What are we measuring?
Judges of the courts that make up the Fulton County Justice System are able to observe the attorneys representing the Office of the Child Attorney as they advocate for the children they serve. The opinions of the judges is one good measure of how well the Office is performing it duties.
The Office of Child Attorney began surveying judges in 2018 and will report the results on this page on a quarterly basis throughout the year.
Why are we measuring it?
The Office of the Child Attorney's mission is to provide zealous and effective advocacy and to protect the legal rights of our child clients. The Juvenile Court judges preside over the delinquency hearings where our child attorneys and support staff perform their duties every day. Additionally, the Juvenile Court judges observe other attorneys and participants who appear before them in court and are in a unique position to compare and contrast the child attorneys’ performances.
