Katja Hedding

Attorney At Law

Katja Kallis Hedding practices exclusively in the area of immigration law. Born in Finland and having lived, studied and worked in several different countries, the private practice of immigration law was a natural choice for her.

She enjoys living and working in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.

Katja will take great effort and care to help you through the complex US immigration system.


Katja holds three law degrees. Her American law degree was earned at Vanderbilt University law school (LL.M). Her two other law degrees are from the University of Helsinki (Finland) and Uppsala University (Sweden), where she graduated with an LL.M. degree; the equivalent of an American J.D. She has also studied international law in Israel and Germany.

Katja has been admitted to practice law in Tennessee and in Finnish and Swedish courts.


Katja has worked as an attorney in the Finnish Parliament at the Ombudsman’s Office and as a law clerk in a Finnish District court. She has also worked as an attorney in New York and Nashville.

She is a member of the Tennessee Bar Association and AILA (American Immigration Lawyers Association).


As a native Finn with excellent language skills, Katja is able to handle your case in English, Finnish, Swedish, Norwegian, Danish and German. With her unique international background and experience, Katja enjoys interacting with people from different cultures.

Being a U.S. immigrant herself, Katja has a good understanding of how hard it can be to go through the immigration/visa process.

Our client-centric approach aims to cultivate lasting relationships based on mutual respect and shared success.

“I would recommend Katja without question. She is the best. Thank you Katja for giving me my sons and their piece of mind. You will always be very special to us.”
