Jennifer Little has spent her entire
career as a courtroom trial attorney

Jennifer Little has spent her entire career as a courtroom trial attorney- first as a major felony prosecutor in DeKalb County and now as a private practitioner serving clients throughout Georgia.  Ms. Little’s practice focuses on representing clients in sensitive, high stakes matters.

She has nearly two decades of experience prosecuting and defending a wide range of criminal and civil cases, and there are few fact patterns she has not seen.  She has garnered media attention for her representation of high-profile clients in some of the most visible cases in GA but also represents many little-known clients on relatively routine matters.

A seasoned trial lawyer with a statewide reputation as a dedicated and zealous advocate, Ms. Little is routinely called upon by elected officials, public figures, corporate executives and high-net-worth individuals to provide advice and counsel on a wide range of legal issues while simultaneously managing the media or other tangential concerns. In 2019, James Magazine named Ms. Little to their “Most Influential Politically-Connected Attorney’s” list.

Ms. Little’s practice, while diverse, focuses on white collar, government and internal investigations, sexual misconduct, general criminal defense and injury to persons and businesses.  She has a low-volume, boutique practice which allows her to focus on more exclusive clients who require a higher level of personal attention and discretion and who seek the JLL Difference she is known for.

Her specialty lies in her proactive approach to cases.  From the most routine to the most complicated cases, Jennifer quickly masters the complexities of the case and carefully designs a tailor-made offensive approach.  Ms. Little’s painstaking investigation, strategic planning and meticulous follow-through routinely results in cases never being brought, outright dismissals, and investigations or inquiries being closed with no findings of fault.  That’s why she says- “my best work, you’ll never hear about.”
