About me

I am a fully bilingual attorney (Spanish/English). During my career at the DeKalb County Public Defender’s Office, I acquired extensive trial experience and handled cases from first appearance through trial.  I have an excellent success rate in both misdemeanor and felony cases and will confidently represent my clients in any court appearance, including: first appearances, preliminary hearings, bond hearings, arraignments, pretrial calendars, jury trials and bench trials.  Additionally, my ability to speak Spanish allows my Spanish speaking clients to communicate directly with me, without the need of an interpreter.

  • Joseph Sam Habachy

    I strongly endorse Paola Torselli. She is smart and dedicated and hard-working. She genuinely cares for her clients and works tirelessly to get them the results they desire. I always enjoy working with her and seeing her smiling face in the courtroom. But behind the smile is a highly capable litigator. I have a great deal of respect for Pola Torselli and proudly endorse her.
