About me

Alex Susor is the founder and managing partner of the Law Offices of Alex Susor. Prior to staring his own law firm, Alex worked for five years as both a law student and an associate attorney for the well known Atlanta criminal defense lawyer L. David Wolfe. His practice consists of state and federal criminal trial defense, post-conviction criminal appeals, petitions for habeas corpus relief, civil forfeiture lawsuits, plaintiff’s personal injury claims, and representation of public school teachers in Georgia Teacher Fair Dismissal Act and Professional Standards Commission administrative hearings.


Alex was a co-recipient of the 2009 Georgia Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers "Case of the Year" Award for his successful appeal to the Georgia Supreme Court of the state’s kidnapping statute and was invited to testify as an expert before the Georgia Senate and Georgia House of Representatives Judiciary Committees on that issue. He is an alumnus of the State Bar of Georgia Young Lawyer’s Division Leadership Academy (Class of 2009), served as the co-chair of the State Bar of Georgia Young Lawyer's Division Criminal Law Committee and as Georgia Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers Vice-President for Fulton County each for three years, served two one year terms (2011-12; 2013-14) on the Board of Directors for  the State Bar Young Lawyers Division, and currently serves on the Board of Directors for the Georgia Innocence Project


A native of Marietta, Georgia, Alex earned his Bachelor of Science with highest honors in 1999 from Georgia Tech’s Sam Nunn School of International Affairs and his J.D. degree in 2006 from the Georgia State University College of Law. While in law school, he interned with both the Georgia Innocence Project, a non-profit dedicated to exonerating wrongfully convicted criminal defendants through the use of D.N.A. technology, as well as the Federal Defender Program, a non-profit law firm appointed to represent indigent criminal defendants before the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia and the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals.


During Alex’s third year at the College of Law, he served as a Senator in the Student Bar Association and was chosen by his peers as “Mr. Law School 2006”. Alex was also honored with a pro bono service award from U.S. District Court Judge Marvin Shoob for his work as a law student with the Southern Center for Human Rights’ Fulton County Jail Project, investigating a variety of systemic failures that led to severe overcrowding and substandard health and safety conditions at the jail. See Mark A. Kadish, The Fulton County Jail Project: A pro bono clinical view from the cellblocks, 23 Ga. St. U. L. Rev. 561 (2007). He also received academic awards for his superior performance in two courses: Litigation and Advanced Evidence.

Prior to attending law school, Alex was employed as a high school science teacher with Cobb County Schools and as a Case Manager with the Atlanta law firm Alston & Bird, where he worked for over a year on that firm’s historic investigation into the bankruptcy of Enron Corporation. He has also worked as a youth environmental conservation teacher at the Philmont Scout Ranch in Cimarron, New Mexico.


Alex is a member of the State Bar of Georgia, the American Bar Association, the DeKalb Bar Assocation, Georgia Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers,  the Georgia Tech Alumni Association, and the Georgia Tech Bar Assocation. He is admitted to practice before all Georgia State and Superior Courts, the Georgia Supreme Court, Georgia Court of Appeals, the U.S. District Court for both the Northern and Middle Districts of Georgia, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit and The Supreme Court of the United States. He was a founding member of the Sam Nunn School of International Affairs Alumni Network and is an Eagle Scout. In his spare time, Alex enjoys spending time with his wife and son, hiking, camping, tailgating for Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets football games, bowling, world travel, homebrewing beer, snow skiing, signing karaoke at the top of his lungs, and listening to live rock and roll and bluegrass music.
