Ramona Toole has spent the last 17 years of her life zealously protecting the rights of the most vulnerable members of her community and making the community safer for them to live in and enjoy. Ramona earned her B.A. from Berea College, her MBA from Alabama A&M University, and her Juris Doctor from Mississippi College School of Law. Since passing the Georgia Bar in December of 2003, she has kept the streets of Atlanta safe as an Assistant Solicitor General in the City of Atlanta Traffic Court and as a Senior Assistant District Attorney in the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office.

While in the Atlanta Judicial Circuit, she conducted over 500 hearings and over 1000 witness interviews as the top Senior Trial Attorney in the Complex Trial Division. Needless to say, she has extensive experience prepping pre-indicted cases and conducting First Appearance and Preliminary Hearings. She is known for her trial and negotiation skills, research and writing mastery, insatiable quest for justice, strong analytical ability, and thorough management of detailed proceedings.

Not only has she developed this reputation for herself, but she spent over five years assisting and supervising young attorneys with trial preparation as well and supervising all interns and fellows assigned to the Complex Trial Unit. Additionally, she has experience in the Veteran’s Accountability Court and the Drug Accountability Court.

In 2016, she left the Atlanta Judicial Circuit and continued her prosecutorial career in the Gwinnett County District Attorney’s Office. Once there, she continued her stellar record of conducting felony criminal jury trials and prosecuting violent crimes. Ramona is a member of the Georgia State Bar, Court of Appeals of the State of Georgia, Supreme Court of the State of Georgia, United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit, and The Supreme Court of the United States.

She is also a member of the Georgia Association of Women Lawyers (Gwinnett Chapter), Georgia Association of Black Prosecutors, and Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. Prior to joining District Attorney Fani Willis’ administration, she tried everything from traffic offenses, armed robbery, carjacking and aggravated assault to vehicular homicides, murder, illegal possession of firearms and illegal manufacture and distribution of controlled substances. In short, she has been a trial lawyer in more than 60 jury and bench trials since 2004. She has passionately, competently, and consistently argued and won many appeals and will continue to do so for the citizens of Fulton County.
