Tracie Cason/Gwinnett Superior Court Judge
Tracie Cason serves as a Superior Court Judge in Gwinnett County presiding over Division 2. Judge Cason handles felony criminal cases, domestic and family law cases, and civil disputes. She was elected in 2018 in a contested county-wide election.
Judge Cason is committed to providing fair and impartial justice to all who appear before her. She wants citizens to know that they will always be heard in her courtroom. Before being elected to the Gwinnett County Superior Court, Tracie was a career prosecutor with the Gwinnett District Attorney’s Office.
Judge Cason’s judicial philosophy is based on keeping our community safe for everyone, especially the most vulnerable, and ensuring everyone is heard when it’s their day in court. Victims have rights, and so do the accused, and everyone’s rights must be protected and balanced to achieve justice for all. She also looks at root causes and how to prevent repeat offenses. She believes that accountability programs can help many non-violent offenders more than simple punishment, and preventing repeat offenses keeps everyone safer.
Tracie and her husband David have been married 14 years, and live with their dogs, Munson, Dooley, Erk, and Emma. She is a proud graduate of the University of Georgia and Baylor University School of Law and hopes to return to Athens for most Saturdays this fall.
