Former Judge Andrew Margolis

Former Judge Andrew Margolis I am a practicing attorney and Judge of the Fulton County Magistrate Court. In 2016 I was a candidate for election to the Fulton County Superior Court.

My name is Andrew Margolis. I am a practicing attorney and Judge of the Fulton County Magistrate Court. I was recently a candidate for Judge of your Fulton County Superior Court. My father is a business owner, the third generation to work in the family business started by my great-grandfather in the 1930;s. My mother is a retired schoolteacher. Together, my parents instilled in me from an early age the values of honesty, integrity and a strong work ethic. These values have shaped the core of who I am as a person and form the basis of everything I do in my personal and professional life. I continue to try and bring these values to the bench as a Magistrate Court Judge. After graduating from high school in 1993, I graduated Cum Laude from Brandeis University where I received my B.A. in Politics and Legal Studies. It was while in college that I first began to realize what awesome power the law has to make people's lives better. I was part of a legal team that successfully sued the MBTA (the Massachusetts equivalent of MARTA), forcing it to provide better access for people with disabilities. This experience instilled in me the conviction that our courts need to be accessible to everyone, and that fairness and justice do not depend on the size of one's wallet. I began attending law school at Emory University in 1998, and graduated in 2001. Soon after beginning law school, I found myself drawn to the practice of criminal laws. Immediately after my first year, I began assisting attorneys in the Fulton County Public Defender's Office in representing clients who could not afford to hire their own attorneys. Later on, while still in law school, I began working as a prosecutor for both the City of Atlanta and for Henry County. These two experiences so close together afforded me a singular opportunity to see both sides of a criminal case almost at the same time. This dual experience helped me to be extremely effective in the handling of criminal cases later in my career. When I graduated from Emory Law School, I began serving as an Assistant District Attorney for Whitfield County, Georgia. As a prosecutor in Superior Court, I represented the people of the State of Georgia in the handling of all types of criminal cases involving serious felonies, including homicides, sex crimes, child victim cases, drug cases and family violence cases. I became one of the District Attorney's Office's family violence prosecutors and was placed in charge of all family violence cases in my division. I also served as lead drug court prosecutor and gained valuable insight into the effectiveness of treatment courts. I learned that for some offenders, successful and aggressive rehabilitative treatment through the court system can immeasurably change the lives of both the offender and the community. In 2004 I moved back to Atlanta from Dalton and opened my own law practice. I leared first-hand about running a business, operating an office, maintaining a budget and supervising employees. Building on skills and relationships gained as a prosecutor, I began to represent clients in criminal and family law cases. I am proud of my dual experience as a prosecutor and defense attorney. It is critical for a judge to be able to be fair to all parties. In order to be fair and arrive at a result that serves justice, a Judge must have the ability to see all sides of a case. I am the only candidate with experience as a prosecutor who has not spent his whole career looking only at one side of an issue in criminal cases. I will bring my diverse experience to the Fulton County bench and be truly fair to the people on all sides of a case. In 2012 it was my distinct honor to be appointed to serve as a Judge of the Fulton County Magistrate Court. As a Magistrate Judge, I preside regularly over all kinds of criminal and civil matters in the Magistrate, State and Superior Courts of Fulton County. As the only candidate who is currently a sitting Magistrate Judge, I can tell you there is almost nothing I take more seriously than having to decide whether or not I'm going to sign that arrest warrant that will let the police take away a citizen's freedom and put him in jail. I can promise you there is almost nothing I take more seriously than having to decide whether I'm going to sign that search warrant that will let the police kick in a Fulton County resident's door at three in the morning. There is almost nothing I take more seriously than my role in arriving at a fair and just resolution of your civil cases. I believe in showing respect to everyone with business before the Court. I believe in giving everyone the same opportunity to be heard. I believe in holding everyone to the same rules, and I believe in treating attorneys like the professionals that they are. I have brought all of this experience, dedication and sensitivity to the bench as a Magistrate Court Judge. I live within the city limits of Atlanta with my beautiful and talented wife Mindy, our four-year-old son Robbie, our two-year-old daughter Lily, and our two dogs. We regularly attend Ahavath Achim Synagogue, where we lead weekly services as a team and sing in the choir. It is my privilege to serve as choir director and to have served on the Board of Directors. When I'm not at work or spending time with my family, you can find me behind a set of drums, a keyboard, or with a bass guitar strapped to my shoulder playing and singing the blues in various music venues throughout the state. You might also find us at the Woodruff Arts Center listening to Mindy sing with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra Chours, a position she has held for over 20 years. Although not successful in my first run for elected office, I will be back in the future once again to ask for your help and your vote. I will bring to the bench the honesty, integrity, discipline and dedication I learned from my parents and strive to teach to our children. I will bring the sense of justice and fairness that has been instilled in me during my career in the legal profession. I will do my utmost to protect our community as a whole while at the same time respecting the individual rights of each and every person who comes before the Court. My family and I thank you for your support.

