Audrey Berland for Georgia Court of Appeals

Experienced Litigator

Audrey Berland graduated from Lakeside High School in DeKalb County before graduating with honors from Tulane University with her B.S. in Psychology. Audrey earned her law degree from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio in 1994.

After law school, Audrey returned home to Atlanta and began her career as a civil litigation attorney. Audrey has been practicing law for 25 years, representing clients on both sides of disputes – including Fortune 500 companies, small businesses and individuals. Cases in her diverse litigation experience include claims involving environmental insurance coverage, product liability, construction defects, and contract disputes, to name a few. More recently, Audrey shifted the focus of her practice to business disputes, filing claims on behalf of and defending small to medium sized businesses, as well as individuals.

Audrey is a member of the Georgia Bar, the Atlanta Bar and the American Bar Associations. She is admitted to practice in the Court of Appeals of Georgia, the Supreme Court of Georgia and both the U.S. Northern and Southern District Courts of Georgia. Audrey has been a Master with the Bleckley Inn since 2009 and is the past Vice President and Treasurer for the Atlanta Chapter of the Georgia Association of Women Lawyers. She is a member of The Lawyers Club of Atlanta, named a 2019 Lawyer of Distinction, selected in 2020 to join the American Institute of Trial Lawyers, and was named a “Georgia Super Lawyer” in 2019 and 2020.

Meaningful Experience

All parties who come to our courts deserve to be treated with courtesy, fairness and as equals under the law. The range of Audrey’s experience is invaluable, even critical, to her ability to do so. Having stood in the shoes of parties on both sides of disputes, she has the perspective and insight to interpret and apply established law to the facts to determine the correct resolution, rather than rationalize a predetermined outcome.

Desire to Serve and Promote Trust

With a strong desire to serve, Audrey recognizes and welcomes the weight of responsibility this statewide position brings. She is committed to maintaining objectivity in Georgia’s judicial system and to promote trust in the community that all residents will be treated with impartiality in our courts. She also understands first-hand the need to provide clarity and guidance to practicing attorneys.

Integrity Driven

The motto of the Court of Appeals of Georgia is engraved into the wall of the courtroom. The message is a powerful reminder of the commitment that our judges make to Georgia residents every day and with every decision:

“Upon the integrity, wisdom, and independence of the judiciary depend the sacred rights of free men and women.”

Serving the Community

Audrey has always enjoyed serving her community in various ways. She currently volunteers significant time to the Atlanta Urban Debate League which is an empowering program offering educational programming and opportunities to diverse students. Audrey finds it tremendously rewarding to play a role in teaching students basic advocacy strategies, critical thinking, and the communication skills that will serve them throughout their lives. She similarly participated in the trial tactics program during law school, which had the same goals in mind, holding mock trial exercises with local public high school students.

Audrey has also engaged in programming geared toward mentoring elementary aged children in high-risk communities and has volunteered to be a contact for patients and caregivers in need of support as they deal with the daily challenges of living with cancer. Audrey has also enjoyed volunteering with Habitat for Humanity, Trees Atlanta and the Atlanta Volunteer Lawyers Foundation.

Married to fellow attorney Cary Ichter, Audrey has a twelve-year old son, Max, who attends Atlanta public schools. They don’t have a dog, but Max has them looking.
