Margaret E. Randels
Maggy began her legal career as a judicial clerk to Thomas W. Thrash, Jr., the Chief Judge for the United States District Court for the Northern District of Georgia. There, she assisted the Judge in drafting orders and learned the intricate inner workings of the federal court system.
Following the completion of her clerkship, Maggy joined a large international law firm where she worked to defend a corporation facing multiple individual products liability suits as the result of a decertified class action. Additionally, Maggy took on several pro bono cases, including successfully representing the uncle of two unaccompanied immigrant children from Guatemala. Maggy assisted her client in obtaining guardianship of his nieces, the first step in obtaining special immigrant juvenile status for the children.
Since graduating from the University of Georgia, Maggy has remained active in the law school’s moot court and mock trial programs, serving as a guest judge as well as a team coach. Maggy also serves as a volunteer judge for the American Mock Trial Association’s college mock trial tournaments and as a coach for the Westminster Schools’s high school mock trial team.
Maggy and her fiancé, Doug, live in the Old Fourth Ward neighborhood of Atlanta.
