Productive and fun place to work with individuals who care about the community
Assistant District Attorney (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – September 20, 2016
A typical day at work includes a 10+ hour day, at least half of which were spent in the courtroom on a near daily basis. Learned how to successfully prepare and try cases before a jury as well as a judge (jury trials and bench trials). Learned to manage thousands of cases at one time, inclusive of maintaining working relationships with various law enforcement agencies on all levels (Homeland Security, FBI, Secret Service, DEA, and local law enforcement agencies). Learned to maintain communication with hundreds if not thousands of crime victims, establish great working relationships with fellow attorneys and the numerous judges. Management was generally great, with a few exceptions. My fellow assistant district attorneys, support staff, paralegals, and other co-workers were great to work with. The hardest part of the job was taking into account all of the factors that went into many of the serious criminal matters I handled, inclusive of the impact on the victims and the community.
The most enjoyable part of my job was punishing and putting dangerous criminals away, and helping victims recover and continue on with life, regardless of the circumstances.
