Hannah Chung


Hannah Chung has extensive experience as both a civil practitioner and criminal prosecutor.  She began her legal career in New York City, where she advised large corporations in all aspects of trademark prosecution and litigation.  As a trademark attorney, she assisted clients by fighting off third-party infringers as well as defending their interests before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.  In 2006, Hannah moved to Atlanta where she served as an Assistant District Attorney in the Fulton County District Attorney's Office. She spent the next six years handling all types of felony cases, from pre-indictment all the way through to trial. In 2014, Hannah joined the Office of the DeKalb County Solicitor-General as an Assistant Solicitor-General and Community Prosecutor. In this capacity, she focused on cases that had the greatest impact on communities, such as prostitution, pimping, and pandering.  As a Community Prosecutor, Hannah spent considerable time engaging with community leaders and educating law-enforcement officers and private citizens on the finer points of the criminal-justice system.  She joined the Fulton County Magistrate Court bench in December 2015.

Hannah holds a Bachelor's degree from Wellesley College in Wellesley, Massachusetts, and a Juris Doctor from Brooklyn Law School in Brooklyn, New York. She and her husband are both members of the Leadership Georgia Class of 2017.  In her spare time, Hannah loves to bake at home with her two children, and take them on adventures to the far corners of the world.
