Magistrate Court - Jennifer E. Lewis, Chief Magistrate
The Magistrate Court is Georgia's small claims court. You can pursue a case in this court with or without an attorney.
The court has broad jurisdiction to try and dispose of most civil claims when the amount sought or the value of the property claimed does not exceed $15,000.00.
The court can also hear dispossessory, writ of possession for personal property and garnishment actions.
Magistrate judges may also issue criminal arrest and search warrants, try county ordinance violations and misdemeanor bad check cases, set bonds for individuals arrested on criminal charges and hold preliminary hearings.
