PUBLICATIONS IN THE FAMILY LAW REVIEW
Daniele Johnson has had the honor of being published in The Family Law Review, a publication of the Family Law Section of the State Bar of Georgia, 3 times. Her articles are another indication that she has unknowingly been preparing for her run for the bench years prior to Judge Ingram made her announcement that she would not be running for reelection. Much of the attributes she hopes to bring to bring Cobb County Superior Court are reflected in her published articles.
For example, in her article “The Team Approach to Protecting the Best Interest of Children” written in 2014, Daniele Johnson tackles the question of whether a guardian ad litem should be required to provide written report at the conclusion of an investigation. After weighing the pro and cons of both sides of the argument, she concludes that a written report should be required so as to lend transparency and credibility to the legal process.
In 2018, her article “Cognitive Bias and its Impact on the Legal System”, Daniele Johnson explores the natural phenomena of cognitive bias. She explains that, while everyone, including judges have such biases, those biases should be identified and neutralized at trial. Rulings from the bench should be impartial.
Finally, she has recently written an article that is due to be published in the Winter 2020 issue of the Family Law Review, “A Book Review of ‘Know My Name, a Memoir’”. The article was written months prior to her announcement that she would be running for the seat left vacant by the Honorable Lark Ingram. In her article she commends the survivor of a horrific crime for sharing her story with the world. Ms. Johnson goes on to encourage all members of the legal profession and the media to do better for those who have suffered at the hands of others. Sentencing is meant to accomplish several things, including, but not limited to, punishment, protection; deterrence; and, when appropriate, rehabilitation. Regardless of the sentence, voices of the victims will be heard.
To Daniele Johnson, the concepts of legal transparency; credibility; impartiality; and intently listening to those who seek relief from the court are not mere words thrown out to the public when one is running for public office. She sincerely believes in these notions as reflected in the articles she has written well before she became a candidate for Cobb County Superior Court Judge.
