Molly Barrett Gillis represents individuals all over the State of Georgia. She represents victims of serious physical injury, wrongful death, trucking cases, insurance bad faith, premises liability and defamation. Molly also handles select administrative, traffic and criminal cases.

Molly started her legal career as a public servant. Over the course of her career, she has served as a prosecutor in two different circuits - the Cobb County Judicial Circuit and the Stone Mountain Judicial Circuit in DeKalb County. There, Molly gained invaluable trial experience prosecuting felonies, as well as misdemeanors. She tried over fifty cases to verdict, both in front of judges and juries. Recognized as a zealous advocate for victims and justice, Molly worked tirelessly to right wrongs and close painful chapters of victims’ lives.

Molly also practiced at one of the Southeast’s largest insurance defense firms under one of the nation's best and most recognized trial attorneys. There, she gained insight, knowledge and experience regarding how the insurance companies operate and litigate. This inside knowledge allows Molly to advise her current clients about what to expect, when to settle, and when to go to trial.

Molly previously served in an Of Counsel position for an Atlanta law firm that specializes in assisting law enforcement officers, as well as personal injury cases. Molly's experience in public service greatly assisted our fine men and women in law enforcement with any issues that arose.

Molly continues to have a heart of a public servant and believes that is a privilege to represent people who have been hurt, damaged, or wronged. She takes her role as an advocate seriously. She enjoys taking a limited number of cases per year so she can work closely with her clients.

Molly is married to Austin Gillis, Partner of Gillis Law Firm. The couple has two children, Emily and Jack. The family resides near the Marietta Square with their overactive black lab, Woody. Their philanthropic activities include Manos de Jesus mission in Guatemala, the University of Georgia, Oglethorpe University, the Extension, Live Safe Resources and St. Joseph's Catholic Church.

Go with the Gillis Firm
Working with Molly has been a fantastic experience. She’s professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. We really enjoyed getting to know her while working on my wife’s personal injury case. Couldn’t have asked for better legal representation. I would highly recommend partnering with the Gillis Firm if you’re in need of a skilled attorney with great experience.

Absolutely The Best!
I highly recommend Molly and her team at the Gillis Law Firm. Throughout my injury settlement, she was detailed and diligent, keeping me updated with where the case was and what the next steps were. She is very clever with her questioning and will fight fiercely for your case. In the end, she was able to settle the case for over our expected settlement amount. Like I said, Molly is exceptional and I highly recommend her and the Gillis Law Firm!

Great lawyer and now friend
Molly is hands down the best attorney that there is. Her compassion for her clients is unlike any other. I was involved in a accident while in my patrol vehicle. She guided my family and I through the entire process and called to check on us on a weekly basis. I have referred her to several other police officers because I know she will treat them right and get them the settlement that they deserve just like she got us.

My Best Court Experience By Far!
I am a police officer with 16 years of experience. I filed a defamation lawsuit against a woman who accused me of sexual assault during a traffic stop. Having Molly Gillis on my side to represent me in court was truly a blessing. Not only did we win the lawsuit to clear my name and reputation, but Ms. Gillis got me a judgement of $132,000! Her hard work and dedication to my case was absolutely amazing, and she kept me informed throughout the entire lengthy process. If you're looking for someone to represent you that will treat you like family, I highly recommend Molly Gillis.
