I, Richard C. Armond, grew up in Gwinnett County, Georgia and attended Brookwood High School. I then attended the University of Georgia for undergraduate studies and Georgia State University College of Law for law school, working as an insurance adjuster for a year in between.
Upon graduation from law school I spent nine and a half years as a prosecutor in Gwinnett County. I worked as an Assistant Solicitor-General in the Gwinnett Solicitor's Office (the office that handles all Gwinnett State Court and Gwinnett Recorder's Court misdemeanor and traffic violation cases including all cases bound over from municipal courts located in Gwinnett) from November 2007 through January 2011, quickly rising to become supervisor (Lead Assistant Solicitor-General) of a trial division in Gwinnett State Court. In that role I handled a high volume caseload and gained significant jury trial experience while prosecuting some of the most serious cases in Gwinnett State Court.
I was fortunate to advance to the Gwinnett District Attorney's Office, where I was hired in January 2011. I worked there for over six years as a felony prosecutor, first as an Assistant District Attorney from January 2011 through January 2014, and then quickly rising to the position of supervisor in a felony trial courtroom as a Senior/Managing Assistant District Attorney from January 2014 until leaving to open my own office in May 2017. I was the lead attorney in cases involving murder, rape, armed robbery, aggravated assault, drugs, thefts, and all other levels of felony offenses, earning the title of “trial dog” from the District Attorney for taking to trial the most cases in a calendar year.
Why did I open my own law firm?
Why not go and work for another attorney or law firm? The son of a physician who has always been a sole practitioner, I want to be able to provide clients the individual attention their cases deserve much like my father provides to his patients. I have also seen how unsatisfying work at a major law firm can be as my older sister made partner and a top 100 corporate law firm. Most people who need a litigator, as a opposed to an attorney who drafts wills, handles contracts, advises businesses, etc., need a lawyer because they have gone through something very unpleasant such as a serious injury, the death of a loved one, or an arrest. It is an honor to give clients the individual attention their cases deserve.
