For the first 8 years of her career, Ms. Little was a major felony prosecutor in DeKalb County. Ms. Little prosecuted thousands of cases and tried well over 50 felony jury trials involving the most serious offenses possible including murder, armed robbery, rape, child molestation, kidnapping with bodily injury, white collar, fraud, theft, gang, home invasion and vehicular homicide cases. Ms. Little tried multi-defendant, complex cases involving up to 10 similar transactions, self-defense claims, the Gang Act, DNA, blood spatter, ballistics, fingerprints, accident reconstruction, and sexual diseases and injuries in children. She developed an exceptional ability to cross examine witnesses and won difficult convictions in cases with alibi witnesses, recanting victims, mistaken ID’s and co-defendant testimony. She tried more cases than anyone else in the District Attorney’s office for 3 years straight and was named the 2010 Attorney of the Year by the DeKalb County District Attorney. Despite having tried so many cases, not one of her cases has ever been overturned by a higher court demonstrating her exceptional command of the legal and evidentiary issues attorneys face at trial. While assigned to one of the few White Collar Units in the state, she obtained valuable experience handling large cases of embezzlement, securities fraud, mortgage fraud, racketeering and corruption. These multi-faceted investigations oftentimes spanned the State of Georgia and included multiple agencies such as the FBI, GBI, and Attorney General’s Office. She also specialized in the exploitation and abuse of elderly and disabled persons. As a younger prosecutor, she gained significant trial experience handling specialized matters such as DUI, domestic violence and juvenile court matters.

Following her time in the District Attorney’s Office, Ms. Little was a partner at Fried Bonder White, LLC for 9 years. In addition to developing the criminal and administrative practice  she is known for, while working alongside career civil attorneys, Ms. Little finely tuned her civil litigation skills on personal injury and business litigation matters. Ms. Little fought to recover money for clients who were personally injured due to the negligence of others in automobile wreck, premises liability, wrongful death, and constitutional and civil rights cases. Additionally, Ms. Little recovered large sums of money for financially injured individuals and businesses in breach of contract, fraud, theft, discrimination, and wage disputes. Ms. Little served as legal counsel for corporate clients and handled a wide variety of business litigation, injury and employment issues as a result. She represented key employees during government investigations, served as lead counsel on litigation matters, consulted on large litigation teams, collected judgments, negotiated settlement agreements, and pursued employees for theft and misconduct.
