Kyle H. Jarzmik
Attorney at Law
I was born in suburban Chicago, grew up in Charlotte, North Carolina, and attended Wake Forest University. After working for a large law firm while in college and graduating with a bachelor’s degree in economics, I attended Georgia State University College of Law in Atlanta.
During law school, I interned with the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Georgia. There, I was involved in the prosecution of federal drug, fraud, and white-collar crime cases. I was also given the rare opportunity as an intern to make arguments and question witnesses in a mail fraud jury trial in which the defendant was convicted.
After graduating from law school in 2008 and working for a year in a private civil firm, I joined the Office of the Fulton County Solicitor General in early 2010. For more than 5 years, I prosecuted thousands of criminal cases involving a wide range of charges. Among these charges were DUI, battery, theft, stalking, hit and runs, driving with a suspended license, vehicular homicide, reckless driving, speeding, and other traffic offenses.
Insight Gained from The Other Side
During my time as a prosecutor, I negotiated pleas, argued motions to suppress, and represented the State as lead counsel in numerous bench and jury trials. I also received training from police officers in how they conduct DUI investigations. These experiences gave me a unique insight into criminal law, which to this day benefits the clients I defend in criminal cases.
You see, having worked alongside other prosecutors and police officers, I understand how they think and what makes them tick. This gives me a distinct advantage when preparing a defense on behalf of my client. As I thoroughly investigate the facts and evidence, I consider all possible avenues in order to find the one that will give my client their best chance at a successful outcome.
Applying My Approach to Other Areas of The Law
Once I became established as a criminal defense attorney, I decided to expand my practice to include personal injury. I chose to make this change because, the way I see it, people who have been wrongfully injured need a strong advocate on their side — and who better to represent them than someone whose focus has always been on justice?
