Magistrate Courts let you sue for money claims under $15,000 (fifteen thousand dollars). A Magistrate Judge decides your case after a trial. There is no jury. You do not need a lawyer. However, you may seek help from a lawyer.
GeorgiaLegalAid.org’s mission is to help low-income people navigate the complexities of the court system at the most vulnerable times in their lives through self-help resources when they don’t have access to a lawyer.
