Stacey Evans

Stacey Godfrey Evans practices complex business litigation, including extensive experience with False Claims Act and defamation claims.

She represented whistleblowers in a Medicare fraud case against a major dialysis clinic chain that settled for $495 million ($324 million of which was returned to the U.S. Treasury). This was the largest non-intervened whistleblower Medicare fraud case in history.

Stacey spent eight years as a securities and complex litigation attorney at Powell Goldstein, LLP, which is today known as Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner LLP. There, she represented community bank boards of directors and other executives in litigation and internal investigations.

She combines her unmatched work ethic with the savvy of a big firm defense attorney and the heart and practical touch of a plaintiff’s attorney.

Stacey is currently a State Representative and proudly represents House District 57, which includes portions of Atlanta. She was elected to serve this district in 2020. This is Stacey’s second stint in the Georgia General Assembly. Stacey previously served in the Georgia House of Representatives from 2010-2017, representing the Smyrna and Marietta areas of Cobb County. She currently serves on the Appropriations, Judiciary, and Retirement committees.

She is a “Double Dawg” having earned her undergraduate and law degrees from the University of Georgia. Stacey is very active in the community, having served on numerous community boards. She currently serves on the Board of Directors for G-CAPP (Georgia Campaign for Adolescent Power and Potential) and the UGA School of Law Board of Visitors and is a Master in the Lumpkin Inn of Court.

Stacey has also earned several honors for leadership and community service. For example, Stacey has been named to Georgia Trend’s “40 Under 40” list and the Fulton County Daily Report’s list of “40 Under 40 Rising Stars in the Legal Community.” She was also recognized by the Atlanta Business Chronicle in its article, “Up and Comers/Under 40 and Rising: 50 of Atlanta’s Most Promising Young Stars;” she was the youngest person in this group of distinguished Georgians. Additionally, Stacey was named to the Class of 2008 of Outstanding Atlanta.
