About Me

L. David Wolfe attended the University of Georgia where he graduated in 1976 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Journalism.  In 1979 he graduated from John Marshall Law School with a JD and began his practice of law with the firm of Hudson & Montgomery in Athens, Georgia. On April Fools’ Day, 1982 he opened his own office in Atlanta and has continued that practice here to date.  David’s practice specializes in criminal defense work, and he has tried cases throughout the country in various state and federal courts.   He has handled many high-profile cases in Georgia of national interest, including his challenge to Georgia’s hate crime statute, which was struck down by the Georgia Supreme Court as unconstitutional.  He is a founding member of the Georgia Innocence Project and represented Clarence Harrison, the first inmate exonerated and released after 18 years imprisonment by the Project based upon DNA evidence.  He is a life member of the Georgia Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers and a member of the board of directors of that organization.  David has been an adjunct professor in the Litigation Department at Georgia State College of Law since January 2004 and also lectures throughout the state at CLE seminars on criminal defense, criminal litigation and criminal procedure.

    David Wolfe is hands down the best attorney I have ever worked with in my life. He and I worked together in a death penalty case and he was absolutely amazing. I consider him a mentor and a friend. He is simply an outstanding attorney.
