DeKalb County Solicitor’s General’s Office
The DeKalb County Solicitor’s General’s Office in the Stone Mountain Judicial Circuit has an opening for an Assistant Solicitor-General Attorney.
Due to the number of criminal arrest record history inquiries we already receive and the recent changes in Georgia Record Restriction law that allows for increased restriction opportunities for misdemeanor arrests and some misdemeanor convictions, I am looking to hire an attorney who can focus on these matters and accurately, effectively, consistently, and efficiently respond to and resolve Record Restriction matters, including Record Restriction Petitions, Retroactive First Offender Requests, and other criminal history arrest record filings or requests. These requests are time-sensitive, and the attorney must be diligent, conscientious, and thorough in their review of and responses to these requests as they come in to the office and/or through State Court.
This attorney needs to have at least 10 years of experience and be prepared to respond in a legal, consistent, and fair manner to criminal arrest record history requests, including any motions and in-court proceedings deriving from these matters. The skillset will include a command of the law specifically regarding Record Restriction (2013- current) as well as a generalized, experienced understanding of prosecution. This attorney will be able to assess criminal cases under the current law, write and respond to motions and petitions, and represent the Solicitor-General’s Office in court on these matters.
We anticipate the requests, petitions, and court proceedings will increase as more people learn about the recent changes in the law that have expanded the opportunities for record restriction of misdemeanor arrest records, which now includes many misdemeanor convictions. This role will also include the need to present, educate and train attorneys and others about the new Record Restriction laws, and the attorney should be prepared for projects concerning recent and any future changes in the law.
The works at the will of the Solicitor. This positions duties may vary based the needs of the Solicitor-General.
Salary range: $68,055-105,483
