practice, Christina F. Bennett, LLC, in Suwanee, Georgia. She is passionate about adoption and helping children without parents find forever families. Since 2009 she has actively supported Promise686, Inc. (named after Psalm 68:6), a nonprofit adoption and foster care support organization.
“We would highly recommend adoption attorney Christina Bennett. We met Christina through the Promise686 ministry and from that first meeting we felt comfortable with her. My husband and I agreed that when we were ready to move forward with an adoption attorney it would be Christina. It was a pleasure to work with her, as she makes the whole process so simple and seamless. We hope to adopt again and would love for Christina to be our attorney once more.”

“Christina Bennett was an invaluable resource to our family as we finalized our international adoption. After years of managing correspondence with a variety of US and foreign government agencies on our own, the last thing we wanted to do once we finally got our daughter home was to wade back into another bureaucratic morass. Thankfully, Christina made that process simple, predictable, and understandable. She was a breath of fresh air after the many months of going it on our own. She clearly understood the requirements and had mastered the process. I recommend her services without reservation.”
~Bob and Susan
"Our two experiences with Christina showed us what an organized, smart, and generous woman that she is. We felt well taken care of, for sure! She knew her way around the courthouse and the laws of Georgia. I would recommend her to anyone else, 100%!”
~Troy and Cathy
“We have used Christina for two adoptions from foster care and have already signed up to use her for a third. Her work is always thorough, and she makes the process easy for us to follow and easy to understand. Her personable style is a great benefit as well. We have recommended her to everyone who has us asked about good adoption lawyers.”
~Jeanne and Bob
“We were very happy to have found Christina to represent us at our adoption for so many reasons. Christina provided us with excellent representation at a great price. Our adoption process was handled quickly and professionally. We loved that not only is Christina a knowledgeable attorney specializing in adoption, Christina knew exactly our fears and hopes during the process because Christina too, had walked the same path to adoption to grow her family.”
~Wendy and Larry
“We are so very thankful for the expertise and insight Christina brought to our adoption process. She was very knowledgeable of the finalization process and answered our many questions with great patience and confidence. We are so thankful for the assistance she offered and look forward to using her services again for our next adoption!”

After learning of the need for foster parents in the State of Georgia, she and her husband became certified foster parents. In 2013, they adopted a sibling group of two girls ages 7 & 8 who have happily turned their lives upside down.
