Georgia Lemon Law - Attorneys

Attorney Scott Fortas    



Scott Fortas has been practicing consumer law since 1999. Mr. Fortas has successfully handled thousands of lemon law and auto fraud claims against automobile manufacturers and dealerships.  Mr. Fortas managed the Georgia division of Krohn and Moss, Ltd. from 1999-2005 prior to forming The Fortas Law Group and then becoming a partner of Hawkins Spizman Fortas, a criminal defense, lemon law and auto fraud firm in Atlanta, Georgia.  He is a member in good standing of the Georgia Bar and has been admitted to practice before the Georgia Court of Appeals.

Mr. Fortas continues in the tradition of practicing law as a descendent of former United States Supreme Court Justice Abe Fortas, a Lyndon Johnson appointee, who served on the Supreme Court from 1965-1969.  Justice Fortas sat on the court during Miranda vs. Arizona, a landmark Supreme Court decision that had profound legal and historical impact.  Abe Fortas was also counsel for defendant in the United Supreme Court case, Gideon v. Wainwright, which in 1963, affirmed the principle that every person charged with a serious criminal offense is constitutionally entitled to a lawyer and, if he is too poor to hire counsel, the state has a duty to furnish him with a lawyer.

Mr. Fortas graduated from the University of Arizona in 1991. He received his JD from John Marshall Law School in Atlanta, GA in 1995. After graduating from law school, Mr. Fortas worked at a civil litigation firm in Phoenix Arizona.
