Judges are not only public servants, but the gatekeepers of justice. As a judge, I will ensure that every person that comes to my courtroom has the key to access it.
Judges should be decisive when needed, but courtesy and compassion do not have to be sacrificed in the process.
Accountability is critical to any judicial system. I am prepared to make difficult, but fair decisions that can be supported with law and reason.

Meet Taneesha Dobyne Marshall
Originally from Indiana, Taneesha Dobyne Marshall obtained her Bachelor’s degree in Political Science and Communication from Truman State University in 1999.
She then attended law school at The Ohio State University where she worked for the Dean and later served as a federal extern for U.S. District Court Judge Algenon L. Marbley.
She also completed summer law courses at the University of Western Cape Law School in Capetown, South Africa.
In 2002, Taneesha graduated with her law degree as well as certification in Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) and was awarded by the Dean with the John J. Adams Award for her distinguished leadership and public service. While in Ohio, she was a mediator for family courts and taught dispute resolution at local schools. Later, she would co-author a book endorsed by the Ohio Supreme Court - A Guide to the Courts: Mediating Conflicts Involving Children and Family
After moving to Georgia in 2002 to be closer to her family roots, Taneesha began working as a staff attorney for Judge Robert E. Flournoy, III in the Cobb County Superior Court.
Her primary role consisted of attending all court sessions and writing legal documents including reports, briefs, memos, orders, decrees and judgements.
Working daily with court administration, she gained essential familiarity with the Cobb Superior Court operations and processes.
In 2004, Taneesha went on to work for a federal agency as regional attorney and prosecutor. In that role, she successfully prosecuted, as sole counsel, hundreds of cases involving the enforcement of regulations involving drug use, falsification, criminal activity, illegal operations and other safety violations.
She also litigated, sought mutual resolutions, and/or provided legal advice to client offices on many other matters including workplace discrimination, conduct and performance issues, procurement, real estate and ethics.
She was the first attorney in the region to litigate and prevail in a “paperless” hearing involving 2 consolidated cases with co-complainants, 20 witnesses and evidence spanning over 7 years. When needed, she assisted the Department of Justice in civil cases as special counsel and Agency liaison.
As a 2013 graduate of an 18-month federal leadership program, Program for Emerging Leaders (PEL), she has since excelled not only as a litigator but an accomplished senior level manager of federal attorneys and staff in offices across the country. She was later requested to be both a PEL mentor and faculty member.
Since 2016, she has served in a dual senior management role as both the Manager of the Employment and Labor Law Division for the Eastern half of the U.S. and the Chief Regional Counsel of the largest region in a federal agency.
Taneesha would be the featured "Rising Star Manager" in a 2017 federal agency nationally syndicated newsletter.
Nationally recognized by the federal agency as a litigation expert and educator, she has both created and presented multiple advanced training seminars to federal managers and attorneys across the country on emerging legal matters including:
Gathering Evidence for Enforcement Investigation Reports
Sexual Harassment and
Hostile Work Environment Issues
Disability Discrimination and Reasonable Accommodations
Conduct and Discipline Matters
Race, Sex, Age and other Discriminatory Practices
Contracts, Leases and Condemnations
Ethics, Conflicts of Interest, and Nepotism
Effective Litigation Techniques
In addition, she simultaneously taught upper-level civil law courses as an Adjunct Professor at Georgia State University
