Michael Ross
Attorney

BIO
Michael Ross grew up in Marietta, GA.  After spending college and law school out of state, he decided to return home so that he could help the people of his hometown in Atlanta.  Mr. Ross litigated for six years at the Fulton County Public Defender's Office (the largest office in Georgia).  He handled thousands of felonies and misdemeanors while employed there.  Mr. Ross has extensive courtroom experience in all phases of a criminal case, including many trials.  He also worked on cases on appeal and post-conviction relief.  In Mr. Ross's first jury trial, his client was charged with Aggravated Assault with a shotgun on three police officers.  Mr. Ross' client was found NOT GUILTY.  He also convinced the Georgia Court of Appeals to uphold a dismissal of a 1997 Rape charge.  In a trafficking cocaine case, Mr. Ross successfully got a defendant's sentence reduced in post-conviction from 30 years in prison to 10 years in prison.  After six years and a wealth of experience at the Fulton County Public Defender's Office, Mr. Ross decided to start his own law practice so he could help those accused of crimes in all counties and cities in Georgia, not just Fulton County.
