    Attorney Profile

    Bernard Brody is an accomplished criminal trial lawyer who specializes in the defense of sex offense allegations. In addition to Super Lawyers, he has been recognized by Georgia Trend Magazine, the National Trial Lawyers Top 100 and the National Academy of Criminal Defense Attorneys as one of the top criminal defense attorneys in the State.

    Bernard limits the number of cases he takes and exclusively defends individuals accused of sexual offenses. His small caseload and expertise in this area has led to an overwhelming number of dismissals and acquittals in some of the most difficult cases involving allegations of child molestation, rape and the possession of child pornography.

    Bernard is frequently invited to speak at trial lawyers seminars on topics including The Defense of Sex Offense Allegations, Computer Forensics, Appellate Advocacy and Federal Asset Forfeiture. He has handled a number of high profile cases and has appeared on CNN, HLN and truTV’s In Session to provide expert legal commentary. He is also the publisher of Georgia Sex Offense Law, an online reference manual that discusses legal issues concerning the defense of sex offense allegations in Georgia.

    Bernard graduated from the University of Maryland with a degree in Criminology and then graduated with honors from the University of Hofstra School of Law. He was selected to both the law review and the school's moot court team. He went on to serve as Associate Editor of the Hofstra Law Review and was a finalist in the New York Moot Court competition.
