Elect Layla Zon for Superior Court Judge
Alcovy Judicial Circuit

Proven Commitment to Justice

It has been an honor to serve the citizens of Newton and Walton counties in the District Attorney’s office for the past 19 years. 

“I pledge to be impartial, to adhere to the oath of office with integrity, and to enhance and maintain confidence in our legal system by respecting and honoring the judicial office as an office of public trust.”   

I have dedicated my entire legal career to the work of protecting this community I call home.  From a young Assistant District Attorney aggressively prosecuting the cases assigned to me, to the experienced District Attorney I am today, I have stood firmly for the rights of victims and the safety of our citizens. I have faithfully advocated for the rule of law passionately and compassionately for the people’s lives they effect on both sides of the courtroom. 

As a trial lawyer, I have prosecuted thousands of criminal cases through all stages of the process and have tried over 150 jury trials to verdict, including four Death Penalty cases.  I am proud to say that I have never had one of my criminal convictions overturned by the appellate courts which is a testament to my knowledge and understanding of the law and procedures in place to protect the rights of the accused.  My extensive courtroom experience uniquely qualifies me to preside over criminal and civil proceedings and especially trials. 

In my career, I have had the opportunity to argue before both the Georgia Court of Appeals and the Georgia Supreme Court on numerous occasions. I continually study the law and the decisions from these courts with respect to the interpretation of those laws, the procedure, and the rules of evidence. 

As a Superior Court Judge, I will apply the laws as they are written, by their plain language, and I will not attempt to override the will of the legislature in order to reach a certain result in the matter before me.  If elected, I pledge to be impartial, to adhere to the oath of office with integrity, and to enhance and maintain confidence in our legal system by respecting and honoring the judicial office as an office of public trust.   I would be honored to have your support in order that I may continue to serve the citizens of these two great counties as the successor to the Honorable Samuel D. Ozburn who is not seeking reelection.
