Laverne Lewis Gaskins
Augusta Circuit Superior Court Judge
I am an African American woman who has been practicing law for almost 30 years. My legal background is diverse. I have represented individuals in civil and criminal matters. I have litigated at all levels of state courts. I have represented the State of Georgia as a Special Assistant Attorney General. I have served as an attorney for three major institutions of higher education. I have judicial experience as an Administrative Law Judge. I grew up in East Augusta and graduated from Richmond Academy. I have deep roots in this community. I have a long history of public service, and I know I can make a difference. Our society must have trust and confidence in the legal system. To this end, I believe the judiciary should reflect the community it serves.
