The attorneys at Downey & Cleveland are experienced litigators who handle cases in trial courts across Georgia. Licensed in each of the 159 counties in Georgia, you will regularly find us in courthouses across the State — from the large Justice Center in Fulton County to smaller courthouses in Gilmer, Haralson and Gordon counties.
From our offices in Marietta, Georgia, we are uniquely positioned to represent individuals and businesses in legal disputes statewide and in the large population centers surrounding metropolitan Atlanta, including the counties of Cherokee, Clayton, Cobb, DeKalb, Douglas, Fayette, Forsyth, Fulton, Gwinnett, Henry and Rockdale. In addition to our work in metropolitan Atlanta, we regularly litigate in counties across the northern portion of the State like Chattooga, Floyd, Fannin, Lumpkin and Hall, and we also are called on by our clients to represent their interests in middle and south Georgia as well, including in the heavily populated counties of Macon-Bibb, Columbus-Muscogee and Augusta-Richmond.
In these counties, our attorneys handle litigation matters in all of Georgia’s trial courts including:
- Superior Court (court of general jurisdiction overseeing all types of civil actions, including personal injury, premises liability, professional malpractice and land disputes)
- State Court (court with concurrent jurisdiction as Superior Court over various civil actions, including personal injury, premises liability and professional malpractice)
- Magistrate Court (court of limited jurisdiction handling non-jury civil disputes where the amount in controversy is less than $15,000)
- Probate Court (court of limited jurisdiction overseeing conservatorships, estate disputes and settlements of claims by minors)
As a litigation firm with deep roots in the legal and business communities, our trial reach extends into federal court, where our attorneys have litigated cases in the Northern, Middle and Southern districts and on appeal in the Georgia Court of Appeals, Supreme Court of Georgia and the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit.
