The Georgia Supreme Court issued a recent order regarding the unauthorized practice of law in Georgia Courts. While companies were once permitted to answer Georgia garnishments through any authorized agent, the law now requires that companies enlist a licensed attorney to answer garnishments filed in Georgia State Courts. The change in the law makes no mention of garnishments filed in Georgia Magistrate Courts, thus a company's right to utilize a non-attorney to answer a Magistrate Court garnishment appears to have remained intact.
