Judge Reuben Green  
        Cobb County

Judge Green graduated with Honors from Emory University School of Law and received a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Political Science from Lewis & Clark College in Portland, Oregon. Before attending college he served on active duty in the United States Marine Corps.
Judge Green is heavily involved in the legal community as a member of the Marine Corps Association of Georgia Lawyers, the Charles Weltner Family Law Inn of Court, Cobb County Bar Association, and the State Bar of Georgia. He also participates annually as a judge in the Georgia Intrastate Moot Court Competition.  
He is on the Boards for the Rotary Club of Marietta and the Continuum of Care for Cobb County, and serves on the Advisory Board for the Atlanta Chapter of the Federalist Society. He has participated with a number of civic and professional organizations, including Rotary International, Boy Scouts of America, the Cobb Chamber of Commerce, Marietta Mentoring for Leadership, and the Marietta Pilgrimage Tour. Judge Green has also taught courses in law, professionalism, and criminal justice at Emory University School of Law, Kennesaw State University, and Chattahoochee Technical College.
Judge Green is a member of Johnson Ferry Baptist Church. He is married and has two children.
