Georgia Lawrence serves as an Associate at Southworth PC, specializing in the representation of former and current federal employees. Her expertise encompasses appearances before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the Merit Systems Protection Board, the Office of Federal Operations, and the Federal Court.

Ms. Lawrence's approach to law is rooted in a deep-seated commitment to service. This purpose-driven perspective is reflected in her professional practice, where she derives profound satisfaction from aiding others through her legal expertise.

Ms. Lawrence boasts a distinguished academic background, graduating Cum Laude from the Florida Coastal School of Law. Her dedication to community service and justice for underserved populations was recognized with the Barbara McCalla Memorial Award upon graduation. Moreover, she was honored with the highest Pro Bono distinction for her voluntary legal work in the community. During her time in law school, Ms. Lawrence contributed to the Law Review Board and the Moot Court Honor Board, earning several Book Awards for her exceptional performance in subjects like criminal law, trial advocacy, torts, contracts, and legal research.

One of Georgia's most memorable cases involved an older employee who was being unfairly targeted for removal by his agency.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:

Comfort Level
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?

Credentials
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?

Cost
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?

City
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?

Want to check lawyer discipline?

It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:

  • Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
  • Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
  • Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
