When Are You Entitled to Attorney's Fees?

Understanding Georgia State Laws

In Georgia, there is a statute that sets forth the guidelines for when a party to a lawsuit is entitled to have their attorney's fees paid for them. The statute is O.C.G.A. §13-6-11 and states that although attorneys fees are not generally awarded, in a specific case a jury may find that a party is entitled to an award of attorney's fees. This is usually the case when an opposing party has acted in bad faith, has made the process unnecessarily difficult, or has caused needless expense. In a recent case handed down by the Supreme Court of Georgia, the Court reminded the state that the ability to award attorney's fees is for the jury and not the judge.
