Attorney Daniele Johnson is running for Cobb County Superior Court Judge


Now that 2022 is here, a number of candidates are making their formal announcements to see the elected office. One such candidate is Attorney Daniele Johnson, who is running for Cobb County Superior Court Judge. Danielle is running for an open seat after the Honorable Robert Flournoy has decided to retire at the end of his term. 

The Superior Court system has exclusive jurisdiction over family law matters, including divorce, custody, legitimation, child support, and domestic violence. Many articles have appeared in SPOTLIGHT that advised citizens on these subjects. Superior Court also has exclusive jurisdiction over felony crimes, such as homicide, sexual assault, and aggravated assault.

Danielle believes that serving on the bench is a natural extension of what she has been doing for the last 25 years, serving families and communities. She has practiced family law in Cobb County for the last 22 years.  In addition, she is also a certified Guardian Ad Litem, meaning, she is trained and certified to represent the best interest of children. 

Prior to beginning her family law career, Danielle served as a Deputy District Attorney in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.  There, she was the lead prosecutor for misdemeanor crimes.  She was also assigned to the Special Victims Unit, a team dedicated to prosecuting felony crimes committed against children.  

Prior to her time as a prosecutor, Daniele was court-certified to represent victims of domestic violence in their pursuit of restraining orders against their abusers.  Danielle has dedicated her entire career practicing exactly the type of law the position of Cobb County Superior Court Judge calls for.  

Danielle and her husband have been part of the Cobb Community since 1999 where they are raising their three children within the Cobb County School system.