Congrats to my friend and colleague Clinton Rucker Esq., who was recognized as Assistant District Attorney of the Year by the Prosecuting Attorneys' Council of Georgia for his work on the Tex McIver case, the case that everyone said was unwinnable. Clint, you’re an inspiration - my own personal Don Quixote. You and your amazing trial team beat the hell out of that windmill.

Honored to serve and grateful for the recognition. Thank you State of GA Prosecuting Attorneys Council and Mr. Paul Howard. The historical context of the award is not lost on me and I am honored. #FultonJustice

Yesterday, Mindy Ellis Margolis and I cast our early votes for Fani Willis for Superior Court Judge in the primary runoff election. Folks, local elections are important, and have the most immediate impact on our daily lives, yet turnout is usually abysmal. Superior Court judges have immense power. They can put you in prison. They can let you out of prison. They can take your money. They can take your property. They can take your kids. We need someone on the bench who will conscientiously exercise that judicial power to promote justice, compassion, and common sense. Fani Willis is just such a person. If you haven't already done so, I urge you to vote to Elect Fani Willis Fulton County Superior Court Judge. Early voting is already in progress, and election day is July 24.

Looking forward to my transition from the general Trial Division to the Crimes Against Women and Children unit of the Fulton County District Attorney's Office. I’m proud to get the opportunity to stand up and fight for some of Fulton County’s most vulnerable citizens.

It’s been a busy Election Day. Started out with breakfast with Fani Willis, David Wolfe, BJ Bernstein and Renee Rockwell. It’s amazing to see civil lawyers, prosecutors, and defense lawyers all working together to put Fani Willis on the bench. #FaniForFulton

Voted this afternoon with Mindy Ellis Margolis

Planning on dropping by to see Louis Levenson this evening as he strives to become Fulton County’s first elected Chief Magistrate.

Remember, if you don’t vote, you don’t get to complain!!

Hi all - I haven’t posted here in a while, so I wanted to let you all know what I’ve been up to.

In March of last year I resigned my position as a Fulton County Magistrate and accepted a full time position with the Fulton County District Attorney's Office. I spent my first few weeks there working in the Complaint Room doing initial case intake, making critical charging decisions, drafting indictments, and presenting cases to the grand jury.

I spent the next few months in the non-complex division handling first appearance hearings at the jail and preliminary hearings before my former colleagues on the Magistrate Court bench.

Just after Thanksgiving I was promoted to the trial division and assigned to the courtroom of Judge Tom Campbell. I’m now handling everything from simple drug cases to multi-defendant armed robberies, car-jackings and assaults.

As a Magistrate Judge, my job was to do justice. I have the same responsibility as an Assistant District Attorney. I’m proud to continue to stand up for the people of Fulton County, and to work with an amazing team of lawyers, investigators, victim-witness advocates and legal assistants.

I’ll be posting here a little more often now, especially since election season is coming round again, and there will be an open seat on the Fulton County Superior Court Court bench.

No, I’m not running, but in my next post I’ll tell you a little bit about who is, who I’m supporting, and why.

Until next time...

One of the reasons I joined the Fulton County District Attorney's Office was so I would have more of an opportunity to be part of events like this. Thumbs up to my new boss Paul Howard, my friend Fulton County Solicitor - General Keith Gammage and to the Fulton County Family Violence Task Force for a great event featuring some truly inspiring stories.

Such an amazing Fulton County Victims' Rights Week Empty Shoe Ceremony and Walk today honoring survivors and the work of Advocates and all service providers who help them find safety and healing. Thank you to the Fulton County Solicitor General's Office and the Fulton County District Attorney's Office for co-sponsoring this event with the Task Force. Thank you to the Sheriffs Department, the Marshals, and GSU Police for security and road closures. Thank you to Atlanta Volunteer Lawyers Foundation, Atlanta Legal Aid Society, Inc., Caminar Latino, Partnership Against Domestic Violence, Raksha, Grady Rape Crisis Center, Georgia Center for Child Advocacy, Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, Latino LinQ, Georgia Department of Juvenile Justice, Ahimsa House, Jewish Family & Career Services of Atlanta - JF&CS, Tapestri Organzation, The Road to Recovery, Inc., and Georgia State University Office of Victim Advocacy for coming out to let our community know about services for victims. Thank you to all the survivors who bravely shared their stories. I am so humbled.

Congratulations to my friend and colleague Judge Scott Minter!

I am very proud of the work of my staff who worked diligently to bring justice to the young victims of this offense.

Senior Assistant District Attorneys Cara Convery and Rudy Harris prosecuted 37-year-old Joshua Arnold and 28-year-old Derrick Taylor for the offense.

Convery told 11Alive that the two men's sentences send a message: "That these children matter. This matters when it happens to anyone in this situation, and, most importantly, to people who don't have anyone to advocate for them. And that our children are precious, they absolutely matter, and [the jury's] verdict is important so that we can send a message to people who prey on children in any situation. And to let these defendants and anyone else in this situation know that it's not acceptable and that the citizens of Fulton County are not going to stand for it."

