Mike Loebl is a partner with the Augusta law firm of Fulcher Hagler LLP, which he joined in 2001 following a clerkship with the Honorable W. Leon Barfield, United States Magistrate Judge for the Southern District of Georgia. In 1997, Mike graduated from the University of Georgia with a B.A. in Philosophy (Summa Cum Laude), earning his law degree from the University of Georgia School of Law in 2000 (Magna Cum Laude). As a member of the State Bars of Georgia and South Carolina, Mike’s litigation-orientated practice primarily involves the representation of commercial and individual defendants embroiled in civil litigation, although he also enjoys and solicits Criminal Justice Act appointments from federal trial and appellate courts. Among other bar-related pursuits in which he has been involved, Mike presently serves on a standing committee in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Georgia—one of the few remaining federal districts nationwide without a federal public defender—which advises the Court and makes recommendations to it concerning the CJA appointment process and management of the CJA panel.
When he is not working, Mike enjoys spending time with his many nephews and nieces, hiking in national and state parks, camping, imitating Bear Grylls, running, bicycling, training for triathlons, participating in shooting sports, reading about the U.S. Supreme Court and the federal circuit courts of appeal—and eating lots of pizza.
