Meet Lizz Kuhn

The New F.A.C.E. for Judge, Fulton County Superior Court

By Anna Teal

Attorney Lizz Kuhn is on the June 9, 2020, ballot. She is running for judge of the Superior Court of Fulton County. Kuhn wants to share her story of overcoming obstacles, so that voters can look ahead to more prosperous times. She is no stranger to challenges. Her strong drive is something to be admired and respected. During tough times, she not only survived she thrived.

It took me a long time to not be ashamed of where I came from, said Kuhn. Her past includes living in a battered womens homeless shelter at the age of 8, food stamps, clothes from Goodwill, and a broken family unit. I dont even want to tell people about the types of places Ive lived. 

Society often doesnt consider people like Kuhn to be college material. Despite this, through hard work and perseverance, she was awarded a full tuition scholarship to West Liberty State University, West Virginia, to become a music teacher. She played jazz alto saxophone and double tenor steel drums while at West Liberty and graduated cum laude.

In 2000, Kuhn packed up her Dodge Dynasty and moved to southern Connecticut where she taught inner-city youth how to sing. A year later, she became the conductor of an award winning chamber choir.

The school was rough, but I loved those kids. And while teaching music in an inner-city school was challenging, nothing was tougher than being in school with children whose parents worked in New York City on September 11, 2001, when the World Trade Center buildings fell.

After two years, Kuhn felt the need to help more people in society. Leaving my kids was the hardest thing I could do, but I wanted to do more. 

Kuhn attended law school at New England School of Law in Boston. During her time, she was the business managing editor of the New England Law Review and organized a symposium on stem cell research and human cloning. She also interned at the Massachusetts Family and Probate Court.

Much to Kuhns surprise, her law school peers nominated her as the Most Likely to Succeed. After graduating magna cum laude, she packed up her car and moved to Atlanta. After passing the bar in November 2005, Kuhn entered the courtroom to practice family law, personal injury, appeals, and bankruptcy. She also handled criminal defense work for innocent citizens.

Kuhn is currently in good standing with the Atlanta Bar, Georgia Bar, Georgia Court of Appeals, Supreme Court of Georgia, and Federal Northern District of Georgia. She is also a member of the Cobb Bar, Blue Ridge Bar, Stonewall Bar, North Fulton Bar, and the Womens Bar of Georgia.

In addition to a successful legal career, Kuhn is very active in her community. She coaches Upward basketball, is a wrestling team mom, and is an active member of her childrens Parent Teacher Organization. She fundraises for family violence shelters, serves as a foster mom for pets, supports her college alma mater and Georgia Tech, and donates to her local synagogue, as well. Kuhn also supports many local schools through her firm, Hait & Kuhn, which has a wall of plaques showing this support.

If youre looking for someone with a work, family, and community balance, Kuhn is your candidate for Judge of the Fulton County Superior Court. She stresses the importance of Fairness, Access, Commitment, and Ethics.

Her personal experiences guide her to be evenhanded and fair. Every case is different, and I will listen to the evidence, says Kuhn.

Access is attained by running a calendar efficiently, so lawyers are not being paid for sitting around. Paying lawyers to sit around makes attorneys cost-prohibitive, Kuhn says.

She believes everyone is entitled to an affordable court system and is committed to her community by being on time for trials and staying until business is finished. Lastly, her ethical nature serves as a compass for fairness.

How a Global Pandemic Is Impacting Voting Method Options on June 9
COVID-19, a global pandemic, reared its ugly head and forever impacted our nation. On April 9, Brad Raffensperger, Georgias secretary of state, took steps to curb the spread of COVID-19. In an effort to put the health and welfare of voters and poll workers first, Raffensperger established alternative voting methods and mailed absentee ballot request forms to all Georgians.
