Justia Profile

Rob Teilhet established The Teilhet Firm LLC in March of 2013 in order to give a voice to Georgians who otherwise may never be heard. The Teilhet Firm exists to fight for people who have been injured at work or otherwise harmed by the negligence or intentional misconduct of another. Prior to establishing the firm, Rob spent more than eight years representing corporations and insurance companies in courts across the State of Georgia.

Rob represented Smyrna and Marietta in the Georgia House of Representatives for four terms following his election in 2002 at the age of 28. In the legislature, he earned the respect of Democrats, Republicans and independents for his hard work, honesty, and integrity and served as Chief Deputy Whip of the House Democratic Caucus.

In his 2010 statewide campaign to become Attorney General, he raised more than $600,000 and earned more than 116,000 votes at just 36 years of age. Following the campaign, he was appointed by Governor Sonny Perdue to be Executive Director of the Georgia Public Defender Standards Council, the state agency charged with ensuring the representation of indigent criminal defendants.

He has been named one of Georgia's Most Influential People by James Magazine, a "Star to Watch" by the National Journal's Hotline, one of Cobb County’s “20 Risings Stars Under 40” and one of The University of Georgia Alumni Association’s “40 under 40.” He has received awards for his public work from, among others, Georgia Conservation Voters, the Georgia Water Coalition, the Cobb County Association of Educators, Georgia Family Council, Georgia Psychological Association, and the Georgia Municipal Association.

He is an adjunct Professor at the University of Georgia School of Law and a member of the Marietta First United Methodist Church Council. He's a member of the Leadership Georgia Class of 2009.

Rob's record of service spans more than twenty years. In 1993, while a student at the University of Georgia, he helped to establish and operate a pre-school program for disadvantaged youth. He was a member of Leadership UGA, a Richard B. Russell Fellowship program promoting life-long leadership and community service. He also was a member of the Arch Society, which awarded him the distinguished Fred Brown Award on the basis of his leadership skills, campus involvement, and commitment to the University. Rob earned both his undergraduate and law degree from the University of Georgia. At the UGA School of Law, Rob was served as President of the Class of 2000.
