Darice’s first love was Broadway Musicals, but she lacked talent. Luckily, she applied it to her other first love – the law. Her mantra is "Defy Gravity" from the musical Wicked. She strives every day to Defy Gravity in the firm with personalized family resolutions to legal issues. Don’t be surprised if the theory of your family’s case is somehow linked to a Broadway Musical!


Darice brings energy and specialized knowledge to each of her families. From 2010 to 2016, she was a certified National Child Welfare Law Specialist (re-certification in progress). She is a member of the Georgia Supreme Court Committee on Justice for Children and the Steering Committee for the National Parents Representation Project of the Children and Law Center at the American Bar Association. Darice also co-authored the adjudication (trial) chapter of the first National Parents Representation book. Lastly, she is a member of the Georgia Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act (CAPTA) Panel.”


Her dedication and joy in the practice of

juvenile law is evident when you meet and

work with her. Darice was voted the 2015

Georgia Juvenile Attorney of the Year.

In 2014, She was honored with the Shining Star by the Multi-Alliance Agency for Children. She serves as a pre-tempore judge for Juvenile Court of Fulton County and teaches to juvenile attorneys nationwide.


When Darice first stepped into juvenile court, she knew she found her legal home. Darice is proud to represent families in juvenile court and is ready to help your family navigate her home.

Defy Gravity!
