These comments were made by fellow attorneys during the annual nomination process.

“Dawn is the most ethical, hard working, caring, and effective attorney I have met. She manages her own busy practice with two attorneys and a paralegal under her, but she still finds time to get involved in the community and donate her time and talents. She just finished serving as President of the Cobb County Bar Association, she serves on numerous boards and committees and commits to pro bono work every month at the Cobb County Probate Clinic. She is a volunteer for the Cobb Justice Foundation and accepts many cases a year from the organization. She somehow still finds time be a great wife to her husband and a great mother to her teenage son. She also currently serves on the Board of Governors for Georgia. She often quoted in the newspaper for taking a stance against unethical behavior and bad practices. She is known for holding her peers to a high level of professionalism and ethics. She is incredibly generous and donates to countless charities every year. For clients who can't afford legal services, she always finds a way to help. Her billing practices are incredibly fair and almost every invoice is discounted in one way or another. I'm honored to know her.”

“Dawn Levine goes above and beyond for her clients. She genuinely cares about people and does the right thing even when its difficult. Her knowledge of her field and integrity in practice are superior.”

“Dawn is not only one of the best lawyers I know, but she is the kindest and most generous. Dawn has been running her own law practice for over a decade and has grown it substantially, while raising her son with her husband, who also owns his own law firm. By growing her law firm over the years, she has created jobs for people in the community. She has served as the Cobb Bar President in the past, and every office below that for many years. She is a Cobb delegate of the Board of Governors where she was elected years ago in a contested race. She donates countless dollars along with her time to the Chidlren's Emergency Fund and Legal Aid. She provides more pro bono hours that anyone can county, including helping organize and create the Probate Clinic in Cobb County where she provides free legal advice one a day a month. After the Covid-19 crisis hit, she provided free wills, powers of attorney, and healthcare documents to first responders and essential persons, all while trying to figure out how to keep her own business running.”

“Outstanding attorney and person!”

“Dawn is very knowledgeable, compassionate and skilled lawyer.”

“Dawn Levine is committed not only to providing her clients great service and sound advice, but also works to ensure professional responsibility and ethics is at the forefront of all lawyers' concerns throughout Georgia. A past-president of the Cobb Bar Association (2015-16), Dawn continues to serve the State Bar of Georgia as a current member of the Board of Governors. She is married with one teenage son, and enjoys her pets, gardening and travel.”

“Dawn is one of the most hardworking, intelligent, intuitive, and ethical lawyers I've ever met. Dawn owns her law firm, which has grown tremendously (and created jobs) over the last 10 years. Working with her, I have special insight to how she is behind the scenes working a client's case. She cares about each client and takes extra time with them when needed without complaint. She gives back tremendously to the community and provides countless hours of pro bono work. She has won too many awards and recognitions to count, but to give you a little flavor, a few being Cobb Legal Aid's Volunteer of the Year and Boss of the Year in Cobb. She was elected and serves on the Board of Governor's for Cobb County and helped create the Probate Clinic in Cobb where she volunteers each month. Dawn has served in every office of the Cobb Bar, and was President a few years back. She stays highly involved and is an officer in multiple sections of the Bar. She donates much time and money each year to Legal Aid and the Children's Emergency Fund. She participates in many community organizations and serves as treasurer and helps fundraise for DUI Court in Cobb, and other, accountability courts. In her spare time (haha) when she is not serving her clients, growing her business and creating jobs, or giving back to her community, she spends time with her husband, son (who just started college and wants to be a lawyer like his mom), her three dogs and three cats. Dawn is a huge animal lover and can't resist taking all the rescues home with her. ”
