Representative Ronnie Mabra, (D) District 63
State Representative Ronnie Mabra Jr. was sworn in as a member of the Georgia General Assembly on January 14, 2013. Ronnie serves as the State Representative for District 63 which covers residents of South Fulton, North Fayette, and South Clayton Counties. Ronnie is currently a member of the Judiciary, Higher Education, and Code Revision committees.
Ronnie has called Georgia home his entire life. He is a proud native of Fayetteville where he was a standout varsity athlete for the Fayette County High School Tigers. Despite several out-of-state opportunities, Ronnie was committed to staying in Georgia and attended the Georgia Institute of Technology.
Ronnie’s parents always stressed academics over sports. Ronnie eagerly took their counsel to heart. As a member of the All-ACC Academic Honor Team, Ronnie successfully balanced Georgia Tech’s rigorous academic requirements with the challenges that accompany playing four seasons as a strong safety. In 2000, Ronnie made the difficult decision to forgo the NFL Scouting Combine and instead set his sights on law school. Ronnie’s teammates fondly remember him traveling to away games with a defensive playbook in one hand and a law school study guide in the other. Continuing to keep his talent in state, Ronnie attended the University of Georgia School of Law.
In addition to serving in the Georgia General Assembly, Ronnie is also a dedicated trial lawyer and founder of the Mabra Firm, LLC., a personal injury law firm in Midtown Atlanta. Ronnie is an active member of the legal community. He is a member of the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association and the Fayette County Bar Association. In 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014 Ronnie was selected by Georgia Super Lawyers magazine to appear on its Rising Stars list, which features outstanding young lawyers throughout the state. In 2013 and 2014, Ronnie’s law firm was recognized as one of the fastest growing businesses in the country started by a University of Georgia graduate.
Ronnie is truly a rising star in the world of law and politics. During his first term, Ronnie passed a bill protecting the confidential and personal information of car wreck victims. It is rare for a freshman legislator in the minority party to pass a bill in the Georgia General Assembly, but Ronnie accomplished this feat.
Ronnie is married to former Ms. Dawn Brawley of Queens, New York. Ronnie and Dawn met during his last year of law school. The couple courted, fell in love, and were married soon after. Dawn, a health care professional, earned her Bachelor of Science degree from Cornell University in Human Development. She also has graduate degrees from Emory University in Public Health and Georgia State University in Educational Psychology. Dawn also serves as Chair of the Fayette County Democratic Committee.
Ronnie has a strong sense of obligation to Georgia for the many opportunities this state has given to him. Giving back and serving the people of the great state of Georgia, for Ronnie, it does not get any better than that!
