Entry of Appearance

The State Court Bench requires an Entry of Appearance to be filed in all criminal cases stating in said notice if the attorney is appointed or privately employed. A form for this purpose is available in the forms section of this web site. See the form below.

Appointed attorneys appointed at the Magistrate Count level or in the Gwinnett County Recorders Court transfer appointment to State Court, but an order of appointment should be in the State Court case in the clerks office to insure documentation of the appointment.Attorneys appointed in Municipal Courts later transferred to State Court do not transfer appointment to State Court and appointment of an attorney if qualified would be a matter to be determined by the State Court judge.
