About Me

Our firm was established in 2013 by Rob Teilhet to give a voice to those Georgians who otherwise may never be heard.


 


We are trial lawyers focusing on working primarily for the benefit of those who have been injured at work or harmed by the negligence or intentional misconduct of another.  We also accept other types of cases on a select basis.


 


Prior to establishing the firm, Rob spent more than eight years representing corporations and insurance companies in courts across the State of Georgia.


 


Rob represented Smyrna and Marietta in the Georgia House of Representatives for four terms following his election in 2002 at the age of 28. In the legislature, he earned the respect of Democrats, Republicans and independents for his hard work, honesty, and integrity and served as Chief Deputy Whip of the House Democratic Caucus.


 


In his 2010 statewide campaign to become Attorney General, he raised more than $600,000 and earned more than 116,000 votes at just 36 years of age. Following the campaign, he was appointed by Governor Sonny Perdue to be Executive Director of the Georgia Public Defender Standards Council, the state agency charged with ensuring the representation of indigent criminal defendants. 


 


He has been named one of Georgia's Most Influential People by James Magazine, a "Star to Watch" by the National Journal's Hotline, one of Cobb County’s “20 Risings Stars Under 40” and one of The University of Georgia Alumni Association’s  “40 under  40.”  He has received awards for his public work from, among others, Georgia Conservation Voters, the Georgia Water Coalition, the Cobb County Association of Educators, Georgia Family Council, Georgia Psychological Association, and the Georgia Municipal Association.


 


 He is an adjunct Professor at the University of Georgia School of Law and a member of the Marietta First United Methodist Church Council.  He's a member of the Leadership Georgia Class of 2009.


 


Rob earned both his undergraduate and law degree from the University of Georgia. At the UGA School of Law, Rob was served as President of the Class of 2000.
