You may email her at firstname.lastname@example.org with your questions or legal excuse information and legal excuse affidavits or by clicking on her name on this page. You may also fax any legal excuse information or affidavits to 770-214-3584; Attention: Catherine. There is a message line to call with voice mail requests for legal excuses and deferrals. The phone number is 678-390-6257. Please review the legal excuses below. If you legitimately fall under one of the categories list, you will be either excused or deferred to a later date. ONLY LEAVE ONE MESSAGE PER SUMMONS! DO NOT LEAVE MORE THAN ONE MESSAGE!!!!!!(Multiple messages will not assure a call back any faster and they flood the line with unnecessary messages!!!) Please be advised that at any given time we have numerous jury pools selected and the message line may be backed up with incoming messages. The Jury Liaison Officer will listen to and manually record your requests for legal excuses or deferrals each day. Legal excuses will be excused and WILL NOT receive a call back. Legal excuses are listed below. If you fall under one of the legal excuses and you have satisfied the requirements, you will be excused!!!! Non legal excuses or questionable excuses will receive further instruction. Due to the number of jurors being summoned, written confirmations for legal excuses will not be issued. If you are unsure about your excuse and have not received a call back, please report to jury duty at your summoned time. At that time you will be given an opportunity to present your excuse to the court for consideration.
Please keep in mind that the Jury Liaison Officer has other duties within the Clerk's office and is extremely busy. Your calls will be returned based on importance and as time permits. If they are not returned, you will need to report for jury duty!
The following affidavits are provided for your convenience. Please read the descriptions below the links to be sure they apply to you.
