About Dustin

Learn Dustin’s areas of practice.

Practice areas
  1. Litigation
    Approximately half of my practice is devoted to commercial or business litigation. I have successfully represented clients in cases of breaches of contract, real estate disputes, employee fraud and theft, debt collections, employment disputes, insurance coverage disputes, landlord-tenant relations, and a wide variety of other matters. Please see my representative cases for further information.

  2. Personal injury
    Automobile and trucking collisions are a large part of my firm's personal injury practice. We have decades of experience obtaining substantial recoveries for clients in these cases, including collisions of nearly every description between automobiles, trucks, tractor-trailers, motorcycles, and bicycles. These cases often involve serious injuries and complicated issues, including who was at fault, whose insurance will pay for the loss, and how much insurance is available to cover the loss.

  3. Constitutional
    As a former federal law clerk to the Honorable William C. O'Kelley, I have a very thorough understanding of constitutional law and have brought that understanding and experience to the already impressive constitutional litigation practice of Orr Brown Johnson LLP.

  4. Employment and labor
    Orr Brown Johnson LLP has extensive experience in the area of employment law. For over fifteen years, the firm has litigated in this field. Our attorneys have handled employment cases under federal laws such as Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (race discrimination, gender discrimination, pregnancy discrimination, religious discrimination and national origin discrimination), The Family and Medical Leave Act, The Fair Labor Standards Act (wage and hour disputes), The Americans with Disabi

Dustin Marlowe, a Jackson County native, graduated magna cum laude from the University of Georgia School of Law in 2006. During law school, Dustin served as the Senior Notes Editor of the Georgia Law Review, authored A Dose of Reality for § 6(c) of the Restatement (Third) of Torts, which the Law Review published, and was inducted into the Order of the Coif. Before law school, Mr. Marlowe attended and graduated magna cum laude from the University of Georgia, where he was elected a member of Phi Beta Kappa, the country’s preeminent honor society for the liberal arts.

Before associating with the firm, Dustin served two years as a judicial law clerk to the Honorable William C. O’Kelley, Senior United States District Court Judge for the Northern District of Georgia. Mr. Marlowe intends to take advantage of the knowledge and insight he acquired through his clerkship by focusing his practice on federal criminal defense, constitutional litigation, and civil litigation, including business disputes and catastrophic personal injury cases.

Unknown Attorney | Apr 08
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"Dustin is definitely one of the smartest lawyers I know. Whenever we have a difficult case to refer, he is at the top of my list of people to call. In addition to being a great lawyer, Dustin is just a wonderful person as well."
Litigation Attorney | May 10
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Dustin is known in the legal community as one of the "smart lawyers." He's the lawyer you call when you have a hard case---something that goes above and beyond the expertise and skill level of most attorneys. Whenever I have clients who call with complex business disputes or other complex litigation, I give them Dustin's phone number. I have never had a friend or family member have a bad experience with Dustin---exactly the opposite. I'm always confident when I send folks to his way because I know that he not only knows the "law" part of being an attorney---the technical, legal, procedural part---but he also knows how to take cases to trial in front of a jury---the people part."
