Civil Court Houses In The Atlanta Area

Anyone pursuing or defending against a personal injury lawsuit will need to get acquainted with the appropriate Georgia court house. While Atlanta is technically in Fulton County, the Atlanta metropolitan area comprises several counties and five in particular.   

In Georgia, State Court hears non-complex civil cases, Magistrate Court hears small claims and lawsuits asking for $15,000 or less, and Superior Court handles complex lawsuits and appeals from other courts.

Below is a list of court houses in the five-county Atlanta metropolitan area that hear civil actions. Talk to an Atlanta injury attorney if you need legal advice:
