What others have said about Hon. Adele P. Grubbs


Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: GA127
Dislikes investors generally and seeks out ways to rule against them, especially now that she is retiring. She has strange hang ups about estates and probate matters. Greatly unpleasant in person. One person will be chewed out almost invariably. Not a gracious person at all. Doesn't understand discovery timing matters and motions to compel. Also seems to not understand matters related to real estate conveyancing, joinder of necessary parties, and a plethora of other things I have seen in her courtroom. Can't maintain staff because no one wants to work with her and she is famous for yelling at everyone. Worst judge I have ever been in front of. There is absolutely no way to predict the outcome of the case based on the law alone, as she will decide it based on her own preconceived notions and feelings. I can say without a doubt that Georgia jurisprudence and its lawyers will be better off with her retiring in the summer of 2016.

Opposing parties walk into her courtroom. One will get screwed. Which one will it be? It's anyone's guess.

Judge Grubbs is a contemptuous curmudgeon. Her demeanor can change without warning. My experiences in her courtroom usually leave me wondering why I bothered going to law school.