Today it was my honor and pleasure to be sworn as an Assistant District Attorney for Fulton County by the Hon. Ural Glanville. I now get to serve and protect our community full time.

03/01/2017

Friends and supporters: After much soul-searching, and after speaking with friends and family, I have decided to close my law practice and devote myself full-time to public service. I am proud to announce that I have accepted a position at the Fulton County District Attorney's Office. Although I dearly love serving as a judge, I ultimately decided I could do more good as a full-time prosecutor than as a part-time judge.

My mission to protect our community while serving justice has not changed. I'll just be doing it from the other side of the bench.

I'm sure there will be lots more to follow. Stay tuned.

I want to offer my most enthusiastic and heartfelt congratulations to Superior Court Judge-Elect Eric Dunaway. You ran a first-class race from day one. You are an honorable man and you're going to be a superb judge. I'm proud to have gotten to know you first as an opponent and then as a friend, and couldn't be happier that our families have become close. Mindy and I are looking forward to getting together with you and Julie soon.

The Margolises just cast our votes in the Fulton County run-off for two seats on the Fulton County Superior Court, and for Solicitor-General and Sheriff. If you haven't voted yet today, please make time.

These local elections are so critical. Character and temperament are just as important, if not more so, than resume - I have to believe that how a candidate behaves while campaigning is indicative of how he or she will conduct themselves once in office.

And if you don't vote, you don't get to complain later.

Fulton Judicial Candidates Work to Raise Awareness—and Money—as Runoffs Approach

Friends and supporters:

As a sitting Magistrate Court Judge, I am prohibited from speaking out publicly in support of one candidate or another for political or judicial office. But I did want to share the following article with you from the Fulton County Daily Report regarding the upcoming runoff election on July 26. As a recent former candidate for Judge of Superior Court, I have a particular interest in the outcome of those races. The actions of judges directly affect the lives of everyone who comes before us, and we should make it a point to be informed about each of the candidates' experience, judicial philosophy and temperament. Typically only three percent of the population votes in runoff elections. Please check out each of the candidates in these county-wide races, and make sure to vote on July 26. The candidates are:

Fulton County Superior Court Judge (seat being vacated by Judge Shoob): Eric Dunaway, Gary Alembik
Fulton County Superior Court Judge (seat being vacated by Judge Lane): Sterling Eaves, Belinda Edwards
Fulton County Solicitor-General: Keith Gammage, Clint Rucker
Fulton County Sheriff: Ted Jackson, Richard Lankford

Hope to see you at the polls on July 26!

With the July 26 runoff elections approaching and early voting already underway, candidates for two pending vacancies on the Fulton County Superior Court are...

It was good to be back on the bench today in the Fulton County Magistrate Court. Civilian warrant applications in the morning, and a civil calendar in the afternoon. Doing my part to help clear out the backlog of civil cases in the Magistrate Court.

This evening Mindy and the kids and I attended Friday night Shabbat services at Ahavath Achim Synagogue, and then the Sisterhood dinner and officer installation. Congrats to all the incoming and outgoing officers who were recognized tonight!

Today is the first time I can remember spending a full, complete day, from breakfast to bedtime, with my family since the beginning of the campaign in January. Breakfast at home, then we all went to Zoo Atlanta. It was Lily's first time there, and she was just kind of taking everything in. Robbie knew exactly what he wanted to go see and was our 'tour guide' for the afternoon. "Tigers, pandas, giraffes, elephants, rhinoceros, lion, and dippin' dots!" Then dinner at home - Daddy made sloppy joes, then baths for everyone, and lights out. What a great day.

05/27/2016

Back to work today after taking a mental health day yesterday to be with the family. I spent this afternoon with my fellow Magistrate and Superior Court Judges discussing issues related to the noncomplex criminal calendar in the Fulton County Superior Court. Good to be back at work.

Friends and Supporters:

The votes are in. We fought hard and long and honorably. Unfortunately, we did not gather enough votes to make it to the run-off in July, so this is the end, for now. Thank you to everyone who voted for me, supported me, and believed in me and our message. I could not have asked for more. Out of about 55,000 votes cast, we missed making the run-off by only about 3,000 votes, or about five percentage points. This has been an incredible experience for me. Being a candidate for office has opened so many doors for me in our various communities in Fulton County, and I fully plan to make sure those doors stay open. This will not be the last time I put myself forward as a candidate for elected judicial office. But until then, I am looking forward to resuming my duties on the Magistrate Court and continuing to serve Fulton County with honesty, integrity and dedication as a judge.

Congratulations to Eric Dunaway, who earned the most votes out of the three of us, and who ran a first-rate honorable campaign that focused on his particular qualifications for the office and on the issues that resonated with him.

Congratulations also to Gary Alembik for making the run-off. I am looking forward to watching this race in which there are now two candidates with vastly differing experience and backgrounds.

Thank you all again. I look forward to building on the relationships I have forged during this campaign, and hope you will all stay connected with me.

Take care,
Andy
