Former Judge. Former Prosecutor. Strong Defense.


Firm Announcements and Law Updates

Grand Opening of Leslie Spornberger Jones, LLC

Leslie Spornberger Jones, LLC proudly announces its grand opening. The law firm of respected former Athens-Clarke County municipal judge and prosecutor Leslie Spornberger Jones offers criminal and immigration defense services, handling both trial and appellate work. 

"After years as a judge and prosecutor, I was ready for new challenges where I could offer legal help to the many people who are underserved." Knowing that people facing misdemeanor, DUI, traffic, and local ordinance charges rarely seek the help of an attorney because legal fees can be so expensive, Leslie offers affordable legal information and representation services.

Minor traffic and local ordinance case information services start at $75, and representation starts at $250.  In misdemeanor, DUI, major traffic, and alcohol license violation cases, she offers flat-rate services and representation, and provides a free initial consultation in these cases. Leslie also provides representation in felony cases. 

As a prosecutor, she tried 40 cases before juries—including charges from driving under the influence to murder—and successfully handled 9 appeals before the Georgia Court of Appeals and the Supreme Court of Georgia. “My work as a prosecutor taught me how the State builds cases. With this experience, I can provide strategic and creative defense for my clients facing even the most serious charges.” 

“The immigrant population in Athens and surrounding counties is underrepresented. I offer immigration services--including representation in immigration court proceedings--to people needing help in a 15 county area surrounding Athens in Northeast Georgia.” Since the president issued his executive orders in January, many families seek help in deportation cases as well as making plans for family care and finances if a family member is detained. Initial in-person consultations for immigration services start at $150. 

To contact Leslie, call (706) 224-0321 or email, between the hours of 8.00 a.m. and 7.00 p.m. Monday through Friday, or between 10.00 a.m. and 12.00 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. 

Leslie provides legal services in Athens-Clarke, Barrow, Elbert, Franklin, Greene, Hall, Hart, Jackson, Madison, Morgan, Oconee, Oglethorpe, Taliaferro, Walton, and Wilkes Counties.
