I was born and raised in a small community in Bulloch County, Georgia, in a Christian home, where right was right, and wrong was wrong.

There was no “gray” area. Mama was a bank teller. Daddy and his brother founded and operated one of the first quail hunting preserves in Georgia. They worked hard every day. We were not rich, but my sister and I never went hungry. We had what we needed.

Growing up on a quail hunting preserve in south Georgia, I was exposed to people from polar extremes of the socio-economic scale. From day laborers to the wealthy members of his exclusive hunting club, I watched my daddy treat every person with respect and dignity. In return, they treated him the same. It wasn’t just the way he talked to people. If someone truly needed help, he would help them. It didn’t matter the person’s name, race, national origin, ethnicity, or other immutable trait, because those things don’t matter.

What matters, and the lesson I learned, is that we all share a common bond, and we can either treat each other with respect and have a pleasant, peaceful existence, or we can treat each other like something less than human and have a miserable time. God gave each of us the power to choose how we treat each other. I try hard every day to choose respect and dignity.

Through hard work, determination, and scholarships based on my grades, I completed law school and began the satisfying work I was meant to do. After a few years of practice, the law firm where I was working closed and I called upon God for strength. He did not let me down.

In January 1998, I opened the Marsh Law Firm in Statesboro. Since then, I have stayed true to God and his calling to use the law to help others. This has made all the difference in my life and career.

Top 100 Criminal Defense Lawyers in Georgia
American Society of Legal Advocates
ASLA’s exclusive membership comprises less than 1.5% of all licensed lawyers nationwide. ASLA is both highly selective in extending invitations and in determining which specialties to include for a given state. Because many specialties typically include listings for Top 100 Lawyers and Top 40 Lawyers Under 40, in order to remain selective we ensure that each specialty in a state has a sufficient number of practicing lawyers to merit inclusion. Those states with relatively low populations of practicing lawyers often will support only one or two specialties. ASLA monitors practice trends from year to year prior to extending invitations in each state.

Legal Answers
Q. I rear-ended somebody. Other driver took off. My car is totalled. I was cited for FTC. Can I have charge dismissed?
A: There is no way to answer your specific question with any degree of certainty because we do not have enough information. If there were no other witnesses besides you and the other driver, and assuming you have not incriminated yourself, the prosecutor will not be able to prove your guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. In that event, you would be acquitted, which is not the same as the case being dismissed but is effectively a win nonetheless. I disagree with Ms. Rice that the damage to your car should be covered under your uninsured motorists coverage. Uninsured motorist insurance is a matter of contract between you and your insurer and applies when the tortfeasor (the AT-FAULT motorist) is uninsured or underinsured. Here, you were the at-fault driver, so your uninsured motorist insurance will not apply. However, if you had no liability insurance and the other driver had uninsured motorist insurance, the other driver could make a claim for uninsured motorist insurance benefits. Think of uninsured motorist insurance like you are buying liability insurance for the uninsured driver. My website is
Q. I am seeking advice on specific case regarding a serious injury and first time offense of a car wreck.
A: Serious injury by vehicle is a felony. Your boyfriend needs to hire the best criminal defense lawyer he can afford, and follow that lawyer's advice. Quickly. The criminal case against your boyfriend is the state of Georgia versus your boyfriend, and the state of Georgia (through the District Attorney) is the one who gets to decide who to charge, which charges to file, and which charges not to file. If he hasn't already notified his liability insurer, he needs to do so IMMEDIATELY.
Q. My gf got in a wreck while driving on suspended license but was cited for not having license on her. She paid ticket..
A: By "report," I am assuming that you mean the accident report prepared by the investigating officer. If my assumption is correct, then what the officer wrote on the accident report is irrelevant. What matters is what the officer charged your girlfriend with and what she paid the ticket for. If the charge was driving without license on person, and she paid the fine for that offense, she may not have to go to court. However, some offenses carry a mandatory court appearance, so she needs to verify that fact by calling the Clerk, whose number should be on the back of the ticket. My website is
