Republican Kelli Wolk for Cobb County Probate Court
   Hi! I’m Kelli Wolk, currently your Probate Court Judge in Cobb County. I hope you will vote for me as I seek reelection in 2020. I am happy to share my background and qualifications.

    I earned my law degree from Georgia State University College of Law and started my legal career in the Cobb County Probate Court where I worked for two years as the Law Assistant to Judge David A. Dodd. My two years clerking for Judge Dodd provided me  an  excellent  understanding  of  the workings of the court, the specifics of probate law, an appreciation of the complexities of legal issues, and the ability to help people who need the services of the court.
      From 2001 until 2008 I was in private practice with the Marietta law firm Moore, Ingram, Johnson & Steele where I successfully represented clients in probate litigation, estate planning, trust litigation, and other matters related to probate and the Probate Court.

      In addition to representing clients I have served in leadership rolls with both the Cobb County Bar Association and the Georgia Bar Association. I worked on the revision of Georgia’s Guardianship Code and testified before the Special Judiciary Subcommittee of the Georgia House of Representatives. I have taught numerous Continuing Legal Education seminars for lawyers and made professional presentations to groups of social workers, medical professionals, parents’ groups, and senior citizens about probate, guardianships, estate planning, advanced directives, and administration of estates.

      I was elected to my first term as Probate Judge in 2008 and reelected in 2012 and 2016.

      On a personal note, I have lived in California, Louisiana, Michigan, Missouri, Texas, and Utah, but I have never felt as at home as I have since I settled in Georgia twenty-three years ago. I love the spirit and compassion of the people in Cobb County. I am fascinated with its culture which reflects the intermingling of old and new. In addition, I am a Mom and I want my daughter to know the joy and confidence being part of such a strong community can bring. I enjoy traveling, spending time with my husband, daughter, and friends and long walks with my dog, Brewster.
