Candidate's Campaign Message

My primary goals as a member of the Board of Governors for the Dublin Judicial Circuit would be to provide the best possible representation for our circuit and its interests while also helping our legal community stay informed on important issues and discussions at the state bar level. I plan to work to the benefit of both our state and state bar, but the biggest part of doing that is making sure that our circuit has a voice.

To that end, I will strive to be aware of the issues we face individually and as a group, and will always be happy to talk and learn more about those issues. I will also work to keep our circuit informed on relevant issues at the state bar through local bar meetings and other means. In closing I would like to say that I have a great deal of respect for our legal community and I would consider it an honor to be its representative.

Education:

  • Mercer University (1999)
  • Mercer University School of Law (2002)

Personal/Family:

  • Brandon graduated from Trinity Christian School in Dublin, Ga., in 1995, and he continued to live in Dublin during college and law school.
  • After working for several years around Atlanta, he returned to Dublin in 2006 where both he and his family remain.

Professional Background, Bar Activities, Civic Activities:

  • After graduating law school, Brandon began working as an ADA in Newton County.
  • He later worked at an Alpharetta worker's comp firm before being offered a position at the DA's Office in Dublin, where he is currently the Deputy Chief ADA.
  • He is a former local bar president and is a long-standing board member of the Lighthouse Adult Daycare Center in Dublin.

Main issues facing the State Bar/position:

  • Greater access and representation of our concerns. I think in any area, but particularly those farther removed from metro-Atlanta, there is often a disconnect between the Bar as an organization and its individual members. In our current climate, the practice of law is particularly challenging, and our members need to know what the Bar can do for them and feel their voices are heard.
