Jason Marbutt is an Assistant District Attorney with the Cobb Judicial Circuit, specializing in white collar crime, public integrity, and elder abuse. He has been a prosecutor for more than 10 years, handling thousands of cases in all areas of criminal conduct. He started his career at the Cobb County Solicitor's Office handling traffic offenses and other misdemeanors, and has worked his way to trial experience with all types of crimes – including murder, domestic violence, child molestation, theft, forgery, and others. 

He is one of the few Georgia prosecutors with trial experience with cases involving the Georgia RICO Statute. He is also one of a handful of prosecutors in the State of Georgia who specializes in the prosecution of elder abuse, neglect, and exploitation. All felony cases within the Cobb Judicial Circuit that involve a victim age of 65 or older come across his desk. He is a regular lecturer and public speaker on the topic of elder abuse, and he trains law enforcement, as well as other prosecutors, on how to recognize the signs of abuse. 

Additionally, as a public integrity prosecutor, it is his job to prosecute crimes that represent a risk to the integrity of the judicial system. In this regard, he is a go-to prosecutor for crimes involving lawyers, law enforcement, and judges. 

His wife is also a graduate of Emory School of Law.  They have 3 children.
