About Me

Daniel Partain began practicing law in 2000. He has been a public defender in the Alcovy, the Northern, and the Rockdale Judicial Circuits.


During his tenure as a public defender, Mr. Partain has handled a wide variety of cases. He has fought for the righs of children when they were brought to Juvenile Court for alleged acts of delinquency. He advocated for the rights of parents when they had deprivation or termination of parental rights in Juvenile Court. He has represented clients charged with felonies such as: murder, aggravated assault, armed robbery, sex offenses, controlled substances offenses, theft offenses, and property crimes. He has handled all aspects of criminal litigation including committal hearings, arraignments, plea negotiations, motion preparation and argument, judge and jury trials, probation revocation hearings, and appeals.


Mr. Partain feels that it is important to give back to the community. During his time as a public defender, he participated in the "Transition into Law Practice" program offered by the State Bar of Georgia to mentor newly admitted attorneys. Moreover, he participated in the Work Based Learning program offered through the Rockdale Career Academy to provide high school students the skills to work in a law office and a better understanding of the criminal justice system.


In August 2013, Mr. Partain went into private practice. He represents each and every client diligently and energetically with the belief that each person has a right to be treated with respect, dignity and fairness in the eyes of the law.
